This patient is in his early 40’s and has frontal recession in a shallow NW3 pattern. We started him on finasteride before surgery and performed FUSS consisting of 2,241 grafts
The distribution of the grafts are as follows:
Single hair grafts - 580 or about 25% of the total graft count.
Double hair grafts - 1055 or 47%
Triple hair grafts - 521, 23%
Quad hair grafts - 85, 5%
The patient presented as an appropriate candidate for temple angle closure. Dr. Cooley worked in and around the existing hair and was careful to match the angle and direction of the native hair for the result you see below. The result is one year post.
Norwood class 3
The earliest stage of male hair loss. It is characterized by a deepening temporal recession.
