PANINE, MD | CHICAGO HAIR TRANSPLANT CLINIC - FUE Patient Results

This gentleman was a class 3 prior to his hair restoration surgery. He came to me in 2013 wanting to rebuild his hairline and add density to the frontal 1/2 of his head. He elected to go with a FUE procedure. He had previously had a small procedure of around 600 FUE grafts.  His goal was to be very conservative and rebuild his hairline as well as add more density to the frontal 1/3. We did 2,200 grafts in 2013 and his results turned out so good that he decided he wanted to get more density in 2016, so we did another 1,600 grafts. These are his results 1 year after his 1st procedure and 14 months after his 2nd procedure.  The patient is extremely happy.

Dr. Panine - Chicago Hair Transplant Clinic - 2,539 grafts - 7 Months Post-Op

This 27 year old gentleman had a hair loss pattern similar to a class 3 on the Hamilton Norwood hair loss scale. After establishing his medical history and understanding the progression of his hair loss, I diagnosed his condition as Androgenetic Alopecia (male pattern baldness), ruling out any other possible dermatological or medical conditions which can cause hair loss. The patient’s goal was to be able rebuild his hairline and bring his temples down slightly. His goal was well suited to his needs and therefore I planned the surgery accordingly. I paid careful attention to the hairline so I could reconstruct a hairline that would be suitable for his current age but also look good as he advances in age.

A total of 2,539 grafts were used. The break down was as follows: 918 single hair grafts and 1,621 two hair grafts. I used a significant amount of single hair follicular units which allowed me to create a very natural hairline. This action will allow him to comb his hair without anyone detecting that he has had anything done.

These are his results 7 months post-op. There will continue to be more improvement over the next few months. The patient is extremely happy with his result and is taking Finasteride 1mg to control further hair loss. He does understand that he might need an addition procedure if he would like to add more density or has any further hair loss down the road.

Dr. Panine - Chicago Hair Transplant Clinic - 3,981 grafts @ 10 Months Post-Op

This 34 year old gentleman had a hair loss pattern similar to a class 4v on the Hamilton Norwood hair loss scale. His goal was simple; rebuild his hairline and add density to the frontal 1/2. That said, he also wanted to be able to keep his hair short without anyone detecting that he had a procedure done.
I explained to him that he would have a dramatic result and his overall goals could be accomplished after one procedure. I also explained that if he wanted more density in the back ? he would need another procedure.

After establishing his medical history and understanding the progression of his hair loss, I diagnosed his condition as Androgenetic Alopecia (male pattern baldness), ruling out any other possible dermatological or medical conditions which can cause hair loss. During the discussion with the patient regarding his surgery I conveyed to him that my intent was to reconstruct a hairline that would be suitable for him now, but also something that will look good as he gets older. This is a critical issue which needs to be discussed when planning any work on the hairline.

A total of 3,981 grafts were used. The break down was as follows: 1,307 single hair grafts, 2,652 two hair grafts and 22 three hair grafts.

I used significantly more single hair follicular units which allowed me to create a very natural hairline. A natural hairline is essential in making a patient happy; it gives them confidence. When a patient has undergone a surgery they need to feel comfortable combing their hair/styling their hair in front of others as well as undertaking water sports or swimming around other people. A natural hairline cements this feeling of comfort and allows patients to experience a more carefree lifestyle.

These are the patient’s results 10 months post-op. There will continue to be more improvement over the next few months. As I’m sure you’ve gathered, the patient is extremely happy with his results.

Dr. Panine - Chicago Hair Transplant Clinic - 4,428 grafts

This 33 year old gentleman had a hair loss pattern similar to a class 5. After establishing his medical history and understanding the progression of his hair loss, I diagnosed his condition as Androgenetic Alopecia (male pattern baldness), ruling out any other possible dermatological or medical conditions which can cause hair loss. The patient’s goal was to get as much coverage as possible while maintaining a natural hairline. I explained to him that he was going to need two sessions to reach his goal. However, after one procedure he would have a dramatic change; a natural hairline and good density into the frontal ? of his scalp. When reconstructing the hairline I kept in mind what would be suitable for him now as well as something that will look good as he gets older; a key part of making the hairline look natural.
A total of 4,428 grafts were used. The break down was as follows: 1,398 single hair grafts and 3,030 two hair grafts. I used significantly more single hair follicular units which also allowed me to create a very natural hairline; an action that will allow him to comb his hair back without anyone detecting that he has had anything done.
These are the results of this FIRST procedure 9 months post-op. There will continue to be more improvement over the next few months. The patient is extremely happy with the results of his initial procedure and is planning on having a second procedure completed sometime next year.
