This patient is a 38-year-old male who desired to thicken and restore the hair in the crown area of the scalp. Although he still had a small amount of small, vellus hair, his main concern was to increase the density with thicker, terminal hairs.
The patient had 1823 follicular unit grafts placed in the crown. We utilized the FUE harvest method using a 0.80 hybrid punch system. The photographs show the results at 15 months after the procedure which demonstrates excellent density and coverage of the crown region. His results are accentuated by the fact that he keeps his hair longer adding additional coverage through increased volume of hair. He continues to stay on medical therapy to help maintain his natural hair density.
