Hey BN,

Just the planting phase took about 6 hours. Dr. Ron making all those incisions took quite awhile too so planting began around 2pm. I believe the patient didn't get done until around 8:30pm. It's a long day but the patient had very very good laxity and he certainly could have used even more grafts. He knew he'd need multiple sessions to get to where he'd be satisfied. Fortunately, he tolerated the surgery well and the day didn't seem all that long for him. These are the type of cases that are suited for mega sessions, imo.

The work looks great.

With his existing hair this should produce an excellent result.

Janna is the patient on meds to help him keep his existing hair and maybe strengthen the crown area.

Thanks bm.
