Eyebrow Transplant Segment on Good Morning America Features Dr. Umar

Eyebrow transplant sounds crazy, right? But, as Elisabeth Leamey of ABC News says, “If your eyes are the window to your soul, then your eyebrows are the frame.” Nowadays, having a full shapely frame is the hot thing in cosmetics. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Brooke Shields are leading the trend. Unfortunately, many women who’ve plucked their eyebrows too thin in the past or are losing eyebrow hair due to aging can’t grow the gorgeous eyebrows they desire.

Good Morning America has the story on a permanent solution to this problem: eyebrow transplant. And Dr. Umar is the hair transplant surgeon to see if you’re considering the treatment. GMA visited his Redondo Beach based practice, DermHair Clinic, to get a closer look at surgical eyebrow restoration and interview some of his patients.

Dr. Umar’s Eyebrow Transplant Patients

Dr. Umar is a world-leading surgeon of the follicular unit extraction (FUE) procedure and the inventor of an advanced tool called uGraft. uGraft enables the safe and efficient excision of both traditional and non-traditional donor hairs—or hair from the nape of the neck and body. This sets Dr. Umar apart from other practitioners, since he can create the most highly sought aesthetic outcomes in hair transplant—and eyebrow transplant, no less.

Using the sophisticated uGraft, Dr. Umar has refined eyebrow transplant and given several women and men the full, shapely arches they desire. One of his patients, Pamela Pemrose, had to use eyebrow pencil everyday for ten years to fill her brows to the thickness she wanted. This application was not only tedious but “It’s a little embarrassing,” said Pamela. “It affects my self esteem.” After undergoing the procedure with Dr. Umar she says her brows are exactly what she wanted. Good Morning America also interviewed a couple more of his patients. Shannon Morrison and Sarah Tirosh showed off the pleasing results of their eyebrow restoration surgeries.

Eyebrow Transplant is More than Just Cosmetic

As one of the Good Morning America news anchors remarks, eyebrow transplant is not only for people who want thicker arches or a different brow shape for cosmetic purposes. For many, having the possibility of permanent, natural-looking eyebrows is essential. There are many diseases and ailments that leave the afflicted with a devastating loss of facial hair, including the eyebrows. Eyebrow restoration surgery can be used simply to make patients feel normal and look like themselves again.

Before and After Follicular Unit Extraction to Restore Crown- 1200 Grafts

This patient sought hair loss help from Dr. Umar, one of the best Follicular Unit Extraction hair transplant doctors in the world.  He had lost a considerable amount of hair in his crown area. This individual had an ample supply of  thriving follicles on his head.  Dr. Umar was able to extract 1200 grafts  from this region.

In Follicular Unit Extraction, patients do not have to worry about a large scar in the end. Each graft (a natural grouping of 1-4 follicles, known as a Follicular Unit) is derived directly from the scalp. Sometimes these extractions are performed on other donor regions on the body, such as the face and chest.

By contrast, the older method of strip surgery requires a horizontal excision of scalp tissue.  This is further dissected into individual grafts that are inserted into the bald regions.  A large scar will result from this type of hair transplant procedure. And patients usually wear their hair in longer styles to hide this.

With Follicular Unit Extraction, individuals can choose long or short styles since there are no scars. After the follicular grafts are extracted, there are usually small round wounds about the size of a pencil point.  However these will usually heal completely in about several weeks.

Crown Hair Restoration

When it comes to crown hair restoration, the doctor must determine the natural pattern of growth for the individual patient.  This includes determining the center of the whorl, and creating slits according to the right orientation and growth angle.  The grafts are then inserted into these slits.  By paying proper attention to these growth patterns, the results of the crown restoration will be inconspicuous compared to the rest of the hair.

Before and After Follicular Unit Extraction Hair Transplant to Restore Thinning Hair and Hairline-1500 uGrafts

 

The patient in this video chose a Follicular Unit Extraction procedure. Like many men, he  experienced hairline recession followed by thinning in the top part of his head.

Dr. Umar was able to restore these areas using uGraft (his proprietary hair transplant tool) to extract 1500 follicular units.

In the video, the patient talks about his friend who also had a hair transplant procedure. However his results were achieved with strip surgery.  According to the patient, the scar (on the friend) “was very noticeable…and I told him that I had surgery. He couldn’t believe it at first.  And then he said, well, where’s your scar? And I said, look at it. And he looked for five minutes.  He could not believe that he could not find one spot on my head where it looked like there was a a cut or a scar.”

Those who are considering any type of hair transplant should educate themselves on Follicular Unit Extraction and other methods before making a final decision.

Differences Between Follicular Unit Extraction and Strip Surgery

In strip surgery, doctors will excise a horizontal area from the back or sides of the head where this is strong hair growth.  Individual grafts are then extracted from this strip and reinserted into the bald areas.  This will inevitably leave a large scar.  People often try to conceal this with longer hair styles.

With Follicular Unit Extraction,  the grafts (which consist of natural groupings of 1-4 hairs) are taken directly from the scalp.  This is why there is no scar. Another advantage of FUE is that hair follicles can be taken from just about anywhere. This includes the nape and even areas of the body like the chest and face.  Finer caliber hairs can be extracted for natural looking details, such as the edge of the hairline.  Hairs taken from the back or sides will be too thick, giving an artificial look appearance. And this is usually a giveaway that the person has had a hair transplant procedure.

Hairline Restoration

Because the hairline borders the face, people notice this area the most.  Besides using thinner hairs to create a soft edge, a good hairline restoration must suit the patient’s face.

The patient in the video naturally had a straight hairline in his youth. However, it made his forehead look very large.  Follicular Unit Extraction allowed Dr. Umar to create a point in the middle so that his forehead was less noticeable.  And the patient was very happy with this decision.

Body Hair Transplant Megasession of 14,000 Grafts–11 Month Update

This patient’s battle with pattern baldness first delivered him to surgical hair restoration using the strip method, or follicular unit transplant (FUT). The FUT surgery outcome was significantly substandard; it resulted in almost no yield, obvious linear scars, a crown filled with displaced grafts, and a pluggy hairline. Ultimately, the patient was still bald and in great need of a corrective procedure.

He came to DermHair Clinic for his repair, which consisted of a two-session process utilizing body hair transplant (BHT).  Dr. Umar transplanted 9,000 grafts in the first session and 5,000 grafts in the second session. Both sessions harvested donor hair from the chest and beard, as well as some from the nape.

Eleven months have passed since hair restoration session number two. The grafts have grown and matured even more, showing denser coverage, and visible progress in general. This repair surgery would not have been possible without using BHT.

 

uGraft Hair Transplant Repair—12,500 FUE Grafts

This patient had undergone several prior efforts at hair restoration surgery since the age of 18 and was continually faced with discouraging results. Numerous scalp reductions only produced ongoing baldness, with the addition of surgical scars. He came to Dr. Umar with the understanding that his hair loss was severe and he was in need of FUE hair transplant repair.

Using his self-developed, revolutionary uGraft tool Dr. Umar restored the patient from his advanced state of baldness, while adding enough density to cover the scars. He harvested 12,500 FUE grafts total, comprised of donor hairs from the scalp and beard. Using a non-traditional source of donor hair is the only means by which it was possible to provide the patient with a successful hair restoration surgery.

At only nine months after the final session, the patient has seen a significant improvement in global density and scar concealment. “Dr. Umar has exceeded my expectations,” he said of his FUE hair transplant repair. “I can cut my hair so much shorter now.” Video and photos were provided by the patient.

 

9,000 Grafts Beard and Body Hair Transplant Repair with uGraft

Numerous prior hair restoration procedures—involving both FUE and strip harvesting—left this patient with disappointing results. He still had major thinning across the top third of his scalp, now with unnatural graft placement and linear scars to conceal. He sought out Dr. Umar for his expertise in body hair transplant and hair transplant repair.

Dr. Umar extracted 9,000 FUE grafts over the course of two surgeries to restore this patient’s density and hairline. His signature tool, uGraft, was used to harvest hairs mainly from the beard and body, and a small number from the head as well. The patient now has a youthful head of hair, a natural-looking hairline, and feels confident enough in the concealment of his scars to wear a short haircut.

“If you’re unhappy with losing hair, then definitely come to Dr. Umar,” the patient advises all hair loss sufferers.

FUE Hair Transplant With 2300 Grafts Made This Patient Believe

This patient had a previous hair restoration surgery done elsewhere, but it yielded subpar results. Afterward, he had an ever-present hairline recession and thinning at the crown. Desiring an FUE hair transplant to fill these areas once and for all, he came to DermHair Clinic.

Dr. Umar constructed a new hairline and filled the patients crown with a total of 2300 grafts. The hairline and temple points were built of 1800 FUE grafts harvested from the head and nape. It only took 500 FUE grafts from the rear scalp to add density to the crown. The results are an advanced hairline and a denser crown, just as the patient wanted. Eleven months post-operation, the patient is smiling and satisfied.

Along with the restoration of hair, the patient’s hope in the capacity of FUE hair transplant was also restored. “This place is going to make you a believer again,” he says, followed by the advice that Dr. Umar’s advanced FUE is the best in hair transplant.

Youthful Hairline Restored With uGraft FUE Hair Transplant—1500 Grafts

This patient presented to Dr. Umar concerned about a receded hairline and a strip scar on the back of his head. He’d had a prior strip harvesting surgery that provided inadequate long-term growth and gave him the infamous linear scar. Clearly, he wanted a more youthful hairline and the strip scar filled in.

After extracting 1500 grafts from the patient’s head and nape, Dr. Umar’s advanced FUE hair transplant using uGraft proved successful yet again. The outcome of this second procedure is far superior to the first, and has provided the patient with exactly what he wanted: a youthful hairline and no linear scar in sight.

The FUE hair transplant also prevailed over the strip harvesting technique in regard to healing time. The patient told Dr. Umar that his advanced uGraft procedure simply gave him “two weeks of redness [and] a couple ingrown hairs,” while the strip procedure proffered a “long” healing time, and a scar to boot.

In regard to his results at only 7 months, the patient said, “I couldn’t be happier, honestly.”

FUE Hair Transplant: 2850 Grafts Repairs And Restores

A strip harvesting hair transplant didn’t get this patient the results he desired. And one year post-follicular unit extraction surgery of several thousand grafts, the patient still didn’t have the yield he wanted. His hairline, temple points, and frontal scalp were sparse, clearly having receded. What’s more, he also had to deal with the strip scar on the back of his head.

The patient decided to trust Dr. Umar’s expertise in advanced follicular unit extraction hair transplant. He made it clear to Dr. Umar that he wanted to add density to the front of his scalp, he wanted his hairline refined, and he wanted the strip scar covered up. Using his signature FUE SFET technique with 2500 head hair grafts and 350 beard hair grafts, Dr. Umar successfully completed the procedure. The 2500 grafts were implanted at the frontal scalp for density, with a concentration of nape hair used to create a soft, gradual hairline. The 350 grafts were used strictly to conceal the patient’s strip scar.

Four years after his second follicular unit extraction hair transplant, the patient is finally satisfied. The long-term graft survival of Dr. Umar’s FUE SFET surpassed his expectations.
