The following hair transplant question was answered by recommended hair restoration surgeon Dr. Tejinder Bhatti: I got a follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplant of 1500 grafts done. The donor area patch is off-centered and visible after day 11. Will this patch cover up? Will I be able to keep the current length hairstyle or no? Was the harvesting done properly? Please help! You are not technically dealing with scar tissue quite yet, as the collagen over-expression takes about four weeks or longer to cross over into scar formation territory. Based on the density that appears to be in your donor region, outside of the FUE extraction zone, I believe this to be a combination of shock loss and potential over harvesting. The approach could have been better but I believe the donor will recover to some degree.

Whenever I imagined a robot working with humans, I thought of that friendly maid on the Jetsons and also on that robotic treadmill she entered every morning and exited showered, dressed and styled. Later my reference began to be those intelligent and friendly robots in the “Star Wars” series, performing complex tasks and with artificial intelligence. Well, mine, for now, is not that smart. And as all ARTAS must have a name, to facilitate communication within the company, mine is called R-2, in homage of R-2-D-2, the friendly cybernetic hero of Star Wars. Since the beginning I knew that the robotics technology was still evolving and that in the beginning its operation had been rather inconsistent and with several failures. That was what was heard by […]

This hair restoration question was answered by hair loss forum member “ArochaHair”, online representative for Coalition physician Dr. Bernardino Arocha: I sent my pre-op pictures to 3 different hair transplant surgeons in India (2 FUE, 1 Strip using Trichophytic Closure). One says I need 2200 grafts. Another says 3000. Third says 4000. I’m very confused. Also, the strip doctor claims I will have invisible scars (he’s the cheapest of the lot). Can I trust him in his claim? All 3 are recommended and reviewed in this forum. There are no guarantees with follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS) or with follicular unit extraction (FUE). None. The first steps you should consider are to look at cases on the websites of these hair restoration physicians and ask yourself if you see similar cases with similar graft estimates that they gave you and if those results are what you would consider to be desirable. Ask them to explain the differences between quotes that you’ve received. Any estimate you’ve been given should be explainable if required. ArochaHair […]
