You can’t tell which one is the before and which ones are the after photos?
If you investigate my blog you will learn further my experience from the beginning with Dr. Umar, but to summarize:
My first procedure was a combination of BH and scalp hair to fill in and repair my crown area which was a scarred terrain from previous surgeries and also 2 scalp reductions.
Unfortunately I experienced a prolonged bout of inflamation which resulted in a poor yield. Dr. Umar brought me back into the office and at no charge he put another 1000 or so grafts of scalp hair into the area which produced an expected result for only 1000 grafts. (See blog)
Then this past January Dr. Umar placed approximately 3000 beard hair grafts into my crown and top area, and now after 10 months, my area has improved some more. In my opinion my beard hair does not get nearly as thick as some peoples’ do. So, in the furture I will only use scalp hair because I do still have some available.
During my last trip this past January my hairline in the middle has gotten worse which Dr. Umar did not know before I arrived. So, in addition to the beard grafts he also was kind enough to give me a start on the hairline area to give it some definition but we only did about 500 or so at that time.
Obviously, I need further work on my hairline to make it better and to also make the area behind the hairline thicker.
I will also consider making the crown area thicker, but I will be using all scalp hair for furture surgeries because, as previously stated, even though the beard hair improved my situation, I think my beard hair characteristics are not as good as some peoples’.
