#BAM Male FUT (3389 grafts): Carlos K. Wesley, M.D. (NYC & LA)

This 44-year-old man underwent a follicular unit transplantation (FUT) session with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley in which a total of 3389 grafts were placed.

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 his experience: no-shave requirement for optimal discretion, enhanced graft storage measures, and rigid patient safety standards.

As with all of Dr. Wesley’s patients, he was NOT required to cut his 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 his procedure.

The patient’s hair follicles were incubated in platelet rich plasma (PRP) throughout the duration of the procedure. This, combined with an ATP-containing storage solution has been shown toenhance survival of transplanted hairs.

The patient returned one year after his 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.
