The new hair transplant method takes a leg hair follicles and grafted them in sparsely populated areas of the head, it's the first documented and successful cases. Traditionally, doctors take follicles in the nape of the neck or back of the head, considered "donor" safe area "because they are not affected by the hormones that cause hair loss, and implanted them in areas without hair.

New hair transplant and natural appearance
If you take the neck thick hair and places them in the front part of the head, where the hair is thinner by nature, can affect the natural appearance of the person, because of the nature of the transplanted hair thicker says Dr. Sanusi Umar, an associate instructor of dermatology at the medical school of the University of California, Los Angeles, and author of the new transplant.
Two patients dissatisfied with the result of traditional New hair transplant and natural appearance, were the first people undergoing the new technique of dr. Sanusi. They were ashamed because they noticed that the grafted hair was too hard and thick in contrast to her thin hair natural. To hide the problem one of them straightened her hair forward and the other kept it very short. New transplants of leg hair follicles, which are similar to the fine hair front, were carried out in the clinic of Dr. Umar Sanusi, in Redondo Beach, California.
Near 1000 leg follicles were grafted one by one in front of patients; about 80% of grafted hair grew in the patients head and looked soft and natural. Dr. Umar continues to make this type of New hair transplant and natural appearance , which apparently is the only satisfactory option for some people, even he has transplanted hair into a woman.
