PATIENT'S DETAILS

 

31 years old, NW V-VI, losing hair since the age of 16, with a hair loss history in his family (paternal side).

 

✓ Had a previous FUT procedure done in another clinic. Unknown number of grafts. Results not noticeable at all except for some pluggy grafts visible in the vertex area.

 

No medications before nor after the procedure.

 

Medium hair.

 

Normal follicular units.

 

High % of hair in telogen phase.

 

 

 

RECOMMENDED TREATMENT

 

The patient presented an extended hair loss (NW V-VI) and wished to get as much coverage as possible in a single session.

 

Since he wished to wear his donor hair short after the surgery, we decide to perform an FUE procedure consisting of 4225 grafts.

 

This amount of grafts has allowed us to rebuild the patient's hairline and to cover his frontal, midscalp and vertex areas with a very satisfying density. We took this opportunity to repair the scar resulting from his previous FUT as well.

 

The patient came for a check-up at the clinic at the 7th post-op mark, when his results were already remarkable as you can see in the pictures below.

 

One year after the surgery, he sent in another set of pictures and he's thrilled by the results he has achieved so far. It is important to underline that the patient hasn't taken any medications before nor after the procedure.

 

 

 

SURGERY DETAILS

 

4225 grafts

 

Technique: FUE

 

FUE scoring and extractions executed with my WAW system, now widely used in the sphere of FUE. It consists of a very precise pedal that enables to control the movement of the punch, that I also designed myself. The main advantage is to reduce substantially the number of damaged and transected hair, thus to raise the quality of the procedure. The system is now used worldwide and several dozens of surgeons or centres are already using it.

 

Incisions: 35-40/cm2

 

Grafts Breakdown:

☞ 441 Single FUE grafts

☞ 2221 Double FUE grafts

☞ 1487 Triple FUE grafts

☞ 76 Quadruple FUE grafts

 

Total number of Hair: 9648

 

Average Hair/Graft: 2.28

Dr Devroye,

This is a great case your patient must be thrilled with his results.

 

A lot of real estate covered with 4225 grafts. The hairline design considering that amount of loss is great as well. A nice age appropriate placement that isn’t too conservative and should suit him very well in the future.

 

 

how many FUE grafts does this patient have left to utilize for future procedures if needed? I imagine he has exhausted close to 5000 grafts and would be interested to hear what is left of his donor?

 

Terrific work.

Spanker, Wazaam, thanks for your kind appreciation.

 

Regarding this patient's remaining donor capacity: he still has at least 2000 available resources via FUE in case he will need a further procedure down the line. Probably even more.

 

In this regard, the length the patient wish to wear his donor hair after the procedure plays an important role. If he wants to cut his hair very short (similar to buzz cut), the reduction of the density following FUE extractions will be much more visible, therefore it would probably be better to err on the side of caution regarding his available donor capacity.

 

On the other hand, if he grows his donor hair longer, the density reduction will be less significant since it will be masked by the length of the existing hair. This scenario will normally allow to extract at least 2000 more grafts, as stated above.

 

Hope this helps,
