Hi all,

I had 1000 FUE yesterday in my crown. The whole procedure took about 6 hours (including harvesting and transplanting). I'd be interested to see if anyone with more experience thought the job looked good. To me it looks like their arent 1000 grafts and they look a bit to spread apart - but i'm not an expert.

Thanks in advance

Maybe not a 1000 but I would estimate between 500-600 at most.

It might make a decent change once grown out.  Time will tell.


4,312 FUT grafts (7,676 hairs) with Ray Konior, MD - August 2013

1,145 FUE grafts (3,152 hairs) with Ray Konior, MD - August 2018

500 FUE grafts (TBC) with Ray Konior, MD - 2020

What would be my next step? I paid for 1000 and get 500, is their a way to tell for sure?

Take some pictures and open them up in windows paint.  Count them by placing a coloured dot next to each one?

They appear quite spaced out. Who was your surgeon?

Dr Moore in St Louis, however the tech did the whole procedure. She said she'd been doing it for 8 years

Your next step? You celebrate that this clinic only used less than 1000 precious grafts.

Seriously: 1000 would be way to few for the area. And I agree it is probably less. Count the grafts and maybe you get some money back with a lawyer. If 1000 is in the contract there is a good chance to get some moeny back. Poor growth almost never gives you a chance for a refund.

BUT THIS ARE ALL SIDE TOPICS. The important topic. Read patient reports in here for several month and select a better clinic for your next surgery.

Good luck.
