Hairloss level: NW 2 with V shaped hairline. Patient did not like the “dracular” look Surgery: I used 600 follicles derived from the nape area to create a soft natural looking hairline. Nape hair follicular unit extraction ( FUE ) requires a more nuanced approach. I performed this well using the single follicle extraction and transfer ( SFET ) method. Lessons: Nape hair is softer when compared to traditional head donor. This makes it ideal for the creation of softer looking (More natural) hairlines, thus avoiding the harsh artificial look that is often the giveaway for hair transplants.
