This is a patient who came in for follow-up approximately 6 months post-op. Prior to the transplant, he had a very large area of thinning extending from the hairline to the vertex and wanted to fill in the frontal 1/2 of his scalp. We performed a 3643 graft procedure to thicken up the frontal scalp. He received 1001 single grafts, 2134 double grafts, and 328 big grafts. He had a disproportionately small number of three hair grafts but we were still able to cover in the desired area.
He is very happy with his 6 month results and he should expect significant thickening over the next 6 months or so. In the future, he may fill in the rest of his scalp as well if he has sufficient laxity in his donor area.
