This 37-year-old female patient came to visit me to discuss about a possible solution for her hairline and temples thinning, caused by Androgenic Alopecia. She had suffered from that condition since the age of 27. She had tried to use Minoxidil in order to improve the situation, but unfortunately the medication caused side effects (hair growing on undesired areas).
During the consultation, we therefore agreed upon performing a FUT procedure complemented by a small FUE in order to cherry-pick approximately one hundred softer hairs from the nape area with the aim of restoring the very first hairline and temples. Eventually, the patient received a total of 2136 grafts.
The post-operative pictures were sent in by the patient. One year after the surgery, she is very satisfied with her new look : the situation has actually remarkably improved, the yield seems excellent and the results are very natural.
