Dr. Carlos Wesley is a board certified diplomat of the ABHRS and performs high quality follicular unit hair transplants with excellent results.

Why Dr. Wesley is recommended.

Dr. Carlos Wesley has been performing quality follicular unit hair transplantation exclusively for over 4 years at his clinic in New York and operates on only one patient per day.  Having trained under Dr. Walter Unger, a pioneer in modern hair transplantation, Dr. Wesley and his full time staff of 6 have the skill and ability to perform up to 2500 follicular unit grafts in a single session when appropriate for the patient.

Dr. Wesley is an avid believer in providing patients with what they need and not necessarily with what they want.  Dr. Wesley stresses the importance of establishing clear communication and realistic expectations for each patient.  Coupled with his state of the art technique, Dr. Wesley believes that a thorough analysis of the patient’s hair characteristics and an accurate understanding of their objectives promote healthy and realistic expectations and a satisfying end result for his patients.

Dr. Wesley stays away from “cookie cutter” hair transplants and customizes his procedure for each patient.  Using tiny, sterile, hypodermic needles as small 20 gauge (approximately .88mm), Dr. Wesley creates parallel (sagital) incisions to minimize trauma to pre-existing hairs and out-of-body time for the grafts.  Dr. Wesley uses single hairs exclusively to re-create the critical hairline to produce natural looking and undetectable results.

Dr. Wesley personally designs the entire recipient area and clearly communicates the placement pattern to the planting staff specifying where each type of graft should be placed.  All follicular units are dissected and trimmed under microscopes and then carefully placed into tiny recipient sites by his experienced staff.

Dr. Wesley uses a single blade to harvest the donor strip to maximize control and minimize follicular transection and damage.  Dr. Wesley typically uses the revolutionary trichophytic closure technique using a continuous single-layer suture with sterile, 3-0 nylon sutures with only a few exceptions.  He believes coupling this technique with minimal tension on the wound produces virtually undetectable scarring.  Dr. Wesley prefers a standard closure to the trichophytic closure on patients with white hair, poor scalp elasticity and on lighter haired female patients.  In instances of donor closure under higher tension, Dr. Wesley uses absorbable vicryl interrupted deep sutures in and around the areas of increased tension after undermining along both edges of the wound.  Dr. Wesley uses the undermining technique to reduce tension on the wound while the extra sutures help promote optimal healing and minimal scarring.

Dr. Wesley places grafts up to 35 FU/cm2 in order to maximize growth yield and provide patients with a totally natural looking result.  While higher densities typically sound impressive to patients, Dr. Wesley feels that the vast majority of patients don’t require more than 35 FU/cm2 to promote the appearance of fullness.  Additionally, Coalition member Dr. Limmer’s hair survival study revealed that this may be the maximum density that will yield the highest percentage of viable transplanted growth.  However, patients who require or want additional density in an area can achieve this by returning for a second procedure.

Dr. Wesley is a member of the following organizations

  • American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery   (ABHRS)
  • International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS)
  • American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS)
  • American Medical Association (AMA)
  • American Burn Association (ABA)

Hair Transplant Videos: Patient Results and Education

Hair Transplant Repair of Old "Hair Plugs" by Dr. Wesley

In this video, Dr. Carlos Wesley presents one of his hair transplant patients after undergoing a repair procedure. Tthis hair transplant repair patient had previously undergone three hair restoration procedures by other clinics in the NYC area. They resulted in an unsightly donor scar and an unnatural "pluggy" appearance of his hairline. Even an attempted repair by another practice in the NYC area did not effectively improve the patient's appearance. Results from his repair session with Dr. Wesley can be viewed in this video segment.

Hair Transplant Repair Case - 2683 Grafts with Dr. Wesley

In this hair transplant video, a 55-year-old gentleman who had previously undergone hair restoration surgery with a different surgeon about 8 years prior.

These videos capture the growth at both 8 months and 16 months after his session with Dr. Wesley.

Hair Restoration Procedure - 2200 Grafts - Dr. Wesley

Hair transplant patients are not required to shave their heads for a traditional strip harvest approach to hair restoration surgery. Instead, they are encouraged to wear their hair at a minimum of 3/4" in length. However, Dr. Wesley is able to achieve an effective camouflage of sutures in the donor area in patients with even shorter hair length. This patient received a total of 2200 follicular unit grafts via the follicular unit hair transplantation method via strip harvesting. Watch this video to view the camouflaged donor area only 2 weeks after surgery.

Fixing Old Hair Plugs in the Balding Crown (Vertex) - Dr. Wesley

In this video, this 45 year old male hair transplant repair patient had two procedures 20 years ago by another doctor.

The Importance of Minimal Color Contrast

Minimal color contrast between the hair and scalp can certainly enhance the results of hair restoration surgery. This 35-year-old gentleman had a minimal color contrast between his dark hair and darkly pigmented scalp. His session of over 2500 grafts provided marked fullness throughout the frontal half of his scalp as viewed 18 months later. Because the patient lived far from the office, the follow-up images volunteered by this patient were taken in the comfort of his own home.

This 34-year-old hair transplant patient had 1542 grafts transplanted using a 0.75mm FUE (follicular unit extraction) punch harvest. Not only was his hairline improved in a way that corrected his recessions, but he can also wear his hair at the length he desires...very short!

A Patient with Limited Donor Hair

A 35-year-old male hair transplant patient wanted to slow down his hair loss. However, he did not have an ideal donor area.

The patient returned to Dr. Wesley's office at 10 months. Early growth from his transplant can be seen and this patient's response to subcutaneous PRP injection is included in a larger investigation currently being conducted by Dr. Wesley's office.

Salt & Pepper: Dr. Carlos K. Wesley

This 55 year-old hair restoration patient received 1709 grafts to the frontal third of his scalp. He returned after 11 months after his hair transplant surgery to say "hello" to Dr. Wesley and his staff. In general, salt and pepper hair coloration enables greater coverage with a smaller number of grafts as compared with a different hair color that contrasts sharply with the color of a patient's scalp.

This 40-year-old received 2460 grafts to address his receding hairline. His session with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley (NYC) included a number of DFUs (double-follicular units) tucked away behind his new hairline to provide more coverage and an improved facial framing.

He returned with a renewed self confidence about 9 and a half months later to display his new hairstyle!

Carlos K. Wesley, M.D. (NYC): Focused Mid Scalp on Young Male

This 34-year-old doctor wanted to add density to his thinning mid scalp. While he was bothered by the thinning on top of his head, the crown region (in back) didn't bother his as much.

A 2579 FU session of FUT with Dr. Wesley focused on his mid scalp. By creating a feathered "arc" along the back border of the pattern of transplantation and leaving a portion of his crown untreated, young patients continue to have a natural appearance even when the thinning portion of their crown expands over time.

The patient returned 12 months later for follow-up images and video of his new hairstyle.

Carlos K. Wesley, M.D. (NYC) - 3000+ FUE Under a Magnified Lens

In the ongoing discussion pitting follicular unit extraction (FUE) versus follicular unit transplantation (FUT), one subtle and surprising point worth noting is that various investigations have demonstrated a slightly higher number of hairs per graft obtained during FUE harvests. 

This video shows a young patient in his 20's after 3000+ grafts were transplanted by Dr. Carlos Wesley (NYC) using a hand-held, motorized FUE punch. Magnified images of the treated recipient area reveal growth of a significant number of transplanted 3-haired grafts after having been stored in the patient's platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and ACell prior to implantation.
