Hair Transplant Surgeon: Dr. Sanusi Umar

Hair transplant surgery with beard hair as donor supply

Hair Transplant Sessions: 2
Grafts Implanted: 10500
Baldness Class: 7
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT/Strip)

Before Surgery:

Patient suffered with the most extreme genetic hair loss—Norwood 7
No prior surgeries, but used a hairpiece to conceal baldness
Patient was tired of the hairpiece and wanted a permanent solution; adequate crown coverage and a conservative hairline


Goal: Build satisfying density across the crown and mid-top and craft a modest, yet complimentary hairline
Using the uGraft, Dr. Umar transplanted 10,500 grafts from the beard and scalp over the course of two sessions; beard hair transplant was the best solution considering the high need for coverage and the limited scalp donor supply

Surgery Results:

Results show the patient at 6 months after the second session (he recorded the result video himself)
Body and beard hair transplant generally allow for up to two years until the hair has completely grown in and matured, so he has even more improvement to look forward to.
