Hair Transplant

June 4th, 2014

Dr. Wolfeld answers a question about ethnic hair transplantation and whether it differs from non-ethnic hair transplantation.

Here is a more detailed summary of the video:

Dr. Wolfeld: Yes, it is different. Hair transplantation can be performed with ethnic hair.

However, because ethnic hair may be kinkier or more textured than non-ethnic hair, it just makes the procedure a little bit different.

We can also do robotic hair transplant procedures on ethnic patients. Our robotic system, which is the ARTAS robotic system, knows how to identify ethnic hair to adequately harvest the grafts for proper hair transplantation.

With textured hair, the hair shafts are curved so that the grafts need to be slightly larger as to not damage the follicles.

When performing FUT, the grafts are kept slightly larger by modifying the stereo-microscopic dissection.

In robotic FUE we use a 1.0mm punch rather than the 0.9mm punch that we use for straight and wavy hair.
