PATIENT'S DETAILS

40 years old, NW V, with a hair loss history in his family.

✓ Had a small procedure in 1997.

No medications.

Medium hair.

Normal follicular units.

Low % of hair in telogen phase.




RECOMMENDED TREATMENT

When we performed the surgery the patient was 40 years old.
15 years ago, he had performed a small intervention (more or less 50 grafts were transferred).

First of all, I removed more or less 30 grafts.
One month later, we decided to perform a surgery with the FUT technique because there was already a scar in the donor area.

Thanks to a good elasticity and a good density the number of grafts placed was important: 4060 grafts for 9778 hair.

The situation at 6 months was encouraging. At 9, it was very good and 5 years after the surgery the density is still apparently important.

This case perfectly shows how a well performed hair transplant and a "strategic" hairstyle can hide an important baldness for years.

The patient would like to undergo a second procedure in the future to restore his vertex, and we'll not hesitate to update this post in this case.

Top result for 4000 grafts.

Dr Devroye how many grafts will be needed to fill in this gentlemen crown. For his 3rd op, whats best for him FUE or FUT?

Hey FUE

IMO I would say about 2500-3000 grafts for his crown. That's alot of grafts eaten up just here.

Thanks for your comment fuehair.

Probably 2000 grafts would be sufficient to hide the empty area.

As Danny rightly states, the crown is a barren area. Since hair grows in a spiral pattern, you should ideally reach a higher density compared to the front. The reason is the lower coverage obtained because of hair divergent directions. It is often necessary to adopt a conservative approach, that means not overloading the crown in order to keep a quantity of grafts in the donor area which will be sufficient for a potential, future procedure.

Concerning the technique, in this gentlemen case it will be discussed at the moment of his pre-operative consultation, according to his current donor conditions.
