Hair Transplant Surgeon: Alan Feller, D.O

Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 2683
Baldness Class: 2
Hair Transplant Repair Work
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

This patient had multiple old style plug and mini graft hair transplant surgeries years ago when he had much more of his own hair. As his native hair began to fall away, the plugs and minigrafts become more and more pronounced-a common problem.


We undertook to repair this work by implanting along the hairline to blend out the old minigrafts and then focus in the front center area to fill in the where his native hair used to be.

Because of the multiple old surgeries it looked like he had a "road map" of tangled scars in the donor area thus limiting the harvest. We were, however, successful in obtaining 2,683 grafts.

Visiting with us almost 2 years later he is concerned that the procedure was not that effective. He believes there was growth, but not that much. I thought the results were excellent, paticularly for a repair patient, but of course I am biased, so I offered to put up his pics for the public to see and to offer their opinions.

As of our last conversation we discussed implanting about 1500 grafts into the front and top region again to thicken them up. 1,500 grafts is all he has left that can be taken via strip.  I could probably get another 1500 or more grafts via FUE if he were so inclined.
