    Default Repair Can Take Several Passes

    This is a probono repair case that wrapped up around 9:00PM last night. It may take four or five surgeries to get all of the hairs out.

    Basically after this young man returned from military service in Iraq, he went to another clinic to have more hair placed in the frontal area. He was stunned when the hair began to grow. The hairline and placement were wrong in nearly every way a transplanted hairline can be wrong. He attempted to have the transplanted hair lasered out without much success.

    I had another patient return for photos earlier that day who had 3,000 grafts placed a year ago. He is very gentle with his hair because he, like so many men, he perceives hair growth as fragile. The reality in most cases seems to be; native hair or transplanted hair... It's hard to kill.

    Anyway after surgery, he came over to my house and met my wife and daughter. We had homemade pizza and watched a little "Burn Notice". He told us his story related to sharing his unfortunate experience in another forum only to be attacked and told he was not telling the truth about what happened.

    What a travesty. Kudos to your clinic for helping this gentleman out!

    Was his original work done in the United States or overseas?

    His work was done in the US. Our repair patient is the nicest guy. He drove in from out of state for his last surgery and had some left over hairs from the previous doctor's surgery he wanted taken out.

    The point I wanted to make in my previous post relates to how non-fragile hair is, transplanted or native. It's really hard to deliberately kill hair. I remember when I was 16, I rebuilt the engine for my first car and stuck my hairy hand in caustic carburetor cleaner for a few minutes. Burned my hand pretty good but didn't kill the hair. Says something about the power of DHT though!!
