Hair Transplant Surgeon: Carlos K. Wesley, M.D.

56 year old patient with hair line thickening

Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 2160
Baldness Class: 3A
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This 56-year-old patient received 2160 FU throughout the frontal third of his scalp. Thickening the hairline and bringing to the temporal recessions to a level that they were at years ago was his stated goal. In addition, we rebuilt his temple anteriorly in order to provide a healthy "base" for the advanced hairline. This patient underwent a trichophytic closure due to the contrast between the color of his hair and his scalp. After pictures are taken 8 months postoperatively.

This use of a trichophytic closure ensures that the scar is barely visible at 8 months after hair transplant surgery.
