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.
