Traction Alopecia Case Study – Hair Loss At Edges

This 37 year old female had been wearing tight braids and ponytails for years which resulted in broken hairs and eventually permanent hair loss at the edges of her hairline. This type of physical trauma hair loss is known as traction alopecia.  Dr. McGrath performed a FUT strip harvest and transplanted 1,685 grafts in one session.  After results are at 1 year. She is using oral minoxidil to help with hair maintenance.
