Background: In hair transplantation, the survival rate of harvested grafts depends upon many factors like maintenance of hydration, cold temperature, reduced mechanical handling and asepsis. All these factors are favourably improved if time out of body is reduced significantly. We have tried a modification called direct hair transplantation in the existing follicular unit extraction technique, in which the follicular unit grafts are implanted as soon as they are harvested. In this article, we… Expand
Use of Implanters in Premade Recipient Sites for Hair Transplantation
TLDR
Placement of the grafts into premade slits using implanter will help in improved results because of minimal graft handling, more graft placement in less time, and thereby reducing body out of time. Expand
Evolution of hair transplantation
TLDR
Hair transplantation is still the best solution for hair loss and in conjunction with the surgery, the addition of non-surgical interventions may give a better result to the patient. Expand

The aim of this article is to explain FUE technique, risk and complications, holding solutions and other associated factors in detail. Expand
Instant Follicular Hair Unit Transplantation (IFHUT) in androgenetic alopecia – The evolving scenario
TLDR
Although this technique presents a steeper learning curve for the surgeon, need for clear protocols and proper execution, the efficacy and superiority of results presented by the IFHUT method show the potential of this technique to reshape the future of the hair transplant industry. Expand
Hair transplantation by follicular unit extraction for male androgenetic alopecia: A retrospective observational study from two centers.

Transplantation of melanocyte stem cells in vitiliginous skin
TLDR
Since spontaneous repigmentation of vitiliginous skins begin mostly in follicular areas, reactivation of melanocyte precursors along the outer root sheath of hair follicle is expected to have better on this pigmentation. Expand
Safety concerns when using novel medications to treat alopecia
TLDR
This review summarizes the safety concerns when using novel therapeutic modalities such as JAK inhibitors, hair transplantation, mesotherapy, oral minoxidil, platelet-rich plasma, microneedling, and 5α-reductase inhibitors for treating hair loss. Expand
