Back to the Future with the “Dissected–Punch” Technique

Rassman WR, Bernstein RM, Jones RG, McClellan RE, et. Al. Back to the future with the “dissected–punch” technique. Hair Transplant Forum International 2003; 13(5): 409.

Synopsis: This paper proposes that the old punch-graft technique may have a place in modern hair transplant surgery, particularly in patients with significant donor scarring and when further linear incisions are not possible. In these cases, punch harvesting (with subsequent microscopic division of the punch grafts) may be better than FUE, since extracting individual follicular units can be difficult in areas of scarring.
