FUE by Dr. Reddy - Norwood 6 hairloss, 4703 grafts, 11273 hair


#1

This 32 year old gentleman presented to us with a Norwood 6 hairloss pattern. He had done extensive research and had ruled out FUT as he was not keen on having a scar. He understood that his options were limited to either having a high hairline or poor density.

He chose to go with a high hairline. Dr Reddy qualified him for an FUE as he had a tight scalp and a reasonable donor area.

Dr Reddy was able to extract 4703 grafts over 2 days using a 1.00 mm punch. Acell was extensively used for the donor and recipient areas. He was prescribed Propecia to thicken his crown hair.

Immediately after:


1 week after - note the lack of redness and healing of the donor area:

how is that possible with just 4700 grafts?

I agree, looks too thick to be just 4700. Maybe we need to see in better lighting.

He’s not a NW6. He’s a NW5A with a crown that is thinning but not bald. If you look at the placement, very few grafts were put into the crown, maybe 200 at most and even then they were put in the top of the crown near the vertex. With the hair grown longer in the crown for the after photos it looks like the crown thickened from the surgery but in reality, it did not. It is virtually unchanged as 95% of the grafts were placed in the front, from the vertex forward.

I probably have to agree with you on that. Dr Reddy placed a few grafts on the crown strategically. But he believes that it’s the client’s religious use of Propecia that has contributed to the regeneration of hair on the crown rather than pure surgical restoration
