View Full Version : What do you think so far? FUE Work

07-26-2011, 11:15 AM
I guess you could say I'm a NW2 (3-ish) but have a diffused pattern of a NW5A.

Since 2003, I've had three FUE procedures just on the front hairline and temples for a total of 2,996 FUE grafts by the same surgeon.

I'm not sure what to think, especially after viewing everyone else's results for 3,000 grafts (just on the hairline and temples). I'm trying to be as reasonable and objective as possible, but right now I'm not feeling too good about the results. I thought it would be more dramatic, and it's troubling me greatly.

I want to post pictures, but unfortunately it seems the domain name in the link to my hairloss photo blog, maintained on a hairloss website, gets filtered out. I put a lot of work into it. I have to figure out what to do in the meantime. Please pardon me while I'll try crudely link it as this in the meantime:

IMHO, there are three primary factors that affect the total visual result of a HT procedure regarding coverage. They are: 1) the FU per cm2 that was implanted throughout the surface area that was grafted. We can simply refer to this as the gain achieved in density per cm2. 2) The survival/yield result from the procedure. 3) The patients' own individual hair characteristics, primarily hair caliber and any added benefit from wave or curl.

When the surface area grafted is increased but the graft count remains the same, the less density gained. But really, out of all of the factors, it is one's hair caliber that is the single most critical factor in attaining the illusion of coverage.
