This 45-year-old gentleman had a hair loss pattern similar to a class 4v on the Hamilton Norwood hair loss scale.
His goal was to rebuild his hairline and add density to the frontal 1/2 of his scalp. After establishing his medical history and understanding the progression of his hair loss, I diagnosed his condition as Androgenetic Alopecia (male pattern baldness), ruling out any other possible dermatological or medical conditions which can cause hair loss. The patient’s goal was well suited to his needs and therefore I planned the surgery accordingly.
I wanted to reconstruct a hairline that would be suitable for him as he continued to age. A total of 2,663 grafts were used. I used a significant amount of single hair follicular units which allowed me to create a very natural hairline. This action will allow him to comb his hair without anyone detecting that he has had anything done. These are his results 1-year post-op. Patient is extremely happy and has scheduled a second procedure to have his crown filled in.

Norwood class 4
Characterized by further frontal hair loss and enlargement of vertex, but there is still a solid band of hair across the top (mid-scalp) separating front and vertex.
