Hair loss is something that can sneak up on us. At a certain point half-measures are not enough – that’s where an aggressive solution like hair transplant surgery comes in. As you’ll notice, this man’s forward hairline & midzone were starting to lose the fight. While hair fibers and other products could help to give the appearance of density, it was just a matter of time before that would no longer be enough. With a ‘medium’ sized hair transplant & DHT blocker medication we were able to give these areas the boost that they needed.
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.
Thank you to this gentleman for allowing us to share the early stages of his results. We can’t wait to see his progress at the one-year mark.
