Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 2917
Baldness Class: 5
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This 37 year old hair restoration patient presented with Norwood Class 5 Male Pattern Baldness in May of 2012, requesting surgical hair restoration. We discussed several options but because of his complexion, hair color and coarseness, we carefully chose a conservative design consisting of #1000 densely packed single hair grafts to the hairline and #1917 follicular units more posterior. The results shown are at 10 months. The final, tightly cropped photo (as well as the intra operative and marked photos) illustrate a recreated, natural, blended hairline-the result of both preserving his native frontal forelock as well as carefully supplementing it with ultra fine grafts.
