This female patient presented with traction alopecia affecting both temple point regions. When she initially arrived to visit Dr. Arocha to have her consultation she was limited to one hair style shown below.

The hair style allowed her to cover the problem areas in the temple points which are revealed when the hair is lifted. The traction alopecia was due to pulling her hair back extremely tight for long periods of time over many years but she wished to return to a pull back hair style, albeit without as much tension.

After discussions with Dr. Arocha and learning about her procedural options she opted for 2000 grafts via FUSS in one procedure. Dr. Arocha addressed both temple point regions and made some minor density improvements for the hairline as well.

The results shown below represent eight months of recovery and growth.
