LOS ANGELES, March 8 /PRNewswire/ -- FineTouch Dermatology, Inc. announces the Body Hair Transplantation (BHT) hair restoration method. This new method provides patients with the opportunity to fix bad hair transplants damaged by traditional hair restoration techniques.
This new and exciting option is now offered by Dr. Sanusi Umar, a Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon and board certified dermatologist who is internationally known for his incredible hair transplant surgery repairs. For the past five years, Dr. Umar has used Body Hair Transplant to repair many poor hair transplant cases, previously believed hopeless.
Prior to BHT, an advanced hair restoration method, poor hair restoration procedures led to disfigurement and scarring. In many cases, this caused mental anguish, social embarrassment and even pain. BHT involves the hair transplantation of scalp and non-scalp body and beard hair to balding areas of the head. Even severely bald individuals with prior poor hair surgery outcomes and a depletion of traditional scalp donor hair can achieve a cosmetically-acceptable restoration.
Conventional hair transplant methods involve the removal of flesh from the back and sides of the head resulting in linear scars that wrap around the back of the head from ear to ear; BHT is linear scar free and involves Single Follicle Extraction and Transfer (SFET), or the "Umar Procedure" – a more advanced version of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
With SFET-FUE, hairs are transplanted in a natural manner, one at a time. This hair restoration procedure is minimally invasive using a scalpel-free, micro-surgical technique that allows hair to be removed from the head, face and other parts of the body with no cosmetically-significant scarring.
This hair restoration procedure is permanent and results are realized within approximately 12-18 months; follow-ups are minimal and patients are typically released after one to two years.
One patient Dr. Umar helped had lost his donor hair supply after multiple antiquated scalp hair restoration surgeries. He was not only left bald, but also with several disfiguring scars. Prior surgeries included multiple scalp reductions and strip and punch hair transplants, with the creation of unnatural plugs in the frontal scalp and hairline. As a result, the patient had ridging and pitting and his temples and half of his head were devoid of hair.
Dr. Umar carried out the hair restoration repair at his Los Angeles office using approximately 15,000 chest, stomach and shoulder hair grafts; 6,000 beard hair grafts; and about 1,000 head hair grafts. The results of this hair restoration repair can be viewed by clicking here (YouTube).
A different patient, who underwent the Dr Umar's hair transplantation repair procedure, explains that, "Although my prior odd appearance was not career-limiting, I now feel like a new person. I cannot say how this procedure would work on others, but as a patient and a physician, I felt like I did my due diligence by approaching a terrific and committed physician – Dr. Umar."

Dr. Umar adds that not everyone is an ideal candidate for this type of hair restoration procedure using body hair. "Some people just do not have the appropriate amount of body hair or may have unsuitable body hair characteristics," says Dr. Umar.

*(Caption: G. D (2009) after BHT repair by Dr Umar: "My hope was to provide sufficient coverage and repair to live my life normally and with a lot of pride and self esteem. I have achieved those goals." The patient is shown 4 years after he saw Dr. Umar to repair antiquated hair transplants that had left him still bald, scarred and disfigured. He is shown after undergoing Dr Umar's Single Follicle Extraction and Transfer (SFET) which is linear scar free, enabling the effective transplantation of scalp, body and beard hair to the head in some patients.)
