Hair Transplant Sessions: 2
Grafts Implanted: 4980
Baldness Class: 7
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

Mr. Mishra was a 53 year old man with salt and pepper hair having Grade 7 baldness. His hair was thin in quality. He wanted a complete coverage of his total bald area. So we planned to do it in two phases.

Phase 1: Number of grafts - 4980 (scalp: 3500, 320 singles and rest were multiples; beard: 1480)

Area: Front and mid scalp

In the first phase we did 3500 grafts from his scalp donor and rest 1480 grafts were taken from his beard area. And we also kept in mind that we have to do the crown coverage in the later stage, and also kept in mind that he would always like to keep his beard as he has. So the results that we are showing here are after 6 months of the first procedure.

Phase 2: Number of grafts - 3000 (scalp: 2000; beard 1000)


Area: Crown 

The second procedure was done and another 2000 grafts were taken from the back and 1000 grafts were taken from the beard. So a total of 3000 grafts were done. The results of the second sitting is shown here after only 4 months and we are waiting for the full blown results. 

Here to note that with the right kind of instrumentation and expertise, the donor areas,  both the scalp and beard retain the cosmesis well and we can harvest the right amount of grafts required  to give a complete coverage of Grade VII baldness with right kind of acceptable cosmetic density.
