About the FUE Hair Transplant Procedure
Dr. Umar enhances follicular unit extraction with the uGraft harvesting tool. Its customizable punch—no larger than 1.2 millimeters in size—reduces transection and graft burial rates, thereby increasing the quantity of viable grafts. This improves the final result of the FUE hair transplant in two ways:
- It amplifies density
- It enables the safe extraction of non-traditional hair (i.e. nape, beard, and body hair) to create the best aesthetic, especially for the hairline and eyebrows

Hair Restoration by uGraft Using Head Donors
For patients with sufficient scalp hair remaining, Dr. Umar employs his FUE method by excising hair from the head only. In these cases, donors come from the back and/or sides of the scalp. This may incorporate nape hair for hairline design as needed.

Hair Restoration by uGraft Using Beard and Body Donors
Dr. Umar is a pioneer of beard and body hair transplant. These methods can incorporate donors from the face, shoulders, chest, stomach, arms, and legs. Such non-traditional hair is used for patients with insufficient scalp supply that makes them inoperable by any other means. These are usually sufferers of male pattern baldness at levels NW 5, 6, or 7; or people who’ve endured burns, surgical scarring, or disease. With uGraft, the use of beard and body hair is safe and effective.

Repair of Failed Hair Transplant Surgeries
Hair restoration can fail for a number of reasons, the most common being a novice surgeon or an antiquated technique. Strip scars, scalp reduction, and flap surgeries are common offenders. These procedures have often yielded unsightly scars and unsatisfactory growth. But there is still a chance for repair. uGraft leaves visibly negligible scarring in typical cases and, with harvest extended to the beard and body, there is no shortage of donor hair. Dr. Umar repairs failed surgeries by concealing old scars and producing satisfactory global growth.

Hair Restoration for Women
Women frequently experience hair loss, especially as they age. With social and cultural definitions of hair and beauty, female pattern baldness is a devastating condition. Traction alopecia, lupus, and trichotillomania are additional causes of permanent hair loss commonly seen in women. Hair transplant is no less a treatment option for women than it is for men. Dr. Umar has successfully performed FUE hair restoration on several women; as well as body hair transplant in severe cases.

Eyebrow Transplant – Hair Restoration for the Eyebrows
Eyebrow hair transplant has become a popular cosmetic procedure with FUE. Since follicular unit extraction is minimally invasive and leaves little scarring there is nothing to lose. Furthermore, for this procedure, it employs donor hair from the legs, arms, and nape to create the most natural-looking and low-maintenance result.

Hair Restoration For the Eyelashes
The appearance of longer eyelashes can be achieved with false lashes, lash extensions and even an FDA approved drug. However, these measures require an ongoing investment of time and finances which may be inconvenient for some people. Surgery to insert nape follicle grafts into the upper lash line may be a more feasible way to actually attain real hair growth. Nape hair is a more realistic match for real lashes
The only maintenance required is regular trimming and curling which only requires minimal investment of time.

Hair Restoration For Special Cases
The scalp and eyebrows are not the only places where unwanted hair loss can occur. Special cases are those rare hair loss experiences that require restoration in non-traditional areas. For example, a man who genetically can’t grow an even beard but wants to, or patchy body hair loss due to scars, burns, or other trauma. Dr. Umar’s uGraft hair transplant is one of the first to be able to diffusely excise body hair from one area to fill an obvious bald patch in another area of the body.
