This patient pursued our clinic in hopes of increasing density in the frontal scalp and reinforcing the top by Follicular Isolation technique. Similar to FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction), FIT allows Dr. Patrick Mwamba to harvest hair in the donor area without use of a scalpel. FIT involves no need for stitches, sutures, or linear scarring. The patient has slightly wavy, salt-n-pepper hair of a medium caliber with about average donor density. The patient's hair characteristics are ideal and offer excellent coverage value. Coverage value is beneficial for patients who have an advanced degree of hair loss. Dr. Patrick Mwamba successfully treated the patient by transplanting 3500 FIT grafts in one session over multiple days.
