Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 2367
Baldness Class: 2
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This patient is a 44-year-old gentleman who had a hair transplant with us back in 2006 in Portland, Oregon. He had moved away from the area and was back in town and stopped by the office. He says his current business is in investing, and that the transplant he had with us was the best investment of his life. His confidence was dramatically enhanced with the procedure as he is often in the public eye. He regularly uses finasteride and I’ve discussed with him the use of minoxidil.

In 2006, he had 2367 follicular unit grafts placed into the frontal region of the scalp. The preoperative photographs show the outline that we proposed. Even with his thin hair, his transplant result has held up well throughout the years confirming that hair harvested from the proper area in the donor zone is permanent. Also, the way his hair is combed in the photographs is the way that he styles it forward and presented that day in the office. Since 2006, I have standardized the photographic poses and views to get much better, consistent before and after photographic comparisons. At this point, he is now interested in filling in the crown region. For the next procedure, I will also take a larger strip and increase the density in the frontal hairline and mid-scalp with the remaining grafts. Once the procedure is complete, I will post the results.
