This 55 y/o male presented two years ago for his first of two transplant procedures. Because he was an advanced Norwood VI/VII pattern and his donor density was relatively sparse, I elected to use a "shield" frontal forelock pattern, which emphasizes front-central density and a gradient of decreasing density away from the stronger forelock area. He is returning for one final session to increase density and the coverage toward the back a little bit. The "after" photos shown here are only 9 months after his 2nd procedure, so there would still be another 20% or so of "hair mass" increase that should occur in the next 4-8 months.

Overall, he had 2858 grafts, with 2244 of them FU's and 614 DFU's (4-6 hairs each), for a total of 7181 hairs received.
