Hair Transplant Surgeon: Paul V. Shapiro, M.D.

Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 2721
Female Hair Restoration
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)


This female patient had the typical high hairline, and male pattern recession seen after menopause. These results are 11 months out. Most female patients take at least 18 months to see the final results of their hair transplant so I expect to see even more thickening over the next 6 months.

The graft count was as follows:

1 hair FU 813 Hairs 813
2 hair FU 1485 Hairs 2970
3 hair FU 404 Hairs 1212
4 hair FU 19 Hairs 19

Total  FU 2721 Total Hairs 5071
