A 49-year-old wanted to have a full head of hair to celebrate his upcoming 50th birthday. A combination of follicular unit transplantation (http://www.drcarloswesley.com/follicular-unit-transplanting/) (FUT (http://www.drcarloswesley.com/follicular-unit-transplanting/)) coupled with both scalp and beard follicular unit extraction (http://www.drcarloswesley.com/follicular-unit-extraction/) (FUE ("http://www.drcarloswesley.com/follicular-unit-extraction/)) was deemed the best approach.

The patient can be seen before and about two years after his two sessions. A combination of over 4000 grafts were used to fill in his crown and add fullness throughout the caudal portion of his scalp. In addition, his hairline was slightly advanced in order to ensure that all of his scalp was addressed. As with all of our patients, this patient was not required to shave his hair within the recipient area. This enabled him to return to work and social activities sooner.
