This is not a before/after. This is simply a patient we performed a two day, 5000 FUE graft case last week. The reason I am presenting this is that this patient previously went to a local plastic surgeon who had just obtained an ARTAS machine, and is marketing heavily here in the Charleston, SC area. During his consultation with the ARTAS clinic, he indicated he wanted coverage both in the crown and frontal area, and was told by the consultant (not the plastic surgeon), that complete coverage could be obtained with 1500 grafts. Looking online afterwards, he realized this was an absurd quote, and ended up coming to us. The point is for prospective patients to do their research before (and after) a consultation because there is some inaccurate information being given out, and just because someone has a machine does not make them qualified to perform the procedure.

Good point, but why not post a similar photo of patients coverage area post the procedure as well?

well...if the patient wanted a density of about 10 grafts/cm2 then yes, the plastic surgen would be correct. Thats pretty absurd if true. 

 

Im very curious to see the post op for this patient. Whats the maximum number of grafts you do over consecutive days?
