"2100 FUE with Dr. Armani - great job!"
Sun Dec-24-06 10:28 AM by kgill

  

          

I would like to start by thanking Dr. Armani for a job well done.

Here is some history behind my case:

I received 2100 FUE with Dr. Armani about one year ago today and wanted to thicken the hairline and behind the hairline.

I would say that i'm at around 60 grafts cm2, though i need to confirm this.

Overall, great experience with clinic, excellent care and i'm very happy with the outcome. I finally have more styling options.

Questions can be directed here, and i'll try to answer each one.

My results:

(better pics)



Thanks.

I'm wondering what your hair looks like wet. I had a transplant with Armani too (close to 6 months ago), and my wet shot isn't as impressive as my dry hair shots are. Thanks in advance!

kqill,

WOW. you look amazing..i was wondering if you can tell me if you asked for 60 cm/2 or did you ask for a higher % but only yielded 60?
i would like to know this because i am going January 4th, 2007 for 3000-3500 at 90cm/2 front (STRIP) and then a month or 2 later for 2000-3000 at 90cm/2 in the back (FUE) i am VERY excited but curious about the yield... the reason why i am getting FUE the second time around is because Dr. Armani does no want to exhaust my strip (since i had 1750 from MHR) so this way i will have enough grafts to get my expectations of full original density AND it wont like thin in the back......

i would like to know if 60cm/2 was your goal
thanks VERY MUCH for posting this Kqill

Very nice indeed. What punch size did he use? What is the average number of hairs per FU grouping? What was the total cost, if you don't mind saying. Enjoy.

First FUE hairline that I truly like. Where s Sizzler, you should take a good long look at this. That's how it is done.

Guys,

There is no freaking way! Did you take your gullible pills? Picture #4 is either the most optimal angle ever known, this guy looks like crap in person, or this is outright fraud! This is a case out of the impossible files.

Thanks everyone. Iíll try to answer your questions as best I can.

This was my first session of two. The results are from the first session of 2100 grafts. I received another FUE procedure of 2400 grafts for the crown and behind the first area about two months ago and am now waiting for the result. Iíll also update you guys when that result is in from the second session.

Iím more than satisfied with the first session. Sorry to burst your bubble xairyhay1 but my results do not look like crap in person. My wife would also disagree with that statement and my sister who is a hairdresser would also. Itís that kind of remark that makes me wonder why I would even bother posting my story.

Anyhow, thanks Plank. I canít say enough about Dr. Armani and his staff. My experience was excellent and over the top. Their clinic is run very well and all of my questions were answered in a timely fashion. Thanks again to Dr. Armani and his team. You will be in great hands.

Thanks Jackson, Johny Baldy and the rest. Your support is appreciated. Sorry if I missed anyone.

I wanted a more conservative hairline haleystudios and asked for lower density. Iím very happy with the outcome and feel no desire to thicken anything at this time. Dr. Armani was very attentive to my needs and I thank him for that. Good luck with your upcoming procedure. You are in excellent hands.

Here are some additional photos for everyone to enjoy from my first session in the hairline and my second session in the crown.

Have a merry Christmas.

Alright, now what universe do you live in that if someone questions a result, they are a shill and a strip proponent? If you've ever read any of my posts you'd know that I have had 5 strip procedures, look like crap, and am forced to use a ton of ProThik every day of my life! What am I a shill for... ProThik?

If I get another procedure, it will likely be a BHT.

As far as your results kgill, I had a hard time swallowing that 2400 grafts alone could produce the density that appears in that first picture. Don't get me wrong, I wish you (and all hairloss sufferers) the best, but 2400 grafts put into 100cm2 yields 24 grafts per cm2. Your result in the first set of pictures sure looks denser than that to me. Looking at your expanded set, I note 2 things... one, you did have some hair their initially, and two you have included a few shots that look significantly thinner than the first set.

I apologize for my initial statements suggesting some actual wrongdoing.

Merry Xmas to all!

Great results. I was wondering if the Doc told you how many grafts you have available after the 4500 you already used? I heard from other docs about 5000 total by fue and then I heard 10-12000 by fue from armani.

I am glad I finally get to see some grown out fue results from Armani. If I can see several more results like this, this will put the fue-strip debate to rest.

Thanks xairyhay1. Though saying that my results look like crap in person was kind of harsh. Iím just a normal guy like everyone else who is trying to get back something I lost a long time ago. I was not trying to mislead anyone.

I did have some hair there prior and did receive 2100 grafts not 2400. I agree itís not as thick as other results but I did not want a thick look. I wanted a more conservative approach. Dr. Armani was very attentive to my needs, and I thank him for that.

I also feel itís a significant improvement from such a small number of grafts, and that the yield was near perfect. Iím very happy with this look and the hairline is 100% natural looking. I can thank Dr. Armaniís artistic approach for this.

Dr. Armani said I have another 7000 grafts available if I need them whereismyhairgoing. He has harvested 4500 to date from both sessions and the area looks great and shows no signs of thinning.

everyone is saying how good his hairline looks and i only see 1 photo he's posted which is this:




has he edited his post and took out the other photos??? where are the before and after pics??? was this the only pic posted????

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

Three reasonable wishes:

1) Hairline & density back to the way it was when I was 18
2) Financially comfortable
3) To have the same ability as nightcrawler from X-Men 2

Thank HairSite for posting those images like that. Iím still trying to get the hang of things. The wet shot is to show my hairline. It looks thinner than the dry shot because hair always looks thinner when itís wet MuscleBoy. Did you have a fue procedure or strip with Dr. Armani?

I asked for a more conservative result and only 2100 fue were used by Dr. Armani in such a large area. Dr. Armani was very attentive to my needs and I thank him for that.

The very first thin shot is after a small session before at another clinic. The second session was 2100 fue from Dr. Armani to thicken the area and create the hairline and the third session of 2400 fue was to thicken the area behind and the crown. I had that session a few months ago and am still waiting for the result in that area and will share my progress in a few more months.

I received two separate sessions with Dr. Armani totaling 4500 grafts. The images only show the results from the first session and Iím waiting for the second session to grow from the crown and a bit behind.

I think people are confused by how the images are displayed. Iíll do them again.

- The first set is me before.

- The second set is from the procedure of 2100 grafts and the final result.

- The third set if from by procedure of 2400 grafts and Iím still waiting for the result.

My bad. I probably did not arrange the pics in the correct order, hence the confusion. Thanks for the clarification.

I've got a comment for ya - blow it out your a$$, Fittest. This is CLEARLY an excellent result performed by an excellent surgeon. Those who constantly look for problems eventually find them. Last time I checked, we do not live in a perfect world. Compare this...

jtelecom,

There is no reason for you to be belligerent. You have no idea what I was going to say. So please don't flame me for no reason.

My point was simple: the photos originally posted in this thread gave an impression of density which was not truly there. The photos WERE NOT intentionally deceptive.

The photos that are in this thread now are INFINITELY BETTER than the first posted photos. Now one sees a realistic amount of coverage from the number of grafts moved.

Perhaps the original poster could publish them side by side as an illustration of what I mean.

It's unfortunate that you have a problem with my posts. The points I make are made in an effort to be helpful.

Best,
TheFittest

So I guess my confusion is of either information or marketing tactics. There is a thread from a week or so back wondering if 3000 fue grafts will thin out the donor too much and Dr. Armani is telling this guy and others they can get 11,500 from fue??? One of the pics from kgill's (where the crown and top of donor are both shown) does look like Armani took fue grafts pretty high up on the back of the head which might be considered out of the safe zone if people think you need a safe zone with fue. My theory from these pics is that Armani is taking fue grafts from a donor area assuming kgill will never progress past a NW5. These are just my thoughts and I would like Shane (if he posts on this site) or anyone else to try and help clear this up for me. From talking with a few other docs it seems like 4000-7000 fue grafts seem to be the norm for people with an average donor density.

Kgill can you remember what you donor density was? I guess I am just trying to figure out how Dr. Armani is supposedly getting 2 or 3 times as many grafts via fue as other Docs.

Kgill...thanks for all your help and posting your pics, I appreciate it.

Did I understand you correctly ? He took out donor from the top ? I think that is part of the recipient , no ? No doctor would take donor from the top, I hope not

Thanks kgill for sharing your story. We appreciate it. If you need anything else, please let me know. I also hope that you have a safe and happy New Year.

I think I understand your question whereismyhairgoing...

Kgill has over 11,000 grafts available via FUE and FUSS (strip) combo...IF HE NEEDS THEM (less what he received). In this case, he decided to schedule FUE; however, the option to return to FUSS is still open to him.

After viewing the patient's genetic balding pattern (mother and fathers side), signs of miniaturization to determine and his future balding pattern, it was determined that he would not progress past a NW5.

Combine this with his age (he is older) and use of medications such as Rogaine and Propecia, it was also determined that his donor area (the hair thatís safe to transplant), is actually higher than most patients with different balding patterns. Itís also average in terms of density.

Each patientís safety zone will be different. Thatís why itís important to understand the particulars of each case prior to coming to any conclusion.

You are correct, 4000-7000 (rough range/number) fue grafts seems to be the norm for people with average donor density; however, this does not mean that they are ďout of grafts so to speakĒ.

The option for FUSS treatment still remains and at the lower end, that means an additional 5,000 grafts. Add 5,000 grafts via FUSS, plus 4,000 grafts via FUE and you end up with 9,000 available grafts, ďat the lower endĒ.

You can learn more about this here:
http://www.hairsite4.com/dc/dcboard.php?az=show_mesg&forum=12&topic_id=49243&mesg_id=49565&page=2

Also, the notion that 4000 FUE will thin out a donor area to unacceptable levels is false (I'll post some photos tomorrow to prove this). We have a number of patients who received such a large number via FUE and their donor area is fine. We also have a patient (a class 6) who received over 12,000 grafts via a FUE /FUSS combo and his donor region looks fine.

Is it possible for every patient to achieve such large number of grafts - no. But typically they are not good candidates for hair transplantation. This can be determined by looking for signs of miniaturization at an early age and of course the patientís balding pattern/genetic balding pattern and or family history of hair loss.

I hope this helps.

Have a question? Send me an e-mail... Shane at ... soquinn@alviarmani.com

Hi kgill, you did not send me an e-mail like i asked. Can you please send me one? I'm also looking at Dr. Armani and need to speak to as many of his patients as possible. Thanks! Your result is excellent by the way. You must be happy.

I'll try to send you an email tonight. It's the holidays and i'm trying to relax more than anything. I can say that you will be in good hands with Dr. Armani. Are you looking into fue or strip?

Kgill can I ask whether it was your decision to have the pointy hairline design or was it Armani's idea? I am just curious how does someone decide between a round hairline and a pointy hairline. Does having a round hairline require more grafts?

Hi Kgill,

i am very happy for you.. your timing of your results could not have come at a better time so that we could see DR. ARMANI'S fue result.. as you know i am doing strip for the front of my head, and fue for the back.. and i was kind of scared because i have never seen any fue results except for a couple.. but not the grown out result..... so after seeing and requesting a low denisty, WOW, i am confident now....


will will be posting my strip, and fue results from Armani for EVERYONE, so there is no confusing.... i guess it doesnt hurt too much to be a perfectionist, ha ha...
good luck


I go into the chair next week

Hi helpmeout,

I wanted that hairline design and Dr. Armani was very attentive to my needs. I thank him for that. In the end i wanted more of a conservative look and not very thick. That's why i went for 2100 grafts in the first round. Money for me is not really an issue and i could have had more. I guess what attracted Dr. Armani to me was his artistic approach to hairlines.

Good luck with your procedure haleystudios. You are in excellent hands. The support that i received from Dr. Armani and his staff is second to none. Please be sure to keep us updated with photos.

absolutely....
no problem....
i think i will have one of the few getting original density restored.... not an illusion but real original density...
so i find it very important to share my store on every hairloss site
and to all my hairloss suffers in Mississippi as well as my friend musicians in the music industry...
i plan on crystal clear pics...
analysis everyday for the first month
and then when growth occurs
and also the second surgery for the fue pics.....
since i am only a 3v.... i will be able to pull this off
with grafts for the future with the fue/fuss combo....
i will be getting 3000-3500 for the front
i will be getting 2000-3000 for the back
i will be getting 10% less than original density
so if i am 100 cm/2 originally, then i will be getting 90 cm/2
or if i am 90 cm/2 originally, then i will be getting 80 cm/2
good luck with your growth and you look remarkable

Congrats, this is one of the best placed 4500 grafts ever.

I'd guess you have some monster nice quality hair to back it up, but Armani outdid himslef optimizing it for you.

This is what everyone wishes for, camera angles or not, you got some nice work for your money.

Hope to see more like this turned out by Armani.

Apologies for my former post Fexjo, Kgill and Armani - for some reason I could only see the 'before' picture which I thought was being presented as the 'after' picture. My mistake.

Anyway nice job and congrats to all.
