Baldness Class: 2
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This is a patient who recently came in for follow-up a little over one year post op. He was a young man in his 20s who was concerned about hair loss in the temples and temple points. This is the type of patient that I am very cautious with as there is a risk that transplanting these areas can eventually lead to an unnatural appearance that cannot be fixed.

In this case, this patient was very concerned with his hair loss. He always wore a hat and avoided situations where he would have to take his hat off. It was affecting how he lived his life. He did have a lot of things going for him as there was no family history of significant hair loss and the rest of his hair was great with good density and coarseness of the hair throughout the rest of his scalp. After discussing the potential risks of doing this transplant in detail and after giving this considerable thought, he decided he wanted to proceed with the procedure.

We performed a transplant of 440 single grafts, 874 double grafts, and 217 big grafts, for a total count of 1531 grafts. He was extremely pleased with the results and remains comfortable with the risks.
