A 46 year old man needing additional hair transplants in Katy, Texas came to us recently. His donor area had been completely exhausted from prior hair transplant surgeries, and his class 6 crown hair loss still bothered him. He was interested in doing anything he could to improve his crown loss. Because the scalp donor was nearly exhausted, we could not use that area. However, he had copious amounts of body hair. Utilizing the FUE Follicular Unit Extraction technique we were able to relocate over to 500 hairs from his back into the crown, and we are all ecstatic about the results we have seen from this surgery.
Since November of 2010 he has come in from Katy three times to have small FUE procedures done. Unlike the usual hair transplant, this procedure is shorter and much less invasive, than our routine follicular unit hair transplant. The surgery time is just a few hours, and the recovery time usually less than two or three days. Because we are moving fewer grafts than in a strip follicular unit hair transplant, it takes more surgeries to get a large number of grafts. Because the healing time is so short, the procedures can be done closer together, every 2 or 3 weeks.
This patient was recovered and back to work as a computer programmer in just 24 hours. I saw him last week, and the results are truly impressive, slow steady positive change, and he can’t wait to do more.
