Nice transplant result! Does he plan on having surgery to the crown now he's seen how good the rest looks?

Thank you @reddwarf for your message. Yes. The initial plan was to delay the crown given his age and the advanced loss pattern. It was anticipated that he may need most of the grafts to the front and mid section. Nonetheless, he is opting to add some density to the crown after the final results of this transplant.

Thanks @reddwarf. This patient had a good hairs/follicle ration and a good hair calibre, so we were able to good very good coverage and density with under 2500 grafts. His donor looks good and I expect at least 3500-4000 still left in reserve. I also kept a 1.5 cm area in the mid donor area were we did not extract from (virgin donor) for any future FUT in case he decided to go for it.
