Hair Transplant Surgeon: Robert M. Bernstein, M.D., F.A.A.D.

Hair transplant patient of Robert M. Bernstein

Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 2336
Baldness Class: 6
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

Bernstein Medical - Center for Hair Restoration patient UAR is a Norwood Class 6 with slightly wavy, black hair and a donor density of 1.5 hairs/mm2. He had one hair transplant consisting of 2,336 follicular unit grafts. Photos were taken before and then one year after the hair restoration.

The patient had 2,336 follicular unit grafts placed over an area of approximately 150cm2; therefore, the average density is just under 16 grafts per cm2. The reason why the patient’s transplant looks so full is first, because he has wonderful hair characteristics — i.e. dark, wavy, coarse hair on dark skin — and second, I forward weighted the hair transplant so that in the frontal forelock (an area of about 50cm) I placed 1,250 grafts giving a density of 25 follicular units/cm2. The other 1,086 grafts were placed in the remaining 100cm2. Another trick that I use to give the appearance of more fullness is to place the larger follicular units (those containing 3- and 4- hairs) in the central-forelock area.
