Follicular Unit Transplantation performed on a 36 year old Caucasian male with:

- NW Class III vertex
- Donor density of 70 FU/cm²
- Hair diameter of ~60 microns

Treatment plan:

- 1st procedure to reconstruct the entire hair line and mid head zone
- 2nd procedure to achieve a higher density rate in the crown area, this after a medicinal therapy of 1 year (Finasteride)

Performed procedure (February 12, 2008):

A Follicular Unit Strip Transplantation with 3000 FU
* 1400 single hair FU
* 1200 double hair FU
* 400 triple hair FU

Donor closing in 1mm lower edge Trichophytic Closure Technique (double layer suture);
A combination of parallel (single units) and perpendicular incisions (double and triple units) in custom-sized blades technique (~Cutting Edge blades of 0,7mm – 1,0mm);
Dense packing technique with a density of 40-50 FU/cm² in hair line and feather zone (single units), a density of 50 FU/cm² in density zone (double units) and a density of 35 FU/cm² in the crown area (triple units) to add more density to this zone.
