Dr. Sanusi Umar performs state of the art follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplant surgery and is arguably the worldís foremost expert in BHT (body hair transplantation)

Why Dr. Umar is recommended.

Dr. Sanusi Umar has a background in dermatology and has been performing world renowned follicular unit extraction (FUE) and BHT (body hair transplant - transferring body hair follicles to balding areas of the scalp) procedures with excellent results since 2005. 

Dr. Umar is widely published in the field of hair restoration, appearing in well respected journals such as the Journal of Dermatology and General Medicine.  He is also the founder of Hair Peace Foundation (HPF) which is dedicated to helping patients with traumatic causes of hair loss.

View highlights from our visit to Dr. Sanusi Umar’s Hair Transplant Clinic in Redondo Beach, California.

Dr. Umar is arguably the world’s leading expert on BHT and specializes in hair transplant repair cases.  Dr. Umar is very “hands-on” and extracts all FUE and BHT grafts himself.  He often assists his certified medical assistant with over 7 years experience with placing grafts into tiny recipient incisions he made himself.


Dr. Umar developed a passion for alternative hair transplant procedures due to a botched 400 graft strip surgery he endured several years ago.  His personal dedication has helped motivate him to excel while enduring unfair criticism from some of his BHT competitors.

Dr. Umar recognizes that today’s state of the art follicular unit hair transplant (FUT) procedures are producing world renowned results.  However, Dr. Umar believes that his minimally invasive FUE technique provides some distinct advantages including a significant reduction in potential scarring and rapid healing times. 

Dr. Umar makes optimal use of scalp donor hair via FUE (follicular unit extraction) before even considering alternative sources.  When appropriate, Dr. Umar takes a comprehensive approach by creating a unique blend of scalp, beard, nape (the area where hair starts above the neck) and body hair used as “filler”.  He refers to his unique process as the “Umar Procedure” for single follicle extraction and transfer (SFET).

Recognizing that not everyone is suited for BHT, Dr. Umar uses very strict criteria in determining who is an appropriate candidate.  In Dr. Umar’s experience, more body hair is required to provide the same amount of coverage as normal scalp hair, due to the long resting phase of body hair. 

Using innovative FUE tools he designed himself, Dr. Umar first scores the skin using a 0.9 mm or less punch and then uses a needle to separate the root of the follicle from the surrounding tissue.  Dr. Umar believes this process reduces scarring and minimizes the risk of transection that might result if he attempted extend the punch down to the base of the follicle for extraction.

Dr. Umar is an active member of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery and has given several presentations on his innovative hair transplant technique at annual scientific meetings worldwide.  Dr. Umar is certified by the American Board of Dermatology and the American Board of Internal Medicine.  He completed his fellowship training in cosmetic surgery under the direction of the American Academy of Cosmetic surgery.

FUE hair restoration and Body hair transplant for severe baldness - Dr Umar

In this hair transplant video, Dr Umar restores a slick bald norwood class 7 person to a natural thinning state with no linear scarring also known as strip scar. He does this with 8000 head and beard hair combined in one hair transplant surgery session. The patient is thrilled not to have to deal with a slick bald severe Norwood 7 state and is enjoying the life changing transformation brought about by Dr. Umar using the Umar Procedure. This procedure was performed via advanced Follicular Unit Extraction - FUE and body hair transplants - BHT

FUE Hair Transplant Repair of a Juri Hair Flap Hairline by Dr.Umar

Flap surgeries for the purpose of hair restoration and hair replacement have largely fallen out of favor with the advent of follicular unit hair transplantation, today's modern surgical hair restoration procedures.

Technical terms include Temperoparietal-occipital (aka Juri flaps or later modifications -Fleming Mayer) and temperoparietal flaps ( Elliot flaps ). Problems associated with these surgeries are mostly found in the esthetics of the hairline. Commonly, the hairline is too straight, defined necessarily by a scar, a backwardly directed hair angle and abnormally blunted temporal recesses.

In this hair transplant video, Dr Umar uses his follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique (Single Follicle Extraction and Transfer - SFET) to solve the aforementioned problems in a patient that had undergone Juri flap procedure several years prior.

UGraft Follicular Unit Extraction Hair Transplant by Dr. Umar - 1500 Grafts

In this video, this hair transplant patient wanted help for his receding hairline. The advancement of his hair loss also caused the top part of his head to thin.

Dr. Umar restored hair in these regions by performing Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and his own proprietary tool called uGraft. 1500 grafts were derived from the head and nape.

In FUE, doctors will extract natural groupings of 1-4 hair follicles (called follicular units) directly from the scalp or other area of the body.

In conventional strip surgery, doctors will excise a horizontal strip of hair bearing skin from the back (or sides) of the head. This is then divided into individual grafts. However, individuals are left with a linear scar.

The patient in this video discusses an interaction with an acquaintance who underwent strip surgery for the restoration of his hair. "I told him that I had a surgery. He couldn't believe it at first. And then he said, well, where is your scar? And I said look at it. And he looked for five minutes. He could not believe he couldn't find one spot on my head where it looked like there was a cut, or a scar or anything that looked damaged."

Another advantage to using Follicular Unit Extraction is it's versatility. Doctors can be selective about the type of hair they want to use to create the final result. Since the hairline is what people notice the most, it is important to create a natural quality.

This is achieved by using finer hairs from the back of the neck which are used to create a soft feathered look at the outer edge of the hairline. With strip surgery, this cannot be done.

The patient is very pleased with his new hairline. In his younger years, his hairline ran straight across his forehead, making it look bigger than what he would have liked. The point helps to balance out the height of his forehead.

Body Hair Transplant, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) by Dr. Umar

This hair transplant patient underwent a prior FUT/strip harvesting surgery that yielded subpar results. He was still bald, with only sparse, uneven coverage, obvious linear scarring, and a pluggy hairline. He wanted another hair restoration surgery to conceal the damage and create global density, but his extreme case was limitingóhe would require the employ of body hair transplant (BHT) for a successful outcome.

Dr. Sanusi Umar of DermHair Clinic is a world-leading BHT surgeon. Over the course of two sessions, he was able to take a total of 14,000 grafts from the patient's beard, chest and nape of the neck using his uGraft device. The first session harvested 9,000 grafts and the second harvested 5,000. This megasession made the patient's goals a reality.

The results shown are from 11 months after the second session, and the transformation is apparent. "I used a hairpiece for fourteen years," the patient said, "but now my life is completely, completely changed. I can swim, I can go in the wind. I feel free."

12,000 uGrafts Reverses Severe Baldness in Norwood 7 Patient

Those with severe baldness are often given two standard recommendations: (1) shaving their entire head (2) wearing a hair piece This patient, however, did not want either option. Instead, he wanted to have real hair growth on his head. Dr. Umar was able to harvest grafts from the patient's beard areas and combined this with head hair. The patient was able to achieve significant coverage during his first procedure which used 8,000 uGrafts. He returned for a second session a year later for greater density. 4,000 additional grafts were applied. Here is a video which features his personal feedback along with reactions that he received from other people.

Age Reversing Hairline Restoration With 3,000 uGrafts Performed By Dr. Umar

This hair transplant patient grew increasingly unhappy with his appearance due to the way his hairline and temples had receded. He started losing hair in his late twenties and finally decided to do something about the issue in his late forties. Dr. Umar extracted 3,000 uGrafts from the head and nape to create a natural looking hairline and temple points that would be most attractive in appearance for this patient's face. The patient's feedback was that this was the best investment he has ever made in himself.

Eyebrow Transplant With 300 uGrafts of Fine Leg Hairs

Eyebrow restoration is a procedure that is often chosen by male patients in addition to women. The patient in the photos and video below had very sparse eyebrows. They almost looked non existent, causing him to feel self conscious about his appearance. This was exacerbated by a comment that a family member made at a gathering.

Dr. Umar used 300 grafts of hair from the patient's leg to create the density that he wanted. Like nape hair, leg hair is also a close match for eyebrow hair.

Celebrity Hair Transplant With FUE By Dr. Umar

Bernardo de Paula is the actor who plays Beto in the Showtime series, Shameless. He was concerned about his hair loss, particularly in the hairline area and crown. Aside from the fact that appearances are highly linked to career opportunities and success in the entertainment industry, Bernardo felt that his progressive baldness was affecting his confidence as well.

Because hair transplantation has come a long way in the development of tools and techniques that enable doctors to produce very realistic results, more celebrities are turning to surgery to address issues with male pattern hair loss. And indeed, we are also seeing an emerging trend of high profile individuals speaking quite openly about their procedures. This not only includes Mr. de Paulo whose video is included here, but also other celebrities like Wayne Rooney, James Nesbitt (actor) and Marc Jacobs.

Calum Best, an actor, model and reality show star, underwent FUE. And he also feels there is no reason to be so secretive about hair surgery, as most onlookers respond quite positively to quality results.

Crown and Hairline Restoration With Follicular Unit Extraction

Bernardo de Paulo was experiencing hairline recession and emptiness in the crown. Dr. Umar performed an FUE hair transplant to harvest head donor grafts and insert them into these areas. Finer nape hair was used to create a softer and more natural looking hairline edge.

Dr. Uís Patient Returns for 2000 Additional BHT Grafts

In this video, Dr. U discusses the different areas of the patient’s procedure that were targeted. This includes his hairline and temples which were designed and created through a very and meticulous approach to ensure a very gradual and seamless transition to the rest of the hair.


Overall, the patient’s final outcome were contingent on two main factors:

(1) coverage
(2) detailed placement of the graft insertions

The extent of coverage was of course dependent on the vast graft quantity which was extracted. Given the patient’s depleted donor supply, this quantity was made possible through the use of Dr. U’s UGraft technology. This instrument is designed for the safe harvesting of follicles from the beard area as well as optimized wound healing results. 

Beyond extractions, the natural looking quality of the patient’s outcome was due to proper planning and Dr. U’s ability to recreate realistic growth patterns unique to the patient through specific slit creation parameters.

Dr. Uís Patient Repairs Past Strip Surgery Errors with 4213 BHT Grafts

This gentleman initially tried to conquer his male pattern baldness through a strip procedure performed at another clinic. However, his results were very disappointing. The operation exhausted his head donor supply. Yet, many of the inserted grafts did not grow. Thus, his crown continued to be bald. Some growth did occur on top of his head. But this created an unusual wall of hair in front of the crown. Furthermore, the strip scar was an additional source of worry as the patient did not want other people to notice it. 


In order to conceal the scar and cover the areas of missing hair, more donor grafts were needed beyond the quantity that remained on his head. Therefore, the patient felt that a body hair to head transplant was a very logical choice for achieving his objectives.

4213 Grafts of Head and Beard Hair

Since Dr. U had developed technology specifically for body hair extractions (i.e. UGraft ™ Revolution) and possesses an extensive track record of tangible patient success stories, the patient decided to chose our clinic for his procedure. 

Dr. U removed the following types of follicles to create an overall donor supply of 4213 grafts.

(1) 1472 grafts of beard hair
(2) 2741 grafts of head hair

Hair was carefully inserted into the crown, temples, hairline and strip scar to produce the results shown in these before and after images.

3500 grafts head and beard FUE Hair Transplant - Dr U

This patient had previously underwent surgery at a different facility before seeing Dr. U. His hair was still thin and he was left with a surgery scar on the back of his head. Dr. U performed FUE Hair Transplant by UGraft to address that patients concerns:

GRAFT BREAKDOWN
1226 grafts of head and nape hair
2293 grafts of beard hair

After only 12 months, the patient was fully healed and extremely pleased with his results. The hairline was reconstructed to create a more natural and fuller appearance. Dr. Umar added density overall to the patient’s head hair and a more natural and seamless hairline transition that improved the patient’s overall hair aesthetic. The patient described his experience as “under stated and over delivered.”

8 years after 3200 UGraft FUE Hair Transplantation by Dr U: Hair loss progression

The video above illustrates the subject of hair loss progression after hair transplants poignantly. Since hair loss is progressive, often time additional surgery is required to catch up with the effects of time at a later date. Importantly, it highlights what credible hair transplant clinics and doctors should discuss with all hair transplant patients at the time of first consultation. The patient should be given the full picture so they are able to make a rational decision with their long term interests and goals in mind. The younger the patient is at the time of surgery, the more time should be spent on this aspect of the consultation due to their unpredictable hair loss progression course. Read more about Dr U’s approach to hair transplantation in younger patients here.


After reconciling with the aforementioned variables discussed with Dr U for younger individuals, the patient in the video received 3200 grafts 8 years ago at the age of 26 from the nape area to restore receded temples and reconstruct his hairline.

After 8 years, the patient told Dr U he’s still thrilled at the impact the surgery has had in the 8 years since his surgery, according to the patients’ own words in the video. He inquired about doing a touch up surgery within a year or 2 to catch up with his hair loss progression. The following photos illustrate the patient’s visits with Dr. U, including his incredible results after the initial surgery and how he looks and feels about it all today.

Dr. Umar helps patient who visits novice clinic that over harvested

Without the right guidance, many hair transplant patients can fail to realize that a clinic may be ill-equipped to give the best type of treatment until it’s too late. Many times, hair transplant clinics often do not have the updated technology or foresight to map out the patient’s treatment.


The video above shows the results of how unequipped clinics have left a patient with visible scarring and continued baldness, as well as how Dr. Sanusi Umar was able to help him correct the damages using Advanced FUE by the UGraft method.

The unfortunate mistakes made by the clinic could have been avoided using a more advanced FUE method. With the use of body hair as a donor source, Dr U has shown success in repairing these hair transplant mistakes.
• Poor planning, which lead to a poor yield
• Overharvesting from only the patient’s head hair source
• The results of overharvesting left the patient with surgery scars and unnatural looking hair

Dr. Umar’s Advanced FUE using the UGraft system has shown promise in avoiding overharvesting non permanent hair which would lead to poor yield by using the “FUE Shave Test - FST” (which he first described in a recent publication in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal). Prior to surgery, the FUE Shave Test is used to fully determine the type of head hair donors that can successfully used. FST is a more dynamic way to determine the so called "safe donor area - SDA". It recognizes the fact that the true SDA varies from one balding patient to the other. 

Over a ten-year span, Dr. Umar has consistently been improving the techniques and procedures using the UGraft FUE system to ensure that overharvesting is no longer a trend.

After only five months the patient saw fuller coverage with Dr. Umar’s UGraft FUE system, as illustrated in the following photographs.
