Patents For Dr. Umar’s Innovations

The Dr.UGraft™ System
The Dr.UGraft System™ was designed over the course of several years, taking into account the common reasons of poor growth after hair transplant, as well as groups, such as the severely bald, who were often turned from hair transplant clinics as "hopeless" cases.

The Dr.UGraft Revolution Console, which includes a fluid integration system compatible with the Dr.UGraft Nurture Handpiece, received patent US20140031839 A1 in 2014.


The Flared Punch (Dr.UPunch i™)
The flared tip of The Intelligent Punch™ (Dr.UPunch i) eliminates the guesswork of punch alignment, angle of growth, and depth control.

The flared punch of the Dr.UGraft System received patent US8876847 B2 in 2014. The hybrid cutting access of the unique punch pushes away attachments from the hair graft, enabling efficient extraction.

The flaring also enables a graft grip-pull-score-release mechanism, which further reduces guesswork in FUE hair surgery.

The Dr.UPunch Curl™
The Dr.UPunch Curl™ is designed to navigate the "angle of C" type growth of afro-textured hair. This then enables the extraction of quality grafts for successful African American FUE hair transplant results.

The Dr.UPunch Curl is a manual FUE instrument designed to safely extract tightly curled follicles. This punch received patent EP2939617 B1 in 2016.

The sharp, two-pronged manual punch is specialized for use in cases in which hair grows curled underneath the skin – such as afro-textured hair – and is strongly attached to the surrounding tissue.

The Dr.UPunch Stealth™
The Dr.UGraft Stealth is a punch, as the name implies, designed for stealth procedures. This includes non-shaven FUE procedures.

The Dr.UPunch Stealth™ is the first non-rotary punch for non-shaven FUE procedures. It received patent EP2838448B1 in 2016. Similar to the Dr.UPunch Curl™ above, this punch is also operated via a manual plunging motion. 

This punch, however, has a tip that is less hook-shaped, making it suitable for use on non-curled hair as well.
