PATIENT # 119

Hair Transplant Sessions: 1

Grafts Implanted: 2217

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

This lady is in her early 70’s but looks much younger, except for the frontal hair loss. We performed FUT of 2217 grafts ((1-843, 2-1077, 3-278, 4-19; 3,907 hairs).

Her donor area was typical for many of the females I see, which is much lower density and far fewer hairs/graft compared to the men I see. It is necessary to pack the hair in at a good density. In addition, we usually combine the single hair grafts to increase the number of 2 and 3 hair grafts.

This looks better than placing them singly and means fewer incisions in the scalp. She is shown one year after the procedure.
