Women with androgenetic hair loss that are considering a hair transplant surgery should mentally prepare to have more than one hair transplant procedure. This does not necessarily mean that an additional surgery is performed. However, in order to get the highest possible density, more than one surgery is recommended. Ultimately, happiness is defined by each individual. If a second procedure is recommended, but the patient is happy with one surgery, awesome! Every one of my patients with androgenetic hair loss is encouraged to use HLPT. This patient had strip surgery, 2,429 grafts were transplanted in one procedure, including multiple unit grafts (MUGs), resulting in 4,904 individual hairs. Prp was processed and used as the graft media, as well as injected into the scalp. The patient photos show a significant improvement, with a noticeable increase in hair body created by the increased volume of hair visible in the hair clips. However, since she is a woman, our societal expectations suggest that she should pursue more fullness. At this time, she has declined any further surgery, but instead has chosen to enjoy her improved appearance and a higher level of self esteem. As long as she is happy, so am I. For now.
