Top Hair Restoration and Dermatology Doctor - Redondo Beach, CA

Excellent, artist and highly skilled top doctor in the hair restoration and dermatology fields. After having had some hairline restoration work done, as well as dermatology (botox, juvederm, etc), I have found his before and after care to be top notch!!! He and his staff are very caring, and you feel relaxed the minute you enter the clinic. I also like that products are not over sold or pushed on patients. The interest of patients wants and needs are addressed to a T. Overall excellence!

My Hair Transplant Cost Was Worth It, my Hair Restoratio Was a Success! - Los Angeles, CA

i reccommend dr. u because he was the most honest hair surgeon i found. he had alot of work to show, never seemed like he was trying to "sell" me, and made me feel like i had a choice in the way i wanted my hair to look. he allowed me to meet past patients (something not many will EVER do), and his price was worth it. this is your hair, its not something you should be cheap about!!

I Showed my Hair Transplant to Another HT Doctor and He Said It Was the Worst He Had Seen in Years - Redondo Beach, CA

As a doctor who advertises himself as the victim of a poor hair transplant in the past, I am disappointed to have received a poor hair transplant from him. In hindsight he never answered my questions via email regarding realistic expectations, and the work he performed has been unanimously reviewed by the other hair transplant physicians I have seen since then as poor at best. Dr. Umar has ruined my life.

5 out of 5 stars FUE Hair Transplant

Life Changing Solution

Two Words: Saved me I was victim to 4 failed hair transplants beginning at the age of 19. First one was strip, last were misleading and unethical FUE sessions (of which the last 2 were attempted repairs by that same clinic). I was left with a severely depleted head donor, no self esteem whatsoever, and with a complete loss of hope. My last procedure/attempted repair was in 2011. When not...

Avoid Dr. Umar I wish I would have

Honorable experience 1200grafts 10 months ago. I was so disappointment on the day of my surgery. Pros: Dr U meets with you directly, good location, clean Cons: Unprofessional, Had a colleague observe my surgery without my permission. They talked about me like I wasn't there. The person who put the grafts in was inexperienced I could her them coaching her on what to do. Afterward she put in...

african american fue hair transplant

I had scalp scarring alopecia from a childhood condition which caused balding in my frontal hair line. I had a previous transplant procedure from another Dr. who says he specializes in transplanting african american hair and the results were minimal. I had smp done after that transplant and wasn't satisified with the results. I went to Dr. Umar and had around 2400 grafts done in two different...

Saved Me. Redondo Beach, CA

Went to the "best" doctor a few years ago for FUE, which yielded terrible growth, 90% of grafts didn't grow. Thinking it was a fluke I went back to him again, and the same thing happened. I also had poor growth results from a transplant when I was 18. dr Umar took me in, did tests, biopsies, and even offered a mini session to see how it turned out. 5 years later, and several transplants later,...
