Hair transplant surgery before and after images

Hair Transplant Sessions: 2
Grafts Implanted: 8429
Baldness Class: 6
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

FUT performed on a 40 year old Caucasian male with:

- NW Class V-VI
- Donor density of 110 FU/cm2
- Hair diameter of > 85 microns

Treatment plan:
Follicular Unit Transplantation with 4000-5000 follicular units to restore the hair line, temporal peaks and mid head and crown area.

Performed procedure (February 23, 2009):
A Follicular Unit Strip Transplantation with 4460 FU
* 1680 single hair FU
* 2040 double hair FU
* 740 triple hair FU

Donor closing in 1mm lower edge Trichophytic Closure Technique (double layer suture);
A combination of parallel (single units) and perpendicular incisions (double and triple units) in custom-sized blades technique (~Cutting Edge blades of 0.7mm – 1.1mm).

This patient decided to step over to a hair restoration surgery after wearing a full hair piece for many years.The patient‘s aim was a high density Follicular unit Transplantation (HD FUT) to obtain a “similar” density to his hair piece. Unfortunately full coverage was not possible even with a high flexibility of the donor area and over average density of 110 FU/cm2. So he decided to wear a smaller hair piece after 1st procedure to cover up the non-treated areas. After he saw the result of the first procedure he decided to go for a second procedure to cover the crown area as well.


Treatment plan :
2nd procedure with 3500-4000 FU to add more density to the hair line and restore the crown area

Performed procedure (July 12, 2010):
A Follicular Unit Strip Transplantation with 3969 FU
* 990 single hair FU
* 1728 double hair FU
* 841 triple hair FU
* 610 four hair FU

Donor closing in 1mm lower edge Trichophytic Closure Technique (double layer suture);
A combination of parallel (single units) and perpendicular incisions (double, triple and four hair units) in custom-sized blades technique (~Cutting Edge blades of 0.7mm – 1.1mm).
