Hair Transplant Results posted by Doctors / Female hairline lowering, this time with hair transplant by Dr. Lindsey
Last post by Dr. Lindsey -
I've posted a bunch of videos discussing the 2 options to lower female hairlines.  Well 3 actually...doing nothing is the easiest and cheapest option and frankly, in the US...MOST caucasion women have naturally higher hairlines.   Having now done 4000 facelifts...that is a fact of our population.



So the 2 options are...1. Reverse browlift which immediately lowers the hairline about an inch or so.  Its pretty quick, taking us about 45 minutes in the office with oral sedation.  And usually, the scar is minimal.

2.  Hair transplantation which takes a year to grow in and can be designed to fit the patient's goals of a hairline.



And frankly half of the #1 patients we see....end up doing a small hair transplant a year or 2 later...women have hair greed too!   We have another patient like this next week who did several videos on reverse browlift for me.



Anyhow, here is a hair restoration and at a year...I thought she looked a little thin in 2 or 3 areas so we did a little touchup and we were glad we did.  With that very fair skin and very dark hair...no matter how tightly the hair is placed...its just not as much as is needed due to the color mismatch.

This is a 1 year update on our young lady who had a right eyebrow scar that we repaired with eyebrow hair transplant last spring.  She does a short interview and we discuss the difference between eyebrow and scalp hair...so that patients understand the limitation of eyebrow transplants.



For some reason, we've gotten maybe 12  calls about eyebrow work since the covid 19 crisis started...more than we get in a year normally, so here's some info to consider as you do your research.

Hair Transplant Results posted by Doctors / 8 year female result and ski challenge update Dr. Lindsey
Last post by Dr. Lindsey -
In this short video I show our patient from 8 years ago, previously posted a few years back after another ski trip.  She lives in Utah and I did a frontal case on her, and subsequently her aunt (also posted).  She was the only taker in the ski challenge of 2020....possibly due to coronavirus shutting down snowbird the day we had the contest.  Anyhow, she has an unremarkable hairline at 8 years.  THAT is what we strive for.  Unremarkable.  It calls no attention to itself and nobody would ever guess she had anything done.

Hair Transplant Results posted by Doctors / Dr. Lindsey 3000 graft frontal result video
Last post by Dr. Lindsey -
This fellow popped in just before the covid shutdown.  He has grown in fantastic and now that his sun bleached hair is darker...I agree with him that we probably ought to think about lowering his hairline a bit.  But watch the video...when he is in the summer...that wispy tuft is hard to see.

Hair Transplant Results posted by Doctors / 5 month update on 1000 FUE's in african american frontal hairline by Dr. Lindsey
Last post by Dr. Lindsey -
Here's a 5 month update...probaby half growing..on a 1000 graft FUE case.   Those curly hairs, and virtually no skin/hair color mismatch already make him look awesome...to the point where our patient is shaving a small partline in.   When someone looks this good this early...its really tough to say if they are fast growers, or we put too many hairs in (never heard of that though), or we just got lucky.



The video is: 





We'll probably get an in person interview this fall, sooner if we can start getting back to pre-covid activities.

Hair Transplant Results posted by Doctors / 1000 FUE hairline by Dr. Lindsey 1 year
Last post by Dr. Lindsey -
Here's virtually a 365 day result of 1000 FUEs to address an asymetric hairline in a 30ish year old asian male, with preop, early followup, and 12 months shots and close up views of the hairline and donor area.



Thankfully he had thicker, more resilient, hair allowing easy extraction with minimal root trauma. 



The video is:





We have a virtual twin of this fellow at 6 months, also growing well, and expect a video of him this fall.

General Hair Transplant Questions and Information / Don't get a haircut before your surgery Dr. Lindsey
Last post by Dr. Lindsey -
In this brief video we show how....with proper planning and by growing surrounding hair longer....that a class 4 or 5 patient can get 3000 grafts and at a week, conceal all evidence of the procedure.


Now I realize some guys just can't grow the surrounding hair and comb it over, and some (like me) have really wirey hair that simply WON'T comb over...but certainly 40% of our bigger case patients can pull this off.  Trouble is, that despite us telling them this at the preop meeting, about half of guys get a nice haircut to "help me out"...then they can't conceal the case.



Our philosophy is always come with as long of hair as you can...it gives us and you the most options.  You can cut hair in 10 minutes when you want, but it takes a month to grow a half inch.

Hair Transplant Results posted by Doctors / Hair transplant repair at 6 years, Dr. Lindsey with interview
Last post by Dr. Lindsey -
One of our favorite repair patients stopped by for an unrelated issue recently.  He did a short interview, now 6 years out from us repairing 2 unsuccessful strip cases by a fellow who just dabbles in hair. 

I've preached for years that while hair looks like easy surgery...unless you do a lot of them....you simply don't have the little extra attention to detail in multiple areas...cutting, designing, placing etc...that separates consistent hair restoration from most of what is available out there.  I know...as I've admitted many times...I USED to dabble in hair in the 90s....and only after I made the decision to go big or go home...did I get good.  Lots of doctors never make that decision....and with the rent a techs and machines...its only getting worse for the uneducated consumer.


Our video showing the flipping of virgin heads and repair cases...which last year was something like 27 virgin heads and 113 repair cases...illustrates that point.



So take a look at our guy...I don't particularly care for the curve into the temples that the first doc did...but its what we had to work with and looks reasonably unremarkable.   I point it out in the video which is:
