This 33 year old male came in for his 6 month pos op exam. The area of balding I covered is about 100 sq.cm. I was hoping to get 3,500 to 4,000 grafts. Unfortunately his donor skin was tight and his donor density was about 75 FU/sqcm which is below average. I first took out a donor strip that was 1.6 cm wide but the closure was tight and I had to decrease the width of his donor strip to 1.4 cm wide. His donor did yield 3118 grafts and fortunately he had a good percentage of 3 and 4 hair grafts to place in and behind the central core area. At 6 months he is looking good and very happy with his results, but I expect to see more growth over the next 6 months. Hopefully he will come in for a one year follow up and I can post more photos.
His graft and hair breakdown is as follows:
1 s 466
2 s 1871
3 s - 677
4 s - 104
Total grafts 3118/Total hairs 6655
