Dr.UGraft™ FUE Corrective Hair Surgery Over Delivers for Beverly Hills Los Angeles Patient:
This patient turned to Dr. U seeking Dr.UGraft™ FUE corrective hair surgery after he had a prior transplant surgery at a different clinic. He continued to struggle with NW 6 baldness which exposed egregious linear scarring from the previous procedure. A corrective hair surgery with Dr. UGraft™ makes it possible to fix unsuccessful hair transplant results and cover a strip scar as well as areas of poor growth yield . In this post you can examine the patient’s update after his second face to head hair transplant with Dr. U
Patient Opts For Dr.UGraft™ Surgery to Fix Unsuccessful Hair Transplant – Before Photos:
The earlier procedures at other clinics depleted the patient’s resulted in the depletion of donor a lack of head hair. In addition, his transplanted donor grafts from the scalp area did not survive, leaving him with continued signs of hair loss that made it harder to complete the restoration. Before his Dr.UGraft™ corrective hair surgery, the patient’s hairline and crown still showed signs of balding.
After his previous strip surgery, his temple hair growth was not angled correctly. The patient was also concerned with the lack of donor hair he had left. The photo below shows how the crown and temple points did not connect appropriately to the hairline.
Besides leaving a depleted donor area, the past strip surgery resulted in poor growth and a strong strip scar. Even after having grown his hair to fairly long lengths, the patient was still not able to cover up this scar.
Unlike the Dr.UGraft™ FUE corrective hair surgery, invasive procedures such as strip surgery can cause more harm than good, especially when the growth results are poor and the linear scar is extremely noticeable.

The total breakdown of grafts after the second Dr.UGraft corrective hair transplant:
- 4525 beard grafts.
- 3178 scalp grafts
- 344 nape grafts.
Corrective Hair Surgery to Reconstruct Hairline and Temples and Cover Strip Scar-Before and After Results Photos:
Before the Dr.UGraft FUE corrective hair surgery this patient was distressed about his NW6 baldness and thinning hairline. Dr. U was able to create a seamless transition from the hairline to the back of the head using donor nape hair.
The use of nape follicles provided soft donor hair that blended in with the head hair. His temple to hairline transition now reflects accurate hair growth directions. Overall the results are exceedingly natural looking in appearance. And even though the beard area had thousands of grafts harvested, it healed with excellent cosmetic results with no visible signs of scarring.
The Dr.UGraft FUE corrective hair surgery was also performed to create a fitting and age appropriate hairline to both frame and flatter the patient’s features, helping him look his personal best.
The patient was very happy with his end results and said that if he had a choice he would do it all over again. In his opinion, the outcome turned out better than what he had expected.

Dr.UGraft™ FUE Corrective Hair Surgery FAQ:
Do I need a laser treatment after a hair transplant correction using Dr.UGraft™ with beard hair?
Healing will vary with each individual patient, however the beard hair donor area usually recovers on its own.
The use of lasers for skin healing is not necessary with Dr.UGraft surgeries. This donor hair extraction technology creates smaller wound cavities with an inverted point the bottom to minimize excess tissue, leaving the skin to heal without noticeable signs of redness or raised bumps.
How soon after my bad hair transplant can I qualify for a Dr.UGraft™ corrective hair surgery?
A bad hair transplant may be due to poor growth, poorly done insertions or visible scarring. If lack of growth is apparent after the full 18 months, you may consider the option of a repair surgery. The other factors don’t necessarily require a set time frame. In any case, qualifying for a Dr.UGraft procedure will depend on having the right quantities of head and/or body hair, among other factors, not on timeframes.
