Discuss this patient on our Hair Restoration Forum

Follicular Unit Transplantation performed on a 33 year old Caucasian male with:

- NW Class V-Va
- Donor density of 92 FU/cm??
- Hair diameter of ~75 microns

Treatment plan:

- 1st FUE procedure with 3000 FU to reconstruct the hair line and mid head area
- 2nd FUE procedure with 3000 FU to restore the crown area and increase the overall density

Performed procedure (May 3rd, 2009):

A Follicular Unit Extraction with 3029 FU in a single day session, '3 step procedure', i.e. an intermittent follicular unit extraction (iFUE), with:

* 831 single hair FU
* 1562 double hair FU
* 636 triple hair FU

Extraction performed with a 0.9mm FUE punch with Versi handle??. No microscopic preparation of the follicular unit grafts;
Parallel incisions (single and double units) were made in custom-sized blades technique (~Cutting Edge blades of 0.7mm ??“ 0.9mm);
Dense packing technique with a density of 50 FU/cm?? in hair line and feather zone (single units), a density of 40 FU/cm?? in density zone (double units) .

This patient is definitely an exceptional case as he has an extremely high donor density/yield. In general this procedure would also be performed in a 2 successive days session.
His second FUE procedure is planned in the month of April 2010.
