For years, traditional methods of hair transplants such as strip surgery have carried a heavy risk of scarring. These scars often restrict the type of hairstyle a patient can wear, and in some cases, can become extremely disfiguring. Fortunately, Dr. Sanusi Umar’s groundbreaking technological advancements in the field of hair restoration offer good news for patients concerned about scarring, or who have developed scars from treatment at other clinics. The Dr UGraft allows patients to undergo hair transplant scar revision.
Hair Transplant Scar Revision – Before Photos:
The patient profiled here had strip surgery at another clinic prior to coming to see Dr. Umar. After the surgery, the patient ended up with two problematic scars. He realized that he needed to go to another doctor to treat the scarring from the previous surgery at another clinic. Making the situation even more problematic, the patient had the scars tattooed prior to seeing Dr. Umar.
The patient had always liked to wear a short, buzzed-look hair style. Unfortunately, the heavy scarring showed whenever the patient cut his hair short. The tattooing did little to correct the issue either.
The Solution – Hair Transplant Scar Revision Before and After Photos:
Dr. Umar recommended treatment using 1200 grafts with the follicular unit extraction (FUE) Dr.UGraft procedure using the UPunch Rotor. He opted to use body hair transplantation (BHT) from the patient’s beard for the best results. The surgery resulted in a seamless, natural-looking head of hair. The patient could even wear a buzz cut hairstyle again!
Patient Transplant Scar Treatment Results Before & After Photos:
Following the procedure, and with the patient’s tattoos concealed, his scars are camouflaged seamlessly. Following the surgery, the back of the patient’s head looked stellar! Dr. Umar successfully gave his patient the look that he desired and which other doctors could not match.

Hair Transplant Scar Revisions – Frequently Asked Questions:
How does FUE with the Dr.UGraft differ from other hair transplants, like the strip surgery?
Strip surgeries involve a highly invasive procedure that removes a strip of hair from the back of the head.They have become known for their complications—including scars—as well as unnatural looking results.
By contrast, the FUE Dr.UGraft procedure transplants individual follicles from the head, beard or elsewhere on the body to head, restoring hair. Unlike the strip surgery, the Dr.UGraft carries little chance of visible scarring or other complications.
I too have undergone strip surgery, and have visible scars. Other doctors have told me that I exhausted my donor area. Can Dr. Umar help me?
Yes! Unlike strip surgeries or basic FUE methods which rely solely on head hair, the advanced FUE offered by the Dr.UGraft procedure can utilize hair from anywhere on the body. This greatly expands the donor pool, allowing Dr. Umar far more options to restore hair and carry our repair work.
