Default A 9000 graft Body Hair to Head Transplant Repair - Dr Umar

Before Surgery:
This patient had a prior surgery at another clinic, which left him with:
  • A pluggy hairline
  • An empty vertex and crown
  • Rows of egregiously placed plugs in an empty crown
  • Linear scars
  • Severely depleted donor area
Unhappy with these results, he resorted to wearing a hairpiece for years to cover these problems. He presented to Dr. Umar requesting global coverage using non-head hair.

Surgery:
Surgeries were performed in 2 phases:

Phase I: 9000 grafts using head, nape, beard and chest derived grafts.
Phase II: 5000 grafts using mainly beard and chest hair. A few chest grafts were used to refine his eyebrows as well.

Phase I Surgery Results:
Images and video are from 10 months post-first operation. Results from second surgery will be posted soon.

cant wait to see results from second surgery.... the good thing about this patient is that his skin is dark and gives a better illusion of coverage.. if he were lighter in skin texture he would be a lot more bald then he looks but great job ...

Can't wait to see results of surgery #2. It seems like there is hope for people who don't have enough donor, but have body hair. Phase 1 is a decent result, I do think he can have more density, but it is still quite impressive considering the area that was to be covered. Hairline does look decent, but again, I think a little more density in the center. Was that one of the areas addressed in the second surgery?

The more I think about this, the more I realize that body hair might not be a bad idea when it comes to filling in thinning areas around the crown/vertex and midscalp. I mean if you lack density in those areas, I am sure body hair can substantially make a difference and still seem natural. For those that lack density, this may be something to consider vs using toppik/dermatch/couvre rest of your life to fill in those small gaps.

Great work Dr. Umar.

This is the type of HT I need. This definitely gives me some hope. Thanks for posting this. Can we get any ideas of cost involved in these types of HTs?

incredible!

i'm sure anyone coming into their hairloss research clean would consider this a hoax and quite impossible, but here we are, in a 'good result' case the outcome can be really good.

So, in theory, i can take all my body hair (including butt hair?) and stick it on my head, science fiction it seems but possible in the right cases?

I gather, doing this type of transplant is still taboo in the hairloss community, am i right?

Best of luck to the chap that got the work done, and well done to the team involved, i hope the hair holds out and grows well.

One more thing, 9000 grafts? how many hairs?

Regards,
57mph

Now I will admit that BHT is not the first route I would take in restoring my hair. But I am not a NW7 either. It clearly worked for this fellow even if the hairs are a bit kinky and wiry. He might not have limitless styling options but he now has hair. His darker skin tones certainly help with the illusion of density. I am sure with some concealers he looks like a million bucks. I am happy to see Dr. Umar put out results like this even though I still consider BHT a last resort when it comes to hair transplantation. Keep posting Dr. Umar!

It's only a hoax to the uninformed. The proof is in the video. There is nothing to keep hair from growing on ones scalp, provided it is removed safely and transplanted properly

It is science fiction if it has never been done before. Now that it is being performed regularly it is reality.

Taboo by a community not involved in performing this type of surgery.

The way I am seeing this as is:

If you have enough body hair that you don't want, why not add it in as filler on the scalp? I don't think it looks too unnatural. I think it depends on the type of body hair you have too. If it is thin and straight, or curly, or pube like. That may play a factor on the outcome and I guess not everyone will be a candidate for it either. In these results it seems that body hair/beard hair does grow longer on the scalp then it probably does on the chest.

As a technology available today, body hair, may be the route to take if people want to get OFF finasteride and other medications and everything else. Say if you lack some density, and you are taking finasteride and rogaine and using toppik for those areas. Why not just fill it up with your own hair, be it body hair, to recover lost density?

It's not a bad idea, I mean if cloning or Replicel does not come up with something by 2016, then this maybe something that might get bigger and bigger. Right now, it seems Dr. Umar does master this as I have never seen such body hair or beard hair transplantations done with success. It is starting to look more and more promising.

For those guys with higher norwoods, this may be a dream come true.
