In this man, we did a frontal U case, which I've described in multiple other videos, to address his hairline and the area behind his tuft. The only trouble is that as that tuft goes....we may need to come back and put hair in it. AND I think he's lost a little of his tuft...and we may have to deal with that later on.
In any case, he looks great. He's very happy, and despite 3 other doctors putting scars on his donor region..in semi-non-parallel lines (who knows why?), and with me excising one of those scars at his case, he can still wear a normal haircut.
Some, including my nurse, would question why I show his donor region with scars...including 2 scars from other doctors which aren't good. The answer is 2 fold. First, MOST people, even with crappy scars, can look normal with a typical 2016 haircut length. And second, even though my scar is the best of his 3 scars..its still a poor scar and a poor scar from me. As I've discussed for years now, I get MOSTLY really good scars, but I get 4 of these each and every year. I tell every patient this, so here is an example. The informed potential patient makes the best decisions.

This medical professional stopped by Friday, 6 months out from his first case. He's growing nicely, has a PERFECT trichophytic closure, and will likely get a second case this autumn.

This fellow stopped in unexpectedly today, 8 months and a day out from his crown. Shown are his preop, 5 month video, and 8 month video results.
Male | Caucasion | Class: 3V | in 1 Session | FUT/Strip | Transplant
This nice fellow has been with us for a few years. He had very little hair to start with, and we did 2 strips to address the front, and then an MFUE 7 months ago to finish the crown.
Male | Caucasion | Class: 5 | in 3 Sessions | FUT/Strip | Transplant
This 30's year old professional had 3000 grafts + PRFM a year ago. He flew through DC and I took a video at 6 months.Its been about 12 months now, and we're doing a second case. Hopefully he'll chime in to this post and hopefully he'll come through DC next Christmas for final pics.
Male | Caucasion | Class: 4 | 3000 Grafts FUE | Transplant
This fellow stopped by a day or 2 ago and is already growing nicely. He'd gotten 1800 to the crown in July...mainly so that he could swim routinely and not have to worry about combing his nice frontal hair back over the bald spot.

This mid 50s cosmetic surgeon had 2800 up front 11 months ago and finished off his crown yesterday.
Male | Caucasion | Class: 3 | 3000 Grafts in 1 Session | FUT/Strip | Transplant
This Asian lady tends to form poor scars. She has 2 hairless trauma scars which we addressed this week with MFUE.
Female | Non-Caucasion | in 1 Session | FUE | Transplant
This younger patient had crown work in January and stopped by yesterday while in town. He looks excellent...which can be a challenge is crowns and guys with shorter hairstyles and limited layering. His wirey hair and good color match helps significantly. Plus his scar turned out fine, allowing him to keep that short hair in the back.
Male | Caucasion | Class: 3V | FUT/Strip | Transplant
This mid-50s fellow came in in early 2014 and signed up for a strip for the summer. 2 days preop...he called and said he saw some awful strip scar at the pentagon and he switched to FUE.He had about 1700 grafts over 2 days uneventfully, then called this summer for another case.
Male | Caucasion | Class: 2 | 958 Grafts in 1 Session | FUE | Transplant
Readers may recall this fellow pulled my wisdom teeth when I was a kid, in his first year in practice. We did his first case 2 years ago and a followup last October and I stopped by his office last week when I was in his/my hometown.
Male | Caucasion | Class: 4 | in 2 Sessions | FUT/Strip | Transplant
This nice lady was referred by a local dermatologist. She has scarring alopecia which appears to be stable now and "burned out"...hopefully allowing a transplant to cover her balding scalp.
