This patient came to us nearly 5 years ago and for the following 3 years used finasteride in a bid to stabilise his loss.

He then felt better placed to improve the front knowing that his plan to take things slowly had worked. Then and now he has no interest in improving the back with surgery.

He received 1760 grafts via FUT with an average of 2.2 hairs per graft.

It looks natural, but it is one of the most conservative hairlines I have seen.

Why FUT when going that conservative

Appreciate the comments Gasthoerer. This particular patient did not want his donor area shaved so we performed a strip surgery.

As I mentioned, the patient did not want us to shave his donor - so FUT was performed. It was felt that a positive outcome could be achieved with a relatively modest amount of grafts, which I think the pics show.

There's certainly an improvement, but is there s reason the patient only went for 1700 grafts? 2500-3000 would have served him better for density wise. Is he planning a 2nd procedure?

Thanks for your comments.

The patient requested a conservative approach. He has achieved his aim and has many grafts left in the bank should he decide on further surgery down the line. Just because it may not be the approach you or I would take doesn't make it any less valid.

This recent case shows that when needed and requested, we are happy to do more:

Hair transplants should be a bespoke procedure - not one where more is always better.
