Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 3099
Baldness Class: 5A
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This is a 60 year old male hair restoration patient with androgenic alopecia, who is thinning predominantly affecting hairline, FF, posterior FF, and bilateral temples and crown. Our plan was to recreate the frontal hairline, FF, post FF, temples and some crown.. Total area was approx 15cm x 7cm = 105 cm2, plus another 40 cm2 in crown. Decision was made to concentrate on the anterior and midscalp portion, allowing Finasteride to work on the crown over the ensuing year, noting any effect at that time. Goals: Recreate hairline and FF and bilateral temple recessions, post FF and anterior crown. Wait to see how finasteride affects crown, possibly place 100 or so FU grafts there at this procedure to decrease severity of appearance.
Ellipse 30 cm x 1.0 cm x 110 (est) (in situ). 3099 total, 1029 1’s; 1990 2’s; 80 3’s.
Trichophytic closure. Patient will have second hair transplant procedure of about the same number in the future to address the crown.
