Age Reversing Hairline Restoration With 3,000 uGrafts Performed By Dr. Umar

This hair transplant patient grew increasingly unhappy with his appearance due to the way his hairline and temples had receded. He started losing hair in his late twenties and finally decided to do something about the issue in his late forties. Dr. Umar extracted 3,000 uGrafts from the head and nape to create a natural looking hairline and temple points that would be most attractive in appearance for this patient's face. The patient's feedback was that this was the best investment he has ever made in himself.

12,000 uGrafts Reverses Severe Baldness in Norwood 7 Patient

Those with severe baldness are often given two standard recommendations: (1) shaving their entire head (2) wearing a hair piece This patient, however, did not want either option. Instead, he wanted to have real hair growth on his head. Dr. Umar was able to harvest grafts from the patient's beard areas and combined this with head hair. The patient was able to achieve significant coverage during his first procedure which used 8,000 uGrafts. He returned for a second session a year later for greater density. 4,000 additional grafts were applied. Here is a video which features his personal feedback along with reactions that he received from other people.

Body Hair Transplant, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) by Dr. Umar

This hair transplant patient underwent a prior FUT/strip harvesting surgery that yielded subpar results. He was still bald, with only sparse, uneven coverage, obvious linear scarring, and a pluggy hairline. He wanted another hair restoration surgery to conceal the damage and create global density, but his extreme case was limitinghe would require the employ of body hair transplant (BHT) for a successful outcome.

Dr. Sanusi Umar of DermHair Clinic is a world-leading BHT surgeon. Over the course of two sessions, he was able to take a total of 14,000 grafts from the patient's beard, chest and nape of the neck using his uGraft device. The first session harvested 9,000 grafts and the second harvested 5,000. This megasession made the patient's goals a reality.

The results shown are from 11 months after the second session, and the transformation is apparent. "I used a hairpiece for fourteen years," the patient said, "but now my life is completely, completely changed. I can swim, I can go in the wind. I feel free."

UGraft Follicular Unit Extraction Hair Transplant by Dr. Umar - 1500 Grafts

In this video, this hair transplant patient wanted help for his receding hairline. The advancement of his hair loss also caused the top part of his head to thin.

Dr. Umar restored hair in these regions by performing Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and his own proprietary tool called uGraft. 1500 grafts were derived from the head and nape.

In FUE, doctors will extract natural groupings of 1-4 hair follicles (called follicular units) directly from the scalp or other area of the body.

In conventional strip surgery, doctors will excise a horizontal strip of hair bearing skin from the back (or sides) of the head. This is then divided into individual grafts. However, individuals are left with a linear scar.

The patient in this video discusses an interaction with an acquaintance who underwent strip surgery for the restoration of his hair. "I told him that I had a surgery. He couldn't believe it at first. And then he said, well, where is your scar? And I said look at it. And he looked for five minutes. He could not believe he couldn't find one spot on my head where it looked like there was a cut, or a scar or anything that looked damaged."

Another advantage to using Follicular Unit Extraction is it's versatility. Doctors can be selective about the type of hair they want to use to create the final result. Since the hairline is what people notice the most, it is important to create a natural quality.

This is achieved by using finer hairs from the back of the neck which are used to create a soft feathered look at the outer edge of the hairline. With strip surgery, this cannot be done.

The patient is very pleased with his new hairline. In his younger years, his hairline ran straight across his forehead, making it look bigger than what he would have liked. The point helps to balance out the height of his forehead.

FUE Hair Transplant Repair of a Juri Hair Flap Hairline by Dr.Umar

Flap surgeries for the purpose of hair restoration and hair replacement have largely fallen out of favor with the advent of follicular unit hair transplantation, today's modern surgical hair restoration procedures.

Technical terms include Temperoparietal-occipital (aka Juri flaps or later modifications -Fleming Mayer) and temperoparietal flaps ( Elliot flaps ). Problems associated with these surgeries are mostly found in the esthetics of the hairline. Commonly, the hairline is too straight, defined necessarily by a scar, a backwardly directed hair angle and abnormally blunted temporal recesses.

In this hair transplant video, Dr Umar uses his follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique (Single Follicle Extraction and Transfer - SFET) to solve the aforementioned problems in a patient that had undergone Juri flap procedure several years prior.
