PATIENT'S DETAILS

 ✓ 33 years old, Diffuse hair loss pattern (Ludwig II), losing hair since the age of 23, with a hair loss history in his family (father NW VI).

 ✓ Started taking Minoxidil 5% since 1 month before the surgery.

 ✓ Medium caliber hair.

 ✓ Normal follicular units.

 ✓ Normal % of hair in telogen phase.

 

RECOMMENDED TREATMENT

 

This 33-year-old patient presented a diffuse thinning affecting the whole of his scalp.

 

Despite that, he is a very good candidate for a hair transplant procedure: his hair is slightly curly and his donor area is excellent. Moreover, he had started taking Minoxidil 5% since 3 months before the surgery - even though the medication turned out to be not very effective for the patient.

 We agreed upon performing an FUT procedure and the patient accepted to shave the whole recipient area, which allowed for a perfect work. In this first session, we decided to focus on the frontal area and midscalp restoration, leaving the vertex untouched at this stage. The procedure was carried out in June 2017, when he received 3556 FUT grafts.

 As you can see in the pictures below, the patient has experienced a quite fast regrowth, since at the 7th post-op month mark the change in his look was already apparent.

 The patient will come back for his second session next month of April. His second procedure will consist in a combo FUT + FUE during two consecutive days with the aim of covering the vertex area. We will not hesitate to share with you the pictures of his second surgery as soon as they will be available.
