Does PRP Help Transplanted Grafts Stay in Place?


Recommended Posts

Here's a rather interesting finding over the past year in our office that I thought I would share with the community. Although it's purely anecdotal at this stage, I have observed that when incubated in platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and ACell during their out-of-body time, transplanted hair follicles appear less likely to shed early in the postoperative process.

 

For illustration, here is an FUE patient of mine who, in one day, had 2060 FU transplanted throughout his frontal half. He returned over a month later (a period before which micro graft shaft shedding had occurred in years past) and very few (if any) of the transplanted hair shafts had fallen out. This provided an early framing of this patient's face as the transplanted hair length closely matched that of his surrounding pre-existing hairs.

 

An observation that our office will certainly explore in more detail...

Very interesting! Hopefully you will see more cases like this and update the thread with additional examples. Thank you for sharing.
