Frequently Asked Questions – Dr.UGraft™ FUE Repair
Can a patient request their results resemble a celebrities’ hair or look?
Yes, celebrity hair transplant requests are very common. Typically when a new patient is being consulted for cosmetic surgery, they have their ideal look in mind. Often times this look resembles a celebrity that they wish to emulate. While Dr. Umar cannot guarantee that you look like this particular celebrity, he does use their look as inspiration during the hair transplant or restoration procedure.
For instance, the patient feature, in this case, expressed the desire to have a ‘Bono haircut’, like the famous musician. The patient was very satisfied with the final results and his hairline and style closely resembled the aforementioned celebrity.
Can a bad hair transplant be reversed?
In most cases, a hair transplant reversal is possible. If the patient has a visibly “pluggy” outcome, small follicular units can be used to camouflage the larger, older grafts. If the patient desires, large grafts from a previous transplant can also be removed. However, using the Dr.UGraft technique, it is possible to repair a hair transplant and restore hair, even if the head donor source is depleted. Additionally, severe scarring on the back and sides of the head were repaired by Dr. Umar’s Dr.UGraft methods
How does Dr. Umar restore hair and repair hair transplant scars?
Dr. Umar uses his signature Dr.UGraft technique to perform an FUE procedure using either head donor hair, body donor hair, or both. He then grafts the follicular units directly into the strip scar, effectively hiding it.
Apart from doing a Dr.UGraft™ hair transplant on scar, what other alternatives exist for scalp scar repair?
In some cases, scalp micropigmentation (SMP) can be used to camouflage scarring from a bad hair surgery outcome. This is an option for patients with dark hair who like to wear their hair short. However, SMP will do little to hide a scar on a patient with light hair or who like to wear their hair long.
Can hair be implanted into scar tissue?
Yes, FUE grafts can be implanted directly implanted into scar tissue. Depending on the amount of scar tissue, your surgeon might remove part of the scar before implanting hair into the area. Your surgeon might also implant hair into the area surrounding the scar to further camouflage the area.
