Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 3148
Female Hair Restoration
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This patient has grade II Female Pattern Hair loss. She was started on 5% Minoxidil and underwent 3,148 FUT to the front/central scalp, using small needle slits to avoid damaging existing hair (the recipient area was not shaved). The grafts were treated with ACell MatriStem as well. The results are shown at 10 months. To what extent Minoxidil or ACell contributed to the result is difficult to say.
