Repairing a “Pluggy” Patient with FUE (1658 grafts): Carlos K. Wesley, M.D. (NYC & LA)



Media Mgr Dr. Carlos K. Wesley

In order to repair a poorly-executed transplant performed by another surgeon, this patient underwent a combined FUT and follicular unit extraction (FUE) session with Dr. Carlos K. Wesleyin which a total of 1658 grafts were placed.

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

Dr. Wesley used a 0.85mm caliber hand-held motorized punch to perform the FUE donor harvest. Upon completion of the harvest, the patient’s donor area was treated with PRP and ACell in order to not only minimize scar tissue formation, but also encourage partial regeneration of donor hair follicles.

The patient returned four years after his procedure and images of the patient can be seen below.
