What you need to know (Hair Transplant)

posted by Dr. Cole, Atlanta, Ga, 15.06.2016, 07:16

I think it is very important to recognize that without Dr. Woods, FUE would be well behind where it is today. Dr. Woods put it on the map. We have to give him credit for this. Dr. Rassman was very negative about FUE. Sam Lam is not an expert or a resource on FUE. That's why i refused to participate in his book that includes many individuals who know very little about FUE. I consider his book essentially worthless.

As far as Arfy goes, he was a repair case and highly successful on that level. The surgery was done for free. What he is complaining about is body hair, which can be unsatisfactory. I advised him against this procedure, yet he elected to proceed. We can't guarantee body hair and we always advise patients of this. Most patients accept this risk without complaint and sometimes body hair works out very well. We just can't predict it. Arfy knew this and accepted the risk. I wish it had worked well for him, but at least he did not get worse. He got a little better, which is the most you can hope for in many body hair cases. The only consistent source of body hair is the beard, but we were not doing that due to concerns over scarring over 10 years ago. Still, what we offered at the time was cutting edge surgery that no one else in the world offered.

Many sell FUE today yet lack the skill set to do this surgery. Joe Tillman is right on this. People tend to jump on the band wagon of good procedures even when they lack the skills. Still, the potential for a better aesthetic donor area with FUE is much better than with any strip procedure. What is the real danger for the donor area today is the ARTAS. This thing can destroy a donor area in one pass and produce almost zero in results. So, what you have to do is choose a good FUE surgeon.
