Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 4016
Total Hairs Transplanted: 7980
Baldness Class: 4
Surgical Procedure: 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.
