FUE Hair restoration Using 3,500 Grafts : This patient wanted his hairline, temples, front scalp and crown restored, but in a way that retained as much donor hair as possible as a hedge against potential future hair loss. His condition was labeled as Norwood 3 baldness. But based on cues from the existing hair on his head, it was quite likely that his hair loss could progress to a Norwood 5.
The patient came to Dr. Umar specifically in search of a Follicular Unit Extraction using head and nape hair, which is the perfect approach for this type of hair restoration.
With FUE, tiny micro surgical punches are used to remove tiny naturally occurring clusters of hair. These are compiled into a donor pool and inserted according to natural hair growth patterns on different regions of the head.
With the use of punches, there is no linear scar which inevitably remains after strip surgery. Therefore, patients feel much more free to wear their hair as short as they want without any fear of exposing a noticeable scar.
Furthermore, UGraft advanced Follicular Unit Extraction enables surgeons to choose different types of hair in order to create very detailed looking results. Since nape hair is thinner compared to standard head hair, it is ideal for use as grafts to restore the hairline edge so that the final outcome looks very natural.
