Body Hair FUE NW6 Patient After Chemo Therapy, BHR Clinic (Hair Transplant)

posted by SL Homepage E-mail, Belgium, 07.12.2011, 22:08

Our patient initially came to us in 2007, he was a NW6/7 candidate with average scalp donor qualities and a larger than average surface area to cover; we made an initial assessment of 2 procedures to give maximum coverage, both FUT and scalp FUE combined. The first procedure was approx. 4500 FUT and 1000 FUE; due to the surface area this covered from hair line, frontal third and slightly into the mid section.

Unfortunately our patient was diagnosed with cancer shortly after his first procedure and had to undergo chemo therapy; this was obviously a telling time for him and he returned to us 8 months post HT op and after the therapy for an assessment. It was assessed that the HT was growing with even coverage, although he was 8 months post op due to the chemo therapy he had growth more like 4-5 months post op; also the donor hair was showing signs of miniaturisation so the recommendation was for he to wait at least a further year before any further surgery due to potential healing and trauma caused by the chemo reducing the yield and quality of growth.

With some understanding after beating cancer our patient wanted to have some normality in his life, although we suggested to wait he underwent a further procedure with another clinic , 3000-4000 grafts FUT, the result unfortunately was that the scalp donor miniaturised and lost density and the regrowth of the HT hair was weaker and miniaturised compared to the first procedure. This resulted in the scalp donor being depleted, the trauma caused massive miniaturisation to the extent it was in areas thinner than the recipient, the linear scar was visible as the hair would not grow over to conceal and areas of the recipient that had been treated were very thin in coverage or growth.

GOAL: Our patient's goal was/is to achieve maximum coverage using Body Hair, going relatively slowly to ensure best yield, to start from behind the first BHR procedure and rebuild the areas that have receded and those transplanted but resulted in weak growth. The first BH procedure was in January 2011, then August and November, firstly working to rebuild the hump behind the frontal third that connects the recipient to the sides then working back further each session.

From the pictures you can see the evolution from Pre OP, to the results of Post ops and after Chemo Therapy, to Beard Hair Repair; this is ongoing and we will update future ops as and when he proceeds with the goal to cover the recipient from hair line to crown, keeping the hair short so the hair blends well with his now donor area and at the same time minimise the look of the linear scar by aadding hair to it.
