Hair Transplant Sessions: 2
Grafts Implanted: 3585
Baldness Class: 5
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

This young patient, 29 years old of age , Norwood 5 in hair loss scale , with a strong family history of baldness came to see us to get full coverage from front to back .
Such surgery will require about 5000 to 6000 grafts .Because of the limitations of the usual donor area in FIT/FUE, we advised him to do it in two parts .During the first surgery, we will focus on the frontal zone and later on, in one year, we will address the back or vertex.

Because of his hair loss stage and the family history, we recommended him to follow our medical therapy protocol; it is a tritherapy based on combination of anti DHT (androgen modulator) plus anagen stimulators.

In this specific case, we only proposed anagen stimulators (the patient was concerned with the possible side effects of anti DHT):

1. LED therapy with the TRIWINGS
2. Help Hair vitamins and proteins
3. Rogaine foam once a day

Medical therapy purposes are to slow down hair loss progression, to improve hair quality characteristics (caliber and pigmentation) and in some cases to regrow hairs.
In this patient, we had a very good response and we postpone the next intervention in the vertex for later .Being on therapy allows him to avoid a second surgery now.
