Class 5 with poor donor – 4900 FUE Grafts – Before and after 3 years – HDC hair Clinic



Valued member
This is a class 5 patient who wanted to fill up his thinning areas with a hair transplant having a poor donor.
HDC performed a total of 4900 FUE grafts in two Surgeries.
The first one was in 2015 and the 2nd one on November 2017.
The limitation of this particular patient was that his donor was not good especially on the sides. HDC Hair clinic explained the limitations to the patient and discussed that the expected result should be in accordance to his donor. Also, the patient was put on Propecia and Minoxidil to avoid further hair loss. Fortunately, he did not have an aggressive history of Hair loss.
Half of the hair transplant result is how the hair grows on the recipient and the other half is how the donor is managed.
You can see the result.

4 awesome repairs with SMG
Big improvement. What options does he have left in terms of available donor if he decides to address the crown? ( not that he needs to as the improvement is superb anyway)
