View Full Version : Carlos K. Wesley, M.D. (NYC): Focused Mid Scalp on Young Male

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 (http://www.drcarloswesley.com/follicular_unit_transplanting.html) with Dr. Wesley (http://www.drcarloswesley.com) 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.

It is also worth mentioning that during his hair transplant procedure this patient had injections of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and ACell (http://www.drcarloswesley.com/innovations.html) into both his mid scalp and the frontal third of his scalp.

While magnified images and hair mass measurements of the areas of his scalp not surgically treated revealed that there was very little change in hair mass from injections, the patient reported that his surgically-treated area began its post-op recovery and growth within a few weeks of the procedure (significantly earlier than the standard recovery time).
