This dedicated 33-year-old did it! By painstakingly capturing images of his scalp each day following his 2453 graft follicular unit transplantation FUT session with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley and team, he created a time lapse of his hair growth. The patient s hair follicles were incubated in platelet rich plasma PRP throughout the duration of the procedure.
Patients have heard of the possible "shock loss" of pre-existing hairs following the procedure as well as the recovery. This video helps illustrate the process.
As with all of Dr. Wesley s patients, he was NOT required to cut his 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.
In addition to capturing this detailed series of images at home, the patient also returned to the United Sates one year after his procedure and images of the patient can be seen in the video.
