This patient has type V hair loss. Assessment of the donor area showed slightly below average density and significantly below average hairs/follicular unit. Typically we see 1.8 - 2.0 hairs per graft but in this patient, the average was 1.5 hairs per graft. So despite getting over 4500 grafts, his total hair count was more in line with what a 3500 graft session would yield. In addition, he wanted some coverage in the crown, knowing this would take away from overall density. His photos are nine months after one session of 4516 grafts (2448-1s, 1827-2s, 241-3s). He plans to do another surgery soon.
