"Classic" 2,600 Graft HT | Dr. Blake Bloxham | Feller & Bloxham, NY, NYC, Long Island

Recommended Posts

Today I wanted to present what is likely our most common and most "classic" case: the 2,500 graft -- or 2,600 graft in this instance -- FUT case. While we see patients with all types of hair loss, it seems like the most common are males with advanced -- or advancing -- hair loss, and we typically say they will likely want to do two procedures over time: a 2,500-ish graft FUT mega-session now for the hairline, frontal scalp and transition into the mid-scalp; and another 2,500-ish graft FUT mega-session later to finish the mid-scalp and address the crown. Doing two large FUTs tends to, in my opinion, provide good coverage from "front to back" and leave patients in the best situation for the long-term. They should have a good incision line scar and plenty of grafts left for more potential work (done via FUT or FUE) if needed. 

So here is one of those "classic cases:"

Male physician in his late 20's headed to a NW V-VI pattern; we recommended two planned FUT procedures of approximately 2,500 grafts a piece; he did the first (hairline, frontal scalp, and mid-scalp transition) in winter of 2017, and the second (finished the mid-scalp and crown) in winter of 2018. 

Here are a few comparison pictures of his 10 month results from the first procedure. As usual, I highly encourage all to watch the video. Video is the ULTIMATE way to present a hair transplant result. This video includes the result, detailed comb-through (HD), and footage of the incision line (FUT scar).

Very nice and natural looking results, conservative approach fits this patient better that an all-in since he still had lots of native hair on top.

Recession and Cosmo, 

Thank you for the kind words. That was absolutely the strategy here: natural, conservative, and a smart use of grafts to achieve a satisfying result in the "long term."

2600 grafts went a long way!  Natural and conservative, however, key point here is it is a distinct change and noticeable successful distinct improvement.  Ive seen some other docs post similar cases but the outcome is as they say so subtle that it is next to questionable(and for the money spent, not worthwhile)— here on the other hand it is distinct face enhancing improvement for the better.  Great work!
