Follicular unit transplants have ushered in a new era in surgical hair replacement. Hairs grow from the scalp in natural groups called follicular units, containing from one to four hairs. Follicular unit grafting is the transplanting or moving these units to the bald or thinning areas.

African Americans:

Hair Transplantation In African Americans

The techniques, procedures, and indications for hair transplantation are no different for African Americans than for anybody else. The only reason for discussing this separately is that in the past, we often discouraged hair transplantation in this population because of the difficulty in obtaining viable grafts from the donor area. When we used larger grafts, it was very difficult to remove the typically curved hair follicle without risking damage to it.

The modern, advanced technology of follicular unit transplantation has revolutionized hair transplantation in African Americans. (Dr. Tessler was featured in a cover story in the Mind and Body section of The Detroit Free Press regarding this topic).

Now we can separate these small, individual groups of curved hair follicles using a microscope. Then we transplant them close together into very small openings in the bald or thinning areas. The result is a much better, thicker hairline, often achieved in only one procedure.
