This patient has type IV loss and wanted frontal restoration. We did FUT of 3,042 grafts (1-1215, 2-1325, 3-502; 5,321 hairs). We also performed PRP/ACell to try to provide some overall thickening. He is shown at 9 months. Some comments: his hairs/graft were below average but the quality of his hair (caliber, curl) made up for this, providing nice coverage. There is mild thickening in the mid scalp and crown from the PRP despite the patient not being on finasteride (we recommended it, but he decided against it). He plans to do periodic PRP's to keep up with any future loss.
