This patient is a 38 year old male who had a hair transplant several years ago at another location. He was very disappointed for two reasons: the density that was achieved was not near what was promised, and secondly, the hairline design was too aggressive. With a frontal hairline repair in mind, his main goal was to increase the density in the frontal half of the scalp, make the frontal hairline more natural, and address the crown at a later date. 2490 follicular grafts were placed 5-months ago into the frontal half of the scalp.
The photos are 5 – months after surgery which demonstrates excellent growth of the transplanted hairs. He is using Topix on the crown, but there was no Topix in the frontal half of his scalp.
This patient from the Los Angeles area desired to have his hairline and frontal area of his scalp transplanted to restore his hair in those areas.
3655 follicular unit grafts were transplanted into the frontal hairline region in one session. The photographs demonstrate his appearance before the transplant and at his one-year follow up visit. Additionally, we included close-up photographs of the hairline and transplanted area in the frontal region of the scalp.
The patient is on finasteride and minoxidil which are helping to maintain his natural hair – in fact, he has had an excellent response to the medications which have thickened his hair. The patient is very active in sports and is extremely satisfied with the results he has obtained as he feels he has gained a more youthful appearance by framing his face with the transplanted hairs and boosted his overall confidence.
