Frequently Asked Questions – Norwood 3 Crown Hair Loss.
Is a body hair transplant surgery the best procedure to choose for crown hair loss?
Every patient’s hair loss situation varies in severity and donor graft availability. The first priority would be to consider the use of head hair. Body hair should be utilized when the scalp cannot supply enough grafts to fill in the crown. Body hair transplant surgery is an effective procedure that implements other donor areas besides the head. If you are looking for optimal results, the Dr UGraft advanced FUE crown hair transplant procedure offers a safe, easy solution for crown hair restoration.
Can I restore and refine my hairline in my first surgery and treat my crown hair loss later? Or do they have to be done all at once?
These restorative procedures can be done at separate times in order to fit your budget and focus on the most important problem first. Dr. U is experienced in completing hair transplants in stages according to the patient’s needs.
Are bad hair transplant repairs common?
Poorly conducted hair transplants are more common than most people think. Your results will depend on the experience of your doctor, the quality of the donor grafts and the type of procedure/tools implemented. Not every hair transplant surgeon possesses the right skills or expertise to produce desirable results. Badly performed surgeries deplete the donor area and transplant grafts.
