First off, the patient is 39 years old, we are same age in fact.
Obviously we informed him that using these grafts in the crown will decrease the numbers of grafts available for possible frontal thinning. He has only slight thinning in the front areas.
Some patients are just ‘crown minded’. These type of patients rather have a full crown and leave the top and front blank. If they are properly informed about the work and the effect on future procedure then we are willing to go forward if they insist.
He started using propecia on our request.
Luckely he has an excellent donor area, he has at least 2000-3000 grafts left in his hair bank.
