Dr. Arocha - 4500 grafts over two FUT procedures

Recommended Posts

This patient came to Dr. Arocha with severe thinning. He was an AGA NW4v. He had a total of 4500 grafts transplanted in a total of two FUT procedures. The before images were taken immediately following his first procedure. The after results were taken 1.5 years after his second transplant.  

1st Transplant: 3000 grafts

2nd Transplant: 1500 grafts

Please note: the backgrounds are different because Dr. Arocha converted his photo studio into a professional studio over the course of this patient's transplant journey.

Kind of a misleading representation due to the patient's hair being wet in the before pictures. Wet hair will always appear thinner but nonetheless still a very nice result.

This one is beautiful, and a perfect example of why I find diffuse loss so frustrating. I appreciate how the work largely maintains the natural shape of the hair and focuses on adding thickness/density to the pattern. Nothing was radically redesigned here but the patient's hair now looks healthy and strong rather than "sickly."

The donor pictures are great to have as well. I honestly wish that was a requirement for all presentations on the forum.

Did the patient split the front and the back across two procedures or was the second pass more a general focus on adding density throughout the scalp?
