This class 3 patient came to us in the summer of 07’. The patient’s goal in hair restoration was to add density to the frontal scalp via CIT. The patient has light brown hair with slightly above average donor density of 198 hairs per square centimeter. Dr. Cole’s treatment plan for this patient was to transfer 2040 grafts over two passes and administration of finasteride to be taken orally, with or without food, usually once a day, or as directed.
Below are photos that depict the 4th and 12th month post-op results in the recipient area. 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. It is imperative to remember that more that one session may be required to achieve an individual’s goals.
