FUE Hair Transplant vs Strip Surgery: African American Hair Loss

This African American hair loss patient had a previous “strip harvesting” transplant and FUE hair transplant. One procedure left him with a strip surgery scar, and the other with insubstantial growth after 1 year. African American hair loss, being as prevalent as within any other ethnicity, is correctable via Dr. Umar’s FUE hair transplant method. Even a strip surgery scar can be vastly improved. Dispersing a total of 1200 grafts to the crown, hairline, and strip surgery scar, Dr. Umar eliminated the patient’s hair loss concerns.

This video shows results of an FUE hair transplant for African American hair loss.

African American Hair Loss and FUE Hair Transplant VS Strip Surgery

Strip Scar Minimized With Follicular Unit Extraction

This patient presented to Dr. Umar having had a previous hair transplant surgery that did NOT use follicular unit extraction for transplantation. The result was a visible strip scar. Using the FUE hair transplantation method, Dr. Umar was able to drastically minimize the patient’s strip scar.

The “strip harvesting method” may not only leave an embarrassing strip scar, but it also limits the number of donor hair to 5,000-7,000 follicles. The follicular unit extraction method increases the donor supply.

Watch this video to see how Dr. Umar might visibly reduce your strip scar using the FUE method.

Hair Loss Studies dealing with Hair Loss in Men

Several studies on hair loss have shown that the general time between initially noticing hair loss and seeking treatment is about six years. This is definitely more understandable because of the fact that hair loss is on average a gradual process. There is almost always that sad denial stage,and then the phase that patients hope that their hair loss will magically reverse itself and return to it’s natural site. Unfortunately, when looking at the history of hair loss within your family and the hair loss patterns of parents and close relatives, the inevitable is difficult to face. As with any condition, the sooner hair restoration treatment is commenced , the better the outcome. Many patients undergoing hair restoration surgery are becoming younger and younger each year. Starting hair loss treatment early is beneficial for the patient for a variety of reasons.

Hair Transplant Success Through Head and Body Hair

Success with Head and Body Hair

This patient’s severe baldness was exacerbated by bad transplants and several failed restoration surgeries done elsewhere. The aftermath:

  • Several large widened strip scars that wrapped around his head.
  • Scars in the crown and front from an attempt to suture a wig permanently to his head.
  • Poorly angled large plugs consisting of five- to six-hairs.
  • Severe pitting.
  • Depleted donor supply from his head.

He was told by several hair transplant doctors and clinics that he was beyond repair, and would have to wait for hair cloning or hair multiplication. By the time he came to Dr. Umar, he was desperate.

Using Follicular Unit Extraction, Dr. Umar transplanted over 16,000 grafts from the man’s chest, stomach area, arms and legs, along with 2,000 grafts from his beard and another 1,500 grafts from the nape of his neck.

By the time he was finished, Dr. Umar restored the patient’s receding hairline from and hid his scars, a hair transplant repair that would be impossible to achieve using outdated methods.

Asian Hair Loss: Transplant Success Using Follicular Unit Extraction

Transplant Success Using FUE

Though the technical procedure of Follicular Unit Extraction hair restoration is the same for all, there are some differences between ethnicities only an expert knows to take note of. Generally, Asian people have thicker hair follicles, which can result in the transplanted hairline ending up with a harsh, artificial look. But by using softer hair from the nape of the neck, Dr. Umar is able to consistently create an astonishingly natural look for Asian hair loss.

For this patient, 3,000 grafts were transplanted to create the new hairline. It was such a success that the patient has had a hard time convincing his professional barber that he has indeed had a hair transplant!

Dr. Umar – board certified and with years of hands-on experience – has restored the hairlines of every ethnic group, and understands the individual needs required. Hair restoration is for everyone, as his track record proves.
