Surgery by: Dr. Victor Hasson
Surgery Type: FUT
Norwood Scale: 4
Number of Grafts: 6542
This patient from Liverpool, UK was approaching his 40th birthday and decided as a birthday present to himself he would give himself a new look for this new decade in his life. After talking to his local barber back home in the UK (who cuts the hair of a previous patient of ours) he decided to contact the clinic. Probably the highest compliment a clinic can receive is a recommendation from a barber 4700 miles away.
He submitted his photos like so many others through our online consultation form looking for hair restoration surgery. He was fed up with his appearance making him look older than he actually was and with how limiting his hairline was when it came to styling and of course getting his hair cut.
He traveled to Vancouver to have hair transplant surgery with Dr Victor Hasson during the summer of 2014. In one megasession Dr Hasson was able to transplant 6542 grafts to cover the entire scalp to fulfill (and exceed) his goals. He recently posted:
The results have been phenomenal. Not only do I have a thick full head of hair again, I look years younger, and the procedure has been a life changing experience. I really cannot justify with words how amazing this procedure has been for me, it has been the best choice I have ever made.
I now at 40, have the thick full head of hair I had in my twenties. It feels amazing. Some people who haven’t seen me in months, double take me, they are amazed at how wonderful my new hair looks.
Sessions of this size are rarely seen by other hair transplant clinics but when the stars align and the density and laxity are both above average then a session of this size can be possible at Hasson & Wong.
Dr Hasson dense packed the hairline to provide the patient with an age appropriate, but more youthful, hairline. As you can see from the photos he now has styling options that were just a pipe dream before his surgery. Grafts were placed to a lesser degree throughout the mid scalp and into the crown. The patient had the hair characteristics with above average hair density and laxity and hair texture and Dr Hasson did what he has done so many times before by delivering a fantastic transformation.
Graft breakdown: Singles 1619, Doubles 4453, multiples 470.
The strip length was 38cm which indicated a larger than average size of head, hence the need to use the large number of grafts. The patient started Proscar at the time of surgery.
