The new evolution from “Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation” to “Ultra Refined Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation”
Dear Hair Restoration Physician,
It’s exciting to participate in major advances that produce amazing results for people. I remember the excitement of advocating all “follicular unit hair transplantation” on the web back over seven years ago when “mini micro grafting” was the standard.
Many hair transplant surgeons were reluctant to change their ways and adapt to this challenging and demanding new “follicular unit” procedure. Many hair transplant physicians expressed doubts about this procedure’s ability to create the appearance of fullness and the growth rate of grafts transplanted in “mega sessions” of 1,000 plus grafts.
But the physicians who championed large sessions of follicular units demonstrated that patients could achieve excellent growth rates and fullness when the procedure was done optimally. In time many hair transplant physicians followed their lead and rose to the challenge of successfully performing this follicular unit procedure. Most of the physicians who rose to the challenge are the hair restoration physicians we present on our web communities. Patients also fueled this evolution by educating each other and demanding only the best and leaving behind the rest.
Today, the bar for hair restoration surgery has once again been raised to an even higher standard that once again is even more demanding on the physician and staff, while easier on the patient. We call this new procedure “Ultra Refined Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation“. By using very tiny blades that make tiny superficial incisions surgeons can now place more follicular unit grafts into a given area with very good growth rates.
This enables a patient to achieve very good hair density in a given area in only one surgical session. Patients also heal much more rapidly in the recipient area with no visible pitting or cobble stoning.
Today surgeons are also more acutely aware of the importance of varying the angle and direction of their incisions in various areas of the scalp in order to produce new hair growth that mimics normal and natural directions and angles. To learn more about the new “Gold Standard” view Ultra Refined Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation.
This procedure, when done right, provides significant benefits to the patient. Therefore we advocate that patients seek physicians who are capable of doing “Ultra Refined Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation” with excellent results. We also encourage all quality hair transplant physicians to master this procedure and make it available to their patients.
Those who are unwilling or unable to adapt and perform this more demanding procedure will not be granted membership in the Coalition of Independent Hair Restoration Physicians.
Change is often disruptive and requires all of us to change and adopt, including me. We expect that as the bar is raised some physicians unfortunately will not meet the challenge and will no longer be presented on our web communities. But we are committed to staying on the cutting edge in advocating only the best procedures, treatments and doctors for those who visit our sites.
I hope that we will be able to continue presenting you as a truly cutting edge hair transplant provider.
