Giuseppe’s Crown Density (Case Study)
Giuseppe, 32, Las Vegas resident and assistant manager at a hotel on the strip, came to Modena Hair Institute for his second hair transplant.
Like our previous patients, Giuseppe, needed further work to stem his hair loss.
Our pictures show how we transformed Giuseppe’s Crown with 1,611 grafts (3,237 individual hairs) moved from the back of his scalp to the front.
He is pictured before and after the procedure, carried out by our board certified hair restoration surgeon Dr. Amir Yazdan.
Men like Elon Musk inspired Giuseppe to have a second operation. He said: “It is fact of life that hair loss is a continuous process. While the hair transplanted in my previous operation is permanent, I am continuing to lose my natural hair. I had the second procedure because I was so pleased with the first one and how it helped to boost my confidence and work opportunities. Once again, I have a much fuller hairline and the whole front of my scalp looks so much better.”
“The operation gives me a lot more flexibility with my hair. I can continue to wear it spiked up.”
Giuseppe, who has been losing his hair since he was 23, said there was no longer a stigma attached to men seeking hair transplants.
He said: “Stars like Elon Musk and Matthew McConaughey have made a big difference. Drugs like Propecia can halt future hair loss but they won’t help to grow new hair. The only way to keep my hair as I want it is through having hair transplants.”

He shared that losing his hair had hit his confidence. “You worry when you go on dates, women are looking at your receding hairline. It’s a distraction you don’t need and, thankfully, one that can be remedied by a transplant”.
Giuseppe had his second transplant in October 2022, just over a year after his first procedure. It will take between six months and a year for the new hair to fully grow back.
Dr. Yazdan said Giuseppe had the same Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant technique as McConaughey and David Beckham, where individual follicles are taken from the back or the side of the scalp and replanted at the front.
Dr. Yazdan said: “What we’ve noticed in the last five years is that the age of our patients is coming down all the time. The fact is a third of men suffer hair loss by the time they are 30.”
More of them are deciding to have transplants immediately rather than waiting until middle age.
Why suffer 20 years with a loss of confidence if you can fix the problem now? For people who have an active social or romantic life, their image is vital.
“A simple procedure such as a hair transplant can make an enormous difference to a man’s life.”
