This is a 35 year old patient who presented with a history of a prior hairline restoration that failed to achieve his density objectives. He was also dissatisfied with his donor scar. He first underwent a scar revision in the donor area and returned 3 months later for his hairline restoration. A total of 1800 grafts using an FUE harvest was performed to enhance his hairline density and to augment his temporal hairline. Presented here are one year postop pictures along with short-term postoperative photos of the donor and recipient sites.

Nice subtle refining of the entire hairline zone there Dr K. :cool:

Very nice result! Natural and dense, just nice.

Could you share some insight why FUE was chosen? If you already have a scar, I would have gone FUT again.

 

Was he stripped out or was the scar too low and he didn't want a second scar? Why was the prior FUT result poor?

Gasthoerer, the patient thought his original scar was detectable at a shorter hair length and did not want to risk any widening with another strip harvest. The revision narrowed it sufficiently so that he could wear relatively shorter hair. You can see that the scar is fairly well camouflaged even with only one week of growth following the donor shave that was used for the FUE harvest. He was dissatisfied with the density that was achieved with his first session as he was hoping to have a more solid hairline that would support a hair style that was combed up or back.

 

Thanks for all comments.
