Failed Strip Surgery Hairline Transplant – Before Photos:
Prior to visiting Dr. Umar, the patient underwent strip surgery, which meant taking a strip of donor hair from the scalp and implanting that hair into different areas of the scalp. This caused a good deal of scarring.
The below image highlights his scarring.
Upon reaching Dr. Umar, this patient presented with hairline recession around the temples that was not corrected by the strip surgery he had prior, and a very visible and elongated scar from his strip surgery.
Dr. Umar determined that the patient would need 1500 grafts to reach his desired hair density and coverage. Together the patient and Dr. Umar decided on an ideal hairline and prepared for surgery.
The Solution: Follicular Unit Strip Surgery Scar Repair – Before and After Photos:
Using his patented Dr.UGraft system, Dr. Umar harvested 1500 grafts from the nape of the patient’s neck and head. Using FUE, Dr. Umar implanted hair across the width of the scar on the back of the patient’s head.
The photos below show the difference.

Seven months after his surgery, the patient returned so that Dr. Umar could check on his healing.
These images show the difference.
The patient has no clear differentiation between where the Dr.UGrafts end and where the hair sits. The donor hair has also healed well at the temples and has begun to grow in with the rest of the hair at the temples, as the below image shows.
Overall, the patient “couldn’t be happier” with the results of his surgery. Not only did Dr. Umar conceal his widening scar, he also filled the patient’s temples to create a fuller looking head of hair for the patient.
His smile says it all!
