Picking my 3rd FUE surgeon


Recommended Posts

My first response from Freitas was that he's not able to do a surgery on me because of the density of my donor hair.  I find this strange because diep, hw, couto, konior all recommended 1500-2250 grafts for my surgery. Hw estimated I have upward of the high 2000s to 3000 grafts left. The pic I sent Freitas does have my head faded so it's hard to tell the density so I sent him some more with it less faded. For example here is a screenshot of my head when I had it grown out.

Don’t  worry, if H & w told you you still have 2000 to 3000 grafts, that will be.  At this point, I doubt that De Freitas likes to win easy, if he refuses the more complicated cases, considering the fact, that as already mentioned by someone, few real cases on HRN, but only those published by the clinic .

Ultimately you're going to have to go in for an in person evaluation, so they can accurately determine how many grafts you have remaining. Remember, this number will vary between surgeon to surgeon, as some are more conservative by nature, others more aggressive - some with higher capability, others with potentially less. 

Don't feel too hard up about that response from De Freitas - it was only from a photo, and if you explained your back story over email, as was mentioned by Egy, he might just not fancy the hassle.

Just saw this post from Freitas and it looks like I have more donor than this patient even though I have had a lot removed and was still rejected by Freitas 🙄

I think the difference is you’ve had a lot of grafts removed and this patient had a virgin scalp. Keep in mind, these are suggestions virtually. It may be different if the doctor saw you in person. 

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