Many of the results we share on the forums typically show the creation of youthful, dense and natural looking hairlines. This is great for certain patients who prove to be good candidates for this type of procedure however, some simply require coverage over density. The below patient is one such example.
Note: The patient took and sent us the below photo showing his results to date. While we are waiting to receive additional photos and/or schedule a visit for the patient to come in to take more, we thought we’d share what the patient sent us. He is very happy with his results.
This patient has undergone FUE hair transplant surgery with Dr. Rahal. He was 35 years of age at the time of the procedure and has been losing

Non-Surgical Hair Loss Solutions
This patient isn’t currently using Propecia (finasteride) nor Rogaine (minoxidil). He has had some skin sensitivity issues to Rogaine in the past and isn’t interested in taking finasteride for personal reasons.
Why This Patient Is a Good Candidate for Hair Transplant Surgery
Dr. Rahal felt this patient was a good candidate for surgery for several reasons.
- This patient’s hair loss pattern is already well established
- This patient’s family history of hair loss lines up with his already well established hair loss pattern
- The patient’s hair shaft diameter is on the thicker side
- The patient has good quality donor hair
- The patient’s expectations are realistic as to what can be achieved for this and subsequent procedures.

While Dr. Rahal can and does often perform larger sessions, given the patient particulars, it was decided it was better for the patient to come back for subsequent procedures if desired rather than do too much at once.
We look forward to your input.
