Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 1538
Total Hairs Transplanted: 2454
Female Hair Restoration Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip).
This woman is in her early 30’s and has been experiencing hair loss for almost 10 years. She has been on spironolactone and minoxidil for 7 years but there was still some progression in her hair loss despite medical therapy.
In addition, she is a long distance runner and in my opinion she had inadequate protein intake. We advised a better diet and she began using Help Hair protein shake. Her donor density was low and we were only able to harvest 1,538 grafts (2,454 hairs), which we focused in the frontal core.
We performed PRP/ACell at the time of the FUT and at 6 months. She is shown at 12 months.
