This patient's repair procedure had been discussed on the forums in Jan 2006. He is a Caucasian from USA and has had concievably every type of hair restoration procedures performed. Scalp reductions, flaps, plugs, strips, fue, body hair transplant etc., before coming to our clinic. He visited us in Jan 2006 for 4000+ bht procedure. In Aug 2006, the patient feels he has had good growth in the transplanted body hair grafts. His case will be discussed in detail soon by Dr. A.
For the present here's a comparative picture of the front top of the patient's scalp. This patient too had fine body hair. But there is more body hair -skin color contrast. He has not cut his hair since Jan 2006, except for trimming the hair that grew too long.
Best regards, Dr. Sangay C.B. I have trained and work at Dr. A's clinic as a hair restoration surgeon. However, my opinions and advise need not be shared by Dr. A. www.fusehair.com firstname.lastname@example.org

I wish people would see bht as a adjunct to head hair transplants and any increased density is a bonus. If people as of date are not seeing this they are just setting themselves up for dissapointment no matter what doc they chose. You want meggasession proof? Go meet patients that had it done. Enough of the over marketing already.
If we had 4000 scalp grafts the situation, of course, would be different.
However, this is a very landmark case. Fine calibre body hair have been used. There are other peculiarities of this case too. I will discuss this case in the coming days. But a brief synopsis. 1. FUSE/fue grafts were extracted from the hairline. People often want to see the sort of scarring such extractions may (or may not) give.
2. Fine calibre body hair was used in the hairline to feather a hairline made of a flap transfer procedure. Again there are many flap recipients who ask me how to go about their repair procedure. I think this case will help them.
3. The flap was debulked by removing the 2 and 3 hair FUs in the flap hairline.
4. Certain very important aspects of body donor healing that may help advance a further understanding of the whole concept.
5. Fine calibre body hair was used and was not buzz cut/shaved.
The patient is a long time reader of these forums. I hope he posts some day. His HT history has a wealth of information that people can benefit from.
However, till he decides to post himself, I will refer to him, for sake of convinience, as MCH.
I intend to post pictures and videos to help understand how BHT has helped this patient and can help others.
Regards, Dr. A

nice improvement from what I can tell;´ we mustn´t forget it was all body hair which takes longer to grow on scalp, even a scalp FUE transplantation wouldn´t have reached its final outcome yet; I´m looking forward to seeing its final outcome!

Well said. Scalp hairs grow almost twice as fast as body hair, I would say 2 years would show final results.
