Dana Plastic Surgery Clinic, Samju Building 10F, Gangnamdaero 606, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, 06038, Korea.

Patients undergoing secondary female hairline correction surgery present with dissatisfaction of various causes that require specific solutions. Satisfactory results following secondary revision surgery are achieved only after consideration of the reasons for the patient's dissatisfaction as well as specific factors regarding the state of the hairline, height and width of the forehead, and overall facial type; all of these must be considered when choosing the most suitable surgical method. In the present study, the authors used various surgical approaches according to the patient's characteristics and presenting symptoms in the performance of secondary hairline correction surgery and evaluated the adequacy of each method using a satisfaction survey.

J Cutan Aesthet Surg 2018 Oct-Dec;11(4):195-201

Rejuvenate Hair Transplant Centre, Indore, Madhya Pradesh, India.

FUE or follicular unit excision is one of the methods for hair follicle harvesting in hair transplantation. FUE involves harvesting hairs from the donor area, under local anesthesia which is most commonly the scalp but occasionally beard, chest and other parts of the body, using a circular punch less than a mm, mounted on a manual handle or a motorized hand device or more recently a robotic device. First hair transplant was done by Dr Shoji Okuda in 1937. Read More

Clinica Mediteknia de Dermatología y Trasplante Capilar , Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, España.

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a hair transplantation technique that uses small punches (0.8-1 mm in diameter) to extract the follicular units (FUs). Though initially the technique was not widely accepted because of the difficulty of extracting intact follicular units with such small punches, it has since gained in popularity due mainly to rising patient demand, the availability of better instrumentation and greater surgical skill acquired from experience.

Pretrimmed versus Direct Nonshaven Follicular Unit Extraction.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2017 Mar 16;5(3):e1261. Epub 2017 Mar 16.

Dana Plastic Surgery Clinic, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, Korea.

Background: Shaving the donor area is one of the major deterrents preventing hair transplant patients from selecting follicular unit extraction (FUE). A minimal shaved donor area is possible in strip surgery, but the strip method is not applicable if the patient wishes to avoid a linear donor scar, wishes to minimize postoperative pain, or has insufficient scalp laxity. In these cases, nonshaven FUE (NS-FUE) is potentially a very good choice. Read More

Innovative modified hair follicle harvesting technique with reverse rake scalp elevator for lower occipital donor area in follicular unit extraction hair transplantation.

Indian J Plast Surg 2016 Sep-Dec;49(3):390-396

Department of Plastic Surgery, Grant Government Medical College and Sir J. J. Group of Hospitals, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is one of the widely practiced minimally invasive follicular harvesting techniques employed during hair transplantation. FUE technique has an advantage of utilising lower occipital area and supra-auricular region as a safe donor area described by Unger, in addition to the standard occipital donor area used in strip method (follicular unit transplant). Despite its potential advantages such as rapid recovery, minimal scarring and reduced post-operative pain; its widespread acceptance is limited due to various factors in variable contribution like steeper learning curve and potentially higher follicular transection rates (FTRs).

Hair transplantation in mice: Challenges and solutions.

Wound Repair Regen 2016 07 8;24(4):679-85. Epub 2016 Jun 8.

Department of Medicine (SVHM), the University of Melbourne, Melbourne.

Hair follicle cells contribute to wound healing, skin circulation, and skin diseases including skin cancer, and hair transplantation is a useful technique to study the participation of hair follicle cells in skin homeostasis and wound healing. Although hair follicle transplantation is a well-established human hair-restoration procedure, follicular transplantation techniques in animals have a number of shortcomings and have not been well described or optimized. To facilitate the study of follicular stem and progenitor cells and their interaction with surrounding skin, we have established a new murine transplantation model, similar to follicular unit transplantation in humans.

Development of a Model for Chemotherapy-Induced Alopecia: Profiling of Histological Changes in Human Hair Follicles after Chemotherapy.

J Invest Dermatol 2016 Mar 7;136(3):584-92. Epub 2016 Jan 7.

Laboratory of Cutaneous Aging and Hair Research, Biomedical Research Institute, Seoul National University Hospital, Seoul, Korea; Institute of Human-Environment Interface Biology, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea; Department of Dermatology, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea. Electronic address:

Optimized research models are required to further understand the pathogenesis and prophylaxis of chemotherapy-induced alopecia. Our aim was to develop a mouse model for chemotherapy-induced alopecia by follicular unit transplantation of human hair follicles onto immunodeficient mice. Twenty-two weeks after transplantation, a single dose of cyclophosphamide (Cph) was administered to mice in the Cph100 (100 mg/kg) and Cph150 (150 mg/kg) groups. Read More

Scalp Surgery: Quantitative Analysis of Follicular Unit Growth.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2015 Oct 20;3(10):e539. Epub 2015 Oct 20.

Department of Surgical Sciences, Plastic Surgery Division, University of Parma, Parma, Italy; and the Cutaneous, Mininvasive, Regenerative and Plastic Surgery Unit, Parma University Hospital, Parma, Italy.

Unlabelled: Over the years, different kinds of hair transplantation have been compared in an attempt to overcome male pattern alopecia and, at the same time, maximize both the survival and growth rate of grafted hair. In this study, we have assessed the survival and growth rate of follicular units (FU) in an in vitro model, as compared with that of conventional hair micrografts, to experimentally evaluate and elaborate on the differences between these 2 approaches in hair transplantation procedures.

Methods: Group A (control; n = 100 follicles) was composed of hair micrografts, whereas FUs were assigned to Group B (experimental; n = 100 follicles, n = 35 FUs). Read More

Use of nape and peri-auricular hair by follicular unit extraction to create soft hairlines and temples: my experience with 128 patients.

Authors:
Sanusi Umar

Aesthet Surg J 2015 Nov 22;35(8):903-9. Epub 2015 Sep 22.

Dr Umar is a Clinical Instructor of Medicine, Division of Dermatology, Department of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Los Angeles, CA.

Background: Hairlines and temples can look unnatural due to coarseness of the safe donor area of transplanted scalp hair. Although the thinner caliber of nape and peri-auricular (NPA) hair would be ideal to create softer hairlines, they have not been used mainly because of concerns that they are nonpermanent.

Objective: We assessed the outcome of NPA hair transplanted to hairlines and temples in selected patients. Read More

Advances in hair transplantation: longitudinal partial follicular unit transplantation.

Curr Probl Dermatol 2015 20;47:150-7. Epub 2015 Feb 20.

There are different techniques of hair transplantation. The most common and known hair transplantation methods are the 'strip' method, where a strip of skin containing hair follicles is removed, cut into grafts and implanted in the recipient area, and the follicle unit extraction (FUE) method, in which whole follicle units are extracted one by one and implanted one by one back into the recipient area. The FUE method is more patient friendly and leaves only tiny scars compared to the strip method, which leaves visible linear scars at the donor area. Read More

Optical coherence tomography for planning of follicular unit extraction.

Dermatol Surg 2015 Mar;41(3):358-63

*Department of Cranio-Maxillofacial and Oral Surgery, Medical University Vienna, Vienna, Austria; †Department for Dermatology, Medical University Vienna; ‡Center for Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering, Medical University Vienna, Vienna, Austria.

Background: As the subcutaneous course of the hair follicle cannot be extrapolated from the angle of hair emergence, the follicular unit extraction (FUE) method bears the risk of follicle transsection potentially affecting the success of the whole intervention. Histological examination can provide this angle information but are too time consuming and invasive to be integrated in the workflow.

Objective: In this work, the authors present an effective and noninvasive way to determine these subcutaneous follicle angles. Read More
