This 50 year old male with very fine hair was first transplanted by us in 1997. In each of the three camera angles shown, the first photo is his "before" shot. The second photo is 8 years later (2005) after having received 2223 grafts (1443 FU's and 780 DFU's). The third photo in the series is four years later in 2009, with an additional 1043 FU's having been added at his 2005 surgery. The last photo (green backdrop) was taken recently, when we performed a final session of 1510 FU's. His totals at the time of these most recent photos are 3947 grafts (3167 FU's and 780 DFU's). The photos from the top of his head only show the "before" view, the 2005 one, and the most recent visit.

Over those 17 years, he obviously lost all of his original "native" hair, and there was probably some degree of thinning of the early transplanted hairs also. The other factor is that, as hair grays and becomes whiter, it has a tendency in photos to "disappear" somewhat to the viewer.
