PATIENT # 126
Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 1500
Baldness Class: 2
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip).
This patient came to see me four years ago and is in his late 30’s. He had been on finasteride for many years. We performed FUT of 1500 grafts (3031 hairs) to strengthen the hairline and address the corners. He is shown at one year post op.
Given that he has been on finasteride almost 15 years, it is not surprising to see some gradual thinning. The medicine is still working and if he went off it, he would rather quickly catch up to where is genetics would have him be.
The other interesting thing about this case is the prominent cowlick at the hairline on the left. I try to blend in to an existing cowlick with the grafts and soften it.
