Recently, recommended hair transplant surgeon and follicular unit extraction (FUE) specialist Dr. Sanusi Umar shared a presentation about leg hair transplants (body hair transplant) at the 2011 American Society for Dermatological Surgery (ASDS) annual meeting.
As a hair restoration surgeon, Dr. Umar is well known for his ability to successfully extract and implant hair grafts from alternative (non-scalp) sources during extreme hair transplant repairs. Although he’s frequently utilized body hair grafts from the beard, chest, and armpit regions, the ASDS presentation focused on the use of leg hair grafts during hair transplant repairs.
To demonstrate the validity of these grafts, Dr. Umar presented a repair patient who underwent a 1,000 leg hair graft procedure. Utilizing hair solely from the patient’s legs, Dr. Umar repaired a harsh, unnatural hairline created during a previous hair transplant surgery.
Two years after the repair procedure, Dr. Umar showed the leg grafts recreated a soft, natural hairline and permanently transformed the patient’s appearance. According to Dr. Umar’s blog, the leg hair graft’s natural fine caliber and ability to create a “soft,” gradual appearance makes them an ideal choice for transplant repair procedures.
Congratulations Dr. Umar!
