Here is a 42-year-old man who wanted the fullness of his hairline back. The results of a 2326-graft follicular unit transplantation (FUT) (http://www.drcarloswesley.com/follicular_unit_transplanting.html) session with Dr. Wesley (http://www.drcarloswesley.com) can be seen at 11 months after his surgery. The patient is ecstatic.

I have also attached a few of his pattern pictures. As you can see, patients in our practice (http://drcarloswesley.com/scarless_surgery.html) do not need to shave their heads for an FUT (http://drcarloswesley.com/follicular_unit_transplanting.html) procedure. In fact, the pre-existing hair is quite beneficial in that it camouflages any redness during the short-term recovery process. Therefore, patients are able to return to work or social activities earlier.
In addition to the pattern pictures, I included a close-up image of the donor at the time of suture removal. This patient did a great job of keeping his donor area clean which facilitates the suture removal process and allows you to see the alignment of the donor wound edges.
