  2. VIDEO RESULT AT 14 MONTHS AFTER SURGERY To view the VIDEO result of his latest repair work, click this link: THE BEFORE PICTURE -------------------- 14 months ago he underwent ~5000 grafts beard:Chest hair (4:1) to further consolidate his repair work. The work done is best surmised by the patient in his own words: “I'm finishing up my week of surgery with Dr. Umar this week. Those who have followed my case know that I'm a victim of the old-punch grafts. In the early 90's (starting when I was only 19yrs old) I had a doctor from New England butcher my scalp and left me with scars, an unsightly appearance, and hardly any growth. I had to wear a hairpiece to go out in public. I'm 36 now, and still wear the hairpiece. My first couple of procedures with Dr. Umar were to create temple points and a temple region, of which I had none. Also, Dr. Umar placed leg hair (some chest hair too) into my ravaged rear scalp (where the old punch grafts were taken). The results were excellent. My temple region and points grew in to my utmost satisfaction and my rear scalp was improved--more of a filler to help camoflauge the large gaps. For this weeks procedure, Dr. Umar took things further. For my rear scalp area he placed beard hair throughout, so that the results will not act merely as a filler, but provide good density, both actual and cosmetic. Also, Dr. Umar created a hairline that will synch perfectly with his previously created temple region. This hairline was designed with my wish to continue to wear the hairpiece behind it. With the temple points, this hairline will blend and match my temple region perfectly. The decision to design a hairline with the intent of maintaining a hairpiece behind it is not to be taken lightly. Dr. Umar agreed to this strategy as he and I both know that I have no desire to get rid of the piece--unless a scientific breakthrough occurs (hair cloning) or I continue further with body/beard hair to make my bald zone diminish in size. The natural hairline in front of the piece will give me much more confidence, as I will no longer have to worry about how the "fake hairpiece hairline" looks--the front of any hairpiece is the biggest give-away to the obsever. Now I won't have to worry about that anymore. Also, the maintence needed to wear a hairpiece behind my new "real" hairline will make my life much easier--though I'm sure it will take some time to get it right through some trial and error (blending, direction, styling, etc.)."

  4. This patient received 1800 grafts by strip from another clinic. He wanted his hairline refined to a more natural state and the density in his crown, midscalp and frontal scalp restored to a more natural appearance. Because his head donor is naturally thin, he wanted to minimize traditional head donor harvesting. Donor: Traditional Head: 1000 Nape/neck: 400 Beard: 1100 He is happy with his result and is since booked to finish off his crown and dispatch with his strip scar The following sequenced photos are self explanatory; S.

  7. He is known in the hairloss blog community as "schmoe". Before seeing me, he had a history of prior FUE and BHT at another facility involving mainly the hairline, frontal scalp and crown. He came to me requesting improvement of his hairline from his prior surgery. He wanted the hairline softened and the shape and direction streamlined to taste. The aim is for a subtle but evident change in the hairline. He also wanted density added to the mid scalp. 7 months prior he underwent a 3000 SFET procedure to achieve the above stated objectives. The breakdown of the donor sources were as follows: Head donor: 1293 Nape: 597 Lower abdomen and upper pubic areas: 1115 The foregoing are before and after photos in a self explanatory sequence: . . . .

  8. . The video is self explanatory. Click the following link to view it: For a better quality viewing, click the "watch in high quality " option located to the bottom and left of the video. . The surgery: He received for his repair ~2000 beard hair and ~8,000 from other parts of the body. Before the surgery, here is his presenting history: The patient had a past history of multiple past hair restoration procedures using antiquated methods dating back to over 2 decades ago. Past surgeries included; Scalp reduction, F-M Flaps, Old styled large punch transplants, Strip surgeries.He began his repair journey with another esteemed hair restoration surgeon and was referred to me for BHT after running out of head donor hair and options. Before the he had a strip excision of his hairline. The picture before BHT was: 1. An exposed strip scar in front of the hairline that ran from one temporal recess to the other 2. Exposed linear F-M scars that extend from behind the hairline to both sides of the head in the parietal areas. 3. Strip scars in the back of the head. 4. A scalp reduction scar that ran from the crown to the mid scalp 5. Multiple 4mm punch excision scars distributed along the back sides and top of the head 6. Diffused hair loss exposing the aforementioned scars. 7. Unaturally angle hairline and frontal hair courtesy of FM flaps The following photos illustrate these finding rather well: . PATIENT STATEMENT "I am a 54-year old physician who, similar to many young individuals, began to experience crown and frontal hair loss in my 20's (1981). At that time, I underwent the generic 2 scalp reductions and HT to the frontal area from the well-known Los Angeles "mill", without regard to future balding. As with most poorly planned hair transplants, my baldness progressed shortly thereafter and I had frontal grafts that were too "pluggy", an unnatural frontal hairline, hair placed in the wrong direction, scarring in the recipient area, donor scarring, and a depleted donor supply. Because my hair was long and curly, I was able to somewhat minimize the oddness of these results. However with further balding, things looked weird. As a result, during some free time, I underwent a flap procedure from a well-established Los Angeles surgeon in 1995. This procedure should never have been done given my low donor hair supply and compromised donor circulation, and I had necrosis (death of the tissue) at the distal ends of both flaps. I did not pursue legal action (which I cold have) but focused my efforts on taking time away from work and undergoing significant repair (scalp expansion) with a highly reputable and kind surgeon in the Bay Area. Fast forward to this year. Because of free time between career changes and financial security, I was intrigued by the possibility of body hair transplants, although initially a little hesitant and unsure of what the probability of “technical success” would be for me. I spoke with several patients who had successful outcomes with Dr. Umar and decided to “go for it” with the proviso that I was truly seeking improvement and not perfection (and with the view that things could not be made worse). My results, as you can see, could not have been more spectacular. I had no shedding, almost immediate 100% growth in the frontal and mid-scalp areas, and current growth now occurring in the crown. Although my prior odd appearance was not career-limiting, I feel like a new person. I can not say how this procedure would work on others, as it is in its infancy and data on many individuals have not yet been published. But, as a patient and a physician, I felt like I did my due diligence by approaching a terrific and committed physician (Dr. Umar). Because of time constraints, I also chose not to undergo a “test area” (which Dr. Umar recommended) but to have it all done at the same time. For people with need of extensive work from bad hair procedures and no scalp donor supply(and the time and financial resources to do so), body hair transplant offers great hope in the hands of skilled, ethical, and committed physicians like Dr. Umar. I am also hopeful that physicians who have not had success with this procedure (and readily announce their dissatisfaction with BHT on the web) can collaborate to quantify their experiences and better understand why results may vary with different physicians.
