Dr. Lindsey 2000 graft female hairline case McLean VA


Recommended Posts

This 40ish year old very athletic female came in as we were repairing another female hairline recently. Although the other lady, also posted, was a true repair, her case was quite similar to this patient’s and I felt that we could likely achieve a nice result with this limited transplant.

Shown are pictures from the day of the case and at suture removal. She’s considering moving to our area and I hope to get followup pictures throughout the year.

I can't speak for other guys but in the few females that I work with its not a big difference in density between men and women. So look at this lady's recipient area...if you can, in your mind, fold that boomerang shaped recipient zone into a tighter arc...and rotate it a little, its essentially our typical "frontal triangle case" which usually gets 1800+ grafts. Now maybe there is a little more surface area here and she and I are "gambling" a little that the hairs she still has after years of thinning are likely to stay. I haven't seen any women come in who are really bald (except from scarring alopecias). And I guess if it were truly bald we'd pack it a little tighter and need a couple of hundred more grafts but I'm always stressed she'll lose more hair and need that precious donor supply later.

 

Plus as I've posted many times...and as my main reservation in doing female cases...we'll never equal the density that you see on the women magazines at the checkout counter at the grocery. I hope we can get her 50% denser in the treated areas than we start with.

 

As long as I feel like the female patient and I can agree on that goal, I'm fairly comfortable with this plan. The real trouble is often there is too little donor hair or too much surface area to cover, and it turns out to be a fight that I have no chance at winning. Hence I work with 2 female hair patients on a busy year.

 

Good question though.
