This patient had corner hair loss on one side of the hairline following a brow lift that she had done in 2003. We transplanted that weaker corner with 509 grafts in 2010. This is a unique case since we rarely just do the one corner, but the patient wanted to transplant just the left since the right corner did not show the same severe hair loss. We also treated the scar from the brow lift itself.
The corners of the female hairline often have slower growth than the middle of the hairline, so when one corner is transplanted with donor hair it will likely grow longer, thicker, and faster than the original corner hair. Why? Well, because her native hair in the hairline probably has a hair cycle measured in months rather than years. Now the hair that was transplanted at the left corner will most likely have to get cut frequently to maintain symmetry with the other side. We’re now planning another procedure to balance the sides out.
Anyway, this is a unique case and wanted to share. Click the photos below to enlarge.
