Question: I have always had a nervous habit of twisting my hair. Over the years I have managed to pull out quite a bit of hair around my sideburn area. I have long hair and have always had to style it to cover that area. I am interested in a hair transplant. I think that the area of one side is about two square inches so total four square inches. I like the FUE procedure because of no scar. About how many grafts would be needed to fill in this sideburn area?
Answer: It sounds like you have a compulsive habit called trichotillomania which should not be treated surgically without support of a psychologist.
