  1. Since Spex launched his online book I have been receiving phone calls from many doctors thanking me and congratulating me on his presentation. I want to reiterate that I had absolutely nothing to do with it except for proof reading some of the technical sections which I did for free as a friend. The book contains videos from multiple doctors, not just myself, attesting to Spex's past and current contributions to the field of HT. I believe Spex went out of his way to include input from several doctors to demonstrate his credibility as an independent patient educator. An effort for which I appluad him and the other doctors who volunarily chose to support him in their own videos. I wish Spex continued success. Dr. Feller Feller Medical, PC

  3. This patient had lost the medial (middle) aspect of each eyebrow. Plan was to do 2 procedures to replace this lost hair. 120 FUE removed from back of the head, inspected and trimmed under microscope to insure only single hair FUs utilized, then implanted into eyebrows. Photos are before/after 18 months after one procedure. Second procedure to thicken brows performed earlier this week. I prefer to perform FUE on cases like this as a linear scar seems a bit overkill for such a small procedure. Dr. Feller
  4. Not all of our patients require megasessions. In fact, a little can go a long way on the right person. Take this patient who had an HT by another clinic. Most of the transplants he was given were minigrafts placed on the hairline. This left him with a "stalky" unnatural appearance due to all the two and three hair grafts growing on his hairline. This type of surgery is easy to perform, but the results are usually less than satisfying. To repair it we decided to pack 1,200 grafts between all the old transplants with follicular units. We considered doing FUE, but since he already had a strip surgery in the past, it was more cost effective to just do another strip. Here are his photos before and after 9 months: BEFORE: Just at the end of surgery:
  5. I've been in the HT field for sixteen years, and I still find my interest piqued by interesting things that just pop up during the day. I present one of them here: This patient with very white hair visited for a procedure. He had bald patches in his crown and on his hairline in the front left of his scalp. After I transplanted a few thousand grafts into the areas, he visited ten days later to have his staples removed, so as per usual I snapped pictures of the HT from different angles. When I uploaded them and looked at the photos that I took from the top I was stunned to see that it appeared that there was no stubby hair transplant hair visible. I knew it was there because I saw it with my own eyes only a half hour before. Then I looked at other photos I took at different angles and, low and behold, there were the hairs-in the thousands clearly visible. I felt that such a sharp contrast between visible and invisible transplanted hairs based on just a few inches of camera movement would be educational to the online viewers.
  6. Did this woman really benefit from LLLT? If so, why won't the doctor who presented it show the areas that were treated instead of covering over it with surounding hair? http://www.fellermedicaldata.com/Video/LLL...ctor1/part1.wmv
  7. This patient "RK" came to us 5 months ago and we performed a 3200 graft session on him via strip with Tricho closure. He visited the other day for pictures to be taken. He is growing VERY fast for only 5 months. He is not, nor has he ever been, on propecia or any other hairloss medication. Dr Feller
  8. Looking good Gasman, grow well.
  9. This French patient "Frenchguy" came to Feller Medical for a repair session. We dense packed his hairline with 1800 grafts to help bulk up and refine his hairline. Here are the patients results 18 months on.
  10. Hello, In reply to your email. I remember you and your OCD very well and have had several patients and friends in my life with the same disorder, it doesn’t put me off so don’t worry about it. Spex, on the other hand, is not a doctor and is not used to dealing with patients with OCD. Add to this the fact that he is a new father of twins, and you might well imagine your obsessiveness may have rattled him a bit. He’s a big boy though and can handle it in the end. I’ll answer your questions in order: 1.Just over 1,000 FUE 2.Yep. Just as we discussed before, during, and after your procedure several times 3.Below average donor area with good patches and weak patches of donor hair. Difficult FUE area, but do-able. 4.The disruption in the skin is more a function of the skin itself than the grafts. You are analyzing it way too closely if you are assessing the shading of the grafts. Let it go, and STOP touching the grafts. I know your doing this obsessively so STOP it, it can affect the grafts. 5.100% normal. All will go back to as it was. 6.The numbness is normal. There is no liquid floating about. You may be confusing some post op swelling with lose fluid, It isn’t, and if I haven’t told you already, STOP touching the recipient area! 7.The redness should be dissipating now. Especially since you have dark skin to begin with. Each person is different, so don’t stress too much on it. I doubt your girlfriend will notice. I saw your photos and your write up on here, RELAX!!! You look fine and you are fine. Put your fears into perspective and summarize our plan as we made it on the day of your surgery. I want to REMIND you that AS WE DISCUSSED you will be visiting me A FEW TIMES more in the future since you were NOT an easy FUE candidate. But don’t worry about your appearance you will look NORMAL when it grows out and not “daffy” as you put it!!! Our goal was to give you a “buzz cut” look with a more defined hairline, and that’s exactly what you see in the postop pictures and that’s exactly what you should see when it grows out. RELAX! Dr. Feller
  11. Much of the hair transplant industry has been cleaned up since the advent of forums and websites like this. However, there are still areas of HT that remain largely unaddressed. Another thread on: http://hair-restoration-info.com/eve/forum...61/m/1951080673 Referred to a UK clinic who consistently produce poor and/or disfiguring scarring within the donor area. While falceros' intention was to discuss the relative appearance of donor scar with respect to camera and head angulation, it struck me that a much more important point was being ignored, namely the proper "absolute" position of donor incisions. This is why I scanned and posted THE textbook definition as to how a proper donor incision should be planned and executed. I doubt any doctor will publicly contradict the text, and they shouldn't since it is one of the few things in medicine that is objectively and demonstrably correct. Allan, the topic starter in the other thread, had a procedure in the UK that clearly ignored the basics of "Hair Transplant 101" by harvesting a donor strip that was obviously too low and led to a needlessly greater chance of large scar formation. Was this just an isolated "once in a while" incident, or was this "less than optimal" approach to donor harvesting a more pervasive problem? I think it is not only a prevalent problem, but epidemic. By coinicidence I had a UK patient in my office only a few days before Allan posted his results from a UK hair transplant doctor. What I found in the donor area was appauling. It demonstrated an utter and complete lack of understanding of basic scalp physiology and an almost purposeful desire to disfigure. Most of the time, these awful results come from the "hit and run" HT docs who may perform one hair transplant per month. To them, the donor area is not a part of the body to be respected-and it shows in their results In the photos you can see an upper scar and a lower scar. The first UK doctor produced the lower scar. It is located BELOW the occipital bump and predictably looks worse than it otherwise might have. The second UK doctor went way high in the donor area (in an effor to avoid the first scar no doubt), but because this scar is located well above the occipital bump the size of the scar is much smaller. The problem with both scars is that both UK surgeons totally missed the very prime donor real estate. I was thankful for this because it made my job that much easier, but one must wonder why such amateur mistakes were made by HT docs who have not only been in practice for years, but CLAIM publicly to be "experts" and "leaders" in the field. Here are a couple of other goofy scar results produced by self proclaimed "experts" in the field of hair transplantation In the bottom photo the doctor had excised the donor strip well below the occipital bump, and that scar is smaller than one would normally expect for such an inappropriately low scar. We can only imagine how good his donor scar would have looked had it been excised on or above the occipital bump. In any surgery the outcome is never 100% guaranteed, but the odds can be slanted in favor of the surgeon and patient by simply understanding some basics and applying them every single day. Why this has not been done is beyond me. Thankfully, such results can be reported on the internet for the world to see. Feller Medical, PC Great Neck, NY 516-487-3797
  12. Bricks surgery could not have gone better. 30% singels 70% doubles/triples. Here are his preop and intraop photos: Preop:
  13. Hi everyone, hope all is well! I would like to introduce my long time associate, mentor, and friend Dr. William Lindsey of Reston, Virginia. Dr. Lindsey has teamed up with me in a joint practice located in Reston, Virginia which he will operate as the managing partner and sole surgeon. Dr. Lindsey is a doubly board certified surgeon in Facial Plastic Surgery and Otolaryngology and has been practicing folluclar unit transplantation for 10 years. Dr. Lindsey was the first doctor to perform FUE in Virginia as well as the first to perform dense pack megasessions on a regular basis. His specialty are dense packed hairlines, plug repair, and scar repair. Dr. Lindsey has been working in my office in Great Neck regularly for the past 8 years learning our techniques of patient evaluation, dense pack megasessions as well as FUE. Likewise, I have been working in his office for the past 8 years learning plastic surgery techniques that he's applied to hair transplant surgery. His specialties are dense packed hairlines, plug repair, and scar repair. Most importantly, Dr. Lindsey's staff of technicians were trained by me and my technicians and are all qualified experts in microscopic disection of strip grafts and FUE grafts. Most of you don't know Dr. Lindsey because he spends little time on the internet, but now that I have introduced him to the boards he will be showcasing his work here as well as posting and answering questions. We have accumulated photos and video of Dr. Lindsey's work over the years and will be presenting them here and on other boards. I think you will all find that he is a top notch surgeon and a pure professional through and through. Dr. Lindsey's website will be overhauled in the next few weeks to provide far more information, photos, and videos of his patients and his work. To make an appointment to see Dr. Lindsey please call 001-703-468-1329 Lindsey Medical Website - www.lindseymedical.com Dr. Feller
  14. Hello everyone, This patient had been to another clinic for a hair transplant to lower his naturally high hairline. Unfortunately, while he was told he would receive follicular units, he actually received obsolete mini and micrografts. The result was an unnatural "haze" of hair on the hairline. This patient does not take any hairloss medication. We 3,000 grafts into the hairline. Here are the results after 18 months: Click the link to see the video i took:Video of this patient Dr. Alan Feller
