View Full Version : Non-Shaven Reversal of a Thinning Hairline(FUT 2266):Carlos K. Wesley, M.D. NYC & LA

A 42-year-old man wanted to refine his markedly-thinning hairline. He underwent a follicular unit transplantation (http://www.drcarloswesley.com/follicular-unit-transplanting/) (FUT (http://www.drcarloswesley.com/follicular-unit-transplanting/)) session in which a total of 2266 grafts were used in the design.

The patient returned one year after his procedure and images of the patient can be seen below. As with all of Dr. Wesley’s patients, he was NOT required to cut his hair for the procedure. As a result, this patient was able to return comfortably to work and social activities within approximately 10 days of his procedure.

It should have been pointed out that this patient was a revision surgery after previously having an FUT at another hair clinic. Therefore, his FUT procedure with us included not only an increase in recipient area density, but also a revision of his prior FUT scar. Importantly, I take out the prior FUT scar and reduce it rather than creating multiple scars in the donor area. I have included images (distant and close) of the patient's donor area a few months after his FUT procedure with me.
