Dr Timothy Carman 2055 FU Grafts One Year result.

Recommended Posts

This gentleman is a 54 YO male with MPHL affecting his frontal hairline, frontal forelock, midscalp and crown area. His donor area presented a challenge as his donor reserves are less than most men due to a tight scalp and low density of FU's. Average density in most men's donor is about 85-90 FU/cm2. This patient has a density of about 65-70.cm2. It is especially important in cases where donor numbers are low to not "dilute" the effect of the grafting by trying to spread the available supply over too large an area. This is a challenge when that recipient area is large. This case shows the critical need for healthy transplanted hair growth in creating a natural result, despite low donor yield. Note the typical donor scar which again, is a non-issue when keeping hair a cm or longer in the donor.
