We are presenting a 40 year old woman who came to us with significant scarring due to complications from a facial cosmetic procedure.
We waited 6 months after her initial visit, in order to give enough time to the hair that might have fallen out due to Telogen Effluvioum, to grow back.
Then, we planned for a test hair transplant in order to determine whether the hair would grow back into the scarred area. We designed a few boxes and transplanted 100 grafts into each box. We transplanted only 786 grafts at this stage. Six months after the test hair transplant, we observed close to complete hair growth.
After the successful test transplant, we proceeded with another hair transplant which would cover the entire front and corners using 2,716 grafts. We restored the transplanted area with less than maximum possible density due to the fact that most of the areas were scarred. The observed growth from this stage was almost complete so we proceeded with the last procedure to fine tune and add more density to previously transplanted area.
The last procedure was performed using 1,231 grafts in order to increase the density of the previously transplanted areas of scalp. The growth was complete at 18 months, allowing the patient to style her hair the way she wanted and enjoy her hair once more.
