Norwood 7 Hair Restoration – 59 year old – 3,700 Grafts
A new entry has just been added to Modena’s male hair loss success stories!
Diagnosis: FUE transplant – Age: 59 – Sex: Male – Grafs: 3,700
In another outstanding display of skill and aesthetic expertise Dr. Yazdan has engineered a new hairline. The patient, a 59 year old Male was suffering from extensive hair loss. His condition was classified as a 7 on the Norwood scale. The Norwood scale has been used by physicians since the 1950s to classify the severity of Male Pattern Baldness with 1 being the earliest visible signs of hair thinning and 7 representing the most advanced levels of hair loss. However, our patient’s Norwood number proved no obstacle to Dr. Yazdan who by skilled application of both FUE and FUT techniques, reconstructed an entirely new hairline!
FUE and FUT are the two most common methods for performing a hair transplant and may be performed either individually or together depending on the patient’s needs. The processes involve:
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) – In FUE individual hair follicles are removed from a donor area of the scalp and are transplanted to the area in need. No stitches or sutures are required for this minimally invasive procedure.
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) – In FUT a strip of scalp tissue is removed from the donor area. The scalp tissue is then separated into individual grafts for the needed areas of the scalp
