Hair Transplant Revolution by Dr. Sanusi Umar

Hair Translantation Breakthrough—Introducing Body Hair Transplantation (BHT)

With his breakthrough procedure (Umar Procedure), Dr Umar is able to transplant hair from various parts of the body to the balding areas of the head. Transfer of hair from the body to the bald area of the scalp is called "Body Hair to Head Transplantation" or "Body Hair Transplantation (BHT)".

Meet G.D.
The first person in history to discard his hairpeice as a result of Body Hair Transplantation (BHT). G. D. had extensive baldness (Norwood 6). He had undergone several strip hair transplant procedures. The result has been dismal growth of unnatural plugs, severe indentations, and large strip scars that wrapped around the back and sides of his head. He had to grow the hair on the back and sides of his head long to conceal the scars. He had also run out of head hair to enable repair of this poor result. Before his surgery with Dr Umar, he had resigned himself to using a hair piece for the rest of his life.

His first surgery occurred in September 2005. In this instance 5,700 grafts were transplanted to create a free standing hair line, and to fill in the front of his scalp in a natural fashion. All the grafts were derived from his chest, abdomen and legs.

His second surgery occurred in November of 2005. This time the back of his head (crown) was filled in with 3,400 grafts while the large scar on his head were implanted with ~1,600 grafts. All the grafts were derived from his chest and legs only.
