This patient is a 49 year old male who presents with loss of the frontal hairline as well as density in the frontal forelock and crown area. His donor area has a relatively thinner density than the average 100FU/cm2, his being approx 70FU/cm2. This yielded a total of 2063 FU grafts as follows: 502 one's; 1525 two's; 36 three's. We chose to concentrate on the frontal area on the first procedure, with a plan to address the crown in a subsequent session. Here, at eight months, he can expect about 15-20% further growth into the one year mark. I like this case as it illustrates how the variability in the colour and texture of the patient's natural hair characteristics can aid in the appearance of cosmetic density, especially at low transplant numbers.

Dr. Carman,


Excellent work! I agree that the characteristics of this patient's hair definitely add to the illusion of density. His results are already cosmetically appealing and age appropriate and he's got more to come!


Thank you for presenting this case.
