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

Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 2460
Baldness Class: 3
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

Here is a patient who is Norwood type III. His frontal tuft area and behind it still have a lot of hair. He is a patient in which I could have cut or not cut his hair short. Cutting the hair short allowed me to place the hair closer in the frontal tuft area.

My goal was to get 2,500 FU's. If he would not have let me cut his hair I would have lowered my goal to 2,000 FU's.
