Below are pre-op and post-op photo comparisons that depict a 24-month result of class 4, potential class 5 patient who desired an overall thicker front via CIT (Cole Isolation Technique), a non-strip hair transplant method. The patient has medium-fine, wavy hair and slightly above average donor density of about 200 hairs per square centimeter, with 180 hairs/cm2 being about the average. Dr. Cole's treatment plan was to strategically transfer about 2500 CIT grafts to the front in order to minimize shock loss. Shock loss is usually a temporary condition that generally occurs when pre-existing hair is shed due to trauma from newly transplanted follicles. For most patients, shock loss is catastrophic and can cause significant inconvenience for at least a couple of months after a hair restoration procedure.
