Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)
A 25-year-old male hair restoration patient returned two years after over 2600 grafts were transplanted throughout the frontal half of his scalp. He met with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley because he was frustrated with the continued progression of his hair loss (especially in the front) despite taking Propecia.

Increased density (especially in young men) can be effectively achieved by increasing (a) the caliber of hair and (b) number of hairs per follicle in the treated recipient area. It does not necessary require packing in the maximum number of grafts into a concentrated area which may ultimately deplete the "supply" that a young man would have available for the future. These magnified before/after images of this patient's recipient area illustrate this. The greater caliber/higher hair per graft follicles are transplanted grafts.
You can also see (based on the pre-existing miniaturized hairs remaining in the recipient area) how thin his hair progression would have really left him at this stage. Crisis averted!
Here are various intra-operative photographs taken during this patient's surgical experience with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley.
