    Default Real-time Growth after 3439 grafts - Steven Gabel MD FACS

    I am presenting this patient who had surgery on September 3, 2014, and will display her results every month on this thread to document the progression of growth in hair restoration surgery. This patient had 3439 grafts placed in the frontal hairline and temples to augment and bring down her hairline.

    She has graciously volunteered to return each month to my office for the next year so we will be able to present her photographs in real-time. I feel this is instructive for patients inquiring about the progression of hair restoration surgery and how they may look each month.

    Default 2 month update photos- Steven Gabel MD FACS Patient

    Here are the month 2 photos:

    At this point, all the transplanted grafts have shed, which is expected at this point. There is a faint redness where the grafts were placed in a high-density type fashion. The redness is also fading over time.

    Default Dr Steven Gabel Patient - 3 months after surgery - realtime growth

    Here are her 3 month results, which were just taken 3 days ago on December 22, 2014, as shown in the newspaper she is holding.

    At this point, her hair is now just starting to grow. It is still sparse, but slowing starting to fill in. Only a small % of the grafts have started growing at this point. This is certainly an exciting time for patients because it is proof that the grafts survived and the results are starting to show.

    Default Real Time Results – 4-month update – Dr Steven Gabel’s Patient

    We are now presenting the 4-month update from our patient who has graciously come in each month to document her progress. We have presented each month from the day of surgery through yesterday, January 5, 2015 (the front page of the Oregonian shows the article on the matchup between Oregon and Ohio State for the National Championship, and the lessons to share on legal weed – Oregon approved this in the last election).

    The patient is now 4-months out and the transplanted hairs are starting to sprout in a much more vigorous fashion. They are thin at this stage, and there are still many to erupt through the skin, but the results are starting to show.

    The transplanted hairs at this stage come out of the scalp rather thin and wavy, and over the next year or more, the hairs will thicken up as the hair shaft diameter increases. She will be back in one month for the month-5 photos.

    Default Real Time Results – 5-Month update – Dr Steven Gabel’s Patient

    Here are the 5-month update photos. This patient has been coming into the office each month to display her progress each month.

    As shown, the transplanted hairs are all erupting well. She still has a long way to go, but the results are definitely showing. The patient is certainly excited to see this as the transitional period is always the most difficult time since the results are not instantaneous.

    It is very interesting to see the progress this patient has made from before surgery, and each month following the procedure. She will be back at show her 6-month result.

    Default 6-Month Results

    My patient is now 6-months following 3439 grafts to the frontal hairline and front-temporal angles. She had severe recession and desired to fill in the areas.

    The hair is growing longer, filling in areas of alopecia very nicely and the density of the transplant is showing well. I plan to post video with the next month.

    Default 7-Month Real-Time Progress

    We are now at 7-months after 3439 follicular unit grafts were placed in the frontal hairline and fronto-temporal angles at the Gabel Center. Her hair is growing so well right now it is difficult to comb through it. In fact, when I was taking the photographs yesterday, she feels that the transplanted area is denser then the non-transplanted areas.

    As shown in the photographs, which were taken yesterday, April 25, 2015, (documented with the current Oregon newspaper), her hair is growing and the density is amazing. It is difficult to comb through that section of her hair. Also, note that the hair is wavy which is seen early in the growth period. This is due to the micro-scars that occur when a slit is made. Her hair will eventually become smoother as the micro-scars soften up.

    Overall this patient is absolutely thrilled with her progress as it is very difficult to see the scalp in the fronto-temporal angles, which is the reason she had the procedure. She is just anxious for it to grow long for styling purposes, which will take several more months.

    We will continue to document, in real-time, her monthly progress.

    Default Dr. Gabel Patient: 8 Month Real-Time Update

    We are now at 8-months after transplanting 3439 follicular unit grafts to the frontal hairline and the fronto-temporal angles at the Gabel Center. The photos show continued growth and thickening of the transplanted hairs. We see that the hairs have a tiny curl to them: this is due to the fact that the patient has a natural curl to her hair, but also there are tiny microscars that will soften up over the next several months.

    We will continue to document, in real-time, her monthly progress.

    Default 10-Months after hair transplant surgery - Realtime growth

    We are now 10-months following 3439 follicular unit grafts placed into the fronto-temporal recessions of this patient. The hairs are growing longer, and she is going to straighten her hair for the 1-year photos. Overall, she feels her hair is very thick in that area, and it has certainly satisfied her expectations from the procedure. These photos were taken 2 days ago. I also have a video that I will post with these photographs.

    She will return in 1-month for her 11 month photographs.

    Default 11 Month Update: Steven Gabel, MD, FACS Patient, Portland Seattle

    11 Month Update: Results in Real-Time with Dr. Steven Gabel Patient, 3439 Grafts Frontal Hairline, Portland, Oregon

    I have been presenting before and after photographs of this female patient each month to demonstrate the growth of a hair transplant from prior to surgery, immediate postop, her suture removal, and each month afterwards in real-time. Each set of photographs was posted within a couple days of taking the pictures to demonstrate, in real-time, the growth of a hair transplant. I feel this is very educational for people to see the real-time, monthly progress, of a hair transplant and what to expect after the procedure.

    This patient is now 11-months after her hair transplant of 3439 follicular unit grafts at our center. She has curly hair which shows with the transplanted grafts as they retain their natural hair structure. She has noticed that the hairs are starting to straighten out as we have expected. Most importantly, they are continuing to thicken, grow, and blend in very well to her natural hair adjacent to the transplanted hair. The goal of hair restoration surgery is to produce a natural result, which we have achieved here.

    This patient will return in one month to present her 1 year results. Again, I want to thank this patient for returning each month for these photographs. Because of her busy schedule, we meet at the office on Saturdays to take these photographs.
