Dr. Cole - Class VI Scalp/BHT Combo - Results Pics (Hair Transplant)

posted by Jessica E-mail, 21.08.2007, 20:27

Dr. Cole - Class VI Scalp/BHT Combo

This patient started with NW 6 class of hair loss. Dr. Cole transplanted over 12,500 grafts over three sessions. The body hair was mainly placed in the vertex of the crown, but also helped to thicken the frontal third. The combination of FIT scalp harvesting and Dr. Cole’s patented FIT farming technique helps to produce a donor result that allows the patient to wear his hair very short in the back, even after more than 5800 grafts are harvested. A full, thick head of hair is an unrealistic expectation for this patient as he had advanced hair loss and minimal scalp donor characteristics. However, we were able to offer him a medium to thin coverage through out with a natural appearance.

The totals are:
5843 scalp hair grafts
3559 BHT grafts
3077 FIT farming grafts

Techniques used:
FIT – Dr. Cole’s version of FUE. Individual follicular units are removed from the back of the scalp and transplanted to the area of hair loss.
BHT – FIT technique, but using body hair as the donor source. While BHT is a newer procedure with many factors still unknown, it is a useful tool in hair transplant to increase coverage and help to overcome scalp donor availability restrictions.
FIT/BHT Combo – The use of both FIT and BHT techniques to create more coverage than can be achieved with one technique alone. Typical Class VI baldness involves the loss of 18-20,000 follicular units. The available scalp donor typically only offers about 8,000 follicular units for harvesting. BHT can be used to extend the donor resources and cover larger areas of loss than ever before. The more predictable and better coverage of scalp hair is used for important areas such as the hairline and frontal third.
FIT Farming – Replacing a harvested scalp graft with a body hair graft into the donor. FIT farming is not required for normal FIT procedures; it is an option for those who want to push the numbers higher yet decrease the chance of over-harvesting. This patient had about 50% of his extracted scalp hair grafts replaced with body hair grafts via the FIT farming method. The body hair graft in the donor maintains circulation and pigmentation in the area of extraction and also provides some coverage.

Here are this patient’s most recent pictures. It has only been 6 months since his last procedure, so he still has some growing to do! He can look forward to more scalp hair growing in and maturing, and later his body hair will grow in. We will keep you updated as he sends us more pictures.

This patient’s evolution has been pretty well documented on our site, so for more pictures, discussion, history, and information, check out these links:
