Treatment plan:

- 1st procedure with 4000 follicular units to reshape the face and fill in the mid head/crown area
- 2nd procedure with 3500-4000 FU to achieve a higher density rate in the mid head area and cover up the complete crown area
- A medicinal therapy with finasteride to stabilize or prevent further hair loss

Performed procedure (October 4 2007):

A Follicular Unit Strip Transplantation with 4010 FU:

* 1350 single hair FU
* 2140 double hair FU
* 520 triple hair FU

Donor closing in 2mm lower edge Trichophytic Closure technique (double layer suture);
A combination of parallel (single units) and perpendicular incisions (double and triple units) in custom-sized blades technique (~Cutting Edge blades of 075mm – 1,05mm);
Dense packing technique with a density of 60 FU/cm² in hair line and feather zone (single units), a density of 30-50 FU/cm² in density zone (double units) and a density of 20 FU/cm² in the crown area (triple units).

The patient postponed his second procedure until summer 2009 because he was tremendously happy with the result of the first procedure.
