Follicular Transplantation

March 6th, 1995

Synopsis: This was the first paper on Follicular Unit Transplantation. This publication introduced into the medical literature the idea of using individual, naturally occurring follicular units exclusively in the hair transplant procedure and stressed using large sessions to maximize the aesthetic outcome. The paper defined the various components of Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation, explained the anatomic and physiologic advantage of using follicular units in the procedure and described how follicular units could be used safely in large numbers to complete the hair restoration as quickly as possible. This publication was instrumental in having hair restoration surgeons shift from the older mini-micrografting techniques to the cosmetically superior technique of using follicular units.
