    If a transplated follicular unit(s) dies, how does the body rid itself of it?

    Thanks,

    Ron

    Ron,

    I’m a little confused by your question. Normally, when anything is transplanted into the human body, it comes from a foreign source and the body naturally tries to rid itself of it. However, because follicular units are tissues from the same body, the body won’t directly fight the transplant (unless there is some type of infection caused by something else in the area). However, I suppose if a graft is damaged or doesn’t take for some reason, it would simply fall out.
