This is the case of a 32 year old with NW stage 6. He underwent a hair transplant FUE procedure on June 1st 2020. We had an extensive discussion about the goals and he was mainly interested in a natural look with an improved NW scale and so no crown work was done. His donor area is average with an average hair calibre. We decided to go for a higher number of grafts yet not adding any to the crown at this stage given his age and desires/expectations.
The surgical details are as follow:
Date: June 1st 2020
Total grafts: 4973 FUE grafts
Hairs/Graft avg: 2.14
Singles: 450 refined singles for the hairline
Meds: Finasteride 1 mg alternate days.
Punch used: 0.8 mm ( 4mm length) serrated punch
Recipient sites: 0.9 mm and 1.2 mm Sapphire blades.
