✓ 24 years old, Diffuse hair loss pattern (Ludwig I), losing hair since the age of 22.
✓ Taking Minoxidil 5% and Finasteride 1mg since 3 months before the surgery.
✓ Medium caliber hair.
✓ Normal follicular units.
✓ High % of hair in telogen phase.
This young man came to my office to find a solution for his receding hairline and for a general thinning affecting the whole of his scalp.
In fact, since some months he had started noticing a loss on his hair mass and was having difficulty finding an adequate hair style.
First of all, I suggested him to start a therapy based on Minoxidil and Finasteride in order to prevent further hair loss and to increase the quality of his native hair.
Subsequently, we decided to perform an FUE procedure consisting in approximately 2000-2200 grafts with the aim of rebuilding his hairline and adding hair mass to the frontal and central parts of his scalp. It is interesting to notice the extremely satisfying ratio hair/graft (2.56), due to the high quantity of quadruple grafts that we were able to harvest.
Below you can see the patient's progress at the 1st, 4th and 12th post-op month mark. The procedure, combined to the usage of the medications, has proven to be a real success.
✓ 2074 grafts
✓ Technique: FUE
✓ FUE scoring and extractions executed with my WAW system, now widely used in the sphere of FUE. It consists of a very precise pedal that enables to control the movement of the punch, that I also designed myself. The main advantage is to reduce substantially the number of damaged and transected hair, thus to raise the quality of the procedure. The system is now used worldwide and several dozens of surgeons or centres are already using it.
✓ Incisions: 40-45/cm2
✓ Grafts Breakdown:
☞ 510 Single FUE grafts
☞ 328 Double FUE grafts
☞ 801 Triple FUE grafts
☞ 435 Quadruple FUE grafts
✓ Total number of Hair: 5309
✓ Average Hair/Graft: 2.56
