Dr. Friedman performed a FUT on a 46 year old male, Norwood VI, who desired frontal restoration. Dr. Friedman artistically redesigned patient’s hair line working his way back to the crown. Dr. Friedman successfully transplanted 3,694 grafts. 1,238 single follicles were placed in patient’s hairline, temples and temple peaks; 2,456 group follicles were placed in patient’s frontal region, midscalp and anterior midscalp. Dr. Friedman used custom blades and strategically placed each follicular unit at the correct angle and direction creating the patient’s transplanted grafts to grow in a natural pattern. One transplant on Norwood class VI gives the patient an appearance of just beginning to thin. Dr. Friedman informed the patient that Norwood class VI typically needs 2 procedures to fill all areas of concern.

 

Photos show patient pre-op and 9 months post op. After surgery, patient followed up with 10 sessions of low-level laser therapy to support the healing process by increasing blood flow to the transplanted areas. With Dr. Friedman’s recommendation, patient decided to start using low-level laser therapy as his hair loss prevention.

Dr. Shelly Friedman is citing Capillus (double-blind IRB sponsored study) and Scottsdale Institute for Cosmetic Dermatology(SICD) own in-house study (non IRB study). Capillus conducted a trial with Capillus272 laser device which significantly improved hair counts by 51% in females (vellus hairs to terminal hairs over placebo). Capullus272 gained FDA 510K clearance in January 2015.

 

SICD conducted a 100 patient study with the following results:

Patient Satisfaction: 94.5% of men; 92.2% of women

Hair Loss Response:100% of men; 95.3% of women

Hair Thickening:97.2% of men; 93.8% of women
