I am speechless! Great...Best result I think I have seen on an NW7 with these less than favorable hair chracteristics!

You mention that his donor was 'POOR', yet you still managed to extract over 7,800 grafts from his scalp.

Can you speak to how you managed that? Is it just carefully planned homogenous depletion?

I’m always impressed when surgeons can get these results out of poor candidates.

I got literally to the limits of the donor area: to the limit next to bald area and neck, to the limit of the remaining density in the donor.
The objective was to intentionally lower the density of the donor area beyond the 'recommended' limit in order to get a uniformity/homogeneity in the areas i've covered.

btw
Did you comb through video?

Wonderful!!! What percentage of the donor area did you extract? I am assuming it was well over than 40%, no? Correct me if I am wrong, but I think that is advantage of FUE in that one can 'over-harvest', yet if homogenized it looks 'normal' and scarring is prevalent, a good SMP artist can usually conceal well.  

Yes, I saw the comb through video and it is jaw droppingly AWESOME. Looks like he never had an alopecia. Also, donor looks homogenized and scarring is not really noticeable.

How do get to know more about you such as years in the business, who trained you, how to have a consultation, etc?

@Dr Pittella I take it from the break down no scalp hair was harvested? Do you know how many of the chest grafts didn’t survive? Also how far apart were each of the three surgeries carried out? It’s an incredible result!
