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

Hair Transplant Sessions: 2
Grafts Implanted: 4769
Total Hairs Transplanted: 9541
Baldness Class: 6
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This patient had tremendous growth at 6 months from his first surgery. The ISHRS board members hand selected this case to be showcased in their educational infomercial to be used for the general public about hair restoration. By the time the event came around, this patient was at 9 months post op participated in a video interview in Orlando in March of 2008. SMG was also asked to do a live surgery demo on a new patient for the same video. 


Second Session: June 26, 2008 – 1835 Grafts/3605 Hairs

A second session was planned from the beginning to address his crown and to lower his hairline. I believe he is in the process of creating a weblog so he’ll be able to relay himself what restoring his hair with SMG has meant to him.
