Discuss this patient on our Hair Restoration Forum

This hair restoration patient is 52 years old and wanted to cover as much of the bald area as possible. I covered the front ?? and most of the crown. The area covered is about 150 sqcm and on average his density is 30-35 FU/sq.cm. The density could have been higher if we decided not to cover the crown. I do expect to see some more growth over the next four months.
His graft count is as follows:
1 Hair FU - 983 Hairs ??“ 983
2 Hair FU ??“ 2703 Hairs ??“ 5406
3 Hair FU - 856 Hairs ??“ 2568
4 Hair FU ??“ 102 Hairs - 408
Total FU - 4644 Total Hairs ??“ 9365

The total length of the strip was 26.5 cm long.
At its widest the strip was 2cm wide in the middle and at the temples the strip was 1.5cm wide. The strip dimensions was as follows:

10.5 cm long of 2.0 cm wide strip
9.5 cm long of 1.8 cm wide strip
7.5 cm long of 1.5 cm wide strip
