What are Follicular Units and How Do You Use Them in a Hair Transplant?September 23rd, 2015
Here is a more detailed summary of the video:
Dr. Wolfeld: A follicular unit is a grouping of usually one to four hairs and this is how your hair naturally grows from your scalp.
We harvest and extract hairs in these natural groupings of follicular units, and these are transplanted to the frontal hairline and the frontal and top portion of your scalp. Generally, the one-hair follicular unit is placed at the frontal hairline for the most natural aesthetic appearance. And the two- to four-hair follicular units are placed posterior to the frontal hairlines.
By transplanting hair in their naturally occurring follicular units, this gives the most natural appearance in a hair transplant procedure.
