A 30 yrs old male presented with the complaint of baldness, NH Grd III, for hair transplant. He had already taken some medicines outside but without any improvement. So, he now wanted hair transplant only. The pattern of hair loss was stable. His father was also bald. He was offered both FUT & FUE for restoring hair. But, he chose FUT because of the monetary restraints. His pre-op hair density was around 68 FU/cm2 ( the average Indian density is around 65-70 FU/cm2). The strip was 27 cm long and 1.3 cm in width in midline. A double layer Trichophytic closure with Vicryl 3-0 inner, interrupted and Prolene 4-0 outer continuous was done. Two thousand two hundred and fifty grafts ( 2250) were dissected and implanted. The surgery was uneventful and the patient was discharged in a satisfactory way.
