PATIENT # 129

Hair Transplant Sessions: 1

Grafts Implanted: 1511

Baldness Class: 3 

Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).

This patient is in his late 40’s and was interested in frontal restoration. During the consultation we go over the differences between FUE and FUT. Most of my patients cannot shave and expect to be back to work in a week so they opt for strip FUT. This guy was an ideal candidate for FUE. He did not mind shaving and always wears his hair quite short and therefore wanted to avoid even a minimal linear scar. Furthermore, he lifts weights and works out alot, and did not want to worry about stretching his incision during the healing phase.

We performed FUE of 1,511 grafts (1-456, 2-667, 3-367, 4-21). We also performed PRP/ACell on the top, to provide some overall thickening, as well as to the FUE donor sites to enhance healing. He is shown pre op, immediate post op, one day post op, and 9 months post op.

He told me he can have his hair cut to 1/8 inch length, or 3mm, with no visibility to the FUE sites.
