Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)
This patient, who has very fine hair, started on
finasteride and minoxidil. We performed FUT: 4,016 grafts (1-1027, 2-2082,
3-839, 4-68; total hairs = 7,980). The results, shown 18 months later, represent
both the grafting and medical treatment. We coated the grafts with ACell and
this creates a subtle benefit by inhibiting microscarring around the grafts and
promoting the formation of healthy capillaries. One effect of this is better
preservation of miniaturizing hairs around the graft. The close up photo shows
the strong healthy grafts mixed in with thinning hair around it. Without ACell,
the microscarring can lead to knockout of these fine hairs. Keeping them around
creates an 'underbrush' that contributes to the final result.
