Dear readers,

Patient is an Australia based person of Indian origin.

This patient was suffering from traction alopecia and went for 3150 FUSE grafts (2254 scalp grafts + 896 beard grafts).

Video available at http://vimeo.com/3351175 7 months after his transplant, the patient is happy with the results.

Looking very good at the 7 month mark.

Is traction alopecia very common in Indian guys,is it caused by the headwear they use and if so are they advised not to wear it anymore after their HT.

Thanks bm.

A lovely result...

I must admit that mention / use of beard hair seems very uncommon... yet the results speak for themselves... excellent..

Why is beard hair not used more for HT's. I would have thought it would have been a great help to people with very low donor supplies... for example in a case where someone has had poor quality results from a previous HT... I would have thought that beard hair at the very least could help with covering up bad donor scars ?

Another question I would like to ask... does beard hair take the same amount of time to start as the usual transplanted hair... also I guess it grows quicker and therefore trips to to the hair dressers are more frequent ?
