BACKGROUND Pubic atrichosis or hypotrichosis is a common condition in Korean women of Mongolian origin. This results in many patients receiving hair restoration surgery, which is currently thought to be the only definitive therapy. OBJECTIVE To pursue more natural and realistic-appearing results, to define patient characteristics, and to estimate the survival rate of transplanted pubic hair through restoration surgery, we examined our cases of pubic hair restoration surgery with single-hair…

Contemporary Management of Alopecia: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis for Surgeons
TLDR
Surgical hair restoration for nonscarring and scarring alopecia yields high graft survival and satisfaction rates and a meta-analysis of literature on micrografts and minigrafts found this approach to be feasible and effective.
Pubic Hair Transplantation
TLDR
In this chapter, the author reviews the practice of hair transplantation in the pubic area using hair implanters.
Correction of pubic vitiligo with hair transplantation plus narrow-band ultraviolet B light therapy.
TLDR
Based on the fact that repigmentation of vitiligo usually starts in the perifollicular area, hair transplantation combined with narrow-band ultraviolet light B (NBUVB) therapy to treat pubic vitiliga is used.
Guidelines on Hair Restoration for East Asian Patients
TLDR
Recommendations for hairline design, donor harvesting, graft preparation and placement, and medical treatment that are appropriate for hair transplantation in East Asian patients are provided.
Pubic Hair Transplant
TLDR
Before the surgical procedure, the patient’s expectations and the transplant hairline design should be identified, and surgical treatment may help the patient in recovering their mental health.
The effects of total laser pubic hair removal on sexual functions, body perception and self-esteem in women
TLDR
Self-esteem, genital and total body image, sexual desire, sexual arousal and sexual satisfaction was improved after TLPHR procedure, and wider sampled studies examining the effects of laser pubic hair removal on individual, relational and psychosocial issues are needed.

TLDR
In designing a pubic hair graft, it is important to know the patients' desire and to make a design based on it for the satisfaction of the patients and for natural-appearing results.
Does the Recipient Site Influence the Hair Growth Characteristics in Hair Transplantation?
TLDR
Evaluating whether the transplanted hairs maintain their hair growth characteristics after transplantation to a new anatomic site other than the scalp strongly suggest that the recipient site affects some characteristics of transplants hairs, such as their growth and survival rates.
Androgens and human hair growth
TLDR
This review summarizes the present understanding of the structure and function of the human hair follicle and its hormonal regulation, particularly by androgens and discusses androgen dependent clinical conditions of hair growth and their treatment.

The Hormonal Control of Hair Growth
TLDR
Hair follicles are still sense organs, and many animals, for example rodents and carnivores, have specialized sensory vibrissae, but hair performs more important functions, and the role of hair in the dissemination of scent from the skin glands is less apparent.
Variations in the Pattern of Pubertal Changes in Boys
TLDR
Mixed longitudinal data on the physical changes at puberty in 228 normal boys are presented together with normal standards for stages of genital and pubic hair development, finding that boys' genitalia begin to develop only about 6 months later than the girls' breasts and Pubic hair appears about 1½ years later in boys than in girls.
The normal trichogram of pubic hair
The parameters of the trichogram of the pubic hair were studied with a previously described technique. Measurements were made on males and on non‐pregnant, pregnant and post‐partum females.
Mechanisms of Androgen-mediated Hair Growth
Analyses of hair distribution in normal adult controls, in patients with varying defects of androgen synthesis or androgen action, and in women with virilization syndromes have enabled us to
