Detail of Hairline:

Patient ACQ was interested in a very dense dramatic look that was accomplished in three sessions of 2,461; 2,054; and 1,451 follicular unit grafts. Note the position and shape of the hairline and the appearance after three sessions.

Top View of Hair Restoration:

In long-standing baldness, with the follicles gone, the scalp’s rich blood supply begins to diminish. Sun damage also damages the scalp’s connective tissue and alters the blood supply. Because of this, we prefer to transplant large, but not excessive numbers of grafts in the first session, in order to maximize growth. Once the first transplant is performed, the rich blood supply returns to the scalp and additional grafts may be supported.

Now if the great Dr. Gho could begin to show some results like this he would be well on his way to convincing all the doubters. Thank you Dr. Bernstein for displaying the artistry that all transplant surgeons need to master.

Great job doc. Interesting that you mentioned the concern for yield when transplanting to a scalp that has been bald for a long time. I wonder if Acell is improving the yield in such scenarios? Similarly do you think it could have a role in improving FUE yield.

Thanks for your time.
