This patient in his early 60’s had prior hair transplant surgeries over 10 years ago by another clinic. He had several things going against him – one main reason being his donor supply looked pretty tapped out, not to mention he has less than average donor density. Dr. Ron Shapiro cleaned up the previous donor scar and tried to harvest as much donor hair as possible. The strip size was 1.2cm width x 31cm length. Given the size of the donor strip, there should have been around 3000+ grafts on an average patient. This patient received 1523 grafts instead. The hair count also indicates he has many single hairs. He has more donor hairs available; however, it’ll have to be saved for another procedure. This patient is thrilled at the improvement made so far. He feels this last session has made the most difference compared to his previous surgeries. He is currently 8 months post op so he has more thickening to look forward to.
