Dr. Cam Simmons – 3557 grafts in front for a Norwood 5 to 6 thinning man

Recommended Posts

This 29 year-old man had a Norwood 5 to 6 thinning pattern. He was balding in front with a thinning midfrontal forelock and he had thinning in his midscalp. He had coarser than average, black, wavy hair and average scalp laxity and donor density. He kept his hair short to de-emphasize the balding in front.


3500 grafts were available from the safest part of his donor area in one session without risking a tight closure. He opted to focus on the front and to start Finasteride to stabilize his hair loss.


We transplanted 3557 grafts. He had about 8% 1s, 50% 2s, 33% 3s, 8% 4s, and 1% 5s, by sampling. He had scoring-blunt donor dissection and a 2-layer trichophytic closure.


These photos are taken after 8 months so he doesn’t quite have his final results. He has seen a moderate improvement in his hair in his midscalp because of the Finasteride and because his hair is longer.
