Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

Unfortunately he had two bad hair transplants in Spain, in 2003. 

His grafts are too big, which gives a bad aspect as he has thick hair.
On the pictures with shaved hair, we can see that the grafts are placed very deeply inside the skin so it looks like a crater.
The scar on the donor area is wide so I reduced it during the surgery. I spoke with the patient before the surgery and we defined the best strategy to adopt, he wanted to reach a high number of grafts even if we could not reduce completely the scar.
Then we removed the biggest grafts on the anterior part using some micro punches via the FUE technique. Thanks to a good orientation of the new grafts placed I could leave some old grafts on that area.

Our aim was to reach at least 2500 grafts.
At the end we had 2575 fu for 5243 hair.

594 singles
1391 doubles
497 triples
89 with 4 hair
4 with 5 hair.


The grafts were placed into 2340 incisions (pairing of 200 grafts)
The anterior line has been voluntary left fuzzy, and not very dense because of the thickness of the hair.
A dozen of big grafts were removed, and the holes of the punches were not sutured.

The result is very natural, and the patient is very satisfied. We still have a little pluggy aspect on the right profile so we are planning another 300 grafts FUE surgery so to perfect the result by removing some old grafts and we will add some density on the temples with thin hair.

I made a better scar but there is still a little enlargement where the scar was widen. Probably we will correct it with the FUE technique as well.

Finally, this is a good example of a correction that can give some hope to people who had a bad HT.
