General Hair Transplant Questions and Information / Dr. Lindsey Montana and Utah consultations
Last post by Dr. Lindsey -
Its that time of year.  I'll be at Big Sky Montana this weekend, never skied there before.  If anyone wants to have a chat before I attempt Big Couloir on Monday, simply call my office 703 356 3260.

And I'll be at Park City doing the usual ski with old patients and meet a few new ones March 8-13.  Same deal...  And if you are one of my old patients who wants to ski with me and a few others at Snowbird, I'll buy you lunch and a beer.

General Hair Transplant Questions and Information / Hair greed and other advice from Dr. Lindsey Patient
Last post by Dr. Lindsey -
Ok guys, listen to Steven...first off he has a mop of hair.  Some courtesy of a few FUE cases by me, but mostly from his GENES!   Here he is 77 months after I first operated on him and he's signed up for a little tweak of the hairline and partline in a month or so.  He does however give excellent advice on hair loss and hair transplantation.  Even seasoned veterans would be wise to hear his 2 cents on the life long progressive nature of hairloss.  And that is despite meds and surgery.

Hair Transplant Results posted by Doctors / Younger guy hairline repair results Dr. Lindsey with Video at 1 year
Last post by Dr. Lindsey -
This younger fellow had a low yield strip case elsewhere.  We repaired him and packed the hairline.  He came in planning for more hair to the hairline fairly soon, but gosh...I don't see anyplace to put more hair, he's likely to lose significantly more hair due to his family genes, and he looks NORMAL.  So hopefully we stopped his hair greed for now and he won't do something with me or anyone else for quite a while.

Dr. Lindsey,

Truly an excellent result. Kudos!

I think you bring up a very good point when regard to hairlines started "too" low and what to do about it. I frequently see patients from other clinics where the hairline was started a good amount lower than I would have started it, but not low enough where it would be unethical to simply improve upon it as you did here. I find that it is most often better to try and improve the density and appearance of the current hairline opposed to removing grafts and re-starting it at a more appropriate level -- which I believe often leaves very prominent visible scarring that patients are not happy with.

What is your rule for "packing it out" versus doing some removal and trying to start it at a more appropriate level?

Regardless, the approach worked beautifully here and the patient looks excellent. A truly envious hairline.

Take a look at this guy's hairline.  First off he had a low yield strip case elsewhere that was a bit too low on his forehead...but once the hairline was put there, he and I just opted to pack it.  He looks fantastic and of course...has a bit of hair greed thinking that just a couple more placed here or there would finish him off....  It might finish off his bank account but there is no place to put any more hair on his hairline right now.  I told him to spend that money on another ski trip and roll back in in a few years.

Hair Transplant Results posted by Doctors / 2,500 Graft Hairline and "Corner Closure" Case | Dr. Bloxham | Feller & Bloxham
Last post by Dr. Bloxham -
One of the most common requests we receive from patients who visit for hairline/"frontal band" work is: "Doc, can we 'close in the corners?'" or "do the sides?" or "fix the temples?" And what patients mean by this: can temporal or "corner" work be done while also fixing the frontal hairline region? It is important to note that this is not likely the best approach for all patients. Closing off the corners of a hairline and doing side or temporal work is a more aggressive approach and definitely "boxes" a patient in to a more immature and aggressive frontal design. Patients with advanced hair loss, those with certain hair/skin types (very dark and coarse with light skin), and very young patients are probably not the best candidates for this approach. However, there are instances where it is appropriate and patients may benefit greatly from some "corner closure" along with the normal frontal hairline work. Furthermore, this approach is surgically complex to accomplish successfully, and should only be attempted by a team very practiced in working in these areas.

The patient today was a good candidate for this approach. He asked if it was appropriate and if we believed it could be done successfully, and I thought it made sense. We did a 2,500 graft FUT procedure aimed at restoring the frontal band, "corners," and part of the temporal triangles. The case went very well and the patient returned at 6 months to show us his results. Even at 6 months, his transformation is excellent and he proves that "corner closure" is appropriate for the right candidate and with the right team.

Here are a few "teaser" images; I highly encourage all viewers to watch the detailed video below.

Hair Transplant Results posted by Doctors / 4 year FUE results Dr. Lindsey
Last post by Dr. Lindsey -
Lots of you guys hear me preach about how FUE never works as well as strip.  It doesn't.  BUT, sometimes you are better suited to FUE....for example, you need 1/4 inch haircuts for your work.  OR you are a terrible scarrer.  There are a few others but those are the big 2 reasons that I'd accept FUE's lesser results than strip gives.

Now this doctor has AWESOME thick curly middle eastern donor hair.  Here he is at just about 4 years.  And like everyone else...he wants to know if he needs more hair.  The answer to that is not right now but maybe in the future.



So take a look at the video, do your research, and make sure you understand the pros and cons of the various options available to you...not just get sold a procedure that fits your budget by a salesperson.
