â 27 years old, NW IV, losing hair since the age of 21, with a hair loss history in his family (brother, same condition).
â Had taken Minoxidil 5% during 2 years when he was 23, then stopped because of side effects (palpitations).
Has started again the treatment approximately 1 month before undergoing the surgery.
â Medium caliber hair.
â Normal follicular units.
â High % of hair in telogen phase.
Despite the quite advanced and aggressive hair loss the patient suffered (NW IV stage, heading to NW VI),he presented a very rich donor area that made him a suitable candidate both for FUT or FUE procedure.
Given that the patient didn't like the idea to get a permanent linear scar in his donor zone, we decided to perform an FUE procedure.
In September '17, 3444 FUE grafts were harvested and implanted during two consecutive days in order to rebuild his hairline and cover the frontal and midscalp areas.
The patient submitted then the pictures we display below, showing his progress two weeks, three, four, six and eight months after the surgery.
He is very satisfied about the outcome and we hope to have the opportunity to welcome him at the clinic in the next coming months to update this thread with his final results.
â 3444 grafts
â Technique: FUE
â 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.
â Incisions: 35-40/cm2
â Grafts Breakdown:
â 856 Single FUE grafts
â 1646 Double FUE grafts
â 927 Triple FUE grafts
â 15 Quadruple FUE grafts
â Total number of Hair: 6989
â Average Hair/Graft: 2.03
