FUT hair transplant 1800 Grafts
It was an interesting case with frontal hairline recession. There was a Grade 3 boldness along with significant thinning of the frontal forelock. In this case there was recession of the hairline from the central area as well.
There was a possibility of FUT as well as FUE surgery, so the patient was explained about the pros and cons of both the surgeries. Final decision was taken by the patient considering the current situation, future hair loss, family history of baldness and response to previous medical treatments. It is so important to have all these options in mind before taking the final decision. In this case patient decided to go for FUT surgery to make use of the permanent donor zone and to reserve some donor for future use.
Many a times patients are scared of one or the other methods which is wrong and perhaps forces them to choose the wrong method. According to us both the methods are good and have their advantages and disadvantages. The surgery was done without shaving off the head to minimise the social downtime. So many patients find it very convenient to undergo such kind of procedures and still continuing their daily routine activities.
We did 1800 grafts by doing FUT surgery giving him the most sophisticated hairline “Satya’s Mimic Nature Hairline”. This hairline looks absolutely natural and is totally undetectable. Years of hard work, honesty, passion, skills and creativity are put together to execute this work.
The grafts for placed in the existing hair very precisely taking care that no area is left untouched. 1800 grafts were done in order to take care of future thinning. You can see the exact graft placement, in 15 days postop pictures. In five months postop pictures you can see initial growth which is looking absolutely natural and totally undetectable. In 9 to 10 months time almost all the hair growth has come and it looks absolutely stunning. This is one of the most natural and beautiful hair transplant result one can ever have.
The scar at the back of head is almost undetectable because of Trichophytic closure. A lot of people are scared of FUT surgery because of the scar. As you can see in the video it is barely visible. There is no tightness of the scalp or limitation in the movements because of the strip removal.
This case is one of the unique cases where you can see the follow-up of more than seven years. You can see there is slight thinning of the transplanted hair, but th existing hair have thinned out to some extent.
The patient was not put on finasteride & the results are still good & holding up pretty well, though we can see some thinning in the transplanted area & the area behind transplant. Finasteride may or may not keep working for 7 years as there are tolerance issues with finasteride & we have option of introducing finasteride even now, which can help in further sustenance of the results. This would not have been possible to get such prolonged results, had we given finasteride earlier in the beginning itself.
We are so used to see the results which are finasteride boosted. In such cases you will also consistently find a very high number of grafts being promised and results camouflaged with the help of finasteride. So that speaks volumes for the results.
