Hello Hair Loss Help Community,

If you keep track of FUE hair transplant technology, you may find the latest advancement from Dr. U's office in Los Angeles to be particularly interesting: Dr. Umar (aka Dr. U) has performed the world's first ultrasonic FUE hair transplant. Click the link below to see the surgical demonstration:

The patient presents the unique challenge of afro-textured hair, which many basic cylindrical punches fail to extract safely. The reason for this failure is often two-fold due to: the inability of conventional rotary punches to navigate the severe angles of the curled follicles, and the difficulty in overcoming a tough dermis and strong attachment of the follicle to the deep skin.

In response to this issue, Dr. U previously pioneered the manual Dr.UPunch Curltm. Its sharp, two-pronged, curved punch tip operated via manual plunging motion was specifically designed with afro-textured hair in mind. A recent comparative study documenting 18 patient cases published in [I. Dr. Umar knew that there was room for improvement, however, and thus continued to consider how to improve the procedure.

This improvement, it turns out, is the addition of ultrasound. In the video above, see how Dr. U harnesses the energy of ultrasonic waves to vibrate the Dr.UPunch Curltm at a frequency suited to the particular patient's tissue profile. This, in turn, enables the easier extraction of tightly curled hair follicles which are more strongly attached to the surrounding tissue.

Read a more in-depth overview of this procedure here.
