Dr. Damkerng Pathomvanich of Thailand Asia has over 20 years of hair transplant experience and performs ultra refined follicular unit hair transplantation exclusively. He has the skill experience and staff to perform large densely packed hair transplant megasessions exceeding 5,000 grafts in patients with good donor hair density and scalp laxity with excellent results. He is very hands-on and likes to be involved in every step of the procedure from harvesting the strip to placing a percentage of the follicular units himself. His skill and artistry is demonstrated by his hairline and crown patterns he creates for his patients.
Using a single blade, Dr. Pathomvanich carefully harvests the donor strip with a technique for minimizing the transection of precious donor follicles that has recently been published in the professional journal “Hair Transplant Forum”. Dr. Pathomvanich closes the donor wound exclusively using the trichophytic closure technique with retention stitches plus running absorbable ones in order to minimize the appearance of the scar. He limits his FUE to 1,000 grafts per session using the FIT technique, with minimal transection.
Dr. Pathomvanich is a firm believer that natural hairline design is critical to producing world class results. He uses single hairs exclusively to feather and re-create a natural looking hairline and is a pioneer of the laser assisted hairline design technology. He invented a laser device to achieve symmetry of the hairline and has published in medical literature.
Dr. Pathomvanich customizes his hair transplants for each patient. All follicular units are carefully trimmed under microscopes and placed into tiny recipient incisions as small as 0.7 mm to maximize dense packing. Dr. Pathomvanich and his clinic use a combination of custom cut blades and needles small enough to make tiny incisions to allow for a perfect fit of the grafts into the incisions. Dr. Pathomvanich and his staff can dense pack up to 50 FU/cm2 safely into the balding area with superior growth yield using perpendicular (coronal/lateral) incisions also known as the lateral slit technique.
Dr. Pathomvanich has earned an excellent reputation on our discussion forum based on very positive patient reviews and feedback from leading physicians such as Dr. Jerry Wong who has visited his clinic in Thailand. Dr. Jerry Wong was very impressed by his highly evolved hair restoration techniques.
