View Full Version : Reconstruction of a crown area through FUE – performed by Dr. Feriduni – 1408 FU

05-22-2015, 11:57 AM
Follicular Unit Transplantation performed on a 30 year old Caucasian male with:

- Isolated vertex hair loss
- Donor density of ~70-80 FU/cm2 in the occipital region and ~60-70 FU/cm2 in the temporal region
- Hair diameter of ~64-74 microns

Treatment plan:

A Follicular Unit Extraction to add density to the crown area.

Performed procedure (September 25th, 2013):

A Follicular Unit Extraction with 1408 FU in a single day session
* 1408 double and triple hair FU ("Cherry-picking-technique)

Extraction performed with a 0,90 mm FUE punch with Versi handle™.
Parallel incisions (single and double units) were made in custom-sized blades technique (~Cutting Edge blades of 0,85 mm).

I generally do not advise a crown reconstruction in patients younger than 35 but since this patient only suffered from minor hair loss and since his donor situation was still intact, I made an exception after informing him about the possible risk on future hair loss.

Dr. B. Feriduni
