Dr. Hasson /4,699 Grafts/ FUE/ 1 Session/ 11 months post-op

Recommended Posts

This Vancouver-area patient in his early 40’s approached Hasson & Wong in the hopes of restoring density to his frontal zone, mid-scalp and crown. He first began to lose his hair around the age of 25 characterized by recession in the temples and thinning of the crown. Without intervention, Dr. Hasson estimated his likely progression to be a stage 6-7. Upon review of this patient’s case, Dr. Hasson determined that he was a good candidate for a large-scale FUE procedure to address the areas of concern. He also recommended that the patient use Finasteride in order to minimize further hair loss and improve the mid-scalp. During the course of a two-day FUE procedure, Dr. Hasson and his team successfully harvested 4699 grafts that were transplanted into his hairline/frontal zone and crown. Of these grafts, 300 were singles, 2485 were doubles and 1914 were 3-4 hair grafts.These photos were taken approximately 11 months post-op.

Unbelievably refined work. As usual. Such a perfect, natural looking frame for his face.

I feel like we don't usually see cases from Dr. Hasson highlighting crown work over hairline work, so this is a pleasant surprise. Were all grafts done in one sitting? What is the patient's future FUE donor capacity given that Dr. Hasson estimated a high level of possible hair loss in the future?

Looking good and what I really like is that donor, it seems like no grafts were taken from there at all... This extraction was beautifully done!!!

I am missing some more clear photos of the CROWN. Could we see more focalized crown photos?

Also, could we get the data of how many grafts were used on the crown itselft?

Thanks for the comments Steeeve, Mycroft and OliverAtom!

Mycroft: Day 1 was devoted to the hairline where 2537 grafts were employed. Day 2 consisted of all the crown work using 2162 grafts. This patient has above average donor area density and Dr. Hasson estimates another 7,000 grafts available via FUE.

OliverAtom: Here’s another shot of the crown.

The goal here is to greatly improve the appearance of the crown while also striking a good balance with the mid scalp/front. To responsibly manage the donor reserves we don’t want to commit too many grafts to the crown but just enough to create the desired cosmetic impact while still maintaining a fairly seamless transition into the mid-scalp.

Stayed tuned for some post-op shots of the donor area.

This is the complete opposite of Dr Bloxham’s philosophy lol.

Yea saying you can do 11k - 12k grafts fue from someones donor is hard to believe. In theory you can take even more out but will it look good and not depleted ? Find it hard to believe.

I know some people have really good donor that you can keep digging into and it will hold up but I think that amount is kinda pushing it. I could be wrong I’m no doctor.

Here are a few photos 1 day post-op. When trying to determine how skilled a clinic is at extracting grafts, look for the smallest possible punch size (while still preserving graft integrity) and an even distribution of extraction sites. (Of course don’t neglect the recipient site regarding growth rates, angle direction control of transplanted hair, hairline design, densities among other factors). Or just look at the quality and consistency of the results over many years😊. Also keep in mind the harvest is important in preserving the donor hair for future considerations. If the harvest is not properly executed, collateral damage to the surrounding follicles can occur and therefore diminish the donor area reserves. An improper harvest can also prevent the purpose of being able to wear the hair short without any noticeable defects.  This patient’s remaining donor reserves have been carefully preserved. Notice the uniform spacing of the extraction sites, how small they are and how quickly they start to heal.

Considering that the overall FUE capacity is estimated at >10k, what do you suppose would be the lifetime donor capacity had this patient first opted for FUT and then underwent FUE for any subsequent procedures?

That's an incredible donor capacity for FUE. The patient is extremely fortunate to have so much in reserve on top of having an existing result like this.

Thanks for the comments guys.

yesplease,

Dr. Hasson estimates an additional 2,000 grafts may have been available with an initial FUT depending on scalp laxity.

It’s crazy how H&W have transformed into one of the industry’s elite FUE clinics. I’m really glad to see this transition, as it’s good to have surgeons that do both.
