This 34 year old patient presented with a history of three prior hair restoration procedures that were performed by three different surgeons.  He was unhappy with the lack of density and patchy appearance in the prior transplant zones.  The patient also expressed concern about the visibility of his strip harvest scar.  His examination revealed very low frontal and midscalp density which was of concern in light of him having undergone three prior procedures.

Restoration of the density deficient frontal and midscalp regions, as well as the donor strip scar, was performed using a total of 1940 grafts that were obtained using an FUE harvest.  The scar was treated with 300 grafts and the frontal/midscalp regions were managed with 1640 grafts.  Presented here are preop and postop pics which demonstrate the final frontal/midscalp density and donor scar camouflage that was accomplished.

WOW. that is actually quite impressive.  It's actually growing in the right direction and angle for AA. I had no idea he could do AA FUE.  Well, may have to schedule a consultation but heard he is quite expensive, anyone know the rates these days??

impeccable.

Out of curiosity is 300 grafts a normal amount to tend to a donor strip scar?

My experience shows 300 grafts to be an average amount needed for average strip scars in need of camouflage.  There are definitely cases needing fewer and some needing more, but this is a good estimate for most.  It is interesting and encouraging that most patients burdened with visible scars can eventually opt for fairly short hair styles if enough grafts are used.  I find two staged sessions are needed for most larger scars when one wants to go with the shorter hair styles.

Thanks so much for the detailed response!

It's truly impressive how much coverage you attained on the frontal/midscalp regions with just 1640 grafts, let alone the seeming invisibility of the FUT scar post op. Thanks for sharing this.

There is no single best source for all patients.  Hair color and texture matches are important, and it is not uncommon for these characteristics to vary between the donor and recipient sites.  Beard hair is a good option when the scalp shows signs of donor depletion and the physical characteristics of the two zones are relatively favorable.  Hair for hair, beard is a good camouflage agent because of its high caliber.  Each patient needs to be evaluated on an individual basis to determine what is best for him or her.

If this wasn't posted by Dr. K I wouldn't have believed this result. Absolutely phenomenal.
