Dr. Lindsey 6 year FUE result on "friend of practice"

Post by drwlindsey »

Ok, I post lots of threads on how FUE is simply not as good as strip...BUT, its a useful technique particularly in guys who scar poorly, need a very short haircut, and even better...don't need a ton of grafts.

This fellow is a friend of the practice and had FUE about 6 years ago.  Now he has fine hairs and has a decent FUE result.  Had he had donor hair as thick as his beard hairs....we'd have hit a grand slam home run.   I suspect at some point we'll be doing another case to add in behind his transplant where he's thinned a bit...and of course we'll add some grafts to his hairline.  FUE simply doesn't grow as well as strip due to root avulsion stress which I've discussed in 50 videos or so.   But John is happy and probably more importantly, so is his girlfriend.
