Hair Transplant Surgeon: Jerry E. Cooley, MD

Hair Transplant Sessions: 2
Grafts Implanted: 6617
Total Hairs Transplanted: 15417
Baldness Class: 5
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This patient is about 60 and has very fine hair. His favorable characteristics included salt and pepper hair, and a high proportion of three and four hair follicular units. I prescribed finasteride and on 05/17/07 he had 4, 060 FU grafts to the frontal half. On 10/31/07, he had 2, 557 FU grafts to the entire area, including the temples and crown. The high number of 3 and 4 hair grafts, which can sometimes be interpreted as two follicular units, allowed for good coverage over the entire scalp. For a patient with a fine hair, we generally keep these together as one graft. In this patient, keeping these together resulting in 15, 471 hairs from 6617 grafts (2.34 hairs/graft). For the patient with coarse hair, especially when doing the hairline, we may create two grafts (i.e. 1 and 2 hair grafts) instead.

His hair counts were as follows

2s 3065 6130
3s 2020 6060
4s 583 2332
