Dr. Timothy Carman- 2184 Total FU grafts; 1 Year Post Op Result

Recommended Posts

Patient is a 37 YO asian male who presents with loss of frontal hair line, frontal forelock, and midscalp/anterior crown thinning. The cornerstone of long term success in hair transplant surgery is understanding the supply/demand inequity which is a factor in over 90% of candidates: there is a limited/finite supply of follicular units available in the patients lifetime, so the artwork design and subsequent placement must respect this overriding concept. This generally translates into higher, more receded/diffuse hairlines and less aggressive crown reconstructions in order to constrict the total area to be transplanted in a pattern that mimics those naturally occurring thinning patterns in nature. Her we see a diffuse, receded hairline created along with good density realized in the midscalp and anterior crown area. This allows for future loss to be successfully addressed as the patient experiences any further progression of his hair loss. Total: 2184; Ones: 849; Two's: 1082; Three's: 253.

Was this a FUE or strip surgery?
