Over the past few years, follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplantation has become increasingly popular among hair loss sufferers seeking surgical hair restoration. With this increase in demand has come a variety of innovations in tools and technique from manual and powered FUE punches to automated systems like NeoGraft and ARTAS. However, new and exciting tools that aim to make FUE faster and safer while delivering more consistent yield are always in development. One such tool is the UGraft Advanced FUE System, designed by recommended hair transplant surgeon Dr. Sanusi Umar of Redondo Beach, CA.
Unlike existing FUE tools, the UGraft system consists of a motorized punch with an integrated irrigation system that serves to gently dislodge grafts that may become impacted inside the punch during extraction. This system claims to eliminate the need for pulling the impacted graft out with tweezers, thus protecting the graft from potential damage.
Another unique feature of the UGraft is its excision punches that are angled away from the follicles. This angulation contributes to the patent-pending “gentle pulling action” that is said to minimize damage to the grafts as they are extracted.
Dr. Umar has been using the UGraft for years and believes this system to be the best FUE tool available. He is currently in the process of bringing his device into production and making it available to other FUE hair transplant practitioners worldwide.
