This class 3V patient came to us in the spring of this year. The patient’s goal was to add density to the frontal scalp and rebuild the hair line. The patient has brown hair with well above average donor density of 250 hairs per square centimeter with 180 hairs per square centimeter being about average. The patient was successfully treated with 1600 CIT grafts which allows the patient to avoid the linear scar associated with strip (FUT).
Below are photos that depict the results at just 6 months post-op. We expect this patient to see more results in the next couple of months. Generally speaking, there are many patients who desire a much thicker look and are taking the risks associated with transplanting at higher densities. We make our patients aware of the fact that future hair loss may occur at any time in the future. Time will tell if high densities are too aggressive in regard to future hair loss. It is imperative to remember that more than one session may be required to achieve an individual’s goals. This patient is very happy with the new growth and plans to conservatively fill-in the crown later this year.
