Adding Hair Density Plus Strip Surgery Scar Repair Using Ugraft – 11,000 Grafts : This patient came to Dr. U after he learned about his past successes treating dire hair repair cases. He had undergone a series of strip surgeries hoping to achieve improved coverage. But instead, these operations continued to exhaust his head donor supply, making it increasingly difficult to achieve better results. In addition to his poor coverage, he was also left with a number of strip surgery scars on the back of his head.
Without a doubt, the obvious solution to his dilemma required additional hair follicles. Although supplies on his scalp had become depleted, new hope could be garnered from the beard regions on the face and neck.
Adding Hair Density Plus Strip Surgery Scar Repair Using Ugraft – 11,000 Grafts : UGraft – An Essential Technology For Body Hair Extractions
- Non-head hair tends to emerge from the skin at very sharp angles. Typical cylindrical punches are more suited for straight and predictable growth angles that are close to ninety degrees
- Body and beard areas require superior forms of wound healing where any scarring that develops would be cosmetically insignificant and virtually unnoticeable.
UGraft was engineered with these issues in mind. Click here to learn more about how it’s features are designed for the successful removal of body hair.
UGraft offers a reliable and tangible system for removing large quantities of body hair follicles. This enables patients like the gentleman shown here to benefit from more abundant forms of coverage compared to conventional hair transplant methods which are limited to extracting follicles from the head.
Adding Hair Density Plus Strip Surgery Scar Repair Using Ugraft – 11,000 Grafts
Dr. U removed follicles from both the head and beard regions to create a copious donor pool of 11,000 grafts. Of this set, 1500 were used to camouflage the strip scar. And 9500 were inserted to restore coverage to the bald and sparse areas on the head.
In the video below, Dr. U discusses the patient’s new hairline. Due to the generous donor resources available thanks to UGraft BHT, enough grafts were available to create an aggressive hairline. This would not have been possible with scalp hair alone. It is important to note that while the extraction processes contribute towards coverage, the insertion phase matters for the final aesthetics. Each graft is inserted according to specific angles, directions and other characteristics. Furthermore, the surgeon must be able to design and implement a hairline that would help the patient look their absolute best. The final facial frame is highly contingent on appropriate temples which reflect a natural balance and continuity with the hairline.
Also with body hair extractions, wound healing and the diffuse selection of follicles are crucial for inconspicuous looking results. UGraft creates unique wound cavity shapes to minimize extraneous tissue that would lead to raised and highly visible scars. This is evident in the photos below which show excellent donor wound healing in the beard region.
Instead of harvesting specific regions of hair, Dr. U selected grafts at fairly large distances from one another. This was done to avoid creating patches and very distinct regions of missing hair on the face.
