This 46-year-old patient came to Dr Rahal with the desire to restore his hairline and frontal zone. He was a 3 on the Norwood scale.

 

Dr Rahal designed a hairline to suit the patient's expectations of filling in the receding area; and for this 2564 grafts were transplanted using the FUE method. The density at 36 grafts per cm was average - due to donor limitations, size of the recipient area and to leave grafts in reserve for future requirements.

 

Surgery Type - FUE

 

Recipient Area Treated - 72cm

Total Grafts - 2564

Total Hairs - 5431

Recipient Graft Density - 35.6 grafts/cm

Recipient Hair Density - 75.4 hairs/cm

 

Graft Breakdown:

Single Hairs - 560 grafts

Two Hairs - 1200 grafts

Three Hairs - 749 grafts

Four Hairs - 56 grafts

Average Hairs Per Graft - 2.12

This is why I cringe when I see the 3500-4000 graft FUT cases over the same area lately. Obviously this guy has fantastic hair texture and calibre but clearly there's a point of diminishing returns with cramming huge numbers of grafts. Did propecia contribute to the result at all?

 

A shot with the hairline pulled up would be nice though.

I agree and disagree. For this guy, 2500gr works because he appears to have some seriously thick hair. Horse hair, haha

 

Me? My entire head is like one giant wispy hairball, lol. So I've needed 4000gr in my frontal third. Wasteful? -- no, because I'm 42yo and on meds. 2500gr for ME would have made my bald areas just look like very diffuse areas unfortunately

 

It just depends on so many factors, specific to each patient. In my opinion anyway :-)

I am seeing so many really good HT's using what seems to be smaller amounts of grafts than usual. Maybe the doctors are just getting better? Another 9 months till my HT, fill my head up with 1000 grafts by then lol

love how Rahal designs his hairlines and starts transplanting behind a natural forelock, makes the final result look amazing
