This patient is a 44 year old gentleman from Seattle, Washington, who is 1 year out from his transplant. His main concern was restoring his hairline and filling in the balding areas in the frontal scalp. He was a NW 3/4 who had 3852 grafts placed in the hairline and front part of his scalp in 1 session.


Strip: 26.0 x 1.8 cm
1 hair grafts: 512
2 hair grafts: 2315
3 hair grafts: 1025

I saw him last month in my Seattle, Washington office where the post operative photos were taken. I did not have my usual set up so the lighting and background are different from the preoperative photos. He will be coming down to my Portland office in the future where additional photos will be obtained. I included intraoperative photographs showing the slit design and placement as well as immediate postoperative photographs.

One photo did not seem to make it - the close up shot. Here it is.
