This 24 year old gentleman was a class 3v. After establishing his medical history and understanding the progression of his hair loss, I diagnosed his condition as Androgenetic Alopecia (male pattern baldness), ruling out any other possible dermatological or medical conditions which can cause hair loss. His goal was to achieve a natural looking hairline with as much coverage as possible into the frontal 1/2 of his scalp. I explained that the procedure would give him enough density in the front half of his scalp so that when he combed his hair, it would not appear as though his hair was thinning. As we planned the surgery, we needed to take his age, present degree of hair loss and possible further hair loss into consideration. Each surgery needs to address the main concerns of a patient so no two plans are the same. We agreed that it would be best to still keep some temple recession so that it will look good for him at 24 but it would still look good as he ages. I also explained that if he wanted more density, after his first procedure, that his donor area would support another procedure. This would allow him to add more density into the frontal area or into his crown. I also explained to him that there was a possibility that he could lose more of his own hair. If this was to happen the transplanted hair would be able to stand alone and still look natural, but he would need another procedure to bring it back to the way it looks now.
He had a total of 3,577 grafts. The break down was as follows: 1,658 single hair, 1,569 two hair grafts and 350 three hair grafts. These are his results 10 months post-op and it will continue to improve over the next 2-5 months. The patient is on Finasteride and is extremely happy with his results.
