Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 6000
Baldness Class: 5
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

This patient underwent a strip surgery at another clinic, but wanted to improve upon his results. Naturally, he had a strip scar on the back of his head and he wanted to cover this. Secondly, he also wanted to cover a large strip scar on the back of his head. Like most men who are opting for corrective repair procedures, this patient had diminished supplies of head donor follicles on his head.

A third challenge inherent with this case was the patient’s bald crown. Crown hair transplants usually require a significant number of grafts for coverage.

In order to achieve the patient’s ideal outcome, 6,000 grafts were needed.
Dr. Umar was able to acquire the required donor resources mostly from the patient’s beard area. This was done using his uGraft system of tools and techniques.

With uGraft, advanced forms of Follicular Unit Extraction can be performed. General FUE punches are more suited for head hair extractions. However, when it comes to follicles from other parts of the body, they may incur damage to these tiny organs, due to their sharp growth angles. Also, since areas like the face are highly visible, the demand for pristine healing results is particularly high. Ugraft punches make it possible to perform extractions from body, or head regions without any visible traces of scarring. And this was certainly the case with this patient.

Dr. Umar was able to improve the patient’s existing hairline. The very front edge was created with nape hairs. Again, uGraft was used to harvest these unique follicles. Nape hairs also grow at sharper angles. And since many men prefer hair styles where the back is kept very short, traces of scarring would also be cause for concern. Again with the help of uGraft, donor extractions can be carried out without leaving noticeable marks or any indications that surgery was done.

With the donor supply of 6,000 grafts, Dr. Umar was able to provide adequate restoration of the crown area.

**UPDATE**

This patient initially came to our office to repair the results of a strip surgery which left him with a linear scar, continued Norwood 6 baldness and a depleted donor supply. Achieving the type of coverage he wanted required about 6000 grafts. The majority of these follicles were extracted from the beard areas. This year, the patient had his second procedure with Dr. U to further improve upon his density. 

The recent later surgery was performed using 2000 additional grafts, bringing his exact total for both sessions to 8047 grafts harvested from the following areas

Scalp (3178 grafts)
Beard (4525 grafts)
Nape (344 grafts)
