Baldness Class: 5
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

FUT performed on a 36 year old Caucasian male with:


- NW V Class N
- Donor density of 80-90 FU/cm²
- Hair diameter of 43 microns

Treatment plan:

- 1st procedure with 3500-4000 follicular units to reshape the face and fill in the mid head/crown area
- 2nd procedure with 2500-3000 follicular units to achieve a higher density rate in the mid head area and cover up the complete crown area
- A medicinal therapy with finasteride 1mg to stabilize or prevent further hair loss

Performed procedure (April 4, 2008):

A Follicular Unit Strip Transplantation with 4000 FU
* single hair 1100 FU
* double hair 2000 FU
* triple hair 900 FU

Donor closing in 2mm lower edge Trichophytic Closure Technique (double layer suture);
Parallel incisions (single, double and triple units) were made in custom-sized blades technique (~Cutting Edge blades of 0.7mm – 1.05mm);
Dense packing technique with a density of 50-60 FU/cm² in hair line and feather zone (single units), a density of 50 FU/cm² in density zone (double units) and a density of 35 FU/cm² in the crown area (triple units).

The patient wore a hair piece before his hair transplant procedure. Thanks to the high density rate of his first procedure he decided not to wear his hair piece any longer. His second procedure is planned this spring.
