Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 2176
Baldness Class: 5A
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This hair restoration patient is a 42 year old male with presenting complaint of androgenic alopecia resulting in loss of the frontal hairline, frontal forelock, midscalp and crown. In addition, his donor has a density of an average of 80 FU/cm2. This case illustrates the use of a limited number of grafts to recreate a natural look that is designed conservatively enough so that remaining donor is not utilized solely to support a non-conservative hairline approach. This allows for future use of grafts in the midscalp, along with donor available as needed to address future losses. Patient is currently on finasteride 1mg/day. Total grafts 2176; 1's = 1140; 2's = 1025; 3's = 11. Closure of strip donor site is tricophytic.

And remember, at this stage he has about 60% growth present.
