This blog post details the hair restoration results achieved by a patient at HRBR over the course of seven years. When our patients come to us to discuss their hair loss they often start out the hair restoration process with medical treatment before undergoing surgery, as was the case with this patient.
Hair Restoration Results – Patient Profile
Patient: 61 year old male
Attending HRBR since: 2010

Hair Transplant Surgery – Results
The patient has had two hair transplant procedures at HRBR.
Aim of Hair Transplant Surgery: Following consultation with the patient it was agreed that the primary goal of the hair transplant surgery was to provide coverage over the top of the scalp and to reinforce the patient’s hairline.

Scarring after Hair Transplant Surgery
This patient underwent two FUT hair transplants at HRBR. Our skilled hair transplant surgeons were able to remove the original linear scar during the second surgery and leave the patient with a single linear scar measuring just 1mm in width.
It’s important to remember that scar free surgery is not possible, regardless of whether you choose the FUT or FUE method of hair transplant surgery.

Hair Restoration Results – Conclusion
The patient’s friends and colleagues are not aware he has had a hair transplant but do tell him he is looking well, he looks healthy, has lost weight and looks younger.
Our patient has given permission for his photographs to be used to assist other patients, as he is very pleased with the results of both his surgery and medical treatment. He continues to be monitored at HRBR on an annual basis.
