Hair Transplant Surgeon: Paul V. Shapiro, M.D.

Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 2000
Baldness Class: 3
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This patient is already a Norwood Type 3 with his deep frontotemporal recession. It is important to take a conservative approach and place the 2000 FU grafts as if he was Norwood Type 5 or 6 which he is likely to become. That means not lowering the hairline and keeping the frontotemporal angle high.
