Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 1053
Baldness Class: 3
Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)
This 47 year old male presented to us around a year ago and wanted the frontal shelf (front 40% of the scalp) filled in to help frame his face. He underwent a first session of 1053 grafts, consisting of 753 FU's and 300 DFU's (double follicular unit grafts of 4-5 hairs each). The "after" photos are from one year after the surgery. He had a second session that day of similar size to add to the density.
He was initially biopsied, to make sure that the hair loss process was typical hereditary androgenetic alopecia, and not from an autoimmune cause such as alopecia areata or lichen planopilaris. The biopsy confirmed that it was ordinary hereditary male pattern baldness and so we proceeded.
This is an example of how blending different size grafts can enable the hair surgeon to make a big difference without having the patient spend a lot of money. The attribute I like the most about using MFU grafts is that they block light better than scattered FU grafts used exclusively.
