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 conventional rotary punches to navigate the severe angles of the curled follicles and overcome tough dermis and strong attachment of the follicle to the deep skin. He previously pioneered the manual Dr.UPunch Curl™ to overcome obstacles in afro-textured hair with its sharp, two-pronged, curved punch tip operated via manual plunging motion. A comparative study documenting 18 patient cases published in the PRS Global Open found this non-rotary device to be 100% successful where others extraction tools had failed. However, Dr. Umar knew that there is always room for improvement.
This improvement is the addition of ultrasound. Dr. U harnesses the energy of ultrasonic waves to vibrate the Dr.UPunch Curl™ at a frequency suited to the particular patient's tissue profile. This enables the easier extraction of hair follicles which are tightly curled under the skin and which have stronger attachments to the surrounding tissue.

After experiencing a failed traditional FUE procedure that used a basic rotary punch and further bad results from a scalp micropigmentation (SMP), this African American man sought the help of Dr Umar, a world renowned hair transplant surgeon located in Los Angeles, CA. Dr U has invented a FUE tool called the DrUPunch Curl, specifically designed for performing FUE hair transplants for black men and women, regardless of hair curliness or skin texture.
In a recent Plastic and Reconstructive Global Open Journal publication, Dr Umar showed that where other punches have failed, the DrUPunch Curl is successful in extracting any and all Afro-textured hair. In this patient, Dr. U transplanted a total of 2,320 grafts in a two-stage procedure.
