Is a Full Hair Restoration Possible for a Norwood 7 Patient?
Like many people around the world, severe baldness is a very serious and depressing issue. Extreme hair loss can strike men of all ages, even as young as your twenties or early thirties. Patients with Norwood 7 level baldness, the most sever rating on the scale, often turn to many different methods to hide their problem… such as shaving your head or wearing hairpieces. Although these attempts can mask your problem, there is nothing like full hair restoration.
The primary reason full head restoration has been such a difficult procedure to pull off in the past is because of lack of available donor areas and the tools to increase them. Once a patient has exhausted all his head and nape hair, and in some cases their beard and chest hair as well, they literally do not have enough grafts to complete the restoration process. Because of advancements in body hair transplant and the innovation of tools such as the Dr.UGraft Revolution… full head restoration is now a reality.
The Dr.UGraft method and its advanced FUE technology allow for hair follicles to literally be taken from anywhere on the body. Once a patient’s typical donor areas are used up, the UGraft Rotor or Punch tool can successfully extract grafts from other body areas such as chest, legs and even pubic regions. Because of this breakthrough, the ability to extract 10,000, 20,000 or even 30,000 grafts is very possible.
The pictures shown here are from a recent case in which 12,000 grafts were used by Dr. Umar to complete a full head restoration of a Norwood 7 patient. This was accomplished over two separate procedures spanning about one year. The patient was given a new lease on life with his new full head of hair. From that point forward his life changed for the better.
