Female hair restoration- 1698 FUE grafts

Procedure detail

This is a pleasant 32 year old lady who underwent an FUE procedure in June 2019. Her main complaint was a prominent forehead and obvious "male pattern" Fronto -temporal recessions. Her donor quality was assessed and was excellent. She was offered both FUT or FUE but elected to go with the latter as she wanted a faster recovery time and no obvious scarring. We decided not to lower the hairline significantly as the main aim was to get some good density in the recessions and allow her to pull her hair back. This will also give a lower forehead appearance. The patient and myself are delighted with her progress. I certainly believe female hairline work to be a rather challenging field within hair restoration surgery which I really enjoy performing and seeing good transformation in.
