The patient shown in this photo had undergone strip surgeries at another clinic years prior to seeing Dr. Umar in Los Angeles. The outcomes of the strip surgeries created problems for the patient with the most severe ridging, a hairline packed densely with large plugs, and strip scars. The patient hid his disfiguring hairline by shaving the plugs and combing the hair of the frontal scalp forward. He was left with his original hair loss problem unsolved and ended up with the state of his baldness even worse than before he had his strip surgery transplant. Fortunately, he found Dr. Umar through the good reviews and words of other patients, and even more so, realized that Dr. Umar was an expert in the innovative method of Body Hair Transplantation (BHT). Therefore, the patient was now presented with the possibility of repairing his poor strip surgery hair transplant, since with BHT, body hair can now be utilized as a substitute for traditional donor hair that came from the back of the head. This allows patients who had head donor hair supply devastated and reduced by the scalpel of the strip surgery to have another means of obtaining donor hair to be used for hair transplantation.http://www.dermhairclinic.com
For this patient, Dr. Umar performed a series of plug extractions to remove the plugging, reduce the ridging and make room for the placement of new natural follicular units in the hairline. Subsequently, the hairline was recreated using head and nape hair. The strip scar was camouflaged with the patient’s beard hair.
It is important to take extreme caution and extensive research before deciding upon which hair restoration surgeon to trust to perform your hair transplant. This is an especially major precaution because it is better to be bald than to end up with an odd look due to having a less qualified and experienced hair surgeon perform the transplant. Hair transplants cannot be reversed after it is completed. For instance, for this patient, even if the entire plugs were successfully removed, the area would still reveal the ridging and irregularity of the scarred pitted surface, which cannot be reversed. Fortunately, with Dr. Umar’s expertise and perfected method of repairing even the worst hair transplants, the patient achieved results that he is extremely happy with, and he no longer has to clip his plugs or resort to creative combing or hide under hats.
