45 Year Old W/3121 Grafts Shapiro Medical Group

Recommended Posts

1st Surgery with Dr. Ron Shapiro - May 2005 - 1818 grafts = 3836 hairs

 

2nd Surgery with Dr. Paul Shapiro - March of 2008

1314 grafts - 2661 hairs

 

Total Grafts 3121 grafts/6497 hairs

 

Patient was in his 40's with stable hairloss and responding well to long term use of Propecia-- Given these factors we could be more aggressive with his hairline and density.

 

Take Care,

Jason

Hi Tommy,

 

Good question: Even though the patient was in his 40's for the 1st session, he had just started on Propecia--- so Dr. Shapiro stayed a bit conservative on him, until he #1 saw the results of his 1st procedure and #2 saw the effects of long-term use of Propecia.

 

Of course, the patient himself waited a bit, but finally came in about 3 years later to finish up.

 

Today, if this patient came in we would still likely do 2000 grafts, but we would still hold back a bit to see if the meds work.

 

However, if this patient came in and had been on Propecia for a year or two, in his 40's, we would be as aggressive as 2500-3000 grafts if the patient wanted us to be in one session.

 

Take Care,

Jason

Looks very good and natural. His hairline fits him. I like how SMG hairlines are individually tailored that suits each patient.

 

In the before picture his hair is slightly damp as were my own pre op ones for my hairline. This clearly shows where hair is and is not. When taking the before pictures it is quite possible for existing dry hair to not to show up on the photo and therefore the after result looks far more convincing.

 

I like the idea of clips to a certain extent to show the before situation but these can pull hair together and away from their natural position in the proposed transplanted area, again making this area appear to be thinner than it really is. Also there are many before photos with the recipient area already shaved.

 

Do you have any immed post op pictures to show the placement of the grafts
