This case illustrates how a series of treatments over 9.5 years can be successful in keeping pace with progression of hair loss. When this patient had his first HT in 2000, he presented with a 3A hair loss pattern with recession in the hairline corners and behind the forelock €“ 200 singles, 200 doubles, and 317 triple hair FU €™s were transplanted.

After a year, the hair from his grafts grew in but further loss of native hair was evident behind and into the forelock €“ however, even having lost more hair, his transplants kept his appearance stable. In 2001, 200 singles, 412 doubles, and 477 triple FU €™s were placed in the hairline and front for added density.

After three years, with continued progression, only transplanted hair remained in the front and top. In 2004, 341 singles, 839 doubles, and 109 triple FU €™s were placed throughout the front, top, and crown. With noticeable thinning taking place in the vertex region, the patient started Propecia as well.

In 2009, still using Propecia, there was no remaining native hair throughout the balding pattern. His pattern was purely transplanted. With his three treatments totaling 3149 FU grafts consisting of 741 singles, 1451 doubles, and 957 triples, Dr. True left this patient with just one linear scar in the donor area.

This patient reported that one of the most satisfying aspects of his experience was that he went bald and had his hair restored without anyone but his wife knowing that he was losing hair or having treatment.

This is some very natural work and great documentation. Stated well--this guy went thru the hairloss stages without anyone knowing he was losing hair. He essentially looks similar (better in my opinion) to when he started everything yet he lost a lot of natural hair. Great case. The scar on the left is not the best I've seen but he has had a few procedures. Thanks for the post.

The normal cycle of hair growth lasts for 2 to 3 years. Each hair grows approximately 1 centimeter per month during this phase. About 90 percent of the hair on your scalp is growing at any one time. About 10 percent of the hair on your scalp, at any one time, is in a resting phase. After 3 to 4 months, the resting hair falls out and new hair starts to grow in its place.
