Dr. Mwamba – 2579 FIT to the frontal third, 9 month results (Hair Transplant)

Dr. Mwamba, Brussels IHTI – 2579 FIT to the frontal third, 9 month results

This 25 year old patient came to our IHTI European branch in Brussels, Belgium after his hair loss was triggered by chemotherapy. The chemotherapy treatments caused all of his hair to fall out. According to the Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research, “Fortunately, most of the time hair loss from chemotherapy is temporary. You can expect to regrow a full head of hair six months to a year after you stop treatment, though your hair may temporarily be a different shade or texture….It takes about four to six weeks for your hair to recover from chemotherapy. In general, you can expect about a quarter inch of growth each month…”

Following the successful completion of chemotherapy treatments, this patient did grow his hair back. Unfortunately, it came back as a Norwood Class IV or V, rather than his previous full head of hair. The chemotherapy caused acceleration in his natural hair loss progression.

When the patient contacted our office, he had been on Proscar for a little over one year and had gone 1 ½ years with stabilized hair loss (no loss or gain).

This patient had fine hairs on top and in his donor as well. Although his hair was fine and wispy, it provides decent coverage with what density he had, as seen by wet and dry pictures. By using FIT, we picked the strongest hairs to build his frontal core to give the impression of fullness. A mature, 7 cm hairline was utilized, rather than aggressive, to frame his face and conserve his donor as his family history indicated possible future loss. Hopefully, the medications can stabilize his loss, but if he needs a touch up surgery in the future, less grafts will be needed to match the current transplanted density. The total graft count came to 2579 grafts.

The patient has added Rogaine and HairCycle products to his hair care regimen to stabilize loss, thicken existing hairs, and to promote the best possible hair and scalp health.

We are very pleased with the natural appearance and density achieved. The patient is happy and told us that even his barber didn't notice he had it done. Congratulations!
