Hair Transplant Surgeon: Thomas Chung Wai Nakatsui, MD

Hair restoration surgery to the crown before and after images

Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 990
Baldness Class: NA
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This is a hair restoration patient who had his crown done about 5-6 years ago and was very happy with the improvement. However, over the last 5 years, he has noticed some thinning around the edges of the transplant, particularly the right frontal edge and returned to me this past week for consideration of further transplantation to fill in the thinning areas. He was aware of this possibility prior to the first transplant.

His first transplant involved 276 single grafts, 520 double grafts, and 186 big grafts, for a total count of 990 grafts.

I think this case demonstrates that a very natural result can be obtained and that the patient must be made aware of the potential and likelihood of future hair loss before embarking on the first transplant.
