Discuss this patient on our Hair Restoration Froum

This 69 year old hair restoration patient never had a previous hair transplant. He has very thin curly hair, which is a positive factor.
The density is excellent, with 93 FU per cm?? and a theoretical amount of 1.88 hair per graft. The strip measured 24.5 cm *1.5 cm so 36.75 cm??.

So we should have 3655 grafts and 6886 hairs. Finally, we reached 3150 grafts for 7050 hair, so 2.24 hair per graft (725 FU1, 1241 FU2, 893 FU3, 291 FU4).

This shows that, contrary to a widespread practice, we do not subdivide our follicles but we used a couple on the same graft 2 very close FU's.

Thanks to the pairing technique there is a higher proportion of FU2, FU3 and FU4 than on the actual donor zone. The advantage is that we give a better density by using richer grafts, and the cost of the surgery is reduced for the patient.

The result was already very promising after three months, but it has improved after 6 months. After one year, it became very natural.

This is a good illustration of the gradual evolution of hair texture, in fact the hair transplanted become thicker months after months.
As the vertex was not covered, the patient wants a second hair transplant. In my own opinion, it is not essential. The trichophytic closure gave a very discreet result.
