This 57 year old man who had been "shiny bald" most of his adult life and was a Norwood VII balding pattern, underwent three modestly sized sessions averaging around 1500 grafts per session using a "combination" of DFU and FU grafts. In total he had 4404 grafts, of which 3794 were FU's and 605 were DFU/TFU grafts for a total of 11,967 hairs.

He chose to color his hair after he was transplanted which helped the new hair stand out better than if he had let it remain gray/white.

The "forelock pattern" is one which is used when there is not enough donor hair to fill in the top area side to side, and thus a front-central area of density is created to frame the face, and then a gradient of thinning hair is created to all sides to mimic a natural state of partial hair loss that many men go through.

This particular patient still has some useable donor hair left and is coming next month for a final session of around 1500 FU grafts.
