Dr. Bloxham: A Nice Little Hairline Repair | 3 Years Post Repair | Feller & Bloxham Medical, NY, NYC, LI

Recommended Posts

Today's case is an example of a nice little hairline repair procedure. 

The patient in the video had "1,500 grafts" (a big emphasis on the quotation marks there) at an outside clinic years earlier. He had great hair elsewhere and just wanted to fix some slight hairline recession. The clinic used follicular unit grafting, but simply did not go dense enough in the frontal band/hairline. The result was less than impressive, but the patient assumed this is all he could achieve and lived with it. Years later he did some research and realized that, maybe, what he had was not standard of care and decided to seek out another procedure. He presented to our clinic excited at the prospect of improvement, but somewhat skeptical that what we did here was different. Because of this, a conservative approach using 1,200 grafts was undertaken. The hairline was not lowered or adjusted, just addressed using dense packing. He did well and was thrilled with the results. Several years later after realizing what can be achieved with a hair transplant, he came down with a little bit of the "hair greed" and decided he wanted to flatten the hairline a little bit and really get that perfect density in the front. We used another 1,200 grafts to perfect it. 

He came back 3 years later to show us the results. Here are a few "teaser" comparison pictures. I only share a few because I really encourage everyone to watch the detailed comb-through video. Remember that there is only so much you can get from still photographs. Ask clinics you are considering to show you comb-through video! 

I wanted to state that we probably would not have recommended using so much donor in just the hairline IF the patient had any other signs of hair loss elsewhere. But because of his age, family history, and the fact that we (both Dr. Feller and myself) had seen him over a period of around 7 years with no noticeable change, we felt comfortable accommodating his request. 

I also wanted to thank this patient for allowing us to use his full face.

Did this patient start medications like ''Propecia'' or ''Minoxidill'' after surgery?

I'm hoping to get a reply from Dr. Bloxham on my question Thanks !

Hi Raja, 

Per our records, the patient has been on brand name Propecia for quite some time. Likely around the time of his very first surgery performed at the outside clinic. He did not start any new medications post-surgery, but did continue with the Propecia. 

Thanks for the question.

It is not until the comb through that you realize the true density.  Keep in mind that hair in the middle and the front grow an an angle towards the front and shingles.  This is why an in person evaluation is so important.

Nice work.......

Doctor, from time to time, would you mind taking photos of the scars in the donor?  This comes up frequently either because the scars are terrible or because the patient is concerned about moving forward because of it.  Thanks.

Thank you for watching and commenting. Thank you for the kind words as well. 

 

Absolutely. I actually try to include a scar comb-through in all of my FUT videos. I did not film this one myself, so it looks like I did not get scar footage. I will share some if he comes back, and do look out for pictures and video in future presentations.

looks very good. It doesn't look like a hair transplant. Nobody would ever know it's a hair transplant unless he tells them.

always love watching your videos and your results are always insanely natural

just for clarification am I correct in understanding the transplanted region ended up being dense packed at around 2400 grafts + the "1500" from a previous clinic?
