Dr. Rahal - Follicular Unit Transplant:
The concept of follicular unit transplants is to relocate hair and its respective follicles from the donor area - the safe zone in the back and sides of the head - to the recipient areas - front, top or crown of the head, eyebrows, eyelashes and facial hair.
The strip method involves removing a small strip of hair, which may include thousands of follicular units. The strip is then divided into individual grafts, called follicular units, by utilizing stereoscopic microscopes for magnification. It is essential to do this step with the microscope in order to avoid damaging grafts. Each of these grafts may contain one, two or three hairs.
This type of dissection approach allows us to transplant thousands of follicular units and ultimately thousands of hairs in one surgery at one time. A session may vary from a few hundred grafts to more than 5,000 grafts in a single procedure.
This method will leave a tiny donor scar that will be covered by the surrounding hair. Yet, the only time you will actually be able to see the scar is if you decide to shave your entire head.
Trichophytic scar, a unique way of removing the strip and closure, is currently used on all our patients. The advantage of this scar-closure technique is to allow the hairs at the closure point to grow right through the scar. This will add camouflage to the scar and reduce its visibility.
