Dense-packing FUT performed by Dr. Feriduni - NW IV Class T/P - 3120 FU

Recommended Posts

FUT performed on a 36 year old Caucasian male with:


- NW IV Class T/P

- Donor density of ~70-85 FU/cm??

- Hair diameter of ~69 microns


Treatment plan:


- 1st procedure with 3000 follicular units to reshape the face by reconstructing the hair line and temporal peaks and to fill in the mid head area

- 2nd procedure with 2000-2500 follicular units to achieve a higher density rate in the mid head area and cover up the complete crown area

- A medicinal therapy with finasteride 1mg to stabilize and prevent further hair loss


Performed procedure (August 18, 2008):


A Follicular Unit Strip Transplantation with 3120 FU

* 980 single hair FU

* 1040 double hair FU

* 650 triple hair FU

* 450 quadriple hair FU


Donor closing in 1mm lower edge Trichophytic Closure Technique (double layer suture);

Parallel incisions (single, double units) and perpendicular incisions (triple and quadriple units) were made in custom-sized blades technique (~Cutting Edge blades of 0,75mm ??“ 1,1mm)

An average density of 40-45 FU/cm?? in hair line and feather zone (single units), an average density of 30-35 FU/cm?? in density zone (double units) and a density of 25 FU/cm?? in the crown area (triple/quadriple units).

I think it looks fabulous. However, I'm a bit confused on the write up. Is this the result after one surgery of 3120 grafts, or is this with the two surgeries that you mentioned in his transplant plan? Or, is he just going to have an additional surgery for another 2000 grafts?

He looks a lot better, and 3000 looks to have gone a long way. Do you have any top-down shots, or immediate post-ops? I'm curious how far back into the crown went, and what kind of density he got on the top. It looks like in some shots that his back is thicker in the 4months than the 10months, though I assume this is just an issue of lighting.


Also, I think this is just 1 session of 3k..no? And the 2nd of 2000-2500 is just in theory.


*A Follicles Dying Wish To Clinics*

1 top-down, 1 portrait, 1 side-shot, 1 hairline....4 photos. No flash.

Follicles have asked for centuries, in ten languages, as many times so as to confuse a mathematician.

Enough is enough! Give me documentation or give me death!

Thanks everyone, I really appreciate your kudos!


To TC17 : This patient had indeed a lot of four hair grafts, which is rather unusual.

In general we do not prepare any four hair grafts but since the patient had so many and he needed the density, we decided to make the best use of them and it worked perfectly in his case.


To Thanatopsis, Dakota3 and Bill:

Unfortunately I did not take any top down pics of this patient up to now. However I will make sure to take top down shots on his next visit.


Best regards,


Dr. B. Feriduni


P.S. : Sorry for the late answer but I attended to the ISHRS meeting at the end of July and took two weeks off directly after that.
