    Default Dr. Lindsey 1 year out from 3000 up front on former hairpiece wearer

    This nice professional had his first case a year ago. He's grown out pretty nicely and just had a second case which takes us all the way through his crown. He's local so we'll get followup.

    These pictures show his nice progression. I have a pic of his toupe which he wore to his consultation that I'll post separately on this thread. I think we surpassed its cosmetic change and note the irritation of his scalp on the day of surgery... I'm sure, but can't prove, that hairpieces affect the success rate of HT....fortunately this guy just got rid of his piece and grew in nicely. Also the last pic is his donor area showing a good scar hidden by his fairly fine hairs that we excised for the second strip.

    He just came by for a quick check. At about 10 weeks out, he's shed the grafts and has a bit of shockloss around the scar, but there are a few hairs growing through the scarline. Still its not visible with a fairly short haircut and hair that doesn't "hang" down significantly at this length.

    I've asked him to come on and post and we'll get final pics next April.

    This was my case. I just thought I would comment because I thought that Dr. Lindsey did such a fantastic job. I was content with the Hairsystem/piece and initially hesitant about moving to a transplant. Dr. Lindsey and his staff (Wendy and crew) did a great job. One of the biggest differences that I notice is that I don't have the hassle of having to maintain the system every few weeks and coloration issues. It is worlds better to just wake up, shower and dry the hair off. I just had the second procedure in mid-April and am waiting for the growing stage to begin (crown, plus a little more up front) on that portion. The most difficult part of the decision was getting rid of the system.

    I had planned, before the surgery, to keep the system in place and then wait for the hair to grow in. However, after speaking to Dr. Lindsey I abandoned it about 10 days prior to the surgery and tried to calm the irritated skin. After looking at several options, because I wear a suit to work, the best solution was to wear a stylish cap. That worked best. For the second procedure, they worked on the crown with some additional up front (no need to cut the front hair to do this so no cap). It was interesting to note that everything grew from the first procedure except for part of a small area near the most irritated area where the system had previously been located (part front side); it grew, but was a bit thinner in that section.

    The second procedure added a few more singles to the frontal area in addition to the crown. I am very satisfied and would highly recommend Dr. Lindsey. He is very honest and does excellent work. I think the key for system wearers is to get rid of their system perhaps at least a month before the surgery and use Aquaphor on the irritated area and get rid of the system after that. Dr. Lindsey and staff get 5 stars from me.
