A transgender patient had been affected by severe thinning in the frontal hairline due to pattern loss (Alopecia). She consulted with Dr. Gabel to see what could be done to stop the hair loss and improve her hairline. After examining the patient’s scalp, and donor area, Dr. Gabel recommended the Follicular Unit Transplant procedure (Strip Harvest Method) to improve overall density of her thinning hair and restore her receding hairline. The follicular unit transplantation method utilizes healthy hair follicles from the back of the hair bearing scalp and transplants them into sparce areas, blending the hair transplants seamlessly with existing hair.

About The FUT Procedure

On surgery day, Dr. Gabel drew a new hairline on her scalp as a guideline for the hair replacement surgery, which the patient was satisfied with. Once the specific recipient area was defined, hair transplant surgery commenced. During the all-day procedure, Dr. Gabel transplanted 2,213 follicular unit grafts of transplanted hair follicles into the patient’s recipient area via the strip harvest method, including her hairline and frontotemporal regions.patient 1815 er web cuhl rt

Upon completion of the hair restoration surgery, the patient closely followed Dr. Gabel’s post-operative care regimen to help ensure the best possible results for each of the hair transplants. At 6 months after the hair transplantation surgery, the patient shows excellent hair growth in the recipient area.  The donor area has healed, and the hairline and frontotemporal zones have begun to fill in. The patient is very pleased with her early results and looks forward to seeing the final results later in the year, at about 12 to 15 months. Click to see the full results.
