Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 2572
Baldness Class: 4A
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This is a patient who came in and was concerned about the progressive thinning of his hair. We decided to fill in the frontal scalp as it was this area that concerned him. He received 596 single grafts, 1440 double grafts, and 536 big grafts, for a total count of 2572 grafts. He is ecstatic about his results so far and his post op photos are about 11 months out. 

The funniest part of the story is that his brother also had a hair transplant somewhere else around the same time and received what sounds like a "long hair" transplant where the recipient site was not shaved and the grafted hairs were left long so that you could see the results of the transplant. The brother ribbed my patient about how good his "long hair" transplant looked compared to the short stubble of hair my patient had. 

In the end, though, my patient's hair has grown in substantially better than his brothers and you can imagine who is receiving the ribbing now!

FYI, the patient's preoperative photos show that his hair is dyed brown. We had asked him to do this so we could make the recipient sites without damaging his pre-existing, very, very white hair.
