View Full Version : Dr. Carlos K. Wesley (NYC) - Female Hair Transplantation (1623FU)

A 46-year-old woman sought more density in her thinning recessions within her hairline. In her 1623-micrograft session of follicular unit transplantation (FUT (http://drcarloswesley.com/follicular_unit_transplanting.html)) with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley (http://www.drcarloswesley.com/) in New York City, her left side received a slightly greater emphasis due to its slightly more significant thinning.

Even by the fifth (5th) month her early growth is apparent. This accelerated growth may be the result from the storage solution used at Dr. Wesley's facility. The combination of platelet right plasma (http://drcarloswesley.com/innovations.html) (PRP) and ACell (http://drcarloswesley.com/innovationsACell.html) as a hair follicle storage solution has often resulted in earlier growth for patients.

Patients have inquired as to why hair restoration surgery was used rather than PRP/ACell injections in this case. This patient was suffering from female pattern hair loss (FPHL) and she had a very healthy (dense and healthy caliber) donor area. Down the road, PRP/ACell injections may be an option if more miniaturized hairs become apparent and/or her donor reserve runs out. Until then, she'll enjoy her new hairline!
