Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 1353
Baldness Class: NA
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

This hair restoration patient had a large, aggressive skin cancer removed from his right temple many years ago. This was repaired at the time with a split thickness skin graft from his arm. He had been to another clinic and received a hair transplant with poor results. We performed FUT of 1,353 grafts (1-366, 2-653, 3-334; total hairs = 2,674). He is shown 8 months later. The hair is till growing in and the appearance will continue to improve for the next 6 months.

There is not only good growth of the grafts but a noticeable improvement in the texture and appearance of the underlying skin. Part of this just from the grafts, but I also believe it is from the use of ACell to coat the grafts. ACell has the ability to help prevent scarring and also improve existing scar tissue.
