"Hasson & Wong Trichophytic Closure Results"


  

          


All,

Over the years innovations in this industry emerge that warrant investigation and review. Any clinic that wants to offer the best methods and care for their patients will consider these innovations and make the call as to whethor or not it is something that is truly benefitial. To Hasson & Wong most of these innovations have fallen short of their promises and have not offered true advantages for the patient. In some cases they were even counter productive. If we are going to change our methods or add to existing methods we must know that it benefits the patient and truly improves some aspect of the final result in some obviously measurable degree.


One such innovation that we reviewed was the trichophytic closure. After extensive consideration of the evidence provided it was obvious that this relatively minor adjustment to our existing closure method made sense. We hope you agree.


The following link highlights our first documented result thus far with more to come as we have more patients return for follow-up visits. The file is just under 7mb in size. Anything smaller would have jeopardized the quality of the video which for obvious reasons I simply could not do.

Joe, I posted on the other site with this same question. How many grafts were taken?


Also, was it Dr. Hasson or Dr. Wong?

I am excited about this advancement. Might be time to consider a refinement procedure.

I brought this up before but nobody seemed to be interested. This is the latest, I called this the stripless strip transplant. I think HDC, Jones and a couple others are doing this now. I don't understand why people are not excited about this.

http://www.hairsite4.com/dc/dcboard.php?az=show_topic&forum=12&topic_id=31958&mode=full

This from the Cypress clinic ? Copied from their site,

Trigrowthic Non-Scarring Closure
Trigrowthic Closure

The traditional disadvantage of STRIP harvesting technique is that it tends to leave a linear scar on the donor area. This scar in the hands of non experts can be as wide as 5-10mm, which confines the patients from using short hair styling options. In the hands of expert teams, this linear scar has a width of 1-3mm and could confine the patient from either shave his head or cut his hair with clipper number 1-3 in the donor area.

HDC Hair Clinic is a pioneer in developing new techniques. Research and development is continuous process so that new techniques can be offered to the public. One such research programme, has been ongoing during the second half of 2005 and the main objective has been how to close the donor area without leaving a visible linear scar. This effort has finally been successful. The new "Trigrowthic Closure” is now offered to all Strip patients, with amazing results. This involves a triple closure of the donor site after the removal of the epithelium on the lower edge. The results are very encouraging even in Super Mega Sessions.

The patient demonstrated below is a Norwood Class 6 and had a Strip of 3,800 Grafts on the 14th of July, 2005. His photos were taken four months later with very satisfactory growth for that period.

On this patient we have used a "Trigrowthic Closure" and below we demonstrate the left, back and right sides of his head, where exactly the Trigrowthic Closure was applied. Click on the photos to enlarge so that you can see that there is no visible scar.







These foundings may be the beginning of a new era in hair transplant surgery that will leave the patient with great results and no visible scars. More and more "Trigrowthic Closures" with non to minimal scarring results, will be presented soon from HDC Hair Clinic.

No matter how thin the scar, a strip is a strip. They will cut out a chunk of your flesh from the back of your head. It is barbaric. That it will leave thinner scars does not make it any less invasive. Period.

I like it, what's not to like? Another option for low cost strip free transplant. Joe, how much does Hasson and Wong charge per graft these days ?

RE: Hasson & Wong Trichophytic Closure Results

Jotronic - How about multiple procedures using this procedure?

I think I would need about 8000 grafts to achieve a full restoration.

A strip surgeon recently said he could do 2 megasessions of about 2500 grafts based on my scalp laxity and that would be it for my donar site.

He suggested putting all 2 sessions up front and relying on treatments to keep the mid and crown. I don`t want to use fin again preffer minoxidil for the long term.

I`m 36 about norwood 4 and haven`t done much investigation since 98 when I opted to stick to treatments only.

Scarring in the donar site is a big issue along with keeping donar hair available for the future, and scalp tightness.

Fue and bht seem a bit unaffordable as a stand alone procedure to me -a combination of treatments seem more practical.

I wouldn`t have considered a strip without this possibility - I`d love to see the area shaved to get a true idea of the result.

I feel I owe it to myself to dilligently access the downside of any procedure.

Thanks, Joe

Thanx for sharing the info Jotronic.
I think that a few score shaven donor area pix and your case will be sealed.
Judging that a strip takes only 1 day, that should not be a tall order.

Shaving the donor area is a better way of assesing the donor scar visibility.

Very intriguing method. Joe, do you have any one year post op photos available? (Preferably shaven) To my knowledge, founder Dr. Frechet has supposedly performed this technique for a few years now, although I have not witnessed any such results one year post op. Is there a link to such cases? Much appreciated.

In response to Reply # 11


          

This is not a new technique. Only recently has it been discussed or implemented by high profile Drs but, I had this exact procedure done about 5 or 6 years ago by Dr Unger.

Does it work? It can. Does it result in a better scar than a non tri closure? Sometimes yes and sometimes no. Can it create a worse scar? It most certainly can be worse, as good or better.

That said, the only thing the tri closure deos is allow hair to grow through the scar itself. It cant make the scar any thinner than it would normally be and it cannot return laxity to the scalp "like magic".

In fact, even the Dr who pioneered the technique claimed that in his trials, only the virgin scalps respoded to the closure. The repair patients and those with previous surgeries did not do as well or any better than the traditional closures.

In my case, it did absolutely nothing. I had too much tension on my suture line due to repeated surgeries and limited laxity. No hair grew through my scar and it required a much more aggressive approach.

It is a great option for strip Drs working on virgin scalps. Why not do something that could potentially make the scar less visible? Only problem is that if you go in for a second strip after using the tri closure, chances are your results will NOT be as successful and certainly not more so.

It's exciting but the guy in the video has thick donor density to begin with. That is not the best way to judge how well this new closure technique really works. You need to show how it looks on someone with thin donor density and a buzz cut.

Also important is to show what the scar looks like a few years from now, make sure it doesn't stretch.
