Paul’s Hair Transplant Surgery diary.

Paul is 32, lives in Oxfordshire and wanted to do something about his hair loss. We followed him through his day of surgery and post-op care to find out what it’s like from a patients’ point of view.

Why did you decide to have a hair transplant?

Christopher’s Comments

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.
