BHT repair with 10, 309 grafts (2105 beard; 8204 body)-6months (Hair Transplant)

[image]
[image]


BEFORE
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:

The surgery

BHT SURGERY



The patient underwent BHT 6 months ago using the following donor sources:

Beard hair: 2105 ; Abdomen 2960; Arms 1444; Chest 799; Leg and thighs: 2177 and Pubic 824.

The goal was to obfuscate the hairline and temple scars while redefining the unnatural angulations brought about by the FM flaps as well as to impart coverage in the frontal scalp, midscalp, crown, head donor (back of head) and aspects of the sides (parietal scalp) worst affected by the punch excision scars.

Here are some photos illustrating the scope of the surgery:

In my opinion Dr Umar is in a class of his own when it comes to HT, especially BHT. His dedication, skill and hardwork must be admired.

sofarsogood, you look like a genius, Dr. Umar sure seems to be putting out fantastic results. I've been extremely nervous about pulling the trigger on any surgery, but this leaves me shaking my head, saying come on what are you waiting for. my big concern is scaring, because the only hair I could use is beard hair and a little hair on the nape of my neck, but I don't need the coverage that this guy needed. I would guess 3000 grafts would get me in decent condition. Not a full head of hair by any means, but a drastic inprovement.

Lol.
I'm far from any sort of genius, my friend.

Anyway...
Scarring in the donor sites under the chin?

My legs look 100% the same as before BHT w/ Dr U.
I honestly cant find any signs of BHT work and wear shorts here in Cali regularly.
But please note that my only BHT experience is with Dr. U.

In the future, I'll be trying some beard hair in my strip scars.

This might just be as close to a "magic bullet" for repairing strip scars one can hope for from surgery.

Best to you sting.
Good luck in your journey.

I have been posting for well over 14 years because I feel the need to help others avoid the mistakes I have made and want to help others make better decisions and avoid being deceived. I would be happy to speak to anyone at anytime in person or on the phone. There are some out there that wish I would go away, but I don't have any plans on going anywhere. I believe the small amount of effort I make can make a big difference in someone else's life and it's well worth my time.

Stay away from doctors who perform mega sessions, have posts deleted, attack posters, sue patients & forum owners, use power drills or robots. I recommend fue with hand punches in the .70-.85 range. I consulted with dozens of clinics over the years and there was a recurring theme regarding FUE among some employees of those other clinics. I was told Bisanga was the man my research told me the same and my experience validated my own research.

@ Dr Umar

patient testimonial

For some reason the patient is having trouble registering an account in the forum. I am trying to resolve this for him at the moment.

For the time being, I am copying below an email that he sent to Dr. Umar over the weekend.


“Dr. Umar, because I am not yet a member of hairsite.com, I give you permission to post the following information with my photos to provide helpful context.

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. "

Kudos to Umar for recommending a test, body hiar s unpredictable, you were literally rolling the dice doing that many grafts all in one shot. You should be very thankful that it turned out so well for you.

Dr. Umar really did a spectacular job for this guy. I can see why he has so many supporters in the forum. I think Umar is slowly building a name for himself as a repair specialist using body hair. This one is a perfect example.

Usually bht repair hair looks crappy, unnatural, combover-ish, this one actually looks quite natural, even the hairstyle is quite nice. Good work.

I, for one, cannot be happier for you. I think that the transformation is incredible, and that your situation was one of the more challenging repair cases I've ever seen, to say nothing of being one of the most successful. I thought it also good to hear that your appearance was not "career limiting", it showed alot of good energy and positive thinking on your part.

You deserve this success after all youve been through. Legal action against Fleming Meyers may not have been successful anyway and its likely it could of only cost you more money, which would have led to even further financial sacrifice.

Congrats on your new look, fantastic work Dr. Umar.
