PATIENT # 91
Hair Transplant Sessions: 2
Grafts Implanted: 8630
Baldness Class: 4A
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
This patient is in his mid 30’s. Initially, his goals were to restore the frontal zone including a conservative, natural hairline and to add a little density to the mid-scalp and crown. We did 4000 grafts by FUT and he is shown at 9 months. He was very happy and wanted to lower the hairline some more. We did a little over 2,500 grafts by FUT and he is shown 1 year later.
Although he could have stopped there, he wanted to do more, in fact as much as I thought was possible. Given this was his last procedure for any foreseeable time, we opted do FUE. We performed over 2,000 grafts, and grafted the fronto-temporal hairline, crown, and linear donor scar from FUT. Over the three procedures, we performed 8,630 grafts (16,792 hairs).
He is shown 1 year later. Given the contrast between his hair and scalp, I don’t think his donor area would have looked as good if all of the grafts had been taken by FUE.
