Dr. Umar helps patient who visits novice clinic that over harvested

Without the right guidance, many hair transplant patients can fail to realize that a clinic may be ill-equipped to give the best type of treatment until it’s too late. Many times, hair transplant clinics often do not have the updated technology or foresight to map out the patient’s treatment.


The video above shows the results of how unequipped clinics have left a patient with visible scarring and continued baldness, as well as how Dr. Sanusi Umar was able to help him correct the damages using Advanced FUE by the UGraft method.

The unfortunate mistakes made by the clinic could have been avoided using a more advanced FUE method. With the use of body hair as a donor source, Dr U has shown success in repairing these hair transplant mistakes.
• Poor planning, which lead to a poor yield
• Overharvesting from only the patient’s head hair source
• The results of overharvesting left the patient with surgery scars and unnatural looking hair

Dr. Umar’s Advanced FUE using the UGraft system has shown promise in avoiding overharvesting non permanent hair which would lead to poor yield by using the “FUE Shave Test - FST” (which he first described in a recent publication in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal). Prior to surgery, the FUE Shave Test is used to fully determine the type of head hair donors that can successfully used. FST is a more dynamic way to determine the so called "safe donor area - SDA". It recognizes the fact that the true SDA varies from one balding patient to the other. 

Over a ten-year span, Dr. Umar has consistently been improving the techniques and procedures using the UGraft FUE system to ensure that overharvesting is no longer a trend.

After only five months the patient saw fuller coverage with Dr. Umar’s UGraft FUE system, as illustrated in the following photographs.

8 years after 3200 UGraft FUE Hair Transplantation by Dr U: Hair loss progression

The video above illustrates the subject of hair loss progression after hair transplants poignantly. Since hair loss is progressive, often time additional surgery is required to catch up with the effects of time at a later date. Importantly, it highlights what credible hair transplant clinics and doctors should discuss with all hair transplant patients at the time of first consultation. The patient should be given the full picture so they are able to make a rational decision with their long term interests and goals in mind. The younger the patient is at the time of surgery, the more time should be spent on this aspect of the consultation due to their unpredictable hair loss progression course. Read more about Dr U’s approach to hair transplantation in younger patients here.


After reconciling with the aforementioned variables discussed with Dr U for younger individuals, the patient in the video received 3200 grafts 8 years ago at the age of 26 from the nape area to restore receded temples and reconstruct his hairline.

After 8 years, the patient told Dr U he’s still thrilled at the impact the surgery has had in the 8 years since his surgery, according to the patients’ own words in the video. He inquired about doing a touch up surgery within a year or 2 to catch up with his hair loss progression. The following photos illustrate the patient’s visits with Dr. U, including his incredible results after the initial surgery and how he looks and feels about it all today.

Dr. Us Patient Repairs Past Strip Surgery Errors with 4213 BHT Grafts

This gentleman initially tried to conquer his male pattern baldness through a strip procedure performed at another clinic. However, his results were very disappointing. The operation exhausted his head donor supply. Yet, many of the inserted grafts did not grow. Thus, his crown continued to be bald. Some growth did occur on top of his head. But this created an unusual wall of hair in front of the crown. Furthermore, the strip scar was an additional source of worry as the patient did not want other people to notice it. 


In order to conceal the scar and cover the areas of missing hair, more donor grafts were needed beyond the quantity that remained on his head. Therefore, the patient felt that a body hair to head transplant was a very logical choice for achieving his objectives.

4213 Grafts of Head and Beard Hair

Since Dr. U had developed technology specifically for body hair extractions (i.e. UGraft ™ Revolution) and possesses an extensive track record of tangible patient success stories, the patient decided to chose our clinic for his procedure. 

Dr. U removed the following types of follicles to create an overall donor supply of 4213 grafts.

(1) 1472 grafts of beard hair
(2) 2741 grafts of head hair

Hair was carefully inserted into the crown, temples, hairline and strip scar to produce the results shown in these before and after images.

Dr. Us Patient Returns for 2000 Additional BHT Grafts

In this video, Dr. U discusses the different areas of the patient’s procedure that were targeted. This includes his hairline and temples which were designed and created through a very and meticulous approach to ensure a very gradual and seamless transition to the rest of the hair.


Overall, the patient’s final outcome were contingent on two main factors:

(1) coverage
(2) detailed placement of the graft insertions

The extent of coverage was of course dependent on the vast graft quantity which was extracted. Given the patient’s depleted donor supply, this quantity was made possible through the use of Dr. U’s UGraft technology. This instrument is designed for the safe harvesting of follicles from the beard area as well as optimized wound healing results. 

Beyond extractions, the natural looking quality of the patient’s outcome was due to proper planning and Dr. U’s ability to recreate realistic growth patterns unique to the patient through specific slit creation parameters.

Celebrity Hair Transplant With FUE By Dr. Umar

Bernardo de Paula is the actor who plays Beto in the Showtime series, Shameless. He was concerned about his hair loss, particularly in the hairline area and crown. Aside from the fact that appearances are highly linked to career opportunities and success in the entertainment industry, Bernardo felt that his progressive baldness was affecting his confidence as well.

Because hair transplantation has come a long way in the development of tools and techniques that enable doctors to produce very realistic results, more celebrities are turning to surgery to address issues with male pattern hair loss. And indeed, we are also seeing an emerging trend of high profile individuals speaking quite openly about their procedures. This not only includes Mr. de Paulo whose video is included here, but also other celebrities like Wayne Rooney, James Nesbitt (actor) and Marc Jacobs.

Calum Best, an actor, model and reality show star, underwent FUE. And he also feels there is no reason to be so secretive about hair surgery, as most onlookers respond quite positively to quality results.

Crown and Hairline Restoration With Follicular Unit Extraction

Bernardo de Paulo was experiencing hairline recession and emptiness in the crown. Dr. Umar performed an FUE hair transplant to harvest head donor grafts and insert them into these areas. Finer nape hair was used to create a softer and more natural looking hairline edge.

Eyebrow Transplant With 300 uGrafts of Fine Leg Hairs

Eyebrow restoration is a procedure that is often chosen by male patients in addition to women. The patient in the photos and video below had very sparse eyebrows. They almost looked non existent, causing him to feel self conscious about his appearance. This was exacerbated by a comment that a family member made at a gathering.

Dr. Umar used 300 grafts of hair from the patient's leg to create the density that he wanted. Like nape hair, leg hair is also a close match for eyebrow hair.
