On April, 2012 Clinic TALIZI team has accomplished surgery of unique volume - 9688 follicular units (grafts) transplantation in single, 11 hour FUT session. This is an absolute world record.
Any record is a result of tremendous preparation, big work, experience, and, of course, it partly depends on a very important thing - lucky circumstance! In this case the unlimited abilities of TALIZI medical staff has been coincided with remarkable resource of a donor zone of the patient. Having lost several dozen kilograms of excess weight, the 42-year-old patient acquired unusual laxity of the scalp which allowed surgeons to cut out a huge rag of skin without getting an excessive tension in a donor area, and to transplant record number of grafts - up to 10,000 grafts in a single session!
Nevertheless, no record can be a goal in itself, especially, in medicine. The key indicator is the result. So, they all along with the patient now are focused on the result.
According the fact that surgeries of such big scale are themselves more traumatic we supposed the result to be prolonged. The patient also was ready for a long wait. The reality, nevertheless, has exceeded our expectations! Only half a year has passed, but we are already ready to show you the intermediate results of this unique hair transplant surgery!
Photos were taken before surgery and immediately after the completion of the hair transplant. Use of an advanced technique for creating recipient sites in a recipient zone allowed them to reach a transplant of such density. And the unique technique of anesthetization gave a chance for the patient to avoid any sense of pain not only during the surgery, but also during the postsurgical period.
Usually, during the first 2-4 weeks patient loses about 80 % of transplanted hairs, but in the case of our champion, obviously, this rate was much lower. The fact is evident.
The linear scaring in donor zone for this period of time is noticeable and can be distinguished under such short hair cut, but as soon as the hairs will start regrowing in the scar area it will get absolutely unnoticeable under casual haircut.
Usually, between the periods of II-IV months the regrowth process of the transplanted follicles begins. Sometimes this process is followed by the skin irritation. Small pimples may appear in recipient area – areas where the regrowth process is going on. Patient had a haircut.
6 month usually is period of time when we get 50-60 % of the final results. Since all processes in our patient proceeded quicker, we already see more complete results, nevertheless, it is too early to talk about the final results, but it is difficult to disagree that we see an absolutely different person with hair.
We contacted the patient and asked him to estimate the results in a few words. Here is what he told us:
"The result is just excellent! My appearance has absolutely changed! Already, it is difficult for me to imagine my head without hair! Many friends, who haven’t had the possibility to see me often, simply don’t recognize me at meetings. Though you call these results intermediate, I believe it is already remarkable. I have seen the photos of patients, and doctors told me that the results would be good, but, frankly speaking, I wasn’t expecting such a result! Now I look as good as I looked 20 years ago. I understand how natural I look now and how unnatural I looked when I was bald. My wish to your readers is - don’t give up, always aim to achieve the maximum, and Talizi will provide the possibility for it!"
