It is with great pride and pleasure that we present this case from Dr. Kostis and thank you to the patient also for allowing us to do so. He will keep good progress and share with us through to the 12 month mark.

Dr. Kostis who himself underwent a hair transplant earlier in the year and has seen very fast and tremendous growth, here also it is good to see that his own patient is following in the same trend!

Dr. Kostis has been dedicated to this field for the past 2 years and with close training under world renowned Dr. Bisanga, has himself now earned the right to use the BHR Clinic name and is presenting cases that are already showing the signature tune of Dr. Bisanga himself, fast growth, clean extraction with an educated pattern, a very natural and methodical spreading of the grafts to ensure that not only the right follicular units are used in the hair line, but also, there is a strategic placing throughout the frontal third to give the best illusion for minimal grafts used.

Here Dr. Kostis cut the recipient sites that give the depth, direction, density, angulation and overall result that the patient is looking for and with a conservative approach, keeping in mind future loss, was able to cover a significant area with 2950 grafts. In short the result at 5 months is looking good and is already a significant transformation for a patient who is himself a doctor and very happy with how things are going.

The best is still yet to come but here is a glimpse of what we will see in the coming months and also the quality, attention to detail, the growth and donor preservation that Dr.Kostis had developed and flourished under the eye of Dr.Bisanga, and indeed in keeping with all of the aspects that we deem important.

The patient is not on any medication for hair loss.

Graft Breakdown:-

1s 410 = 410 Hairs
2s 1382 = 2764 Hairs
3s 1011 = 3033 Hairs
4s 147 = 588 Hairs

Total: 2950/6795 = 2.3 Average Hair per graft.

He's come a long way for 5 months. Quick question, what are the little bald patches? Is it Alopecia or just something to do with the pictures? Will he experience much more growth or just thickening?

Thanks @Viking

The patches that you are referring to are areas that have been shaved down at pre surgery consultation to be able to accurately measure donor density and hair calibre and groupings.

5 months is still very early in the process and growth at this stage is impressive. Considering the graft count used was less than the 3000 grafts typically required for a frontal third restoration, the patient is very happy with coverage and density at this early stage.

Considering an average growth timeline, 6 months represents between 40-60% of final growth. Based on the 5 month status of this patient with still a further month of improvement to go before reaching the 6 month milestone, he has much to look forward to in terms of improvement.

His hair is also kept quite short at this stage. Hair restoration represents the "illusion of density" and to further supplement the illusion, hair length can make quite a difference. As growth improves, if hair length is maintained a little longer, this will also reinforce the illusion further. Currently the patient is very happy and confident at the length shown in the photos.

He looks to be well on his way to a superb result….Thanks for explaining the shaved parts….I was wondering what they were.

A lovely progression on this case that was already looking good at 5 months. A big thank you to the patient for his photos that he had provided and is very happy with the progress so far and will provide more through to the 12 months stage.

This was a conservative approach in design and graft numbers and the patient’s donor is in excellent condition for more surgery in the future if ever needed.

He has achieved a very nice density increase these past 3 months. At 8 months I think most patients would be happy as is.
What is the reason the patient is not using any meds? I did notice some thinning just behind the transplanted area in his pre op pictures. His donor looks to be in excellent condition, a good reserve if he does decide he needs a second surgery in the future.
Thanks for the update. I’ll look forward to seeing this at 12 months.

Thanks for the support and interest.

Dr. Kostis is based and resident at our Brussels clinic alongside Dr. Bisanga.

FUE surgery performed by Dr. Kostis is priced at €2.50 per graft.
With the growing interest that Dr. Kostis is currently experiencing, we should hopefully be able to share some more of his case results shortly with the permission from his patients.

Thank you @HairHunter

Absolutely. With patients permission, we will have some new cases coming up shortly that I am very excited to share and I have no doubt that the support and interest will continue as Dr. Kostis´ reputation and demand will grow.

Working directly alongside Dr. Bisanga on a daily basis has exposed Dr. Kostis to literally hundreds and hundreds of cases over the last years and Dr. Bisanga has worked extremely hard to earn the reputation and standing within the hair restoration community that he has. He is very demanding in regard to the quality of his team and he has much respect for Dr. Kostis and the quality of FUE that he performs.
