Mr. Singh, a Senior professional from the hospitality industry was referred to us by his friend who is the Ex-Davis Cup Captain of India, indeed he was also one of our patients who became a dear friend after his great results and keeps sending his friends to us. The index patient was 43 years old and had a big forehead along with loss of temples which were giving him a very bald look. He had left with a little bit of hair on the mid-scalp, otherwise he had lost complete hair on the front and crown. We planned his frontal area and temple and tried to cover as much as possible over two days. We did 7100 grafts (5000: scalp; 2100: beard). His planted hair started showing up after 3 months as usual for all of our patients (because of our Direct Hair Transplantation concept, wherein we extract and simultaneously plant the grafts which leads to less post transplant telogen effluvium and we get a fair amount of direct growth of the planted hair.) By one year the temple points were looking extremely natural and the hairline was impeccable in naturalness. He started sending his friends from all across. And we earned a friend in him forever.

Total Grafts: 7100
This patient underwent multiple strip harvesting procedures and a body hair transplant at another clinic. However, the results of all these surgeries failed. The patient’s level of hair loss remained at Norwood 6 since most of the inserted follicles did not survive. Also, he had a number of highly visible linear scars.
Due to the depletion of head donor grafts, he was not able to have his situation repaired through traditional forms of hair transplantation.
Dr. Umar was able to harvest a donor supply of 7000 grafts to produce the coverage seen in the patient’s final results. This consisted of:
(1) 1800 grafts from the head
(2) 4500 grafts from the beard
(3) 700 grafts from the chest
The removal of these grafts was achieved through an Advanced Follicular Unit Extraction technology which Dr. Umar developed called uGraft. UGraft has been designed to include special features which overcome the challenges associated with harvesting donor hairs from the body:
(1) A component which gently pulls the hair follicles to help remove them from surrounding tissue attachments
(2) Customizable punch units which create specially configured wound shapes which minimize extraneous tissue around the lip. This enables much higher standards in wound healing by reducing the appearance of raised scars.
Dr. Umar inserted the patient’s grafts according to specific slit and placement parameters to create a natural looking hair growth pattern and the best cosmetic results possible for this individual. These insertions were able to survive and produce hair which sufficiently covered the linear scars, the crown and top. Dr. Umar also created an appropriate temple and hairline for the patient’s face.
The large scale transplantation of body hair generally benefits two types of patients in particular:
(1) the severely bald (Norwoods 6-7)
(2) extreme hair repair cases.
