The photos below are of a patient who came to my office yesterday, now 11 months after his transplant of 2403 grafts. When he saw his before pictures, he asked me to cremate them because that man no longer existed. We had a great laugh together as he shared his own amazement of the transformation which he had not fully appreciated until he viewed those old photographs. The humor took another step as he put on the Groucho Marx mask that we bought to give to his grandson. It was one of those joyous experiences that I see day after day. For me, it’s the impact on peoples’ lives that really makes my day.
This patient is a Norwood Class 6 with salt & pepper, medium fine hair. “Before” on the left; “After” in the middle and on the right.
