#BAM Female Frontal Hair Fullness (1432 FUT grafts): Carlos K. Wesley, M.D. (NYC & LA)

This 59-year-old woman underwent a follicular unit transplantation (FUT) session with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley in which a total of 1432 grafts were placed. In addition, she was also using our Follicle Advantage Gummy found at our online marketplace.

We are thrilled that our surgical facility is considered amongst the world’s best. Aspects of our surgical approach can be viewed on our site’s Most Common Questions page. Three unique elements combined to help improve her experience: methods for optimal discretion, enhanced graft storage measures, and rigid patient safety standards.

As with all of Dr. Wesley’s patients, she was NOT required to trim her hair for the procedure. As a result, this patient was able to return comfortably to work and social activities within approximately 7-10 days of her procedure.

Her hair follicles were incubated in autologous (her own) platelet rich plasma (PRP) throughout the duration of the procedure. This, combined with an ATP-containing storage solution has been shown to enhance survival of transplanted hairs.

The patient returned two years after her procedure and images of the patient can be seen below. This link illustrates the timing of hair growth after surgery. Similar patient hair transformations with Dr. Wesley and his team may also be viewed.
