Hair Transplant Results posted by Doctors / 20 months after 2500, fine hair, Dr. Lindsey
Last post by Dr. Lindsey -
In this short video we discuss a 40ish year old with fine hair, now 20 months out from surgery with a short haircut and virtually imperceptible scar.  It can be tricky with the combo of fine hairs, and short haircuts--which limits layering and styling.  I am not talking about a combover...but styling definitely adds to transplant results.  But due to contemporary hair styles and lots of military patients...we see this alot.   He looks very natural and that is the goal...an unremarkable hairline.

Hair Transplant Results posted by Doctors / 8 month frontal update young man, Dr. Lindsey
Last post by Dr. Lindsey -
In this short update, our patient has turned the corner and really starting to grow from his case last winter.   We've put up several videos of this guy, who runs a gym a few hours from our office.  


Interestingly we did have a bit of trouble with donor site irritation and finally figured out that he spent lots of time on weight benches...and I mean LOTS of time... and the sweat irriated his scarline.  Once we determined this was the cause, all it took was putting a clean towel down on the bench to rest his head on, to solve the problem.



He's since signed up for his second case and we'll surely have updates over the next 18months.  The only real question is if he's going to propose to his girlfriend or not.

Here's another fairly public figure who had a no or low yield strip case by a practice designing a case around low downtime, medium budget and financing options, and slick marketing, rather than doing what the patient needed...which was to pack that front third.



Here he is at 8 or 9 months postop looking good and at 15 months, when he's fully grown in, he ought to look great.

Hair Transplant Results posted by Doctors / 8 years out on black male repair case by Dr. Lindsey
Last post by Dr. Lindsey -
Some of you guys may recall this fellow's original post...way back in 2011.  Anyhow, out of the blue, he emailed in an update from his sofa, in a state several hundred miles away.  As Wendy and I discuss, I really wish he' have allowed us to show his face as that really shows how well his face has been framed.  However, he has a public job and we can't show it.

He really looks good, although I think his increased stress with a wife and kid, as well as a few years going by...suggest we may see him again for that middle third....

Hair Transplant Results posted by Doctors / Is FUE dying, review of ISHRS article by Dr. Lindsey
Last post by Dr. Lindsey -
In this short video we review a recent lead article in The Forum, the ISHRS society's publication for hair transplant doctors.  The society has been on a roll lately, trying to combat black market clinics, surgery being performed without a doctor, and FUE slaughterhouses. 

Essentially the society says what leading doctors have said for years....FUE has limitations, and YOU the consumer need to know the pros and cons of both strip and fue, so that you, not a sales person, can make the best decision for your head.

Hair Transplant Results posted by Doctors / Poking fun at some fake hair ads-- Dr. Lindsey
Last post by Dr. Lindsey -
In a recent hair journal for the ISHRS, Joe Tillman--a pretty well known doctor rep/patient educator, did a bunch of spoof ads trying to warn patients against making stupid hair transplant decisions.  Wendy and I discuss a couple of our favorites.



I have no relation to Mr. Tillman, have never met him, and other than maybe an email or 2 on a forum discussion years ago, I have again no relation to him.  However, I think he is spot on with these ads.  And I applaud his efforts to educate the consumer against foolish decision making when it comes to hair surgery.

Hair Transplant Results posted by Doctors / Why are we doing so many repair cases? Dr. Lindsey discusses trends.
Last post by Dr. Lindsey -
In this short video Wendy and I tell you how we've gone from doing mostly virgin head cases 10 years ago to doing virtually all repair cases now. Common stories from many of our repair patients are:

1. Slick ads and an even slicker consultant with no doctor meeting preop



2. New doctors to hair offering "deals" with their new robot/automated FUE systems



3. Price



Unfortunately not only is the donor area now somewhat...or more...depleted, but the patient now has lost all trust that the surgery will work as described, making everyone's job a little tougher.

Hair Transplant Results posted by Doctors / Dr. Lindsey Female hairline reduction surgery
Last post by Dr. Lindsey -
In this video we show you a younger girl with a very high hairline and discuss the options of putting hair in front of the current hairline vs doing essentially a reverse browlift, pulling the hairline toward the nose, rather than the brows up...to lower the hairline.

We're now doing these in the office in about an hour and TYPICALLY the scar is really minimal and concealed by hairs in front of the scarline itself.  However, more than half of these patients ultimately decide to add a few hairs anyway...partly due to chasing that "perfection is the enemy of good" line I always talk about, but partly to address the upper temple/sideburn hairs.
