Follicular Unit Transplantation
As surgical hair restoration has evolved, so have the outstanding results that skilled physicians can deliver to their patients through follicle unit transplant techniques.
Follicular Unit Transplantation is the new standard of hair replacement that allows surgeons to recreate the natural hairline.
During hair follicle transplant surgery, surgeons can place Micro Grafts containing one to four hairs into the recipient sites to achieve a more natural appearance.
During follicle unit transplant surgery, careful orientation of the hair follicles so that they follow the natural direction of the hair growth and taking care to place them so they do not overlap or line up unnecessarily, helps to achieve maximum coverage.
Older surgical hair restoration techniques and technology significantly hindered surgeons’ abilities to give their hair transplant patients aesthetically natural-looking hairlines.
The Follicular Unit Transplant technique opens up the way to master the technology and fine art of hairline design known as the ‘snail track’ hairline.
This new technique earns its name from the way it mimics the natural hair line irregularity, ruling out a sharply defined edge. The follicular unit transplant technique encourages denser hair in some parts – a feature of youthful hairlines.
