Patient story 4

Surgery: Follicular Unit Excision (FUE)
Number of Grafts: 637
Another hair transplant success story! Here at The Treatment Rooms London we love sharing our patient’s success stories- especially after they have gone through a hair transplant.
A hair transplant doesn’t give you immediate results e.g. within days. As hairs have to be taken from one part of the scalp and re-implanted into another, the roots can take some time to grow. We tend to advise that the regrowth process takes at least 12- 18 months. So you can imagine our patients therefore have a huge amount of patience!

This friendly patient is often in the public eye. He takes part in body building competitions so he wanted his hair to fit his style. He was suffering from an early stage in male pattern baldness; receding in the temples and his frontal hairline.
In order to restore his hair to a hairline he wanted, the surgeons in our clinic agreed that he would benefit from an FUE hair transplant.
However, the key to a successful hair transplant was discussing how the patient wanted to style in his hair in the future. Our surgeons are able to implant hairs to match natural hair direction. This patient wanted to style his hair up, giving his hair fullness at the front. With this in mind, our surgeons had to carefully plan how many hairs would be required to give density and volume for this hair style.
Extraction of 637 grafts for implantation into the frontal hairline and temple region. This was carried out using the FUE (follicular unit excision) method in one session.
