This 50-year-old lady since always suffered from a big forehead and wanted to find a solution to correct her situation.

This kind of scenario presents quite always good indications to undergo a hair transplant procedure. The balding areas usually do not represent a very big surface. Moreover, the donor area is most of the times excellent, which enables to get a good quantity of hair through FUT technique (preferred for women) and thus to reach a very high density on the forehead zone.

In December 2018 we proceeded with an FUT procedure. Following a preliminary estimation, we were aiming to harvest 2500-3000 grafts; in the end, we extracted and implanted 2695 FUT grafts. The evolution has been very positive and, 14 months after the procedure, the situation had already remarkably improved. The linear FUT scar was barely detectable as well.

The patient wished nonetheless to further improve and perfect her results. Thus, in February 2020, we performed a second FUT procedure consisting this time of approximately 800-1000 grafts. The final grafts count states 873 FUT grafts, which were implanted to increase the hair density where needed - for an overall total of 3568 FUT grafts.

Six months after the second procedure, the lady came to my office for a check-up consultation and was ecstatic about the results achieved. Actually, her situation already showed a huge improvement, very dense and natural results. We won't hesitate to update this thread with further photographic material as soon as we will have the chance to meet her again.
