I had a prior chest transplant surgery of 2000 grafts. It was a really bad experience. My goals are:
1. Much more density
2. No spots or scars on my chest.
3. No curly transplanted hair (my chest hair is limp)
4. No gray hair transplanted
5. No incisions (a FUE procedure)
6. Abdomen hair/pubic hair as donor hair (crown/back head hair is thicker)
Please tell me: can you offer a solution according to my goals? How many grafts do I need? Thank you very much for your feedback.
Dear Larry - I am sorry for the poor results you have attained. As you are able to see in the many before and after photos in my website, my results in chest hair transplants are quite natural appearing, and free of any scarring, etc, with the occasional patient having a few small bumps.
I do believe Larry that I can provide you with the look you seek, but most likely only with the use of scalp hairs, for this is how I am able to achieve such nice results like I have on the over 50 patients on whom I have performed chest hair transplants.
There is a possibility that I can in fact use your abdomen hairs- however, this is a much less likely successful procedure.
My recommendations: consider putting your trust not just in me but in my many patient photos (and Jon from my office, who will be contacting you, can also put you in touch with a few of my actual patients to speak with) and let me get your procedure done correctly with 2500 to 3000 grafts, or alternatively, have a test procedure in which I can try both scalp as well as abdomen hairs, to see how well they grow out- and to regain your confidence.
