PATIENT'S DETAILS


œ“ 31 years old, NW IVa, losing hair since the age of 24. Hair loss stabilized since two years. No available data about his family hair loss history.

œ“ Started taking Finasteride 1mg after the surgery. Treatment currently suspended.

œ“ Medium caliber hair.

œ“ Normal follicular units.

œ“ High % of hair in telogen phase.



RECOMMENDED TREATMENT

This 31-year-old patient presented with a NW IVa hair loss degree: an almost completely bald anterior area, a thinning mid-scalp and obvious signals of loss in the vertex area.

We agreed upon performing an FUT procedure of approximately 3500 grafts in order to rebuild his hairline and cover his frontal and midscalp areas - leaving the vertex untouched for a potential, second procedure.
The proposed hairline, slightly conservative and drawn following the patient's original one, will guarantee a suitable look also in the long-term.

In January 2018, the patient eventually received 3757 FUT grafts. The 3rd and 5th post-op month pictures show an early regrowth and already remarkable improvements.
During the next 7 moths we expect the results to further improve, especially regarding the hair density and texture.

As usual, we'll not hesitate to update this case as soon as new photographic material will be available.


SURGERY DETAILS

œ“ 3757 grafts

œ“ Technique: FUT

œ“ Incisions: 40-45/cm2

œ“ Grafts Breakdown:
˜ž 519 Single FUT grafts
˜ž 2573 Double FUT grafts
˜ž 644 Triple FUT grafts
˜ž 21 Quadruple FUT grafts

œ“ Total number of Hair: 7681

œ“ Average Hair/Graft: 2.04

Very nice result so far. He's got a good amount of triples with favourable curly hair. Brave of the patient to shave his whole head considering the stitches. Really like the hairline design and post op pics the recipient area looks very clean, similar to our patients. Would you have used the WAW implanters on this case?

Thanks for your comments Janna.

We use the WAW implanters mainly during FUE procedures, to implant exclusively two or more hair grafts.
For one-hair grafts we use the Choi implanters, during both FUE and FUT procedures.

The patient came to my office for a check-up consultation in March 2019, one year and two months after the surgery. At that time, the patient expressed his wish to undergo a second procedure in order to perfect his hairline and increase his frontal and midscalp density.

At the end of May 2019, a FUE consisting of 2138 grafts was performed. Please find below the photos showing the results of the first FUT surgery at +12 (sent in by the patient),+14 and +16 months, as well as the details and pictures of this second FUE procedure.



SURGERY DETAILS

2138 grafts

Technique: FUE

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.

Grafts Breakdown:

☞ 438 Single FUE grafts
☞ 968 Double FUE grafts
☞ 708 Triple FUE grafts
☞ 24 Quadruple FUE grafts

Total number of Hair: 4594

Average Hair/Graft: 2.14
