PATIENT # 108
Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 4600
Baldness Class: 5A
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip).
The patient is in his mid 40’s but looks older due to hair loss. We recommended finasteride and performed FUT of 4,600 FUs (1-1491, 2-2385, 3-724; 8,433 hairs) and distributed the grafts mostly to the front half, with some very light coverage to the crown.
We did not see him again until nearly five years later when he returned to discuss filling in the crown. He was sporting a youthful long hair style (although with significantly more graying!). He had not taken the finasteride but we recommended it again, especially with plans to do more grafting in the crown. Of note, he has baby fine hair and the result is more in line with what we see with 3500-4000 grafts in someone with normal hair.
