VIDEO MEGA-transformation 3 stage flap repair by Dr. Lindsey explained in detail

In this video I'll go through how we repaired a man who had been devastated by a failed juri flap in the 80s....and who wore a hat for 30 years. I'll go though the sequence of his procedures and he talks in a short clip about the experience.


Some of you guys may recall this fellow's progress. What a great guy and what a challenging problem.

VIDEO Dr. Lindsey 2 cases on hairpiece wearer

Some of you may recall this guy's case. Wendy and I discuss the progress he's had with 2 cases, and he looks awesome. And yes..he has CVG and still grew!

VIDEO Dr. Lindsey 5 years combo FUE/MFUE

Some of you may recall this guy. He's been with me for years. Hair greed struck again so we're doing another MFUE. The video shows where we started...BALD, and where we're currently at...good coverage. But as you will see, he's constantly wanting "just a little more".

Dr. Lindsey 6 months out on female frontal VIDEO

Here's a brief update on a 60 year old lady with very fine hairs who had no frontal hairline. We did 1800 grafts on her last fall and she did well. The only real issue we had was that about a month out, when she started shedding...she used so much hair spray and concealer that she got either contact dermatitis of the scalp or an actual bout of cellulitis. We treated her with antibiotics and had her stop all the applicants and she turned around pretty quickly. I always worry about that altering growth but she seems on track now AND commented that she has enough hairs that she's no longer self concious about her hairline. Just wait another 6 months!

Dr. Lindsey Video 9 years out from frontal case

So this guy came by, now almost 9 years out. I put up some pics of him that he'd emailed in (2 year old pics) recently, and some astute viewers commented he had concealer. So he drove by DC on our recent holiday and sure enough, he wears concealer, but admits its mainly as he has fine hair everywhere and likes a short haircut....and needs to cover his white scalp WITHOUT growing longer hair. 

Take a look at the short video which includes where we started. Although he's aged 9 years, and is on meds..with his family, I'm not certain we won't see him in the future.

Lastly, listen that his wife didn't know about the HT until well after they were married.

Dr. Lindsey 14 months out from repair of FUE with MFUE

Some of you guys may recall this fellow. He is a muscular young man who had a frontal FUE by a very reputable FUE doctor but simply had lower density than he wanted. Now he has decent hair, but as I've discussed many times, FUE stresses the roots in an unpredictable way. AND he likes to have a very short hairline...so I completely GET why he did FUE. But he wanted more density and strip was out, due to his hairstyle requirements. So we did an MFUE 14 months ago and he walked in yesterday. His hairline looks great, although like a lot of perfectionists...he's sure he'll want more hair down the road. I advised him to sit tight and quit looking in the mirror so much. He's local so hopefully we'll see him yearly for followup. He is not on any meds.

Dr. Lindsey adding density to FUE with strip case

Here's ANOTHER lower yield FUE case, this time, performed by a VERY competent FUE doctor that we bolstered with a small strip case. The video goes into a bunch of issues, including FUE vs Strip, cleaning and smoking, Color contrast, expectation management, and a short video of me running a comb through the result at just under a year.

I've put up a bunch of these this month....don't get me wrong FUE has its place. Many of you may remember I did and FUE on my son....but the false advertising of scarless surgery with the same results as strip, that I see and hear almost every day..is wrong. This guy had a fine FUE result...probably comparable to what I'd would have accomplished with fue on him....it just wasn't enough. Now maybe the original doctor told him what I'd tell him...that he'd want a second case or it wouldn't maybe be enough, but the stress to the roots simply doesn't allow FUE to equal strip. And most doctors are not as blunt about stuff like this as I am...hence so many repairs of this issue in the past 2 years (with a bunch being by well known FUE doctors).

Bottom line...make sure you talk about the pros and cons of all surgical issues PREOP with your doctor and make the decision that is best for you.

Dr. Lindsey Video 13 months out from MFUE repair of low density FUE

This fellow is now 13 months out from us doing an MFUE to repair his low density FUE, which was done by a perfectly competent FUE doctor. I explain why I think he got low yield from his FUE (skinny roots don't like the FUE stress), discuss his MFUE scarring (which went from good to bad back to pretty good), and show that even in a packed hairline...guys with fine hairs and significant color contrast still have fine hair!

Video Dr. Lindsey MFUE female temple/sideburn at 18 months

Some of you guys may recall her original video and here's an update. She's a mid 30s female who had very little hair on her right temple/sideburn region that had MFUE 18 months ago. Wendy ran into her last weekend and she stopped by yesterday looking great.

Dr. Lindsey 6 month MFUE eyebrow repair video

Here's an update on our lady who was in a car wreck and lost the central portion of her right eyebrow. She's growing some already, will peak in another year, and may yet need extra hair. Like most females (recall I've done 3900 facelifts) its virtually impossible to get these ladies to come in without makeup. At a year, I'll make her wash it all off, but today she has "school and kid duties" and won't wash off her makeup.


The video includes her 3 month update and the video of the entire surgery for those who missed it originally.

Dr. Lindsey Plug repair at 18 months

Here's an update on a bushy haired 60 year old that we did a plug repair on 18 months ago. He looks good, better in person than either the videos or pictures AND we're almost certainly going to do a 2nd case to work toward his crown late spring.

The video shows him now, and if you keep watching, shows him at 12 months and goes into my philosophy on plug repair.

Video Dr. Lindsey Female frontal at 6 months

This nice lady from out of our area sent in some pics of good growth at 6 months. We did the same case a few years ago on her niece. She likely will spin by sometime this spring and we'll get a picture/video in person to add to this. 


At 6 months she looks fantastic and will only get better. In the video I talk a bit about my reservations about female HT...in that its critical to discuss expectation management BEFORE the patient signs up. Its pretty easy to make most men satisfied or really happy. BUT females need to know the limitation of their donor region and that there is no way to make MOST females with female MPB look like the ladies on the cover of the supermarket tabloids. Many of my competitors apparently fail to discuss that as we see an angry female patient from somewhere else about once every 3 weeks.
