Dr. Wong/5005 Grafts/One Session/Strip (Hair Transplant)

posted by 2sar, 06.11.2008, 20:03


This is a question I get from time to time. Fact of the matter is that few
of our patients are shown with highlights or color changing of any sort.
There are a few, like myself, Futzyhead and a couple of others but we are
far into the minority.

For this case specifically, and many more like him, the color difference
can be due to a few issues. First, it's not really a color difference as
much as it is a "shade" difference. Both before and after of this patient
shows that they hair is brown. In the before, it is a darker brown, while
the after is more of a medium brown.

What I know for a fact is that the befores were taken at 6:15 a.m. because
that is when Dr. Wong starts his day. The sun is not up at this time of the
day. The afters were taken at about 3 p.m. where there is much more ambient
light throughout the clinic. This is the number one reason why you will
see slight shade differences between before and after. We've also gone
through a couple of different cameras over the years and each camera will
have a slightly different tonal interpretation.

That's the thing about our pics. We don't modify them in any way except to
resize them. We do not color match from before/after. We do not use a flash
which makes hairline density appear to be twice what it is in reality. We
do not use makeup or filler. We want you to see all the details that can be
seen without actually being in front of the patient yourself. That's why we
are still the only clinic to use a HD camera for our videos and we give you
the option of viewing our HD video FULL SCREEN.

Anyway, hope this explains some things for you. Glad you like the result.


Thanks for your clarifications.

Just wanted to be very clear on this one (as this would help me to take a decision about my HT):

Does the hair color and the texture of the transplanted hairs match with the native hairs? If NOT how much they differ?

PS: I always liked results from H&W. No doubt about that :)
