This 37 year old patient presented with a request for frontal hairline restoration.   He requested an FUE harvest in order to maintain the ability to wear short hairstyles in the future.  A 2092 graft frontal hairline restoration was performed using an FUE harvest.  Presented is his seventeen month postop result.  Perioperative graft placement photos, along with preop and seventeen month donor site photos are presented.  Density inspection photos show the coverage that was obtained in the graft zone.

This patient has remaining native hair in the recipient area which raises the likelihood of permanent shock loss, but Dr. K works with such care during surgery it minimizes this risk.  This is also why his immediate post-op pics are always so clean, and just check out that one week post-op pic of the donor region!

Thread bookmarked for future reference, and has now confirmed my choice of surgeon for next procedure. 
 

Have admired Dr K’s work for a good few years online now, and I was waiting to find a case just like this - patients hair loss pattern mimics what I am predicting my loss to get to over the next few years, so to see a result like this with only 2000 grafts is amazing. 
 

Well done to all involved, and thankyou for sharing.

Good donor hair characteristics in play here.

And looks like the patient came in for a second session for the crown.  Look forward to seeing the outcome in a year!

Can anybody explain to me how Dr. Konior is so clean with his implantations? It almost looks like there were no incisions at all, like the hair just always naturally existed there. There's really no other doctor I've seen that has an immediate post-op looking like this.

The post op donor is amazing. My case was almost 9 years ago...today, I would have went FUE for sure.

9 years ago already?  Man, time flies.  Still remember hanging out post-op!

Excellent result. Any results of fine blonde / mousey brown hair that you could perhaps share...? Thanks

Just posted is a fine hair case which contrasts the difference in achievable density between fine and high-caliber hair.

Excellent result!

Would this kind of result be attainable for the lower third frontal strip?

Also, could you explain a little about this sentence: 'the strategy of using a thick-to-thin transition along front-to-back and left-to-right vectors was deemed best'   I'm not so familiar with this terminology...

Thank!
