Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This 33-year-old gentleman had a transplant a few years ago at another clinic to increase the density of his frontal hairline. After the procedure, he felt that the hairline was not straight with the left side higher then the right side.


After a thorough consultation, both the patient and I designed his desired hairline that he felt was straight and would balance the left and right sides appropriately. He desired more hair on the left side, but also wanted to augment the entire frontal hairline. We transplanted 1238 grafts into the first couple centimeters with a greater emphasis on the left side to correct the imbalance.

The photographs presented are 18 months after the procedure at the Gabel Center. We do not have his original preoperative photographs (prior to his first hair transplant) to show. The photographs here depict his preoperative state with us, photographs depicting the proposed lines, immediate postoperative photographs, and the 18-month results.
