Severe Baldness Reversal With 12,000 Grafts by UGraft BHT: This severely bald patient chose hair restoration because he was not satisfied with commonly recommended solutions for his level of hair loss:
(1) wearing a hair piece
(2) shaving his head
Instead, he wanted full coverage by having real hair on his head. Those with extreme baldness are normally rejected as hair restoration candidates due to a shortage of donor grafts. However, with the uGraft surgical system, it is possible to compensate for this limitation through the use of body follicles.
Extracting body follicles requires a more specialized approach. The available FUE tools are not consistently sufficient for this process. Due to the particular growth characteristics of body follicles, they face the risk of damage with regular FUE punches. Specialization is also needed for the wound healing phase. Performing punch extractions on the body areas will create wounds. And there should not be cosmetically significant scars, since these would be far more visible on regions like the beard area, legs, chest, etc. All these requirements were met by the UGraft advanced FUE an BHT system in this patient and the procedure of Severe Baldness Reversal With 12,000 Grafts by UGraft BHT was a success.
UGraft tools and processes have been designed to reliably meet these challenges, making large quantity body follicle extractions extremely feasible.
