Hair Transplant Surgeon: Carlos K. Wesley, M.D.

Hair transplantation procedure to the crown with Propecia

Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 1933
Baldness Class: 2
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

At age 34, this hair restoration patient had already taken Propecia for 5 years. Although it slowed the progression of his hair loss in the vertex (crown) and midscalp, the effect of the medication was decreasing. A session of 1933 micrografts throughout his crown provided ample coverage as seen about 20 months postoperatively.

Coverage of this diffuse area of thinning also addressed the periphery of the crown (outer concentric circle) that will continue to thin in the future. While his coverage is markedly improved, the acute angles of hair in the crown may necessitate two sessions to have a dense vertex.
