Dr. Nakatsui, temple lowering, 6 months


Recommended Posts

This is a patient who wanted to fill in his temples quite a bit and effectively wanted to square off his frontal hairline. In many patients I am reluctant to do this too aggressively as we cannot always predict the extent of future hair loss. However, this patient presented in his early 40s with fairly localized, defined areas of hair loss with absolutely no weakness of the hair elsewhere. As a result, I felt his chances of future aggressive thinning was low and I decided to fill in his temples as he desired.

 

We transplanted 449 single grafts, 861 double grafts, and 693 big grafts, for a total count of 2003 grafts into his temples. His after photos show his hair growth after 6 months. His newly transplanted hair has already grown quite a bit, although we can definitely expect more growth over the next 6-8 months.

 

As many of you are aware, the new hair often grows in a bit coarser and wavier than usual, but this usually settles over time. I think there is a small area of weakness that has yet to grow in well yet along the right frontal hairline, but there are still many months to go and this hair should eventually wake up.
