This gentleman is in his late 30s. He is an ex-Navy Seal (thank you for your service!) who keeps up with a strenuous workout routine and has Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, which is predisposed to scar stretching. He came to Dr. Bernard Arocha to enhance his hairline and increase the density in the frontal third to mid-scalp area. He had a 3,823 FUT procedure and you can see the evolution of the transplant from pre-op to 16 months below.
Disclosure: I work with Dr. Arocha, a member of the Coalition of Independent Hair Restoration Physicians.
This post features a 31 year old gentleman with MPB Norwood 4v/5 who came to Arocha Hair Restoration wanting to start the hair restoration process with a procedure of 3000 FU. He has medium/fine hair caliber and average density of 80 FU/cm2. The after photos were taken during an impromptu visit 10 months post transplant. He stopped by after he had worked out and perspired a great deal. He stated that he would be back in a few months for his one year follow up visit.
31 year old with significant diffuse thinning resulting in a NW 5 pattern, desiring to do a small session to start his hair restoration. He had a 2000 FU sesssion with Dr. Arocha. The after photos are taken at 8 months post-transplant.
This patient has female pattern hair loss characterized by diffuse thinning over the frontal and mid-scalp areas, she was a Ludwig II in the pre-surgery photos. We performed a FUT of 2515. As usual she was advised that the procedure was going to move more hair to increase the amount of hair growing in the transplanted area. Since her hair was very fine because of the overall miniaturization process she was recommended to start treatment with Rogaine 5% bid. The after surgery photos are taken at 9 months post-TP. These results confirm what we preach that the most efficacious treatment of male and female pattern hair loss is through combination therapy.
This patient came in recently after having his hair restoration procedure done by Dr. Arocha a few years ago. We remember him first coming to AHR wearing a hair piece because he hated his hair loss so much. He had initially undergone a procedure with another clinic and was less than satisfied with the results. He continued to hide under his toupee which gave him a lot of hair on the top of his head but of course couldn't provide a natural result or the framing of his temples. For his second procedure, he did a lot more research and chose Dr. Arocha. In December of 2007, Dr. Arocha performed a 3356 FUT procedure on him. The patient is very happy with his results after his procedure. It's also interesting to note the further improvements in his physique, as is often observed once the benefits of having hair restoration are experienced. Patients often go on to seek further improvements that lead to very positive health benefits and further rejuvenation. Not to mention increased self-esteem and confidence.

This young gentleman came to see us for help with his receding hairline and thinning in the frontal area. Dr. Arocha performed a 2000 FU procedure to restore the framing of his face, and increase the density in the frontal scalp area. His goals were more than met within 4.75 months after his dense packing procedure. He returned after more than one year post-transplant for a follow-up visit. He is more than ecstatic with his results, stating that even when he was a teenager, before he ever had hair loss, his hair just never laid down as well as after his hair restoration. This is testament to not only obtaining natural, undetectable results, but also what a difference the art component makes.
These result photos are at over one year post-procedure.
