Hair Restoration procedures for patients that wish to use follicular unit extractiononly leaves no visible scarring in the recipient area, usually found in traditional strip surgeries. Using Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Single Follicle Extraction Transfer (SFET) derived specifically by Dr. Umar at Dermhair Clinic, any type of scarring is virtually invisible. FUE, SFET is the future of hair transplantation. Dr. Sanusi Umarof Dermhair clinic can uniquely offer the strip scar repair results that many people seek out.
Usually when older methods of hair transplantationsurgery are used, those current techniques (like strip surgery) are typically performed improperly or, less commonly, with staff assistants that are not certified to do such work. Also, the patients may be poor healers, and scarring may be so excessive that it becomes apparently too visible. The scarring may be due to the hair plug, it may be caused by the height or dejection of grafts, or it may be due to the extended scar in the donor area.
Scarring in the donor area, usually being the back of the head, can be totally minimized using Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplantation. For patients who want to get rid of their strip scar, FUE can be the answer.Dr. Sanusi Umar uses his own method, Single Follicle Unit Transfer (SFET), widely known as the Umar Procedure. Dr. Umar is known for being the world’s leading FUE repair surgeon, and has many cases where repair work is apparent in his work. Dr. Umar is a pioneer of Body Hair Transplantation, which uses hair from different parts of the body as donor areas for hair transplantation.
In one case, Dr. Umar performed a FUE, SFET procedure on a patient with depleted donor hair due to a previous surgery at another clinic. The patient experienced a NW3 pattern hair loss, and several strip scars were also visible. With his donor limitations he came to Dr. Umar to have non head hair used to restore his loss and camouflage his scars. Dr. Umar used 3,400 grafts from the nape and beard area.
