#BAM When PRP Bows to Surgery - Female Hairlines: Carlos K. Wesley, MD (1882 grafts): Carlos K. Wesley, M.D. (NYC & LA)



Hair Transplant Nurse

Nine months after attempting a series of 2 platelet rich plasma PRP treatments to fill in her hairline recessions, this 45-year-old woman underwent a follicular unit transplantation FUT session withDr. Carlos K. Wesley in which a total of 1882 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 6 months after her surgical procedure and images of the patient can be seen below.




How long after a surgery like this would she be able to colour her hair if she desired?

Good outcome, i bet she was glad she didn't have to shave her hair.
