Carlos K. Wesley, MD explains the rationale behind transplanting follicles into future areas of hair loss. He weighs the benefit of this approach against the potential risk of temporary "shock loss"
Patient transformations throughout the year of 2018 in our office. Hair restoration procedures such as FUE, FUT, PRP and other topical medications helped men and women develop a healthier head of hair.
A 16-year-old boy was referred to our practice by the Little Baby Face Foundation due to marked cranial scarring that he suffered from corrective surgeries years prior. Dr. Wesley and his staff performed a pro bono surgical scar correction using follicular unit transplantation.

Using a 0.8mm follicular unit extraction (FUE) punch, Dr. Wesley was able to harvest 2331 in a single session. The patient can be seen before, during, and after his session. Even one week after his FUE procedure, this patient felt comfortable returning to work.

Patients who desire follicular unit extraction (FUE) procedures due to the benefit of being able to wear their hair at a very short length do not always have to shave the hair in their recipient area.

One of our New Year's Resolutions is to include a bit more video footage within our before/after presentations. We'll kick off 2016 by presenting this female patient of Carlos K. Wesley, M.D. who underwent a follicular unit transplantation (FUT) with our team.

In the ongoing discussion pitting follicular unit extraction (FUE) versus follicular unit transplantation (FUT), one subtle and surprising point worth noting is that various investigations have demonstrated a slightly higher number of hairs per graft obtained during FUE harvests.
This video shows a young patient in his 20's after 3000+ grafts were transplanted by Dr. Carlos Wesley (NYC) using a hand-held, motorized FUE punch. Magnified images of the treated recipient area reveal growth of a significant number of transplanted 3-haired grafts after having been stored in the patient's platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and ACell prior to implantation.

A 42-year-old male wanted to advance his receding hairline. The most important thing to him was a natural appearance after the procedure. In the accompanying video, he can be seen before and 17 months after his follicular unit transplantation (FUT) procedure with Dr. Wesley (NYC)

A 25-year-old male wanted to slightly advance and add fullness to his hairline and frontal scalp without compromising the pre-existing hair in that area. A 2036 FU session with Carlos K. Wesley, M.D. (NYC) can be seen before, during, and 12-months later. The accompanying video also illustrates the overhead view of the young man's scalp one year after his platelet-rich plasma (PRP) - enriched follicular unit transplantation (FUT) session with Dr. Wesley.

This 34-year-old doctor wanted to add density to his thinning mid scalp. While he was bothered by the thinning on top of his head, the crown region (in back) didn't bother his as much.
A 2579 FU session of FUT with Dr. Wesley focused on his mid scalp. By creating a feathered "arc" along the back border of the pattern of transplantation and leaving a portion of his crown untreated, young patients continue to have a natural appearance even when the thinning portion of their crown expands over time.
The patient returned 12 months later for follow-up images and video of his new hairstyle.

This 40-year-old received 2460 grafts to address his receding hairline. His
session with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley (NYC) included a number of DFUs
(double-follicular units) tucked away behind his new hairline to provide more
coverage and an improved facial framing.
He returned with a renewed self confidence about 9 and a half months later to display his new hairstyle!
