This 50- year-old male patient came to us seeking a hair transplant to improve his overall appearance with Norwood Class VI hair loss. To lessen the patient’s financial burden, he elected to do several smaller sessions and to begin with the frontal presentation. He will return in the future to address the crown and increase the density overall. The patient was scheduled for two separate 1,000 graft transplants and the donor site harvest yielded 20% single hair grafts, 46% two hair grafts, 34% three hair grafts. We concentrated on the frontal area using single hair grafts to create a natural looking irregular hairline. Following this, a combination of two and three hair grafts was used to obtain a denser concentration of hair in the forelock and temporal areas bilaterally. The stick and place method was used to achieve these results using 19 and 20 gauge needles. These photos were taken six months after his second procedure. Photos of the results from the second session will be posted in the future.
