RECOMMENDED TREATMENT

This 50 year old lady has always suffered from a high and spacious forehead and wanted to find a solution to correct this situation.

This kind of scenario almost always presents excellent indications for performing a hair transplant. Glabrous areas generally do not represent a very large area. In addition, the donor area is in most cases excellent : this allows to collect a good amount of grafts through the FUT technique (preferable for women) and therefore to obtain a very high density in the frontal area.

In December 2018, we performed an FUT surgery. Based on a preliminary estimate, we expected to obtain about 2500-3000 grafts from the strip; in the end, we extracted and implanted 2695 FUT grafts. The evolution of the patient was very positive and, 14 months after surgery, the situation was already visibly improved. Even the linear scar resulting from the FUT was barely distinguishable.

However, the patient wanted to refine the result obtained even more. Therefore, in February 2020, we performed a second FUT surgery with the goal this time of harvesting approximately 800-1000 grafts. The final count was 873 FUT grafts, which were grafted where necessary to increase density. In total, the patient received 3568 FUT grafts in two sessions.

Six months after the second surgery, she came to the clinic for a postoperative checkup and was thrilled with the result. In fact, the situation already showed a remarkable improvement and a very dense and natural result. We will not hesitate to update this post with new photographic material as soon as we have the opportunity to meet her again.
