Hair transplantation is a procedure which people think that only males get done. A lot of females and transgender patients also opt for hair transplantation procedure. We know hair transplantation is an art, more so in patients like this. She had a receding hairline like males and wanted to make it feminine.
In this case, the patient had a good donor area and both the options FUT as well as FUE were possible. Patient did not want to shave off her head even then FUE was possible in this case. Both options were given to the patient telling the pros and cons of the procedures.
To know more about differences between FUT and FUE you can contact us or mail to us. We have made a lot of Educational videos on this topic, which are there on our YouTube channel and other social media platforms.
We did 2000 FUT grafts for her. She had been told to undergo 3000-4000 grafts by many clinics, that too by FUE alone. We hope you understand the fact that FUE gives us the option to cherry pick multi-hair grafts which means more number of hair per graft. FUT doesn’t give us this option.
So 2000 FUE grafts can even have close to 5000+ hair, while the same number of 2000 FUT grafts might give a patient just 3000 hair. That means the result of FUT & FUE should not be compared in terms of the number of grafts. And this also means the patient who has undergone FUT has more multi-hair grafts left in his or her donor bank for future use.
In 15 days post-op pictures, you can see the graft placement. Creating a hair line in a female patient is even more difficult as compared to males. Most of the surgeons are more comfortable while designing a hairline for males but we love to do it for females also. Satya’s mimic nature hairline has become a landmark as far as the aesthetic part of hairline designing is concerned.
You can see the result looks amazing, absolutely natural and nobody can tell that this is a transplant.
Hairline creation in itself is an art, more so in female patients. A lot of doctors don’t have that skill & enough experience to take care of the aesthetics of a feminine hairline. Here comes the role of art & imagination. That is why, choosing a skilful, creative & artistic hair transplant surgeon is so important.
The patient was a transgender patient already on hormonal therapy for the same, which included finasteride 5 mg per day, which was continued even after transplant.
