27 year old patient, who despite medical treatment, continued to have constant thinning due to his hereditary diffuse class 5 thinning pattern. 2,725 follicular units were placed in between his existing hairs (follicular units: single hair-415, double hairs-552 & multi-hairs-1,758). Excellent results were obtained with overall thickening. Photos shown are pre-op and after one year post-op. Comments are welcome.

Wow, this guy should be amazed by these results! At 2,725 FU as well means he now has a great hairline with so many more units to work with.

How many FU do you think he has left in the donor region?

Thank you JayM for the compliment. He has many follicular units left if he continues to have hair loss in the future. The patient was responsible and conservative in his original procedure. Even though his hair loss pattern is genetically challenged his donor area is blessed.
