This is a 60 YO male with androgenic alopecia, with thinning predominantly affecting hairline, FF, posterior FF, and bilateral temples and crown. Our plan was to recreate the frontal hairline, FF, post FF, temples and some crown.. Total area was approx 15cm x 7cm = 105 cm2, plus another 40 cm2 in crown. Decision was made to concentrate on the anterior and midscalp portion, allowing finasteride to work on the crown over the ensuing year, noting any effect at that time. Goals: Recreate hairline and FF and bilateral temple recessions, post FF and anterior crown. Wait to see how finasteride affects crown, possibly place 100 or so FU grafts there at this procedure to decrease severity of appearance.
Ellipse 30 cm x 1.0 cm x 110 (est) (in situ). 3099 total, 1029 1ís; 1990 2ís; 80 3ís.
Tricophytic closure.Patient will have second procedure of about the same number in January to address crown.

Very significant improvement. Makes a big difference and makes him look younger.
