epair Case

38-year-old patient

Transplant performed with long hair

Result at 7 months

Patient history:

At the age of 26 years Strip transplantation (in another foreign facility) for thickening the first line with about 900 UF

Complications: Low, straight, asymmetrical and with Plugs (very large and fake follicular units with doll effect) in the front line and over the years progression of baldness with retraction of the gulfs.

Surgical proposal of Dr. Insalaco

– Removal of plugs from the first line

– The intervention at least 3 months later, with reconstruction of the first line, gulfs and frontal area

Patient request:

The patient, for work and public presentation reasons, asks to perform first the thickening of the thinned areas and then, after the results obtained, to remove the Plugs from the first line.

Technical comments:

Donor area with thick and long strip scar, therefore limited number of UF to be removed

Dr. explains to the patient that the fake effect of the first line can be reduced with the new transplant but not completely removed until the plugs are surgically removed from the first line.

The transplant was performed with long hair…

The used punch of Cole Instruments 95 mm, 2.8 mm pick-up depth (CIT technique)

Follicular Units tot= 2500

Result shown at 7 months

At 12 months the pz will perform a second operation of surgical removal of the Plugs and thickening of the I Line
