Second Procedure: Additional photos are one year post op following 2740 FU procedure to address crown, midscalp, and refinement of hairline and previous frontal areas. 2740 Total FU's :470 1's; 2156 2's; 114 3's. Tricophytic closure. They are the last five photos in the series.

First Procedure:

This is a 60 YO male with androgenic alopecia, with 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.

Tricophytic closure.Patient will have second procedure of about the same number in January to address crown.

Very nice transformation already with a single procedure! Do you have a top down results pic to see how much of the top was addressed so far? I like the shorter hair on the patient, which seems to make him look younger and more distinguished at the same time...hope that makes sense. I can certainly see why he'd be happy.

@Hairthere- Attached is a photo of this patient at POD#8.


@Janna; Thank you very much for your kind assessment :D-

Attached is a "top-down" or "birds' eye" view!

    • Before the operation, you and the doctor can determine the planting plan. It is possible to plant 3,000 hair follicles and possibly 5,000 hair follicles. But how do you know that so many hair follicles have been planted?  If you actually plant a few hundred hair follicles or even thousands, you probably don't know?  So the question is coming. Is there a way to prove how many hair follicles I planted last?  Especially the manual FUE
    • Folks, Apologies for loosing track of this thread as I got occupied with other things in life. I would post some pictures soon. Almost 11 months have passed since my surgery . Everything is looking fine. My hair have grown well and has completely changed my front look. Only little downside I faced is thin donor on the back but I am fine with that considering how much of a difference it has made on my front look.  Now I think that it is time that I should start focusing on mid scalp and crown area and would schedule personal consultation with doctor  to see what are my options (BHT....May be if possible??). Please share if some of you came across certain threads related to body hair transplantation, and if that is a reliable option.  
    • Looks good. Next two months, but even next month are transformative. My hairs are still thin, but I'm hopeful they thicken, I don't know why they wouldn't. The hairline looks good, and it passes as natural, even with the shorter and thinner HT hairs.  Most people won't spend long enough looking at your hair to notice anything. Enjoy yourself out there and don't worry about it. Even if anything was suspected, passing it off as a bad haircut or even "that's just how my hair grows" is sufficient. I would be in shock if enough people approached you with questions for you to even waste time thinking of responses. Your hair looks good.
    • Looking back through the thread, I think your results look promising. You have new growth where there was none before. The growth you have is like my growth, very thin and curly. I too need to have it thicken up. I looked at myself in mirror (I'll try posting update tomorrow), and my hair looks very similar to yours. I see the area Bhatti worked on has more density, along with the new hairline. The issue you and I have is that the new density doesn't look good against the contrast with existing density. I recommend going to get a haircut like you had at 3 months, and especially thinning out the non-DHT prone crown (the toilet seat shaped area). It is the part that gets the most dense. I think that the two steps I would take is waiting for the thickening (not sure how long your or my case will take), and finding a flattering haircut.  I also started to thin (maybe fin shed, maybe I'm getting balder!) in my top+crown. So I gently push hair sideways. I'll try to explain tomorrow on my post. There's no issue with styling your hair to fit you. I see a lot of posts that essentially want care-free hair. They want to look good all the time from all angles. I just wanted to not be bald! If it takes a few seconds to a few minutes to accomplish a look you like, it is what it is. Again, I recommend modifying styling options. Without a haircut, your HT hair is at a disadvantage to the native highly-dense hair. If you don't want to cut it all down to a 3 month point, I recommend using thinning shears and reducing the amount your non-recipient hair "falls" on itself. Any additional perceived density on surrounding hair reduces perceived density on recipient hair site.
