Thorough Evaluation

Thorough surgical evaluation involves collecting as much data as possible in addition to family history and patient expectations.

For example, we evaluated and treated this patient today. His cross sectional trichometry in his donor area was 89. The average is 69. He has loss confined to his frontal area. His hair diameter is 69. He is a NW 3A. He has 70 FU/ sqcm and 170 hairs per sqcm. He has 16415 total follicular units in his donor area.

We used a 0.85 mm punch to harvest his donor area. His transection rate was under 1%. He averaged 2.48 hairs per graft laterally and 2.8 hairs per hairs per graft centrally.

Based on his donor area characteristics, his expectations, and his surface area of loss, he is an excellent candidate for hair transplant surgery. We evaluate all of these characteristics prior to every procedure. This is how one can properly evaluate a patient for hair restoration surgery. Of course, it helps to have a family history, but at age 47, we don’t expect more significant hair loss in this patient.
