Botched and Donor Depleted Severely Bald Patient Repaired: For centuries, men and women have struggled with hair loss. Fortunately, Dr. Sanusi Umar has pioneered and advanced FUE hair transplants allowing for significant restoration of severe hair loss. Using his patented Dr.UGraft system, he treated a patient who had long struggled with severe baldness (Norwood Level 6) and strip scars from previous surgeries. This patient had also depleted his head donor area from previous failed hair procedures.
Before photos of Strip Surgery Hair Transplant Repair:
In addition to his natural hair loss, the patient also had unsatisfactory results from previous, failed surgeries performed elsewhere. The prior treatment attempts had depleted this patient’s hair and caused visible damage to his scalp. Until He found Dr Umar, he was convinced there is no hope for him outside of using fake wigs or living with a botched look.
These photos show the patient’s scalp prior to repair with the Dr.UGraft:
In addition to natural hair loss, the patient’s thinning hair texture and lack of coverage really limited his grooming options. Needless to say, he felt very insecure with the state of his hair.
The Solution: Strip Surgery Hair Transplant Repair with Dr. Umar – Before & After Photos
In order to achieve optimal results and fix previously caused damage, Dr. Umar decided to perform a strip surgery hair transplant repair using 8000 grafts. This procedure allowed for harvesting hair grafts from various body areas of the patient.
Dr. Umar conferred with and agreed with the patient on a treatment plan. They decided on 8000 grafts taken from the head, beard, and chest:
- 1800 head hair.
- 4500 beard hair.
- 700 chest hair.
The photo below shows the transformation. In this case, Dr. Umar also restored the patient’s hairline and temples in order to complete a natural “fuller head” of hair look. The after images show how that the transplanted grafts have settled in naturally; covering up the spots of the scalp that previously showed severe signs of balding.
Optimal Results From Strip Surgery Hair Transplant Repair: Patient Result Photos
