This patient had a previous transplant at another clinic prior to visiting SMG. He was happy with his pattern but wanted more density in the frontal 1/2 of his scalp. I was limited in the amount of donor I could remove because he has poor donor density, a tight scalp, and had some scar stretch from his first transplant. I ended up getting 2087 grafts. He is two years out from surgery and is happy with his the density in the frontal ½ of his scalp.

His graft count is as follows:

1 Hair FU - 669

2 Hair FU - 1109

3 Hair FU - 246

4 Hair FU €“ 63

Total FU €“ 2087

Total Hairs €“ 3877

Thanks for the positive comments.

We do plan to address the balding in his crown. Because of his poor donor density and poor laxity, even with stretching exercise I do not think we can get more then 2,000 FU. So the goal will be to shrink the crown
