V:

Can you please state how many grafts, and how many months post op ? It is becoming VERY DIFFICULT to archive the forum posts without seeing how many grafts and how many months post op in the subject line.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

I don't understand the point of this thread, it seems the 'first stage' is a complete non event, I can't see any difference in the before & 'after' pics at all!

Might be worth waiting till say 'stage 5' and posting then, at this rate however the guy will probably be bald everywhere else by then!

The simplicity and minimal invasiveness of body hair transplants allow such small sessions. These is unimaginable with strip.

But I don't see any cosmetic improvement from such small sessions thus rendering them pointless in my view. 400/500 grafts perhaps but with months before grafts will even grow why bother with sessions as little as 160?

Small sessions like these have their place. There are too many crap docs claiming to be able to do fue bht. Small sessions empowers the patient. In case of this gent, this may be all that he requires right now.

It's nice to see patients trying bodyhair. It helps those of us who might need it in the future evaluate it's effectiveness.

If I was a doctor, I would tell this patient, you do not need a hairtransplant, you have a full head of hair. I could not ethically perform surgery on this man.

I try not to be too crititcal in my postings, but sometimes someone has to speak out.

I am not a doctor, I am not a surgical tech, I am a hair transplant victim.

Greetings fellow "BHT in the hairline" brother!

Wishing you the same success I had with a similar procedure.
(Dr. U. used leg hair in my hairline.)
I'm very interested to see how chest hair grows out.

We seem to have sinilar donor hair as well.

Please keep us posted and welcome to a very exclusive club. Lol.

Peace.

This patient had been refused scalp ht 4 years ago when he visited us.
He has visited us over the years.
His speed of hair thinning is very slow.
He has no family history of hairloss.
He knows he may have to go for more ht if, and when, he loses more hair.


Body hair transplants have opened up new avenues.
A minimally strengthened hairline, a sparsely created forlock or a smattering of hair in the thinned out crown without using up scalp donor hair, open up possibilities that did not exist before.

For this patient, 160 body hair grafts have given him something of a test session.
Without losing any scalp donor hair and without too invasive a process, he has been able to acheive his objectives for the present. He has been/ will be able to, verify the healing as well as the growth firsthand.

His aim is to get small sessions of such transplants as required.
To avoid reaching a stage where he first loses hair and then regains it.

Usually, refusing to perform surgery on a patient implies that the surgery would cause harm, or not be in the patient's best interest. Perhaps he's just concerned about his appearance, and wants the hairline fuller (although growth at 7 weeks would be early, it can happen).
If so, he may indeed be a candidate. Remember, HT is an elective procedure, it is not necessary in anyone. So why shouldn't this guy have the benefit if he wants it? Does anyone really NEED a hair transplant?
Just playin' devil's advocate.

Are you saying that the grafts grew in just 7 weeks ? Call me stupid but I don't understand the purpose of this thread.

One of my concerns would be caliber mismatch. Chest hairs tend to be some of the most coarse (high caliber) on the body. I would worry that they would stand out amongst the fine, soft semi-vellus hairs on the anterior hairline.

I wonder why he was so dead set against scalp hair. We feel that scalp is preferable to body for match, and for other reasons.
I have seen patients like this however; one cannot rationalize with them about certain issues.
