Dr Nakatsui, frontal scalp repair, 2309 grafts

Recommended Posts

This is a patient who came in for his procedure recently. His story is interesting in that he had received one prior hair transplant procedure from another clinic about two years ago. He believes he was told he had received approximately 2500 grafts. Luckily, he had a photo of his recipient area following his first procedure so we could ascertain if this was possibly the case . Based on this photo, I think it more likely he received 2500 follicles/hairs as opposed to 2500 grafts as the density does not seem high enough to  reconcile a 2500 graft count.

I do encounter patients who were told they had received X number of grafts but actually received X number of hairs/follicles. As a result, I would always advise patients when they are consulting with a surgeon they may not be entirely familiar with to find out the type and number of grafts they are receiving and the projected number of hairs this might come out to. This would at least give the patient some idea of what they are going to be receiving. On the other hand, if you have researched the surgeon and are familiar with his or her work, then of course this would not be necessary.

At this point, I only have photos of the immediate post-op from his first procedure and the post-op photos from his most recent procedure, as well as the results from his first procedure. I will add the results of his recent procedure in a year or so once the grafts have a chance to grow in.

Was this FUE or FUT? I'm also curious which technique the other clinic used for the previous procedure.
