The day of surgery
We asked Paul some questions about the choices he made when he decided to have Hair Transplant Surgery and his experience throughout the day.
Paul’s post-operation video diary
Paul kept us updated for two weeks following his Hair Transplant Surgery.
Paul is a 32 year old gentleman who had noticed hair loss since 20 years of age. He presented with a typical history of male pattern hair loss and was interested in improving the appearance of the frontal half.
We discussed both the surgical and non surgical side of hair restoration. I advised Paul to consider starting Finasteride +- topical Minoxidil to preserve his existing hair and advised a FUE procedure to increase the density to the hairline, temples and behind the frontal tuft.
Paul subsequently started medication and we performed a mid size FUE procedure of 1729 grafts. For this case we used a 0.85mm punch. The breakdown of the 1729 grafts extracted was, 340 – 1 haired follicles, 917 – 2 haired follicles and 472 – 3 haired follicles. That is an average of 2.1 hairs per graft.
