1300 on Norwood III - scar revision + CIT


#1

This particular class III patient desired to obtain natural looking coverage in the frontal hair line and frontotemporal recessions. The patient has an above average hair density of 200 hairs per square centimeter with 180 being about average. The patient also has slightly wavy, dark brown hair which provides more coverage value than if it were straighter hair. Slightly wavy hair ultimately reserves the donor resources if needed at a later date.

Based on the expectations of the patient, Dr. Cole’s treatment plan was to perform a scar revision to improve the patient’s linear scar from a previous surgery in the 90’s and transfer 1300 single and two-hair follicular units to the recipient area. Rebuilding the hair line and achieving the patient’s goals were simple tasks for our team thanks to CIT instrumentation. Generally speaking, formation of a hair line requires complete attention to detail as the basis of the procedure is to mimic a naturally appearing frontal scalp. Many individuals believe that the hair line is the first feature noticed besides the eyebrows. Many patients who desire a much thicker look are given the risk associated with transplanting at higher densities and understand that future hair loss may occur at any time in the future. Please remember that more that one session may be required to achieve an individual’s goals.

Below is a video of a class III patient who underwent a small CIT session with a scar revision. Single hair and two-hair follicular unit grafts were mostly used to create the soft yet densely populated hair line suitable for the patient who is approximately 45 - 50 years of age. The result of this case is yet another stunning example of artistry to appreciate. Please accept my apology for the pre-op photos. A special thanks goes out to this patient for sharing his quality results with the hair transplant community.

Sorry Therapy. The after photos were not documented. Revisions usually can improve the scar about 50% better. Unless I get some emailed photos in a couple of weeks or months, this patient won’t be coming back any time soon. :frowning:

He did not look NW3, I mean he obviously was thin in NW3 area but far from bald there.

How many grafts were placed there in his previous operations?

Seriously, we have guys who need hair and guys who want hair. Lucky him, he only want more hair. Must be a model or something. I must give proper respect so I do like the work very much. Maybe he has a hair fetish or really is in the public eye! I am a tiny bit jealous…:smiley:

The work is very good but I don’t think he was a nrwood III. No doctor can give a norwood III a full head of hair using only 1300 grafts.

The approach is to establish a more mature hair line then lower or dense pack it for the most appealing final result. In this case, the patient wasn’t too old and the risk was less in consideration of his hair line receeding to such a point where is would look unnatural. Nevertheless, the patient is satisfied with the new growth and the hair style shows the achieved result very well.
