This young man was wearing a hairpiece (which is why the hair is shaved in the before photos). A surgery consisting of 2,853 grafts (4938 hairs) was performed. The immediate post op picture is followed by one taken at suture removal. We ask hairpiece users to keep it off for one week after surgery, then to only wear it loosely during the day thereafter until the hair grows in.
