Baldness Class: 2
Hair Transplant Repair Work
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This patient is a 28-year-old male who we performed 1591 grafts to the frontal hairline 3.5 years ago. He initially had a hair transplant at another practice which had failed to deliver the desired result of a solid hairline. He felt many of the grafts did not grow, and that he had some irregularity to the hairline. Examination at the time revealed large spaces in the frontal hairline and poor density. It did appear that he had poor growth from the prior procedure. Additionally, there were several 2-hair grafts in the hairline which were giving an unnatural appearance.

We transplanted 1591 grafts into the very frontal hairline and frontal zone. The surgery was very meticulous as I did not want to disturb any existing hairs in the hairline at the same time packing the area with new follicular unit grafts. The surgery was highly successful and the patient has been extremely happy since.

He was recently in the Portland area and visited us. He has been on oral and topical medications to help minimize hair loss. At this point, I only recommended that he maintain his medical therapy as his hairline and overall scalp hair looks amazing. Next time he returns to Portland, he said he will visit the Gabel Center for an update.
