"4300+ fine hair bht for repair (7 month update of MCH)"


          

Dear forum readers,
We recently finished the 2nd session of a patient who is undergoing repair procedure with us.
The patient is not a poster - yet.
Hopefully, one day, he will post his experiences on the forums.
Till then for sake of convinience, I will refer to him as MCH.

His history of hair restorations procedures is the most "exhaustive" one that I have ever witnessed.

The person is a 40 year old Caucasian from USA, who first noted hairloss at 19 years of age.
He has, to date, got 25-30 hair restoration surgeries performed.
The details of his previous surgeries and the procedure performed by us on the last visit are given at the following thread.

http://www.hairsite4.com/dc/dcboard.php?az=show_topic&forum=12&topic_id=33526&mode=full

There is a wealth of information to be gleaned from his bht and repair procedures.

I will go about them one by one.
Please bear with me.
Regards,
Dr. A

#1. "MCH - Jan 2006 - taking grafts out of the flap hairline"
In response to Reply # 0


          

MCH had come to us in Jan 2006, 8 months after a 1300 bht procedure with another clinic.

No work was done in the area that had been worked upon by the previous clinic.

The bht procedure at our clinic, in Jan 2006, had included, various things. One was debulking the Flap by extracting multi Hair FUs from flap hairline.
Debulking the flap hairline.
FUs (2 and 3 hair ones) were extracted from the front few rows of the flap. The aim was to reduce the amount of tissue as well as take out the multi hair FUs that are not supposed to be a part of the natural hairline.
The flap had contracted over the years. This is a common finding. As a result, the flap hairline is raised and feels odd to the patient.
Extracting FUs with tissue helps to debulk the hairline.

In response to Reply # 0


          

The next step was to transplant the fine calibre body hair into the front row of the flap hairline to refine it.


The hairline area



Fine BH grafts were also transplanted into the temple areas to subtly thicken them.

In response to Reply # 2


          

Grafts were extracted from the right side hairline as well as the corner of the flap that was obliterating the temple recession.


Few fine BH grafts, were transplanted into the hairline. The BH grafts were also used to enhance the temple on the right side too.


FU grafts extracted from the right side hairline


BH grafts placed in the right temple.

In response to Reply # 5
Mon Aug-28-06 05:19 PM by Dr. Arvind

          

This is the picture of the transplanted body hair (as seen in Aug 2006).
It is distinguishable by -
1. Its thin calibre as compared to the flap's scalp hair, and
2. Its slower speed of growth compared to the scalp hair.

At this close a view, the difference is easy to make out.

In response to Reply # 6


          

Now after having understood what to look for, it will be easier to make out the growth of the fine BH on the recipient areas on top of MCH's scalp.

In the picture that follows, you can make out the finer transplanted BH, growing amid the thicker calibre scalp hair.

#8. "Hairline picture & pertinent observation"
In response to Reply # 0


          

Dear forum readers,
Following is the picture of the hairline.
What you are looking at is a flap hairline that has been thinned out with FUSE (with some BH grafted in).
MCH was very pleased that there was no white dots or scarring post fue even on very close inspection.




I will post more pictures and details of MCH's bht repair tomorrow.

Important observation and advise to BHT dcotors
However, I feel it is pertinent to point out something at this juncture.

MCH's case too was performed using fine calibre body hair.
MCH did not trim, buzz or shaved his transplanted body hair.
Imagine, if he were to shave his scalp today, the fine visible BH, would take a long time to manifest themselves again.

That is something that people going in for BHT need to keep in mind.
The doctors too should be aware of this so that they can accordingly guide patients about the true situation.
Lack of awareness of these concepts, and of hair cycles, on part of BHT doctors is sad.
Hopefully, MCH's case will bring these things into the common knowledge pool.

Regards,
Dr. A

Looking over some 6 years of bht. The fine arm bh is perfect for hairline feathering no question. Loading up mid scalp and crown these hairs not really worth it. Use of robust chest back hair seem like the way to go in these areas. Not so sure if we know as fact that buzzing really makes a huge difference after 15 months or so of growth. More to come as we watch these meggasession outcomes.

#11. "FUSE extraction from hairline - videoclip"
In response to Reply # 10


          

Many patients enquire about the extent of visible scarring after extraction of grafts from the hairline area. This may be due to wrongly placed FU grafts or, as in this case, repair of a Flap hairline.

Following is the video showing the site from where the FUSE grafts were extracted the last time.

#13. "Important observation re previous doctor"
In response to Reply # 12


          

Dear forum readers,
We had posted this case in Jan 2006.
http://www.hairsite4.com/dc/dcboard.php?az=show_topic&forum=12&topic_id=33526&mode=full

One of the aspects of MCH's bht with the previous doctor (before coming to us) was that-
1. The donor extraction wounds were very large,
2. The donor scarring had not vanished even at 8 months, though the patient had been told that it would in 2-3 months.
MCH was not happy with these issues.

At that time, our advise to the patient had been,

>>>>We have advised the patient that these donor scars will resolve over time. It takes slightly longer in some patients. It may take slightly longer in some areas of the same patient too.
It would be unethical on part of physicians to pretend that the scarring from any other doctor/clinic will remain on a permanent basis, while their own extractions will heal in a few short months sans any scars.<<<<

I am happy to say that MCH's healing has progressed along the lines we predicted.
Today, as per his admission, the BHT donor scars, from the bht procedure with the previous doctor, are not visible to the casual glance.

Its not to say that larger extraction tools be used.
Smaller donor sites ensure that the healing proceeds faster and the epidermal migration during wound healing prevents any visible white spots.
Anti inflammatory medications ensure that the brown spots also last for lesser duration of time.
---------------------------------------

However, doctors must learn more about the healing processes of the body rather than jump to simplistic conclusions.

In response to any injury the body will heal with either a hypo or a transient hyperpigmentation response.

As I have mentioned before, the healing in the body donor areas proceeds along one of the two lines-
1. Red spots that slowly fade to white ones (hypopigmentation/nonpigmentation)
2. Red spots taking on a brownish color (hyperpigmentation), that slowly fade with time.

MCH's previous BH healing has proceeded along the second course.
The second course, usually seen in individuals with darker skin, leads to formation of brown spots that slowly fade with time.

The formation of brown spots (transient hyperpigmentation) means that the melanocytes have proliferated into the wound's scar tissue. That minimises chances of white spots on complete resolution of the extraction wound.

------------------------------

We probably see more patients with darker skin types 4 to 6. That may be the reason why we know more about these facts about the healing patterns. However, I feel the same should be shared with my fellow HT doctors and readers alike.


Following is the picture of the donor area of the calf, from where the previous BHT doctor had extracted bh grafts.
The pictures of Jan 2006 are posted on the thread where the patient's case was discussed in Jan 2006.

Dr. A, good job filming this and combing the hair in the video. Most vidoes on the web don't show that. I like to see how doctors comb through the hair in different directions to show how the hair flow. Very nice. Congrats.

When I seen this guy has had 25 surgeries......................man I wanted to literally break down and cry for him. He's been through alot. Im gland BHT is available in the now for people like him. I know some are really hard on BHT's but for some in repair situations, they can be a life saver. I wouldn't have 'made' him on the street as a guy with an HT just looking at the hairline alone. That says alot as I can usually spot HT's.

#18. "MCH - surgery details of Aug 2006"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

August 2006 -

MCH's crown area was transplanted into this time.
The area had been left untouched last time, as it was only 8 months since previous bht.
In Aug 2006, it was 16 months from previous bht.

Body hair from forearms, armpits, legs, chest and abdomen were transplanted into this area.

Picture of the crown area in Aug 2006



It is worth pointing out that MCH has had a scalp reduction and the resultant linear scar is difficultto see in pctures. However, due to its presence, the hair part on both sides of the scar. That disturbs MCH.
This linear scar stretches from the occiput to just behind the flap hairline.
Having noticed good growth in the front part of the linear scalp reduction scar, MCH has decided to go for more work into the remaining part of the reduction scar.
This picture shows the location of the linear scar in form of the blue line.

Best regards,
Dr. Sangay C.B.

#19. "RE: MCH - surgery details of Aug 2006"
In response to Reply # 18


          

Its hard to believe, but there are still docs out there swearin' by scalp flaps and lifts.....................with the risk of skin death, stretchback, too full hairlines, etc. One in Beverly Hills that I emailed about still doing that procedure is still quite bullish on the flap procedure.

I remember in the late eighties and early nineties there would be unbelievably good pictures of guys who just got flaps in the back of bodybuilding magazines. I always wondered what became of those same men and how the hair looked in the former donor area where they have removed all that skin.

These pictures show the crown (and linear scalp recduction scar) as proposed recipient areas for Aug 2006, as well as intraoperative pictures during the course of the graft placement.

#21. "MCH - Close up of hairline - Aug 2006"
In response to Reply # 20


  

          

This is the close up picture of the hairline as seen in Aug 2006.




The picture that follows is another close up taken in Aug 2006.
Here, the hair have been trimmed in the flap hairline as well as those growing on the corner of the flap.
Some hair in that area (which in nature is a temporal recession), were extracted in Jan 2006.
The extractions have not left any visible marks, and have led to debulking of the flap. Its now much smoother, in MCH's opinion. Just like what the normal scalp should be.

#22. "Beard hair fue"
In response to Reply # 0


          

Dear forum readers,
One of the aspects of MCH's repair procedure was the use of beard hair for transplanting into the strip scars.

Some of the strip scars are more visible to MCH, especially those on the sides.
As with many patients before him, MCH has also expressed desire to have a test session of beard hair.
He feels this is the best calibre and the hardiest hair and would stand the best chance of growth in the strip scars.
Additionally, transplanted at a suitably acute angle, these hair will go a long way in breaking up and camoflaging the scar.
A total of 22 beard hair follicles were extracted from just below the chin.
These were transplanted into the widest portion of the strip scar - 11 on each side.


Pictures of the beard hair grafts and their recipient site

The use of facial hair is an additional avenue and resource for people with severely depleted scalp donor.
However, we still advise patients to go in smaller sessions initially.

In response to Reply # 22


          

Dr A, his beard under his chin looks a little sparse. Are you sure he hasn't had Beard FUE before (just kidding)? Seriously, it clearly seems that it best to do under the chin for 2 reasons 1) not very visible location, 2) not a place where the sun is going to hit very often.

What are your thoughts of DEM body hair into those holes? It wouldn't be as thick in caliber as the beard, but it would fill gaps?

Dear Checkingin,
The healing in this area is exceptionally fast and uneventful.
However, use of DEM is an option.
It will also show a clear area where the lesser calibre hair have been transplanted into extraction sites of larger calibre hair. And whether the new location leads to change in transplanted hair characteristics.

However, the same was not done in this patient.

Dr. A

#23. "MCH - the reconstructed temple"
In response to Reply # 0
Wed Aug-30-06 03:38 PM by Dr. Arvind

          

Dear forum readers,
In Jan 2006, one of the strategies to repair the flap hairline had been to reinforce the temple while thinning the hair in the flap (in area where there should be a temporal recession).

In Aug 2006, as can be seen in the picture below,
1. the temple has been thickened post bht,(red arrow)
2. the triangular area marked in black (blue arrow), has been thinned and debulked sans any visible scarring. This time, this area was further depleted. The aim is to get rid of all hair in this area.



Please let me know if you have any queries.
Regards,
Dr. A
