dr.rassman, hello. as a former patient i cannot give you enough praise for the corrective work you did on my scalp. my reason for writing is to ask a couple of questions. first, can my old punch style grafts, be redistributed to create a softer look? secondly, can my donor area which is according to you less than a 2 be used to soften and thicken my hairline. i still wear a hair system behind my frontal hairline about 2 inches back. i am afraid of my donor area being bald yet i want a softer look in front to disguise my system. i would stop wearing a hair system but i now have a medium sized bald spot on top and i don’t see a way of covering it up with a very small amount of donor hair left. dr. can you help me? maybe i can fly in to california and have a procedure done to correct my first 2 questions.
People who have depleted donor areas are very difficult to treat. Yes, you can redistribute hair from the old plugs that you received years ago. What you must do is define your problems and your goals, then prioritize them, then visit me or some other competent doctor who can address your problems. Without seeing how you look today, I can not reassess your situation with the new tools and techniques that are now available.
