PATIENT # 52

Hair Transplant Sessions: 1

Grafts Implanted: 3168

Total Hairs Transplanted: 6177

Baldness Class: 4A 

Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip).

This hair restoration patient has type Norwood Class IV A hair loss and had a history of older minigrafts about 10 years ago. We performed 3,168 FU’s (6,177 hairs) during his hair transplant procedure. He came in for a 6 month check and showed good growth. This should continue to thicken up over the next 6 months. Some patients show slower growth but end up with excellent results as well so I try to get patients not to worry too much if they are “late bloomers”. The photo taken immediately after the graft placement shows a purplish color because of the dye we sometimes use in darker skinned patients to stain the sites.
