Hair Transplants Leave Scars. Don’t Believe The Myths.

To be fair, this is an extreme example. Not disclosing that would be committing the same crime as FUE proponents. They are deceiving patients by taking a worst case scenario scar from FUT and implying that is a common occurrence and can be expected unless you choose their method.

The truth is; both surgeries leave scars, different types of scar though. One leaves a linear line, and the other a bunch of dots. If done properly, the line will never be seen if you keep your hair longer than 1/4 to 1/2 inches, depending on the type of hair you have. The same is true for FUE. If you cut your hair too short, the likelihood increases that the scar(s) can be seen. No ethical doctor will tell you that your scars will be undetectable, regardless of hair length.

FUE Hair Transplant Patient Flies In To Help Others

Johann was kind enough to help others avoid the experience he had prior to finding Dr. Bolton. He had two FUE procedures, in Malta, of 3000 grafts each procedure. 
 
The first procedure was to the front hair line of 3,000 grafts. This procedure lasted 10 hours. It looks like about 1,000 hairs grew.
 
FUE claims to be scar-less. It is not. It actually creates more scars and depletes the donor area to a greater degree. They claim you can go to work the next day. That is not true either. Actually you can, but you won't look normal and you will be in discomfort. Falsehood number three is the claim that it is not a surgical procedure. They break the skin with a metal punch similar to the old style plugs 40 years ago. They have to keep you numb for ten hours plus and some people even return the next day to do it again. Having anesthesia administered into your scalp for ten hours is not pleasant.
 
FUE is a low yield procedure and they charge more for that service and it is commonly done by folks who are not doctors. It is very possible that an FUE can be done entirely from start to finish by a technician and not a doctor.
 
Johann then repeated the FUE four months later to the crown area.  3,000 grafts again. Ten hours in the chair again and maybe 500 hairs grew?
 
Dr. Bolton harvested approximately 6,000 hairs in less then 10 minutes. The procedure from start to finish was about 3 hours.
 
Dr. Bolton would have gotten perhaps 7,000 or more hairs if Johann did not do the prior FUE procedures.
 
When you look at the strip that was taken out it has void areas (From the FUE) in a circular fashion where the grafts were punched out. These scars may not seem invasive but they go deep into the scalp and are fibrous in nature throughout the layers of the skin.

Which Type Of Hair Transplant Procedure Will You Opt For?

Don't Let This Happen To You!
 
There are many options for patients to choose from today when having a procedure.  Who to choose, and what method is best for you, can be daunting.
 
This is a patient who went elsewhere and is asking our opinion on what to do for his next procedure.
 
His goal was to get as much hair as possible in one procedure. He opted for a strip procedure and an FUE hair transplant.

As you can see, his donor area is now almost completely destroyed from the poor decision he made. The FUE hair transplant method involves taking hairs outside the safe area. That means he can lose the transplants in the future, as hair outside the safe zone is vulnerable to DHT, the hormone that causes hair loss.  Ethically, Dr. Bolton believes the only hairs that should be harvested are the ones from the safe zone.
 
Even with both of these methods combined, he was unable to achieve total coverage. It also took 3 days to get this yield.
 
His doctor advised him to do a strip and FUE to maximize the amount of hair in one procedure.
 
Here is the breakdown as to what he got.
 
The strip was 28 cm x 1 cm which yielded 809 one hair grafts, 1414 2 hair grafts, 287 3 hair grafts and zero 4 or 5 hair grafts.  The total was 2510 grafts yielding 4498 hairs according to his doctor. (Less then 2 hairs per graft) You cannot get much density with primarily 1 and two hair grafts behind the hair line.
 
Note that most doctors will tell you that you are getting one, two, three, four and five hair grafts when you do a procedure, when that isn't usually the case. What they don't tell you is that most are one and two and few if any 4 or 5 hair grafts. It is not uncommon that doctors will subdivide grafts to make more as the more they make the more they can charge. For example, a four hair graft is chopped in two and the revenue is doubled and you did not get more hair. What is interesting about this gentleman's two procedures is in the strip he didn't get any 4 or 5 hair grafts but in the FUE he did. That is proof his grafts were manipulated down to create a higher number and thus more revenue.
 
He then went in two days later to have a FUE procedure. He got 119 one hair grafts, 447 2 hair grafts, 230 3 hair grafts, 17 four hair grafts for a total of 813 grafts yielding 1771 hairs. His total cost was $18,000.
 
Our reply to this patient is that we feel it is better to come in for one procedure that can yield more hair in less time. It is not unusual for Dr. Bolton to get 10,000 hairs or more and finish the procedure from start to finish in less then 6 hours. There are many patients who can achieve full coverage from front to back. This patient could have gotten over 10,000 hairs in placed in less then 6 hours and achieved coverage from front to back for less money and less scarring.
 
Why take 28 cm x 1 cm when you can take 35- 40 cm x 1.5 or more cm?
 
Why average less then 2 hairs a graft when you can help a patient achieve greater density in one procedure using Bolton Bundles?
 
Please look through this blog and see the many patients who had advanced hair loss and in one procedure in less then 5 hours got extraordinary results.
 
Below is Dr. Bolton's Maxharvest Plus™ procedure of one of many patients who flew in from around the world to get the most hair possible in one procedure.
 
This patient got over 10,000 hairs in one procedure that took less then 5 hours and achieved total coverage from front to back.  Look through this blog to see final results of our patients with similar loss.
