2,100 Graft Hairline "Beef Up" | Dr. Bloxham | Feller & Bloxham Medical, NY, NYC, LI

Recommended Posts

All individuals experience hair loss differently. We frequently see patients with small changes or confined areas of thinning who almost feel guilty coming in to see a hair transplant doctor because their friends, partners, and family continually tell them that the hair loss is "nothing" and they should just "forget about it and move on." However, it is a big deal to these patients and the psychological stress and distraction from the hair loss often prevents them from focusing on bigger, better things. 

The patient in today's presentation falls into this category; he is a male who, most outsiders would probably agree, had quite "good hair" in general. I do not think the average person on the street would ever think he was thinning. However, he came from a long family of males with "perfect" hair, and, although his hair was still "good," his hair was simply not as "good" as it used to be. He had some pretty classic thinning throughout the entire frontal band, and really just wanted to thicken it. Long story short: despite the minimal amount of hair loss he had, this was bothering him and he was ready to take care of it. 

I discussed the reality of the situation with him thoroughly and I did believe he could "beef up" that area, and I also felt confident that it was unlikely (though not certain) he would progress to advanced hair loss. Regardless, we decided to start him off as an FUT to hedge our bets and leave his donor in good shape in case he did need a significant amount in the future. 

We ended up utilizing 2,100 grafts to place his hairline back where it originally was (frontal hairline only, no temporal hairline work needed) and densely pack the frontal band. He visited us 6 months later, and I was very pleased to see that the worry and distraction his hair loss caused him had vanished. 

Here are a few "comparison" shots of his case. Below is a detailed comb-through video which includes footage of his incision line. I highly recommend all interested patients watch the video.

Remember, hair loss is about identity; if you feel off, distracted, or stressed by any changes in the scalp, it is okay to see a hair restoration doctor and discuss your options. There is nothing wrong with taking care of this, despite how some may make you feel. 

Thanks for reading and watching.

Not much of a change imo 

He could have gone for a much lower hairline and more aggressive temples with such great hair thickness and donor

Im surprised the patient went with FUT for such minimal loss. It doesn't seem worth the scar imo. Very natural result though.
