UGraft beard hair to head transplant repair – 8000 grafts: Patient result update

UGraft beard hair to head transplant repair – 8000 grafts : This gentlemen originally had his hair transplant surgery at our office to repair the results of a disappointing strip surgery performed at a different clinic. His original set of objectives was to camouflage the strip hair surgery scar and improve coverage in areas where hair had failed to grow from his prior operation. This included a bald crown, a sparse top and frontal scalp, the hairline and the temples. Dr. U was able to achieve the patient’s desired improvements with a 6000 donor pool. The patient has since returned for another 2000 grafts largely derived by beard hair to head transplant.

The Insertion of 8047 Body Hair Transplant Grafts

Combined the patient’s official graft total was a count of 8047 follicular units. These were derived from the following donor regions:

  1. 3178 from the scalp
  2. 4525 from the beard areas (i.e. face and neck)
  3. 344 grafts from the nape area.

After his first hair restoration which used the strip (FUT) method, the patient’s head donor supply of follicle grafts had diminished. What remained was used by Dr. U  for detail purposes. The head hair was used to help create a softer and more uniform global hair texture. However, the number of follicles available on the patient’s scalp was not enough to produce the coverage needed for the patient’s overarching goals.

Since sufficient quantities of beard hair were available, these were extracted by UGraft beard to head transplant and used to help replenish the sparse and bald areas of the patient’s head. Read more about the  UGraft technology that Dr. U invented to safely extract a wide range of different graft types from the body.

Finer nape hair was harvested for the edges of the hairline and temples. The thin quality was used to recreate true to life detail in these edges which frame the face.
