Surgery Date: December 2016
Post Op: July 2017
This patient is a 39-year old female who for her whole life has been bothered by very deep recessions in the frontotemporal area. Because of this, she nearly always wore her hair forward to cover the areas which was nearly devoid or had very fine, scant hair. This patient is a very active individual and desired to be able to wear her hair back without being self-conscious.
Approximately 8 months ago, 2,342 follicular unit grafts were densely packed into the left and right frontotemporal areas at our Oregon Hair Transplant Office. At this point, her hair is growing very well, and she has really noticed since month 3 that the hair started to grow. She is now noticing that her hair is filling in more each month.
The photographs on the left show her preoperative planning lines and the photographs on the right show the 8 month progress photos. The 8 month photographs were not taken in my office – thus the white background. It was very important that the follicular unit grafts are not only placed into the proper depth, but also that they are oriented correctly so they grow out following the natural hair direction, which is clearly demonstrated in the 8 month result photographs.
I am planning on seeing this patient at the 14-month postoperative mark and will repost her photographs at that time.
