Here is a patient of mine who is a norwood 6 (severe for of hair loss) with very fine straight hair. As I have previously discussed fine straight hair will give a completely different amount of cosmetic density in comparison to coarse curly hair (which is the best and most ideal for greatest cosmetic density).
The patient was looking to frame his hairline with hair and create as much density as possible over the frontal and mid scalp, while having FUE to preserve the option to cut the hair on the sides and back very short and avoid a linear scar.
His results are shown below after 2 procedures and a total of 2663 grafts. We are going to do an additional procedure to increase the density, but there is already a huge difference between the pre op photos and the current photos.
It can be described as turning him from someone who is perceived as bald, to someone who is perceived as having a thinning receding hairline, which is a big difference in look and perception.
All the best,
Marc Dauer, M.D.
