Reparative Before and After Photos
Before and after excision of the entire frontal 6 rows of prior placed plug grafts, achieved through balloon tissue expansion. This is a very challenging case, in where Dr. Epstein placed three balloon tissue expanders to stretch out the normal scalp and forehead skin, permitting then the excision of a wide strip of scarred scalp and the subsequent dramatic improvement.
29 year old, underwent multiple prior procedures of unaesthetic minigrafts (containing two to five hairs) from 22 to 26 years of age. Was very disappointed with the poor direction of grafts, the significant scarring, and the overall unnatural appearance, that were not improved by another surgeon who attempted a repair by doing further grafting. Dr. Epstein performed a reparative procedure, using the technique of FUE punch removal, able to extract approximately 400 of the hairline grafts in a single procedure, which were then dissected down then replanted in a more natural direction and pattern. Shown is the result before and eight months after his procedure.
Before and after plastic surgery scar repair for an old donor site scar done elsewhere by strip. The scar was excised then the area closed in a plastic surgery fashion, resulting in a narrower scar that if desired can undergo transplants.
Body hair to scalp hair transplant procedure. Approximately 900 FUE grafts were taken from the chest and placed into the scalp. Patient had undergone multiple prior procedures by strip and essentially had no remaining scalp donor hairs so he came to Dr. Epstein for his expertise in these body hair procedures.
