PATIENT # 106

Hair Transplant Sessions: 1

Grafts Implanted: 2153

Female Hair Restoration 
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip).

This African American female in her late 50’s had long standing traction alopecia and androgenetic alopecia. She had been stable for many years and was wearing a wig. We did 2,153 grafts (1-631, 2-1309, 3-193; 3828 hairs) primarily to the hairline and some scattered in the mid-scalp.

Given the large area covered, only light density was achieved. The patient uses camouflaging fibers on the top of her scalp, behind the hairline, to add visual density. This combination allowed her to get out of the wig and to wear the short hair style she desired.
