Bald Crown Coverage with Dr. Edmond I. Griffin

Recommended Posts

Hair loss in the crown can be greatly improved with a single surgery. But it is unrealistic to expect complete or "Full" coverage with only 1 procedure. Why? The direction of the hair in the Vertex grows in multiple directions. Therefore creating a "Vortex" or whirl in the crown requires more grafts. Some patients have multiple "whirls" or "Cow-licks" in this area. Consequently a 2nd procedure may be necessary, if your goal in complete coverage. This patient had a strip procedure performed and 1,424 grafts were transplanted over five years ago using MUG's and FUG's. The surgery size performed is usually directly related to each patient's budget. More grafts could have been transplanted in the first session. A second procedure has been performed and results can be posted once follow up photos are taken 1 year later. The photos shown were taken five years after the first procedure, and prior to the most recent surgery.
