PATIENT'S DETAILS

 55 years old, with a hair loss history in his family (father and paternal grandfather).

 In 1996, he had two FUT procedures done in another clinic, +/- 1000 grafts transplanted.

 No medications.

 Medium hair.

 Normal follicular units.

 Low % of hair in telogen phase.

 

RECOMMENDED TREATMENT

This 55-year-old gentleman came to my office to correct his poor, previous FUT procedures, undergone in 1996(at the age of 33). Since then, he was forced to live with pluggy, sparse and unnatural results, as can be seen in the preoperative pictures.

Since he wished to cover all the thinning areas - other than correct his hairline and anterior area as a priority - also for this patient I felt that a combo FUT + FUE was the best way to proceed in order to maximize his donor resources. In fact, thanks to the combination of the two techniques, I would have been able to correct the existing FUT scars - by including them in the new strip - and enhance the amount of available grafts via the complementary FUE.

The patient has undergone the surgery in March 2018, when he received 5527 grafts in two consecutive days. The patient has recently come back for a check-up consultation and is enthusiastic about the results achieved so far (7 months and a half after the surgery). His hairline is now very natural and other areas show aremarkable increase in density. During the upcoming months we expect the results to further improve, especially regarding hair density and texture, as the hair matures. As usual, we'll not hesitate to update this thread as soon as new material will be available.

 

SURGERY DETAILS

 5527 grafts

 Technique: Combo FUT (3396 FUs) + FUE (2131 FUs)

 FUE scoring and extractions executed with my WAW FUE System, now widely used in the sphere of FUE. It consists of a very precise pedal that enables to control the movement of the punch, that I also designed myself. The main advantage is to reduce substantially the number of damaged and transected hair, thus to raise the quality of the procedure. The system is now used worldwide and several dozens of surgeons or centres are already using it.

 Incisions: 40/45 cm2

 Grafts Breakdown:

- 481 Single FUT    +   85 Single FUE                           566 Single grafts

- 2325 Double FUT  +   1231 Double FUE grafts       = 3556 Double grafts

- 572 Triple FUT    +   669 Triple FUE grafts               1241 Triple grafts

- 18 Quad. FUT     +   146 Quad. FUE grafts               164 Quadruple grafts

 Total number of Hair: 6919 (FUT) + 5138 (FUE)  =  12057
