4,000 Graft Hair Transplant / Feller & Bloxham / Dr. Blake Bloxham (NY)

We have the privilege of working on a lot of patients from the U.K. And while it is tough for them to get back into the clinic for follow-up, they are usually great with sending in picture "updates" as their results mature. 


This U.K. patient with advanced hair loss (essentially a diffuse NW VI) came to our clinic for one of our "As Much As Possible" or "AMAP" FUT megasession procedures. We discussed his goals and decided to rebuild a frontal hairline (leaving his current parietal fringe/temporal recession for now) and fill as much thinning scalp behind the hairline as possible. 

I was able to extract nearly 4,000 grafts via the FUT technique, and used them to knock out a lot of his hair loss. 

8 month later he excitedly sent me the following "selfies" to show his progress and express how pleased he was with the transformation! And I was as well! 

Truly a great guy, and I'm very pleased to have helped him out. 

Each image he sent (3) is shared here untouched. He's going to have someone else take photos at 12 months, so I'll update with more of the "cardinal angles" (IE a top down) at that time. The full after images are also attached below so they can be expanded and reviewed.

2,000 Graft "Frontal Band" HT / Feller & Bloxham / Dr. Bloxham (NY)

I've discussed the importance of the "frontal band" procedure in a few videos before, but I wanted to share a case where I feel it really was the "right move" for a patient. 


This patient originally contacted me about putting "a few hundred" grafts via FUE into his hairline. I examined photos he attached and disagreed with the approach. While this may have been a viable option for an older guy with stable and minimal recession, doing these little "fill" procedures in younger guys with unstable frontal zones and future loss isn't usually the best move. 

So I advised him to instead consider building a solid foundation with a larger, dense pack, "frontal band" FUT procedure. He thought it over and decided to go with the plan. 

I designed a new hairline -- that will look as natural in his 60s and 70s as it will in his 30s -- and outlined the frontal band region behind it. I then densely filled the area with 2,000 grafts via the FUT technique. 

8 months later, the patient contacted me thrilled with the results! He was very pleased we went with the more strategic and "long term" plan, and sent in the following photographs. 

Please see the video (which contains more pictures, explanations, and an immediate post-op video) and comparison pictures below. I've also attached the 8 month shots sent in by the patient (in case anyone wants to look at it blown up). All "after" images are sent in by the patient and have been left completely unaltered.
