The Solution – The Less is More Approach Using Dr.UGraft – Before and After Photos:
Dr. Umar used only around 3000 Dr.UGrafts from the nape and head to create symmetry along the patient’s head and hairline. By using grafts from other areas of the head, Dr. Umar aimed to even out the patient’s hair along the scalp. He also wanted to create a smooth hairline with a combination of hair types from the donor areas. Dr. Umar decided that nape hair would best restore the temples.
Dr. Umar concealed patches of hair loss with grafts taken from richer areas of the head. He also improved the patient’s natural whirl to simulate a natural head of hair.
