Hair restoration patient photos Norwood 5 using Finasteride

Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 3906
Baldness Class: 2
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This hair restoration was in his mid 20's and had evolving type IV hair loss. The donor area had below average hair counts, with alot of 1 and 2 hair follicular units. Finasteride was prescribed and a long term hair restoration plan was made that was based on the possibility of future hair loss. No attempt was made to super dense pack any area but more grafts were concentrated in the front center. 3,606 follicular units by the strip method was grafted, and this included 1s-1,521, 2s-1,690, and 3s-395; this yields an average hair/graft of 1.69, which is below average. Nevertheless, results were good and the patient is very pleased.
