Ryan is one of our world-famous patients with over 10 million views on his hair transplant video on our YouTube channel.
You can see it for yourself here:
Ryan has allowed us to document his case from the beginning to the end to give anyone considering a hair transplant a great understanding of how it works and what to expect.
Planning The Goal
Immediately After The Procedure
Dr. Bolton was able to harvest a 31 cm x 1 cm strip of tissue containing approximately 6,500 hairs. Please note that micro grafts (1 hair grafts) are placed in the frontal hair line. Follicular units of 2 and 3 hairs are behind the frontal hair line. Finally, behind the follicular units, Dr. Bolton will combine follicular units into his multiple units grafts, thus achieving at least twice the density of the standard follicular unit procedure which averages typically two hairs per graft.
Please note that you can barely see the suture line below the wet hair.
When Dr. Bolton places the recipient sites into the crown, he will mimic the way the hair originally grew. Hair in the crown, has a unique swirl to its design. You have to recreate this pattern in order to give the patient a natural result.
3 Days After Procedure
6 Days After Procedure
10 Day Suture Removal
The newly implanted hair will become dormant for the first few months and then proceed to grow in normally.
What you see here is a patient who is willing to chart his progress every month. At four months, you can see a definite change from where he started. You see improvement in the frontal hair line, especially, in the corners where, previously, there was no hair. You can see the crown is starting to fill in, too. The suture line is absolutely undetectable, even though, in some pictures he is wearing his hair with a 2 blade or about 1/4 to 1/2 inch in length. We are very excited for our patient as he restores his youthfulness and good looks.
