This is a 60 year old male who requested frontal density enhancement and a better defined hairline. He underwent a 3100 graft frontal hairline restoration using a stick-and-place method for graft insertion into the recipient site. Presented here are 14 month postoperative pictures along with immediate graft placement views.

Outstanding natural results all the way from the hairline almost including the crown.

Stick and place rules for transplanting into existing hair. :cool:


go dense or go home

He actually explains it on his website: "Most surgeons first go through the existing hair and make all of the recipient openings. After all of the openings have been made, they leave and have the technicians implant the hair grafts into these pre-made openings. Since skin is elastic, the openings begin to shrink almost immediately after they are created. To counteract this effect, surgeons will make larger openings. Because the graft openings are larger, less grafts can be implanted per square centimeter, reducing density and the natural look of the final result. The larger openings can also have a negative impact on the blood supply to the nearby, existing hair...Smaller openings are possible when using the stick-and-place method as they are filled with a hair graft immediately before they shrink. Smaller openings create less skin damage, maintain a healthier blood supply, reduce the risk of shock loss and allow the openings to be made closer together. Smaller openings and more follicles per square centimeter result in greater transplant density. The stick-and-place method also eliminates the risk of leaving openings unfilled or inadvertently placing two grafts into the same opening - problems often associated with standard pre-made openings. Finally, unlike pre-made openings which commit one to a predefined graft distribution, the stick-and-place method gives Dr. Konior the flexibility to customize graft placement so as to optimize the outcome. The "stick-and-place method" is utilized exclusively for patients who require grafts to be implanted among existing hair. This method assures the greatest precision possible so as to minimize shock loss and adjacent follicular damage."

That's the way it should be done!

Look at all those singles in front. It looks NATURAL.

Amazing result.

Having it be undetectable and natural looking is so important. Bravo Dr. Konior. Another home run.

p.s. this is awesome:
