Here are 8 month post op photos on a Norwood Type 6 patient.   

This patient is 52 years old and wanted to cover as much of the bald area as possible.    I covered the front ½ and most of the crown.   The area covered is about 150 sqcm and on average his density is 30-35 FU/sq.cm.  The density could have been higher if we decided not to cover the crown.  I do expect to see some more growth over the next four months. 

His graft count is as follows:    

1 Hair FU - 983 Hairs – 983
2 Hair FU – 2703 Hairs – 5406
3 Hair FU - 856 Hairs – 2568
4 Hair FU – 102 Hairs - 408
Total FU - 4644 Total Hairs – 9365

The total length of the strip was 26.5 cm long.
At its widest the strip was 2cm wide in the middle and at the temples the strip was 1.5cm wide. The strip dimensions was as follows:

10.5 cm long of 2.0 cm wide strip
9.5 cm long of 1.8 cm wide strip
7.5 cm long of 1.5 cm wide strip

This is again another natural result.  There are many options with someone that has grey hair and is essentially done with their hairloss.  I personally would have gone with more density and not touching the crown but likely that too would have drawn more attention from friends and family members and he would have definitely been "outed."  Possibly this was more covert and people just thought he was a lucky bastard that stopped losing hair or found some magic potion.

He certainly looks much better and is probably very happy with the results.  Thanks for the post.
