Dr. Cole One Year Result (Hair Transplant)

When our patient from North Wales UK first noticed he was losing hair back in 2004, he consulted with his family doctor and was advised to treat his hair loss with minoxidil. He is one of those rare individuals who reacted with pain, inflammation and swelling. Our patient was later employed in South Korea and took advantage of the cosmetic surgery industry there and had strip surgery. He told me that he was not happy with the experience or the results. Most of the grafts from the strip surgery were placed on the hairline in a haphazard fashion. Angles were wrong and the result was a total mess. Dr. Cole removed most of those grafts.

Our patient is here visiting us in the US about a year after his final hair restoration surgery with Dr. Cole. Yesterday (08-01-2013), we took some photos of his 3007-graft result.

Our patient has exceptionally dense as well as thick caliber donor hair.

It definitely does. The only way a guy with fine hair like me will ever see such results is if donor regeneration/"donor doubling" becomes more consistent. Short of HM, that's the dream. ;-)

We had a 40+ year old patient in for a consult wanting to have stand-alone ACell/PRP treatment. He also has been using Avodart for many years. His hair really looked good as it is. Just very slightly thin on top.

The great stand-alone ACell/PRP result I recently posted was of a patient who has been using Avodart for many years as well.

Hello

few times ago you said on this forum you seen regrowth at donor (you even said 60%...) with what you call a normal FUE, but less deeper hole, with ACELL and PRP. You also said you dont like doubling.

I would like to know what exactly you mean by that ? Do you take the whole graft at a deep of 4mm as dr cooley but wth transection ? If so it seems to be doubling.. So dont understand you on that

Thanks for your explanation

Tom:
I'm not sure what you mean by not liking doubling. I believe you may have meant that minimal depth FUE is different from doubling. Our goal is to see as many extracted donor hairs as possible grow back.

Hey Chuck,

You mentioned that pictures were posted showing regeneration, but I haven't been able to locate them. Could you post them here, or direct us where to find them. It seems that if you are seeing regeneration on a consistent basis, such pictures should be readily available.


Thanks.

A participant in a hair restoration/follicle regeneration study must be someone who agrees to photo release as well as being willing to return to the clinic and have areas of their head shaved down. Not as easy as it might seem finding someone willing to do this.

When ACell is applied to the donor extraction sites, they remain as pink dots for a limited time. Once the pinkness fades, we have found it nearly impossible to find the extraction sites. Dr. Cole wasn't aware at the time, but I was shooting video of him with my Galaxy S3 while he was taking a good bit of time locating the extraction sites on our patient using strong lighting and magnifying loupes.

I documented this particular study with video and photos. This was a combination study documenting the first use of our liquid bandage and ACell which we have been using on donor sites for several years. I focused upon videotaping the liquid bandage aspect and expected the individual extraction sites to remain delineated after the bandage was applied. As you can see from the image, they were not.

We plan to have the same patient back in for another study where I will get only photos that can be superimposed. The photo below illustrates healing but cannot illustrate follicle regeneration with this length of hair.

ACell was approved by the FDA as a regenerative product. It reduces scar tissue, increases blood vessel formation and in some cases regenerates hair follicles.

According to an ACell representative I spoke with a few weeks back, ACell is not available for sale outside the US. Perhaps other extracellular matrix products are. Not sure. Some doctors practicing outside the US are skeptical of ACell benefits.

In my opinion, ACell, PRP, and other healing technologies are the beginning of technologies that will transform hair restoration.

I agree with you. As I mentioned we will be doing a new study that focuses exclusively on follicle regeneration. During the last study, I was videotaping the application of our liquid bandage. I have video still images for comparison, but determining follicle regeneration from these images is difficult because the video had to be shot slightly from the side otherwise all that would appear on the video would be Dr. Cole's back. Comparing images shot from different angles is confusing because the follicles will not line up when superimposed. Similar to comparing photos with different aspect ratios.

Dr. Cole determines follicle regeneration using loupe magnification and a surgical light.

Reasonable photographic evidence is difficult but possible. The green dots on the lower photo indicate extraction sites that are growing hair Dr. Cole was able to locate using a surgical light and magnifying loupes. A more recent exam indicated two additional extraction sites growing hair.

It is simply too easy to document regeneration; all it takes is one before picture and one after picture, with the after picture showing hairs growing in extraction sites.

Dr. Cole has been a critic of others who allege regeneration. And then he claims regeneration, but you cannot provide any proof that can be independently verified? What gives?

Hi,

Thanks a lot for ur answer.

In this post: http://www.hairsite.com/hair-loss/board_entry-id-104232-page-0-category-2-order-last_answer-descasc-DESC.html

Dr cole said: 'The Acell approach is a little different than what Dr. Gho is doing. Dr. Gho is purposely bisecting follicles. i'm not as big of a fan of that simply because the yield will be less with bisected follicles"

wich I understand to be different different than that dr cooley is doing:

he takes graft 4mm deep with transection and then apply acell. Dr Cole clearly said he didnt. So he still see regeneration you mentioned between 50 to 60% following different case study.

I agree your technique could be better specially in terms of design at the recipient, but what exactly do you call the "minimal depth approach" ??

You leave 0% of the graft at the donor, so what is the depth of the hole ?

ACell heals the donor so well, the extraction sites can only be seen with magnifying loupes after a few months have passed. There are simply no pink dots in the pattern of extraction sites with hairs growing from them. The extraction sites are not pink or white and look identical to normal skin.

We do research but we are not a research establishment/clinic. The company, ACell had to provide the research to the FDA to support their claim that ACell products have regenerative properties. They successfully provided the necessary research papers and had their many regenerative products approved for sale to physicians.

We will be doing another study that focuses on follicle regeneration.

Side by side of a segment of a 12 follicular unit extraction...

I mentioned earlier that the ACell study we did was designed to determine the effectiveness of our liquid bandage. The image on the left is a still image grab from 1920 x 1080p video I shot of the liquid bandage being applied and cured. The blue circle is simply a reference point. Notice the pattern of multiple follicular units growing in an arch above the blue circle. By recognizing follicular groups and patterns, you will be able to recognize hair growing from an extraction site. The X is simply a reference point that indicates an extraction site that did not regrow a hair. The pink arrows indicate extraction sites that regrew hair as indicated by the yellow circles in the image on the right.

Hi Tom:
Minimal depth extraction means that the grafts are scored with the punch as shallow as possible allowing the hair/hairs in the follicular unit to be gently plucked. Minimal depth extraction leaves stem cells and reduces the risk of follicle transection.

The following are beard hairs removed by Dr. Cole:

The depth is different for every patient. The usual range is between two and two and a half millimeters.

Thank you CIT for your answer. So the whole is a little bit larger, i think i saw it in Dr Cole case study.

Italian Study from the Department of Skin-Venereal Disease and Reconstructive and Plastic Surgery, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy.
Abstract
BACKGROUND:
The use of bisected hair follicles in hair transplantation has been previously reported, but the capacity of each half to regenerate the entire hair has not been clarified.
OBJECTIVE:
To evaluate duplicative surgery rate of success and to analyze the cell populations involved in hair regeneration.
METHODS:
We screened 28 patients undergoing duplicative surgery. Approximately 100 hair follicles from each patient were horizontally bisected and implanted. Upper and lower portions were stained for the known epithelial stem cell markers CD200, p63, beta1-integrin, CD34, and K19.
RESULTS:
Similar percentages of hair regrowth after 12 months were observed when implanting the upper (72.7 +/- 0.4%) and lower (69.2 +/- 1.1%) portions. Expression of CD200, p63, and beta1-integrin was detected in both portions, whereas K19 and CD34 stained different cell populations in the upper and lower fragment, respectively.
CONCLUSION:
Duplicative surgery might represent a successful alternative for hair transplantation, because both portions are capable of regenerating a healthy hair. Moreover, our results suggest the possible presence of stem cells in both halves of the follicle.

In the light of all the overwhelming evidence on this topic, it is really absurd how few hair transplant surgeons are seriously pursuing this technique. Actual regeneration would be the holy grail of HT surgery and a win-win situation for both patients and doctors.

I really hope Dr Cole will be able to turn this into a marketable and viable solution for all hair loss sufferers...

Question about Acell liquid bandage

CITNews, is the Acell liquid bandage a possibility in a C2G session? I would think there would be a problem getting it to stay in place, as well as an issue with the Acell being able to penetrate the long hair surrounding the donor sites. Thoughts?

Question about Acell liquid bandage

"Why not just inject A-Cell and create new follicles? Why do surgery?"

The same reason you can't inject a liquefied Band-Aid into your hand and grow extra fingers. Acell is just a healing aid. The viable follicles still have to be there or come from somewhere else.

Medical research is expensive and has its risks. Most hair restoration physicians want to be on the safe side and let others do the research and incorporate only the safest tried and true procedures and medical products into their practice.

What Dr. Nigam and Gho claim is within the realm of possibility. IF I were able to do what they claim, I would find a Norwood 6 or perhaps even a 7 and give him his teenage head of hair back. I don't see those photos anywhere. Sure that would take a LOT of hair, but reliable hair doubling should be able to accomplish that.

Dr. Cole pointed out a problem with the animation on Dr. Gho's website. Notice how the "Needle" splits the three hair graft perfectly? Hair doesn't grow that way. You have curved follicles to deal with and three-hair follicular units forming every kind of triangular configuration imaginable. One would need a ridiculous number of extraction instruments to cover the near endless number of follicular configurations.

On the other hand, Gho may be presenting a conceptual representation of his technique to protect himself from other doctors copying his technique.
Still, If I could do what Nigam and Gho claim, I would document the transformation of a Norwood 6 or 7 to a full head of hair without donor scars.

The liquid bandage works well but is still in the development phase. The biggest challenge right now is making this practical as a patient option due to its high cost.
