My FUE scars repair - 600 FUE/BHT - Dr Mwamba, Brussels

Recommended Posts

Recipient is amazing, who have your doctors been, and do you have any pictures showing the extent of your loss before intervention?

I will make a blog or full report of all my surgeries once my journey is concluded next year

If I understand correctly, you purposely over-harvested your scalp donor because those hairs are better suited for scalp recipient areas, and then you filled in your depleted donor with body hair because the difference is less noticeable there, especially as you have your hair cut short?

I would love if you can share more details on your past operations.

This is phenomenal. What did you look like to start? Would love a before and after. This right here is the dream. Money well spent for a slam dunk result like this. Kudos to you for getting what you want.

Thanks buddy

I will do a full report all of my surgeries with pictures and well documents reviews of all the doctors I have been too

It will take a long time but I think it can help people to see what can be achieved

Thanks again

My donor before Mwamba's repair:

For those interested Dr Mwamba has opened up a second clinic in Atlanta where he performs surgeries himself for just 5 USD per graft for FUE and 6 USD for BHT.

Thank you guys 

Here are the pics from the final pass today. I can only thank Dr Mwamba and his team for having done 3 days of surgery at just 300 grafts per day to ensure the grafts were safely removed from body hair. No rotation on the punch (only oscillation). If my result is 75% as good as my first pass I will be very happy indeed.

I took the chance to add 60 grafts to my left temple. Here are the pics:

On a side note I want to say THANK YOU to the clinic again for giving me accommodation for 10 nights so I could sleep on one side and wait for recovery to to the other side.

No clinic has ever gone that far for me before.

Hope to have some results in 4-5 months

Dr Mwamba, not only answers to posts in great detail, but he seems to know what he is doing.  He uses a variety of punches and it is good for people to ask him what kind and he will answer.

Your donor is coming out really well and natural looking.  I like the nice density you got up top as well.  It looks natural and hip.

Hi, Can I ask you Why didn't you choose SMP to fill in some density in donor area?

I will do SMP as well but mainly because I want to extract 750-1.000 more from the donor and it was impossible with the current state

When you come to extract the 750-1000 extra later on from the donor, how will the doc know which are native scalp grafts, and which are BHT - or are you just replenishing specific zones at the moment, so they will be able to extract from an area knowing it hasn't be touched with BHT? 

Also, do you take any preventative medication?

900 grafts over 3 days, so only 300 a day? That's unheard of for BHT, I can't understand why so much time would be required?

What was the cost per graft if you don't mind?

BHT are single grafts.

If I ever extract again it will be only doubles. I am pretty sure under magnification it will be no problem

Yes, I am on Topical Dutasteride for 9 months. I have zero hair loss and no sides for the first time in my life. Did lab work and scalp DHT was significantly reduced while leaving serum DHT untouched. Topical Finasteride gave me worse sides than oral fin.

It was 1.050 in the end

550 grafts day 1

250 and 300 on day 2 and 3

I am sure the doctor would have been able to make much more but he punched every one of them with great care, uses ATP and a custom solution to ensure the same survival rate as regular FUE which not many doctors do. 

He also implanted on an unshaven head and my BHT was very sparse, not the best conditions.
