Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This pleasant 45 year old businesswoman presented to our office with classic female pattern hair loss. Typically, these cases can be a challenge for two reasons; 1.) In FPHL the donor area commonly has the same low density as the area which is to be transplanted. For this reason, the area to be transplanted is "targeted" to where the thinning shows the most- usually along the partline. 2.)The native hair in which the transplant will occur can be quite miniaturized, therefore rendering it more susceptible to permanent "shock" loss, which can work against our overall goal of increasing local hair mass. This patient had the benefit of a very lax donor which yielded more grafts than is usually the case. As you can see, the outcome is not a dramatic one, though there is an improvement from baseline. Total FU Grafts: 2098; 414 = 1's; 1639 = 2's; 45 = 3's. Our donor strip had a native density of about 60 FU/cm2, and measured 24 cm x 1.4 cm.
