“I don’t have to wear a hat anymore.” This is what we love to hear.
This young man came to us hoping to stop his frontal hairline recession and restore areas with little to no hair remaining. In the before photo you’ll notice some markings that were created during this gentlemen’s pre-operative appointment. These sections show where the grafts will ultimately be placed, but also act as a guide to determine 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐭𝐲𝐩𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐟𝐭 we are using. The area at the front (closest to the eyebrows) is where single follicular units will be placed. This means a graft that will only ever grow one single hair at a time. Something you may not know is that some hair follicles contain multiple roots, as many as four. These grafts tend to naturally grow behind the frontal hairline and around the edges of the hair. It’s simply how mother nature designed our hair and to give someone a natural looking result we must follow her lead. The second area back is where doubles and triples will be placed with the final sections containing only triple and quadruple grafts.
I want to thank this gentleman for allowing us to share his fantastic results. We love having the opportunity to show Dr. Sharma’s handy-work while educating our future patients with real results.
