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.
Started taking Finasteride 1mg after the surgery. Treatment currently suspended.
Medium caliber hair.
Normal follicular units.
High % of hair in telogen phase.
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.
519 Single FUT grafts

Total number of Hair: 7681
