Hair transplant surgery photos with 3211 grafts and 6629 hairs

Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 3211
Total Hairs Transplanted: 6629
Baldness Class: 5
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This 34 year old hair restorationpatient has fine light brown-blond hair withaverage donor density of about 82 FU/sq.cm and an below average scalp laxity. I was able to remove a strip that was 1.5 cm wide by 26 cm long. That means I removed a total of 39 sq.cm. of donor hair. His hair transplant count was as follows:

· 694 one hair FU
· 1715 two hair FU
· 703 three hair FU
· 99 four hair FU
Total FU-3211, Total hairs- 6629


With this amount of hair I could cover the front  of the scalp but not the crown. I have included a 10 day post op photo to show the area covered in the transplant. He was not interested in covering the crown but has enough donor if he wishes to have the crown transplanted at a further date.
