This patient presented six years ago with type V hair loss and was started on finasteride. We performed FUT consisting of 2,800 grafts to his frontal scalp. He returned a year later and we performed 3,711 grafts to the midscalp, crown, and hairline. I did not see him for many years till he returned recently to add some more to the crown. In the first two procedures, he received 6,511 grafts (13,140 hairs). Notice the changes in the hair over the years. He has very fine hair but after the first procedure, it appeared a little thicker and was very wavy. We sometimes see these changes in the first year of new hair growth. Over time, it settles down and blends in with the rest of the hair.
