Female Hair Restoration
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This 66 year old female hair restoration patient came to us for revision of her facial hair line, which, as a result of multiple facelift procedures, had been moved posteriorly and superiorly, relative to it's naturally occurring presurgery position. Specifically, then, she had alopecia and scarring from those procedures which had resulted in:

1) Receded frontal and bitemporal hairline;
2) Elevation and recession of temporal points bilaterally;
3) Recession of bilateral sideburn areas.
4) Scarring/thinning in areas posterior to sideburn areas.

As this was not a case of FPHL, she had an excellent donor supply. From a donor ellipse measuring 29 x 1.4 cm2 we utilized all FU grafts in the following distribution: 3458 Total; 1's = 1129; 2's=2166; 3's=163. There was acceptable closure tension using the tricophytic technique.
