Scalp Reduction and Crown Deformity Repair: Before Photos
Before seeing Dr. Umar, this patient opted for several hair transplants and a scalp reduction at a different clinic. These other outdated hair surgical methods also did little to address the lack of coverage on the patient’s crown. Worse, the patient had scarring and an unbalanced hairline.
The images below show his hairline before surgery.
In addition, this patient ended up with round “Black and Decker” punch scars on the back of his scalp. This always required the patient to wear a hairstyle of a certain length to conceal the scars.

Scalp Reduction and Progressive Hair Loss Repair – Frequently Asked Questions:
Exactly how does scalp reduction work, as opposed to the Dr.UGraft?
Scalp reduction involves the removal of skin from the head to reduce baldness. After the skin is excised, a surgeon then closes the wound, pulling the surrounding scalp together. In theory, scalp reduction reduces the appearance of baldness by adjusting the skin with remaining hair to cover the entire head. Scalp reduction has a long history of scarring as well as unnatural-looking results. Because of its invasive nature, scalp reduction surgeries also require hospitalization.
By contrast, the minimally-invasive Dr.UGraft surgery is performed in Dr. Umar’s Los Angeles office, and requires only local anesthesia. A patient can go home afterword without any worry of complications.
What guide does Dr. Umar use to balance out or restore a patient’s hairline?
Dr. Umar uses an approach known as the “rule of thirds” to best treat his patients. In short, he divides the head up into sections, which allows him to create a symmetrical design for the new hairline. The nature of the Dr.UGraft allows Dr. Umar to place transplanted hair with great precision, thus creating a totally natural looking hairline.
