This Norwood class 3 visited Dr. Rose and staff in early 2004 to rebuild his
hairline and address his temporal recessions. The pattern seen in the
pre-operative photos is common. The patient €™s temples are deep and nearly
meet toward his thinning mid-scalp, creating the appearance of an €œisolated
forelock € or €œpersistent tuft. €

Dr. Rose harvested 1,609 follicular units via the strip method with Ledge
closure. The photographs clearly show that the patient experienced marked
rapid healing in the recipient area post-surgery. This can be attributed to
the patient €™s individual healing tendency, as well as the minimally invasive
tools used for the recipient site incisions.

As shown in the post-operative photos at seven and a half months, the
patient benefited greatly from the transplant. Dr. Rose was able to build
flattering hairline and define the patient €™s face with a relatively small
number of grafts. Furthermore, since this operation was performed during the
time Dr. Rose was pioneering his Ledge donor closure technique, the patient
is able to wear his hair extremely short without exposing evidence of a
surgical scar.

This is a nice example of how a few grafts have made a great change in this patient and the closure is ideal enough that he is able to go as short as he has. Thanks for the post. Dr. Rose is certainly doing some nice work.

Nice result,those grafts have gone a long way and gave him a good frontal hairline/appearance.

Looking forward to seeing more results from Dr Rose.
