Hi guys, Been a lurker on here for a couple years and I appreciate everyone's posts and discussion. I wanted to document my journey here. First off, I had two transplants at the New England Center for Hair Restoration. I lived in Boston at the time so this place was close and had pretty good reviews. The first FUE was a complete failure in 2016 at the age of 31. The doctor agreed so I had a revision 10 months later, another FUE, in 2017 which was a little bit better but the results were subpar, especially for 2 attempts. I'm not saying this to knock the guys but just speaking from my own experience. I'll post photos below. All of this was done on a relatively small area, only my temples which were severely receded since i was around 20. The doctor there was Ryan Welter but, little did I know, his assistant Clark Tan performed both procedures. I moved to Jersey in 2017 and after reading threads on here I heard the two best doctors in NYC were Bernstein and Wesley. I had a consult with Wesley (about a 3 month wait) and he was the nicest guy, very informative and showed a lot of before and after photos which i liked, especially of people who had previous poor FUE's like mine. I was lucky and after a cancellation got a surgery a month later in mid October of 2018, at 33 years old. Dr. Wesley and his staff are top notch and amazing. I can say this as they were a night and day difference between the people in Massachusetts and I experienced those people twice. I'll put all the photos below. (Please keep in mind, I'm not a great photo taker and its really hard to photograph your own head and the back so forgive me for the poor quality). First off, here is my starting point pics before any surgery around Mid 2016: So here are pics after the first (and failed) FUE. The doctor never gave me an exact number of grafts he used. First he said he would do around 1500 but afterwards he said it was closer to 800 which was sketchy. Maybe he knew it was a bust and wanted to minimize the damage? Here's TP 1 at day 1 and 2: here's a bloody mess of the donor area at day 1: and here's pics from 3 weeks in: So this turned out to be crap. Here are a couple photos, albeit not great, after 9 months. The area looked like doll hairs and here's the starting point prior to the revision of the second FUE hair transplant. So another FUE was done at the same place. The results were a little better but still not good. Here are photos from the revision, the second FUE at day 1. donor bloody mess day 1 So after a year here are pics from the post op of the revision (the second FUE hair transplant). I took these prior to the Wesley FUE. It looked weird and I felt people were always looking at my hairline after the second FUE so that' why I felt it necessary to have a professional like Carlos Wesley fix my hairline. Here's some after the second revision and prior to the Wesley FUE (recipient and donor): So finally after all that failure and mess i decided to have my hairline fixed by carlos Wesley and here's the pics to document the progress. With the previous hair transplant's at the NE center for hair restoration I bled like a madman and the grafts kept popping out and the doctor had to keep jamming them back in. I believe this is in at least part of why the grafts never took and were damaged from the start. At Carlos Wesley's office there was almost no bleeding and the procedure was smoothless. Here are pics from day 0 up to day 10: Day 0 cruising through Manhattan to Chipotle then the hotel: Day 1 post op: Also, Wesley did an inverse donor extraction to take from areas that hadn't previously been harvested from the prior 2 procedures so thats why the donor area looks different that what you may expect: Here are a few pics from day 3-5: Here are some from day 8 post op: I will upload pics at 2 weeks and the 1month and monthly after that, which seems to make sense. Dr. Wesley also took out a couple hairs which were previously placed too low on my hairline and today at my 10 day follow up the nurses were amazed that there was no scar visible. I cannot say enough about Dr. Carlos Wesley and his staff as they are top notch and well worth the money as your hair is something you will look at on a daily basis.
