Yahoo Article Recommend MicroGrafts to Replace Hair Transplantation - What's the Difference?


Sorry if this might come off as a dumb question, but there was a Yahoo news article which recommends micrograft hair restoration as a alternative to hair transplantation. What is the difference? Is there one? Where would I find more information on nicrograft hair restoration? Thank you.


Today's state of the art surgical hair restoration involves follicular unit grafting - dissecting hairs as they occur naturally in groups of 1s, 2s, 3s, and 4s. Micrografts contain 1 to 2 haired follicular units or sub-follicular units (follicular units split apart to make smaller grafts). Some people use the terms micrografts and follicular units interchangeably which as you can see above, isn't always correct. Learn more about hair transplant graft terminology. Regardless of the terminology used to describe types of grafts, the method of transplanting them is still the same and would be classifed as hair transplantation. Thus, claiming that micrografting is an alternative to hair transplant surgery is an incorrect statement.
