BHR Clinic

Dr. Christian BISANGA

Age: 37

Technique: FUE

Medication: Minoxidil

Donor densities: 80-80 FUs/cm2

Hair Caliber: Fine

Total FU used:- 2405


* FU breakdown:-             

1s 399

2s 1461

3s 545

TOTAL: 2405


That means 2405 FU = 4956 Hairs. Average = 2,06 hairs/FU.


The goal of this surgery was to rebuild the frontal third of this patient, keeping the same hair line design that he still kept to a degree. The procedure was performed 4 months ago, but the patient is experiencing an early yield. Nevertheless we expect more evolution within the following months.

Excellent presentation, and very impressive for 4 months.

I do not provide medical advice, recommendations, all responses are my opinion.

Hello, why was the temporal area on the left side not extracted from? Also, what punch size was used and which system?

Hi HTHOPE, great question and good to see people are looking at donor extractions also now.

This patient had 2400 FU, and a good density of 80 FU per cm2, so even with a nicely spaced extraction pattern and well spread as the photos show, we did not need to go over the whole donor of circa 180cm2. We harvest from one side (I see many FUE results only and exclusively harvesting from the rear however),  and spread as needed to get the graft numbers and units needed. So, we start from temple and above ear and work round keeping in mind a good spread for the grafts.  To extend it to the other ear for the amount of grafts needed and with this patient's density would have meant spreading more, more injections and not needed in that we have not had to over harvest at all to obtain what was needed. So, this is not uncommon. 

As said over the years I have seen a lot of results from clinics with higher amounts and not spreading more than the occipital area, so very concentrated extractions, but that said we spread as needed but there is no need to go over all the donor from ear to ear for the sake of it if we can harvest the numbers safely without having to extend and as said is common also and we take into account the amount needed and the donor density to give.

Dr.B uses a motorised punch and 0.75 to 0.8mm for the most part unless afro hair type etc.

Hope helps.

I represent Dr. Bisanga.

Amazing early growth for this gentleman. He must be very impressed already

Framing his face much better too. Very natural hairline developing.
