Historic First: Body Hair Transplant Restores Balding Head: 8,000 Grafts

Never before has this type of hair restoration been done to such success.

This patient came to Dr. Umar with, to be honest, a near-total bald crown. The patient was experiencing natural hair thinning (no extra loss due to scarring caused by “strip harvesting”), and was after a solution.

In one session, Dr. Umar relocated 8,000 individual hair grafts from the man’s beard and donor areas of his head using Follicular Unit Extraction.

As you can see, the result was life changing. Through Body Hair Transplant (BHT), this patient now has a new lease on life.

Follicular Unit Extraction v. Strip Harvesting: The Winner Is….

“Strip harvesting” usually requires cutting strips of flesh from the back and side of the head, resulting in a linear scar that can widen overtime, and forcing you to continually find ways to hide it. The older method also limits the donor supply to 5,000-7,000 hair follicles, a huge waste.

Scarring is a huge issue with the strip approach, but not with FUE and the advanced uGraft method taken by Dr. Umar. Follicular Unit Extraction is a minimally invasive procedure that leaves no linear scarring, as can be seen in this video featuring a patient who was so desperate to hide his scars he resorted to tattoos. With regards to yield, it is a myth to imply that one method yields better growth than the other. The video highlight the importance of going to s skilled doctor in whatever method you choose (strip or FUE), as a poorly skilled doctor (whether FUT or FUE) can lead to suboptimal results. The inherent pros and cons of each method not withstanding, the experience of the provider is of paramount importance

Crew Cut After Hair Transplant? Not a Problem With Follicular Unit Extraction: 1,200 Grafts

The outdated hair transplant method of “strip harvesting” leaves those who have endured it with no appreciable difference in hair restoration, along with an unsightly scar to remind them of the failed effort. This scarring also greatly reduces their personal style choices, because it is all but impossible to sport a tight crew cut when you need your hair to hide the scars.

This patient did what we at DermHair Clinic have seen many do – resort to tattoos in a desperate attempt to hide the scars left by “strip harvesting.” Dr. Umar helped him by using the patient’s body hair (body hair to head transplant) to camouflage the scar, transplanting 1,200 individual hair follicles to the problem area.

Strip Transplant Hairlines – Can They Be Softened?

A harsh hairline is common with the older strip method of hair transplantation because it uses hair from the middle and back of your head, which is thickest. This patient has had a good quality hair transplant from a top clinic specializing in the older strip method, but wanted a softer hairline.

Dr. Umar used 1,000 grafts from the nape of the patient’s neck and head to create a more natural look through Follicular Unit Extraction. In the video below you can see the results about one year later.

Baldness Reversed Using Body Hair and Follicular Unit Extraction

The patient in this video did not have enough donor hair on his head to meet the needs of repairing his severe hair loss and balding crown.

Dr. Umar used a combination of hair from the patient’s head, body and beard (called body hair transplant) to transfer over 15,000 grafts to the damaged area. Nine months later the improvement was obvious, with fuller hair along the back and sides of his head, and no scars caused by the outdated method of strip harvesting. There’s even plenty of head and body hair left in donor areas should touch-ups be needed down the road.

The patient was also pleased with the style options available to him due to Follicular Unit Extraction; he was able to sport a crew cut without the fear of exposing a linear scar!

The patient presented in this video had severe hair loss, and was not ready to settle for a bald crown and a higher aged hairline that a traditional hair transplantation would have offered. Having estimated that his head donor supply cannot meet his demand for global coverage, he visited Dr. Umar with the hopes of using BHT and the Umar procedure. Using a combination of head, body and beard hair, Dr. Umar was able to transfer over 15,000 grafts to his entire balding area. The result at 9 months (with still more improvement to occur) is fuller hair with the back and sides of the head still looking pristine and not overharvested and devoid of a strip scar that could have limited his hair styling options significantly. After his procedure with Dr. Umar, the patient was able to sport a crew cut without the fear of exposing a linear scar, and even is left with an ample supply of head and body donor hair for any touch ups or to address future progression of baldness.
