Hair Transplant Surgeon: Dr. Timothy Carman

Surgical hair restoration procedure before and after pictures

Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 2375
Baldness Class: 5V
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This hair restoration patient is a gentleman in his early fifties who experienced a gradual thinning of the posterior frontal forelock and mid scalp over the last 25 years to the point where he refers to this area as the "barren wasteland" behind "this little mountain" (referring to the retained anterior frontal forelock seen). We placed a total of 2375 FU grafts during his hair transplant procedure  as follows: Ones: 800; Twos: 1434; Threes: 141. Note how we choose to recreate a new hairline just slightly in front of his current one: this is done so that, as he loses that hair over time, he doesn't develop a central defect which would certainly be quite noticeable. Here, at 5 months post op, he has about 50% of his grafts grown in.


Note: these results are at 5 months postoperative and this patient can look forward to more robust growth in the following months to come.
