#BeforeAndAfterMondays 

 

This patient underwent a follicular unit transplantation Dr. Carlos K. Wesley in which a total of 4365 grafts (2 sessions) were placed. 

 

The patient’s hair follicles were incubated in platelet rich plasma PRP) throughout the duration of the procedure.  This, combined with an ATP-containing storage solution [URL=“https://youtu.be/owR_yeezZ0o”] has been shown to enhance survival of transplanted hairs [/URL].

 

As with all of Dr. Wesley’s patients, the patient  was NOT required to cut his hair for the procedure.  As a result, this patient was able to return comfortably to work and social activities within approximately 7-10 days of his procedure.

 

The patient returned 24 mos after the procedure and images of this patient can be seen below.

I appreciate that a picture of the scar was included. The donor area should always be considered as an important part of an end result, but for FUT in particular I think it's very relevant.

FUE scars can certainly give you a thinner look in the donor, but it's something that I think the average person might dismiss as DUPA or possibly a skin condition. A bad FUT scar is practically going to scream "surgery" which is something I'm sure most of us are trying to avoid.
