Discuss this patient on our Hair Restoration Forum

This is a 40 year old patient, for many years she was progressively thinning on the whole frontal area and on her temples.

She started an androcur treatment 5 years ago which has slightly improved the situation. It is almost certainly a genetic pattern since her grandmother suffered the same type of hair loss.

The indication is excellent, the donor area is rich. The strategy consists in reaching a maximum number of grafts, to place a large amount of FU1 (singles) for a blurry aspect of the frontal line. On the following lines, the density of incisions remained important and FU3 or FU4 grafts were used.  Thanks to the pairing (association into the same incision the 2 hair grafts) I managed to increase the hair density.
The patient's post-op was fine, without a hitch. The fall of the grafts was early and almost total. Then the regrowth occurred very quickly.

After 3 months only, we could already see the regrowth. The actual result is really early as it is a 6 months post-op. The aspect is already very natural. Hairs are still short but in a few months, the new hair will be perfectly integrated into the original hair. Moreover, the trichophytic closure made the scar unnoticeable.

Number of grafts 2500, Number of hair 5393 (2.16 Hair/graft).

FU1 552, FU2 1121, FU3 679, FU4 148
Surface covered 33.8 cm2 + 34.5 cm2="68.3" cm2
Average density placed (incision/cm2) = 36 FU/cm2
Average density in hair (Hair/cm2)=79 Hair/cm2
