Patient SPB had plugs transplanted too low on his frontal hairline. The surgery was performed in England many years ago and since that time SPB wore a hairpiece in public. Prior to the first hair transplant session, I excised 22 of the most visible large grafts. I then transplanted 2,853 follicular units (with the results shown in the after first session photo). Just before his second hair restoration session I excised an additional six plugs, removed some pitting and transplanted an additional 1,923 follicular unit grafts. A third session was performed using an additional 1,141 grafts. The results, after three hair transplants totaling 5,917 follicular unit grafts, are shown in the photos that were recently taken by the patient and sent to us from England. This patient’s hair transplant procedure was televised and he was featured with Dr. Bernstein on “Good Morning America.” He has also written a letter to Dr. Bernstein which we have posted on our Letters from Patients page.
