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later the improvement was obvious, with fuller hair along the back and sides of his head, and no scars caused by the outdated method of strip harvesting.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.

This is a 19 month update of this patient and the second video.

In this case Dr. Umar uses his Single Follicle Extraction and Transfer (SFET) method of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedure to refine and advance a NW3 case using 3500 grafts derived from the head donor area and nape to create a soft natural hairline and restore him from NW 3 to a state of zero appearance of baldness.

For the treatment of baldness (hair loss), Dr Umar uses a group of techniques to perform hair transplantion called Single Follicle Extraction and Transfer (SFET). This is his version of the hair restoration procedure commonly referred to as Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). SFET enables Dr Umar to utilize donor hair outside the confines of widely available traditional methods. Thus hair from the beard and body areas are also used. This is especially useful in severely bald individuals or those whose head donor supply has been decimated by antiquated techniques. When none head hair is used for transplantation, it is called body hair transplantation ( BHT ).
The procedure is performed at his Redondo Beach office in California.
