Hi, going through diferent hair transplant doctors I notice they have different titles as well. What is difference between doctors who do, ” ultra refined follicular “, ” microfollicular ” and ” follicular unit ” hair transplants? Thank you.
It can be confusing trying to differentiate one hair restoration physician/clinic or surgical technique from another. No hair transplant surgeon claims on their website that they do “small sessions of relatively unrefined grafting so that they can avoid having a large staff and so they can get to the golf course by afternoon”.
But as it reads on the home page of the Hair Transplant Network “The skill and technique of hair restoration surgeons vary widely, as do their hair transplant results”. After corresponding with hundreds of hair transplant patients and visiting dozens of hair restoration clinics I know this is true no matter what physicians may claim.
Basically the story of modern hair transplantation is the story of ever evolving refinement from the big round plugs of the dark ages to today’s ultra refined follicular unit hair transplantation in which thousands of carefully trimmed grafts are densly packed into very tiny and minimally invasive incisions. For a presentation on how follicular unit hair transplantation has evolved in recent years into ultra refined follicular unit grafting visit the “Ultimate Hair Transplant” page of the Hair Transplant Network.com
Only those ethical physicians and clinics that have developed the skill, staff and techniques to enable them to do the most advanced ultra refined sessions with proven results are granted membership in the Coalition of Independent Hair Restoration Physicians.
Best wishes for finding your way to a truly top notch physician.
