Hair Transplant Surgeon: Thomas Chung Wai Nakatsui, MD

Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 2815
Baldness Class: 5
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This hair transplant patient had extensive thinning and a very tight scalp. We decided to fill in the frontal 2/3 of the scalp and will consider performing more hair restoration to the back if he has sufficient laxity in the future. We were able to get 2714 grafts from him although the closure was very tight. We were able to get 1015 single grafts, 1517 double grafts, and 283 big grafts. It was interesting that he had so few 3 and 4 hair grafts and so many singles, but we took what we could get.
