Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)
While not every patient is a candidate for this
approach, this 46-year-old patient received a smaller, focused session to
reinforce his temporal recessions. Using only 1365 grafts to add density
specifically to these areas (and partially into surrounding areas of future
loss), this patient, and others like him, may save not only donor hair for the
future but also the financial cost of a larger session.
should be met to make this focused approach a viable option: adequate donor
density, ample density in the areas not being treated, and a prognosis of only
moderate MPB (that can be effectively treated in the future, based on donor
availability). This focused approach, in which the area of greatest cosmetic
importance is addressed, is much more commonly used in female patients (with
FPHL) who may not have subsequent thinning to the same degree as some young men.
