This patient is his 20’s from Italy started losing his hair at a very early age. In an attempt to regain his youthful appearance he turned to artificial hair implants. As we have presented in the past, this solution is not a good choice for the long term. The foreign body represented by the artificial hair creates inflammation and can lead to infection in the area.
You can see some irregularity of the skin as a result of the implants in one of the pre-op photos. Once the artificial hairs are removed, the skin can heal and transplanting into those areas has been proven to be quite successful as is the case here. When he sought out help from Dr. Hasson, fortunately he had a nice supply of donor hair. As with any other patient with this degree of hair loss and donor supply, Dr. Hasson rebuild a new hairline and frontal zone working into the mid scalp as far back as necessary. The priority of course was the front and top.
No grafts were placed in the crown, this area was left to medication. He started Proscar at the time of his surgery. This result is approximately 15 months post-op.
The post op photos were taken when the patient came to meet Dr Hasson in Italy and not at our clinic.
