This patient had grade 3 baldness affecting only the frontal area. He also had a congenitally broad forehead and was looking for options to improve his hairline.
In this patient, both FUT & FUE surgery were possible. The hair loss had been gradual and was currently stabilized even without any medication. The patient wanted more dense looks in the frontal area.
As the hair loss was not rapidly progressive and the donor area was good, we decided to go for FUE surgery. In fact, we did the most advanced version of FUE for him called DSFT or direct stimulated follicular transplant. In FUE, we have an option to extract multi-hair grafts specifically, So, the same number of grafts give more density as compared to FUT. These grafts have less fat tissue which makes these grafts less chubby so they are easier to fit in a smaller space more densely.
The patient did not want to shave off his head to minimize social downtime. So, the surgery was done without shaving off the recipient area. He was able to cover his head from the frontal area and in the donor area trimming was done and it got covered within a week’s time. As you can see in the one week post-op pictures, he was able to cover the grafted area nicely.
Because of the broad forehead, the temple areas needed attention and were addressed accordingly. Temple creation is an important part of hairline designing which many people tend to ignore.
His 8 month’s pictures show beautiful growth which looks absolutely
stunning and perfectly suits the personality of the patient. This is what you get when science meets art, compassion meets passion and skills meet honesty.
