This Vancouver area patient in his late 30’s approached Hasson and Wong in hopes of restoring his frontal zone, mid-scalp crown. Hair loss runs in the family as his uncle and his grandad’s brother also suffered substantial hair loss. Possessing similar genetics as these relatives for male pattern hair loss, this patient fell victim himself but took the path of trying to do something about it instead. He began to lose his hair in his mid to late 20’s and tried Rogaine as a solution but found little success. He needed to do more if he wanted to get results he was hoping for and dramatically change his appearance. Transforming a class 5A-6 for male pattern baldness can be no easy task. Very few if any other clinics can achieve a result of this magnitude with all the necessary boxes checked. Thankfully for him he decided to do some research online and eventually met with Dr. Hasson to discuss his opinions and get a good idea of what could be accomplished.
This procedure was a typical 2 day process as is the case for most FUE procedures of 3,000 grafts or more. Day one resulted in a graft count of 2609 with day 2 yielding 2246 grafts making the total FUE count 4855. For the day 1 procedure, 300 were singles hair grafts, 1826 were doubles and 483 were 3-4 hair grafts. The day 2 procedure consisted of 1569 doubles and 677 3-4’s hair grafts. To rebuild a hairline, usually around 300 single hair grafts are required to create the most natural looking result. For work in parts of the frontal zone, mid-scalp and crown, the more double and 3-4 hair grafts, the better the density and volume. Only larger hair grafts are carefully selected for these areas. With FUE, we can select only the type of grafts we need for a particular case. To execute this result while still leaving the donor area virtually pristine is no easy task but Dr. Hasson and his highly qualified staff are always up for the challenge. The end result was a major success and the patient was very happy with the outcome. So happy that he has asked us to put him online to share his result for other perspective patients to evaluate.
