Hair Transplant Sessions: 1
Grafts Implanted: 4500
Baldness Class: 6
Hair Transplant Repair Work
Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

Dr. Umar’s patient underwent a hair transplant surgery using body and head hair with 4500 grafts He wanted to repair an undesired outcome from a previous strip procedure (performed at another clinic) to correct a Norwood 6 level hair loss. However, his results left him struggling with continued sparseness, pluggy growth and a noticeable linear scar. 


After his first hair transplant, he continued to have some donor hair remaining on his scalp. However, this quantity was not enough to create the youthful looking coverage that he ideally desired. Therefore, he sought the help of Dr. Umar to include beard hair grafts as extra resources to achieve his vision.

Donor Pool of 4500 Grafts

Using UGraft, an Advanced Follicular Unit Extraction technology, Dr. Umar removed a combined donor supply consisting of head and beard hair, producing a total donor supply of 4500 grafts.

In developing his UGraft instrumentation, Dr. Umar worked with a team of engineers to design a special FUE punch that could safely extract sharply angled hair follicles such as those in the body and beard donor regions. This includes a curved cutting axis directed away from the follicle, a gentle pulling mechanic and a water transport system that gently takes the graft to a proper holding receptacle.

Furthermore, UGraft creates higher wound healing standards due to the shape of the excision cavity which is created. Any scarring that occurs is visually and cosmetically negligible. This is of particular importance on the face and other open areas. 

Patient’s Final Transformation

Due to the long distance of his residence from the clinic, the patient was not able to come into our office to have pictures and video taken. He created his own video footage (at 9 months) of his results and sent it to us. Click here

Images of his outcome show a much more youthful coverage and a flattering hairline/temple frame around his face which replaces the pluggy growth from before. 

Also greatly improved growth and density are shown in the top, crown and frontal scalp.
