1600 CIT on class 5 patient at 12 months post-op

Icon Post Targetby CITness » Thu Oct 30, 2008 10:17 am

Here is a potential class 5 patient who received 1600 CIT grafts. The patient has straight, medium fine hair with average donor density (180 hairs per square centimeter). The patient's goal was to add density to the appearance of the frontal scalp. Dr. Cole's treatment plan for this patient was to conservatively transplant the CIT grafts to the top and frontal third. Medical therapy was also in the plan to treat the patient.

The photos shown below depict this patient's progress at 24 months post-op. A dramatic change in the appearance of the frontal scalp has been achieved by adding such a small amount CIT grafts. With CIT, there is no linear scarring associated with strip hair transplant method (FUT). No clinic can guarantee that a surgery is 100% scar free but there are less invasive methods to harvest a donor area. The patient is very excited about the new natural looking growth and the boost of confidence.

Hi,
I'm interested in this less is more approach. I'm wondering if this kind of result would be achievable for someone with NW5 and possible NW6, using more grafts? If not would BHT made a difference?

Yes... it can be achieved if you have the donor resources... if not... then you would have to be satisfied with just doing the frontal 3rd and top

All you need is to look more closely, the before photos are there...it is clearly an improvement from his pre-op photos...all the empty spots have been covered nicely. Now, it looks like he is a guy with hair that shaved his head with almost no thinning areas. That is what we mean in "Less is more"
