  1. This teenager lost his right eyebrow and beard hair growth due to the placement of skin grafts that replaced a large congenital nevus mole. Dr.U accepted this young man’s case through his pro bono organization, The Hair Peace Foundation. Due to the fine quality of the patient’s existing eyebrow and beard hair (on the left side), it became absolutely necessary to select the closest graft match. In the end, this would create a natural looking symmetrical appearance on both sides of the face. Dr.U utilized his Dr.UGraft ™ technology to harvest leg and nape hair as viable grafts for the reco
  2. Hello, Oliver. If what you're referring to is the Dr.UPunch™ Curl, not quite - while they are both indeed members of the Dr.UGraft™ family of FUE tools, there are several key differences. The primary one will be the fact that the Curl is a manual, non-rotary punch, while the Dr.UGraft™ system as a whole is an all-inclusive suite with a rotary, mechanical punch at its helm. The Dr.UGraft™ system is a successor of the Dr.UPunch™ Curl and is perfectly capable of performing in all of the same situations that the Curl is known for. To learn more about the entire Dr.UGraft™ l

  4. On the market for the latest hair transplant technology? FUE hair surgeon in LA Dr. Umar has spent many years perfecting his FUE system Dr. UGraft ™. At the heart of his creation is the Dr.UPunch i ™ FUE punch, a landmark design that has greatly expanded the potential of FUE treatment. The FUE process is safe and relatively non-invasive. Some patients come to our office expressing concern about scarring in the donor area. While no surgical procedure is completely scar-less, the Dr.UGraft ™’s patented Dr.UPunch i ™’s FUE punch tip is engineered to minimize FUE scarring while simulta
  5. FUE hair transplant is one of the most versatile solutions for those suffering from hair loss, male pattern, hormonal, premature, or otherwise. As an expert in the practice of FUE in all types of patients, Los Angeles-based hair surgeon Dr. Sanusi Umar has spent some time developing his own proprietary system of FUE tools, all under the Dr.UGraft™ brand. Dr. U’s Dr.UGraft™ system not only makes body hair transplant procedures more effective than ever - its intelligently-flaring punch tip is especially conducive to FUE hair transplant procedures done on individuals with curly, Afr
  6. The patient below was scarred extensively from previous surgeries at other clinics. This left him without much hope for restoration, so he settled for a double-flap procedure to allow him to use a hairpiece. Then, he learned about Dr. Sanusi Umar’s hair transplant repair technique, published in journals such as the Facial Plastic Surgery Journal of North America. After an initial consultation, it was clear that the natural hair pattern of the patient would have to be reconstructed using hair from areas other than the head. Dr. U was able to perform this procedure by using his Dr.UGra
  7. This patient had a history of hair loss and poor results from previous hair restoration attempts. These procedures not only failed to reverse hair loss, but also left visible scars on his consequently depleted donor area. Ready to give up on any hope of restoration, he became aware of Dr. U’s success with repairs for head-donor depleted patients using non-head hair. After a consultation, he was ready to give a body hair to head transplant with Dr.UGraft™ a shot. Using the Intelligent Punch™ (Dr.UPunch i™), which features patented and unpatented graft grip, pull, score, and re
  8. Traction alopecia is a mechanical form of hair loss, often associated with harsh grooming practices such as tight ponytails and braids. It tends to predominantly affect women of African descent, due to the prevalence of such hairstyles for curly hair. The patient below noticed her edges were beginning to recede after years of wearing tight ponytails. She consulted Dr. Sanusi Umar in Los Angeles about her options. Dr. Umar (aka Dr. U), recommended a linear-scar free FUE hair transplant to reverse her receding edges. In order to safely extract the tightly curled, afro-texture
  9. Those looking to acquire or advance their FUE hair transplant skills may be interested to know that the 2018 Los Angeles Hair Transplant Workshop is open for registration. Over the course of two days, October 6- 7, attendees can attend lectures from hair restoration experts and then apply their knowledge in life-like hands-on training using fresh-frozen cadavers. Providers of all experience levels can train in Body Hair Transplantation and Afro-Textured Hair FUE. Beginners interested in introducing a new service to their practice are welcome to join.

  10. Those interested in the latest advancements in hair transplant may be excited to learn that Dr. Umar (aka Dr. U) has performed the world’s first ultrasonic FUE hair transplant on afro-textured hair. This history-making debut can be seen in the surgical demonstration below: Dr. Umar is keenly aware of the need to advance hair transplant tools for all patients, especially those considered to be challenging due to hair type/skin texture. Often, patients with tightly-curled, afro-textured hair experience unsatisfactory results from FUE hair transplants due to the inability of convention
  11. Hello Hair Restoration Network community, It is no secret that traditional FUE tools have had problems in the safe and reliable extraction body hair. Practitioners using these tools often report poor results. An important factor accounting for this is the trauma endured by grafts extracted using conventional FUE tools, which have less problems in head hair extraction. The difference that results in problematic extraction is the angulation of body hair below the skin surface. Since this is hidden in the skin, the operator would have to guess the angles unless he or she is equipped with a t
  12. Thank you Bill, This video is an overview introduction to what the technology is capable of. As you can see, even in the setting of a scarred donor, the punch was able to self-guide and separate the grafts with minimal control from the operator. In the subsequent weeks, we will take on each and every identified FUE issue and demonstrate in live videos how Dr.UGraft ameliorates them. The rotary motion of the Intelligent Punch (combined with patented and patent-pending graft pulling features) pushes away attachments, leaving the graft separated from surrounding tissue in such a way
  13. On the contrary, the Dr.UGraft system does not use suction. Rather, it delivers fluid in the opposite direction in order to nourish and sustain the grafts during extraction. The Intelligent Punch, used in the video above, pulls the grafts up to cut around it then release the graft. This is made possible due to several break-through, patented features -- and the reason the Dr.UGraft system is delivering unprecedented yields in FUE and BHT.
