Case 4: Male 38, Norwood 6, Hair transplant and body hair transplant

The patient had very severe hair loss throughout the head. He had tried both Finasteride and Minoxidil without success.

An earlier FUE procedure had not provided enough coverage for the whole balding area and the patient was especially unhappy with the hairline. Dr Villnow proposed a treatment of 850 body hair grafts along with FUE grafts to bring the total amount of grafts up to 7350 – all FUE.

The photos below show the patient 12 months after the operation.

Case 9. Male, 38, Norwood 3 Hair Transplant

This 38 year old patient came to us with gradual hair loss in the front of his head.

The patient’s temples were especially affected and this was making him worry about how he looked.

The patient had tried Minoxidil which had had no effect on his hairline. Dr Villnow recommended a treatment with 2300 grafts using the follicular unit extraction method to focus on rebuilding his hairline. The two photos below are from ten months after the surgery.

Case 10: Male, 34, Norwood 6, Scalp and body hair transplant

A 34 year old male came to us with very extensive hair loss all over the head.

The patient had never taken medication and his hair loss had started in his early twenties and progressed rapidly. He had seen other doctors who had rejected his case because his donor area was too sparse. In the photo below you can see that the hairs on the back and sides of his head were not enough to cover the balding area.

Dr Villnow proposed a treatment with 3400 grafts from the scalp and as many grafts from the body as possible. The operation took place over three days. 800 grafts were taken from the body.

The body hair grafts were added to the scalp hair grafts to completely restore hair across the whole head, including hairline restoration.

The pictures below were taken 5 months after the operation.

Case 11: Male, 28, Beard restoration

This 28 year old male came to us looking for help with his beard hair. He had had difficulty growing a beard for many years.

Dr Villnow carried out a treatment of 1500 grafts FUE which he took from the back of the patient’s head.

For this specialist procedure, Dr Villnow was careful to use single-hair grafts to construct the beard. Making minute incisions into the face which are not visible to the eye, Dr Villnow completed this piece of surgically challenging work. The photos below show the patient after six months.
