    Excellent work Dr. Rahal! This guy looks great! Can you tell us how many months after the procedure the after photos were taken?

    Thanks!

    the crown was left alone for a future session. he was orginally scheduled for 4000 grafts (for the front and top), but we managed to harvest 5300 grafts from a high donor density.

    the procedure was done in Nov 2007 and those pictures were taken at 9 months post op. he is coming in next week for one year photos. i will update the photo album then with more photo angles.

    That's outstanding, especially for only 9 months post op.
    Thanks for the reply Dr. Rahal.

    Yes that is very impressive for only 9 months out. From what I read it can take up to 14 or 15 months to see the entire result. Is this correct?

    It's nice to see that doctors are taking time to answer questions for us. Thanks you Dr. Rahal.

    Dr. Rahal -- thanks for sharing these with us. I was curious, do you have any sense as to what his graft survival rate was in this patient? Also, was this a FUE surgery, or strip method? And lastly, do you have any sense as to how many grafts are available to be transplanted on this patient? 5300 grafts is definitely a megasession, and, if the crown was left alone for a future session, I was just curious, how many more grafts can be harvested? I'm almost 10 months post-op from a 1600 grafts procedure, so these types of questions always pop in my head. :-)

    This guy looks incredible and must be smiling all day long!

    this was achieved with strip surgery not fue.

    exact survival %age is difficult to say without actual count. i will guess it is over 95-99% range based on how it looks in person.

    his donor density is very high and i am comfortable to say we can get at least another 5000-6000 grafts from his donor in future surgeries.

    Impressed is an understatement, that is some beautiful work, it's inspiring to know that results like this from a hair transplant are possible. Look forward to seeing the one year photos when the guy returns next week. thanks for sharing those pics.
