This patient from Hollywood, Los Angeles had reached the Norwood 3 level baldness stage. At this point, his hairline had receded considerably. And furthermore, the hair on the top of his head was thinning. The patient was unhappy with how this affected his appearance and wanted to regain his youthful head of hair.  He discovered, the work of Dr. Umar and decided to choose him to perform a Dr.UGraft FUE hairline reconstruction and crown restoration with 3500 grafts.

Reverse Hair Thinning with Dr.UGraft FUE – Procedure Photos

Dr. Umar performed an Dr.UGraft FUE hairline transplant with 3500 grafts on the patient’s head and nape area. He developed his own highly specialized FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) technology, called the Dr.UPunch i  ™ to extract hair follicle grafts. The outstanding hairline results that Dr. Umar is known for can largely be attributed to the features of the Dr.UPunch i  ™ device.  For this patient’s case, it was necessary to achieve the following:

  1. Ability to safely harvest nape hair
  2. Ability to remove healthy, robust head hair grafts

Whereas conventional FUE extraction devices are designed to follow a straight trajectory into the skin, the  Dr.UPunch i  ™ is designed to navigate straight or angled hair, like nape hair. Furthermore, Dr. Umar engineered the Dr.UPunch i  ™ to prevent the most common factors that lead to damaged grafts. In doing so, follicles implanted in the recipient area remain in their healthiest state to thrive and produce the reliable, long-term growth that patients can count on after their procedure.

The grafts for this patient grew to full fruition by the 19th month. Dr. Umar used thin nape hair to create a soft edge in the very front and gradually combined the use of head hair to reproduce a natural and seamless progression to the rest of the head.

Grafts from the scalp were used to fill in the thinning regions on top of the head. For this patient’s Dr.UGraft™ FUE hairline transplant with 3500 grafts, Dr. Umar was able to recreate the natural hair growth patterns on the patient’s head through carefully crafted insertions. And he designed the hairline and temples to not only restore the youthful appearance of this patient from Hollywood but also to compliment his overall set of facial features, helping him to look his absolute best.

Frequently Asked Questions – Dr.UGraft FUE Hairline Reconstruction

If I want to reverse hair thinning with Dr.UGraft FUE surgery, when can I start to see my new results?

According to Dr. Umar, the signs of new growth start to become apparent around 3-4 month following a hair transplant surgery. However exact timeframes can vary from patient to patient. Typically, full results are seen around 12-18 months after surgery, like this patient who underwent a Dr.UGraft™ FUE hairline transplant with 3500 grafts.  

Can the same type of Dr.UGraft FUE results for crown baldness and hairline thinning shown on this patient be achieved using strip surgery?

With strip surgery, surgeons can only harvest hair from the lower part of the scalp on the back of the head. This is where hair tends to grow the thickest. Due to the use of a scalpel, nape hair would not be an option. Therefore, only thick hairs could be used for the hairline. And using the strip surgery method, doctors would not be able to recreate the gradual progression from softer to thicker hair. The end results would not be as natural-looking in appearance, compared to using fine hairs in the very front and creating a subtle progression to thicker hairs,  a key quality found in natural hairlines.

Is there any type of non-surgical solution that is available as an alternative to a Dr.UGraft FUE hairline reconstruction?

In the very beginning stages of hairline recession, individuals can often hide signs of hair loss with hair styling tricks. But as more hair is lost, this becomes more difficult. Drugs like Rogaine and Propecia can help slow down the rate of hair shedding. Their recommended use is for the crown, the area examined through clinical studies. However, the hair follicles are the same in both the crown and hairline. The use of drugs to restore hair growth in the hairline is not guaranteed.
