Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 1867
Baldness Class: 3
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This hair restoration patient had 1867 grafts to fill in the frontal zone.
We did not change his hair line location but refined its shape. To make it more natural, we built back the temples pointes (crucial factor in hair line design, especially when you are building low hair line in some patients).

The point I want to highlight in this patient is the flexibility he got for combing his hairs from left to right because of gain in volume.

In hair transplant surgery, we want to achieve a good illusion of coverage. Even though we may not maximize our focus in high density, gaining volume in the center part is a key element that could allow patient to get a better coverage. Patients will have the flexibility of playing with hairs in order to achieve a comb over effect. The new hairs may also serve as a support or base for products such as toppik to increase the illusion of coverage.

The goal in all of this is to achieve naturalness (respect hair angles and direction) and undetectability.
