Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that moves individual hair follicles from a part of the body called the 'donor site' to a bald or balding part of the body known as the 'recipient site'. The procedure is minimally invasive and involves grafts containing hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding being transplanted to the bald scalp. It is primarily used to treat male baldness but can also be used to restore hair in other parts of the body including eyelashes, eyebrows and chest hair.
The third volume of Hair Transplant 360 provides surgeons with the latest knowledge and techniques in hair transplantation. Written by an extensive author team from throughout Europe, the USA and Canada, this comprehensive guide consists of eighty chapters describing new technologies and advances in existing procedures.
The book includes numerous clinical photographs and illustrations, and accompanying DVDs demonstrate various hair transplant procedures.
