Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 3033
Baldness Class: 3A
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This 28-year-old gentleman desired greater density in the frontal and mid-scalp. He had been losing his hair for a few years, but felt it had stabilized. He was started on medical therapy, consisting of finasteride and Rogaine, to further stabilize his hair loss.


3,033 grafts were placed into the frontal hairline and frontal mid-scalp in one hair transplant session with a high-density graft placement technique with slits oriented in the coronal plane. The photographs, taken six months post operatively, show tremendous growth and increased fullness in the transplanted 
areas. Since he is only 6 months out, we expect continued growth and maturation of the transplanted hairs.

Additionally, some growth can be seen in the crown area, which was treated solely with medical therapy (this is illustrated in the final photo). We will report his one-year results in the future.
