Hair Transplant Surgeon: Dr. Carlos Wesley

Repairing a Pluggy Patient Combining FUT & FUE (2315 grafts)

Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 2315
Baldness Class: 3V
Hair Transplant Repair Work
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

In order to repair a poorly-executed transplant performed by another surgeon, this 61-year-old man underwent a combined follicular unit transplantation (FUT)  and follicular unit extraction (FUE) session with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley in which a total of 2315 grafts were placed.  

As with all of Dr. Wesley’s patients, he was NOT required to cut his hair for the procedure. As a result, this patient was able to return comfortably to work and social activities within approximately 7-10 days of his procedure.

The patient’s hair follicles were incubated in platelet rich plasma (PRP) throughout the duration of the procedure. This, combined with an ATP-containing storage solution has been shown to enhance survival of transplanted hairs.   

The patient returned one year after his procedure and images of the patient can be seen below.  This link illustrates the timing of hair growth after surgery.
