The case presented today has had just under 5000 grafts from two sessions, one in 2006 and the other in 2008. He came in yesterday and has had an additional 2600 grafts to primarily chase after loss in his mid scalp/vertex resulting from the discontinuation of medical therapy. Patient opted to D/C medical treatment for unclear reasons (had no adverse side effect), but now understand its importance and hopefully will remain dedicated to both finasteride and minoxidil. Presented today are his preop photos from 2006, his final growth photos taken preoperatively yesterday after having had ~5000 grafts (~1700 grafts in 2006 and ~3300 grafts in 2008) and an immediate post op photo taken today after an additional 2600 grafts were placed in his crown and mid-scalp.

Take home message for those who see this…
If you are going to move forward with transplant surgery you need to stay committed to medical therapy as long as you are not having adverse side effects.
