Baldness Class: 3A
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This 30 year old male hair restoration patient has medium caliber, dark brown hair. He had an average donor density of about 85FU/sq.cm and an average scalp laxity. Our plan was to cover only the front 1/3 of scalp with 2,000 to 2,500 FU. Because he was only 30 with a strong family history of hair loss we were trying to get good coverage with a density of 30-35 FU/sq./cm. He is not a candidate for denser packing because he does have the potential for more hair loss and may become a Norwood type 6 by family history. I also kept the hairline above the wispy widow peak he had. He wanted a more rounded hairline and he most likely will lose that hair in the future. Also, if I lowered the hairline and he progressed to a Norwood type 6, he may not have enough donor to cover the front two thirds of his scalp in the future. He started Propecia at the time of the hair transplant. He responded well to Propecia and you can see the increase density behind where I did the transplant. His hair count was as follows:

∑ 512 one hair FU
∑ 1405 two hair FU
∑ 393 three hair FU
∑ 1 four hair FU
Total FU-2311, Total hairs- 4595
