Steve Gabel, MD – Portland, Seattle – 2098 Graft Crown Transplant
This 53-year-old gentleman started thinning years ago at the top and crown areas
of his scalp. He had tried medications without any significant growth.
transplanted 2098 grafts into the crown approximately 6 months ago. The series
of photographs show the scalp as he presented before any surgery or haircuts,
another photograph depicting the area of transplant showing his natural swirl
pattern with blue markings, and the 6-month preliminary results.
swirl pattern was created by following some the “wispy” natural hairs that he
had so I am able to make the slits in the natural direction and angle of his
native hair. At 6 months, the transplanted follicular unit grafts are growing
very well. He said that he did not shed that much after surgery and he has been
already cutting his hair regularly. Also, the video shows the close up of the
donor scar, which is thin and difficult to see even with his hair cut very
Overall the hair growth is excellent at this stage and we
anticipate that the number of hairs will continue to increase and his hair will
also thicken over time. He said he would come back in 3-month intervals to show
his growth over time.
