background Follicular transplantation is a method of hair restoration surgery that uses hair in its naturally occurring groups called follicular units. By using the follicular unit exclusively in the transplant, the surgeon can move extensive quantities of implants in a single session to complete the hair restoration in as few sessions as possible. objective To briefly review the salient features of follicular transplantation, to discuss how the patient should be evaluated for the follicular… Expand
Chapter 34 – Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation
TLDR
Follicular Unit Transplantation requires an astute aesthetic sense for optimal hairline design, correct angling and distribution of grafts and the establishment of a master plan that anticipates further hair loss and is consistent with the long-term goals of the patient. Expand
Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation 2010
TLDR
Follicular unit transplantation requires an astute aesthetic sense for optimal hairline design, correct angling and distribution of grafts and the establishment of a master plan that anticipates further hair loss and is consistent with the long-term goals of the patient. Expand
The logic of follicular unit transplantation.
TLDR
The evolution and rational for follicular unit transplantation will be discussed, as well as the logic for the various techniques used in its implementation, which include single strip harvesting, stereo-microscopic dissection, automated graft insertion, and large transplant sessions. Expand
Follicular Unit Extraction: Minimally Invasive Surgery for Hair Transplantation
TLDR
FUE is a minimally invasive approach tohair transplantation that obviates the need for a linear donor incision and can serve as an important alternative to traditional hair transplantation in certain patients. Expand
In support of follicular unit transplantation.
This simple idea may not seem like a radical approach to hair transplantation, but when viewed in the context of how the surgery has been performed over the past forty years (when the very existenceExpand

Background: The advent of follicular unit transplantation (FUT) has given a natural appearance in the recipient area in the past two decades, but has left behind an unsightly scar in the donor area.Expand

TLDR
Although FUT remains the gold standard in hair restoration surgery, FUE has clinically demonstrated comparable patient outcomes and satisfaction and is a complementary and satisfactory donor harvesting method to FUT. Expand

TLDR
Meticulous surgical techniques and optimal utilization of a limited hair supply will enable the surgeon to achieve the best possible cosmetic results for patients requiring repairs. Expand

TLDR
Because of changes in technique, hair transplanting can now be offered as a reasonable option to more male and female patients who are not responsive to, or likely to benefit from, medical treatment, and may not be advantageous as they first seem. Expand

TLDR
The conclusion is that the low percentage of terminal hair growth from ½ follicular grafts preclude this technique as an alternative method for cosmetic hair transplantation. Expand

The inheritance of common baldness: two B or not two B?
TLDR
The simple mendelian model of Bb and BB can no longer be upheld because of the high prevalence of the trait and the fact that a predisposition inherited from a affected mother is of greater importance than that inherited from an affected father. Expand
