#BeforeAndAfterMonday

This female patient underwent a follicular unit transplantation (FUT) session with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley in which a total of 1207 grafts were placed

Her hair follicles were incubated in autologous (her own) platelet rich plasma (PRP) throughout the duration of the procedure. This, combined with an ATP-containing storage solution has been shown to enhance survival of transplanted hairs.

As with all of Dr. Wesley’s patients, she was NOT required to shave her hair for the procedure. As a result, this patient was able to return comfortably to work and social activities within approximately 7-10 days of his procedure.

The patient returned one year after her procedure and images of the patient can be seen below.

Brilliantly done! Did any of the donor area need cutting to remove the strip or was she able to keep her hair long at the back then.

Thank you Bandit!

The hair on the strip that was removed was cut shorter but once the strip was removed and the wound sutured closed, the rest of hair was kept long to cover the stitches (if at all visible) so she can go back to her regular activities right away.

Have a great week ahead!
