Hair Transplant Surgeon:
Dr. Ricardo Mejia
Hair Transplant Sessions: 2
Grafts Implanted: 3698
Baldness Class: 2
Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)
Final Update 5384 grafts over 3 procedures
Goals: Patient desired more coverage over density ; Started in 2004 focusing on frontal third area and progressing further back with added density. Recommended focusing majority in frontal area with some limited coverage in the crown area.
Limitations: Fine Caliber hair. Patient advised density harder to achieve with finer caliber hairs. Average donor density, tight scalp limited amount that can be done per surgery. Limited budget required staged procedure. Calculated area covered = 174 cm sq
Results: Patient Comments "Exceeded my expectations Very Happy" Achieved cosmetic density with an average of approx 31 grafts /cm2.
Problems/Bias: Amateur photographer with inconsistent lighting and backgrounds.
These results show photos of the patient only 3 months after his hair transplant from 3 procedures totally 5384 grafts. Since 3 months is far too early to see results of the third procedure the results shown are that of 3698 grafts over 2 hair transplant procedures.
