Acne keloidalis nuchae—AKN—is a condition that starts as papules and pustules in the hair follicle and manifests in inflamed and painful keloidlike lesions, developing on the occipital scalp and/or rear neck. It sometimes appears as razor bumps on the back of the head at first. This uncomfortable mass of tissue created by AKN has no relation to acne vulgaris but, rather, is a type of chronic folliculitis. Where the skin is distressed by the condition, there is also a disruption of the normal growth of hair. For this reason, AKN is considered a cause of cicatricial alopecia. The featured patient […]
Eight months after his FUE hair restoration, this patient has the full, natural-looking hairline he desired. He wanted a hairline transplant to fix his temple point recession, but wanted a conservative repair and no scarring.

If you’re considering a hairline transplant, watch this video to find out if an FUE hair restoration is the solution for you.
“I don’t remember my hair ever being this thick,” a Dr. Umar patient said after recovery from his FUE procedure.

If you are interested in a crown hair transplant through FUE, see the success with your own eyes; watch this video of Dr. Umar’s satisfied patient.
This patient suffered from a near-complete NW 6 hair loss. With head donor hair nearly depleted, he needed body hair transplantation – BHT to restore his thinning hair. Dr. Umar transplanted 20,000 grafts—5,000 head, 15,000 body—to complete this patient’s Restoration. He underwent two BHT surgeries, spaced one year apart. Twelve months after the second surgery, the results are amazing. Thinning hair is no longer a concern for this patient, as his severe NW 6 hair loss is now a thing of the past. According to Dr Umar, patients with rellative or absolute lack of donor supply either because of severe […]
Many treatments for hair loss fall short and in some instance have resulted in disastrous outcomes. This patient tried several treatments for hair loss, which resulted in botched outcomes that worsened his loss of hair, leaving him scarred and deformed. At other clinics, he’d tried the double flap procedure, several scalp reductions, and the “strip harvesting” method. These treatments for hair loss all left the patient with worse results and further loss of hair. The patient presented to Dr. Umar for hair transplant repair using the body hair transplant technique that he perfected. Because his past surgeries had depleted his head donor […]
Dr. Umar used his FUE method of hair transplantation to replenish this patient’s receding hairline. 3500 FUE grafts were taken from the patient’s head and nape of the neck. Dr. Umar then transplanted the donor hair follicles in the receding hairline area. Nineteen months post-surgery, the patient’s receding hairline is no longer detectable. He now has a full and healthy-looking hairline due to the innovation of FUE.
This patient came to Dr. Umar after having had a quality hair transplant at another clinic. The previous procedure left him needing a hairline transplant, due to the fact that he had a harsh, unnatural-looking hairline. Using follicular unit extraction, Dr. Umar transferred 1,000 grafts from the patient’s head and nape of his neck to complete the hairline transplant. Thanks to follicular unit extraction, the patient now has the hairline he desired. If you desire a more gradual hairline, this example shows that this aim is certainly feasible.
The “strip harvesting” method takes donor hair from the place of thickest hair density: the back of the head. Besides leaving a strip scar, this method may leave the patient with a severe, unnatural-looking hairline. This patient had that experience at a previous clinic. He came to Dr. Umar for an FUE hairline restoration, desiring less hair density in that area. Dr. Umar transplanted 1,000 FUE grafts for a hairline restoration that would achieve a more natural look. Do you need a hairline repair or more natural hair density? Watch this video to see the results of an FUE procedure. […]
A previous “strip harvesting” procedure left this patient with strip scars, a pluggy hairline, and an unfilled crown. He badly needed a crown hair restoration, but lacked sufficient scalp donor hair. Using a body hair transplant of 9000 grafts from the patient’s beard, chest, nape of neck, and head, Dr. Umar achieved a total crown hair restoration. The level of success attained would not have been possible without a body hair transplant. If you need to correct a past hair surgery, watch this video to consider what a body hair transplant might do for you.
Dr. Umar provided a complete FUE hair restoration for this patient. The patient came to him with a receding hairline, crown hair loss, and strip scar from a previous procedure. Using the FUE method, 2900 grafts were taken from the patient’s head and nape of his neck, and 300 from the beard. The hair restoration looks natural and full. His receding hairline, crown hair loss, and strip scar are clearly no longer a concern. Are you suffering with a receding hairline or embarrassing crown hair loss?
