✓ 37 years old, NW IV, losing hair since the age of 20, with a hair loss history in his family (father and brother, same condition).
✓ Taking Finasteride 1mg/day since the surgery.
✓ Thin/Medium caliber hair.
✓ Normal follicular units.
✓ High % of hair in telogen phase.
This 37-year-old gentleman came to visit me in order to find a solution for his hair loss, that was affecting him since the age of 20.
He wished to restore a large part of the thinning areas and wanted to be able to wear his donor hair short after the procedure : for these reasons, we agreed to perform a 3600-3800 FUE surgery in 2 consecutive days.
In July '17, the patient eventually received 3723 grafts in order to rebuild his hairline, cover the frontal area and fill the midscalp. Just after the surgery, he has also started a Finasteride treatment in order to maintain his native hair and increase its quality.
We present below some pictures showing his results 6 and 10 months after the procedure. The patient is currently considering a second surgerywith the aim of adding density to the vertex area. We'll keep you updated as usual in case he will proceed with it.
✓ 3723 grafts
✓ Technique: FUE
✓ FUE scoring and extractions executed with my WAW system, now widely used in the sphere of FUE. It consists of a very precise pedal that enables to control the movement of the punch, that I also designed myself. The main advantage is to reduce substantially the number of damaged and transected hair, thus to raise the quality of the procedure. The system is now used worldwide and several dozens of surgeons or centres are already using it.
✓ Grafts Breakdown:
☞ 1055 Single FUE grafts
☞ 1273 Double FUE grafts
☞ 1385 Triple FUE grafts
☞ 10 Quadruple FUE grafts
✓ Total number of Hair: 7796
✓ Average Hair/Graft: 2.09
