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?

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.

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.
