This 33 year old gentleman had a hair loss pattern similar to a class 4. He came to me with the hope of getting as much coverage as possible. His goal was to build up his hairline and add density to the frontal ½ of the scalp. I explained to him that his expectations could not be met after one procedure. Rather, he will have a dramatic change after one procedure, but he still might want a 2nd procedure to add more density. After establishing his medical history and understanding the progression of his hair loss, I diagnosed his condition as Androgenetic Alopecia (male pattern baldness), ruling out any other possible dermatological or medical conditions which can cause hair loss. The patient’s goal was well suited to his needs and therefore I planned the surgery accordingly. I wanted to reconstruct a hairline that would be suitable for him now, but also something that will look good as he gets older. A total of 3,175 grafts were used. The break down was as follows: 1,209 single hair grafts and 1,966 two hair grafts. I used a significant amount of single hair follicular units which allowed me to create a very natural hairline. By doing this it will allow him to comb his hair without anyone detecting that he has had anything done. These are his results 9 months after his first procedure and there will continue to be more improvement over the next few months. The patient is extremely happy with his results.
