Hi Dr. Epstein,
I have had a couple of procedures with you, primarily correction, camouflage, and reduction of large 4/5 mm grafts and mini grafts. You removed parts of the larger grafts using a punch and added 700-800 FUI to the hairline area. It did help, but I still have too many large grafts in the hairline and the frontal part of my skull and want to get as close to natural as possible. I had previous DR’s try to camouflage with additional hair also, and I am convinced that hiding the grafts with more hair is just doing exactly that, hiding the problem.
I have been researching graft reduction and angle correction on line and some Dr’s (including Dr. Cole in Atlanta) use FUE to remove the appropriate number of follicles out of the offending grafts and redistribute. They claim that they can thin the grafts to a natural density, reduce or correct mis-angles, and also reduces ridging that resulted from the earlier grafts.
Do you do this type of procedure? What are your opinions about it?
