This patient is a 41-year-old male who desired to increase the hair density in the frontal scalp via the FUE method. He wanted the option in the future to keep his hair short. He says that he is a good healer, but since he wanted the short haircut option, the FUE method of follicular unit transplantation was performed. 2168 grafts were extracted and transplanted into the frontal hairline and frontal scalp regions.


The 6-month postoperative results are displayed. It shows excellent growth of the transplanted grafts. The patient stated that his hair started growing several months ago and continues to thicken up and the density is improving monthly. He feels it is completely natural and has no issues with anyone recognizing that he had a hair transplant performed since the frontal hairline is so natural appearing. Since the patient is only 6-months out from the procedure, he still has 20 % - 30 % more growth expected. He plans to return for his 1-year and 1.5-year post-operative progress checks.


A video will be added shortly.
