Our patient was computer savvy and did a lot of research and had a few consultations. There are different strategies depending on the patient’s ethnicity, type of hair, color of hair, thickness and density. Every patient has characteristics that are advantageous and disadvantageous. You must choose a doctor with the experience and talent to exploit your strengths and minimize the weaknesses. The benefits of a hair transplant for African American patient is the combination of lack of contrast between hair color and scalp color for a hair transplant for an African American patient.
I told our patient that, unlike any other doctor, you will walk out the door after your procedure knowing that it was impossible to get more hair. He had the MaxHarvest™ hair transplant which is unique to Dr. Bolton. Hair transplants for African American patients, when done right, can yield great results.
This patient had two previous procedures with another practice. He did not achieve natural or appealing hair density from those procedures. He was not happy with the lack of density, especially when you factor in the time and expense for his limited results.
Dr. Bolton was able to achieve double the results, of his previous two procedures, in one session, and reduce the scar from his donor area, for significantly less money. Maximum density was achieved by Dr. Bolton with his multiple follicular unit bundles. Most doctors refuse this technique because it limits their revenue when charging by the graft, making it impossible to achieve a hair transplant high density result for their patient. If you are looking for a hair transplant with a high density result, then Dr. Bolton is for you.
You might think Dr. Bolton didn’t do a lot for this young man but when you see the photos below, but you will see Rolando was well on his way to having extensive hair loss. Rolando was proactive and didn’t want to wait until his hair loss became more obvious. I have to rate this as one of the most incredible hair transplant hairline I’ve ever seen. The reasons are as follows:
1. Coarse wavy dark hair
2. Sharp recession of hair line
3. Patient is showing potential for considerable loss at a young age
4. Patient requests an aggressive hair transplant hairline
5. Patient is young
6. Patient has a light complexion
These are all factors that make for a difficult procedure if not in extremely capable and talented hands. The risk of error and poor judgement is common in these cases. Dr. Bolton and the patient knocked it out of the park on this result. There are doctors who are charging $30,000 per procedure who can’t touch this result. This case wins the honor for the most perfect hair transplant hairline.
This is a great example of a young man who has great potential for a fantastic result. An FUE hair transplant would make this type of result impossible for the patient. If you have a great donor, and a great doctor, this is what is possible. If you don’t have a great doctor, it doesn’t matter how great your donor is, you won’t get this result. Results like this are very rare. Most people can only dream about this result.
If a doctor wants to perform an FUE hair transplant, they will charge significantly more and waste your potential. This is a great example of a doctor who did everything in the patient’s best interest and got him incredible results. If you want significant results and you don’t want to have endless days of sitting in a chair plucking one hair at a time because you think you won’t have a scar, think again. The bad news is you will have a scar (similar to a plug scar) and you will have sparse results and spent many times the normal cost. FUE hair transplants are great for the doctor who is trying to double his revenue and not good for the patient who is trying to double his hair.
This is a 22 year old patient that wants to keep his anonymity. At 21, he was clearly going bald. At 22, he got his hair back after one procedure with Dr. Bolton’s maximum hair and density procedure. It would be hard to believe that there is the better hair transplant doctor anywhere else.
People are paying other doctors twice the money and getting minimal results. There is a huge segment of the patient population that receive bad results. They were either harmed by their doctor, got sparse results, unnatural results, bad scarring, or all the above. Yes, it is possible to get good results but what we have seen is that patients are paying much more and not getting the density that Dr. Bolton achieves for his patients.
If you are looking for the best hair transplant doctor in the world then Dr. Bolton is your hair restoration surgeon.
