Dr. Robert True, Dr. Parsa Mohebi, Dr. Roberto Trivellini, Dr. Ron Shapiro, Dr. James Harris, Dr. Robert Haber are just a few names. The list is too long with all the big names on their platform.
Dr. Anil Garg presented his paper on the “Combination of beard and scalp hair to get the natural result in hair transplant” and “Platelet-rich 3D fibrin scaffold to improve the survival of the graft in hair transplant”
Beard hair is a good source for donor’s hair and helps in improving the result of hair transplant in terms of density and volume. Advanced-grade of baldness can be covered with the combination of beard and scalp hair. But the characteristics of beard hair is different from the scalp hair and to get natural results distribution and mixing of the two is important. This paper is also published in the hair transplant forum international.
Platelets are a rich source of growth factors and provide the biological atmosphere to the grafts outside the body. This study is also published in the Indian Journal of plastic surgery.
Both papers are well appreciated.
Dr. Seema Garg was the Moderator of the session on the “Anesthesia and emergency in hair transplant”. She also presented a paper on the Measures to improve graft survival to get better results in hair transplants.
Emergency in hair transplant is rare but if it occurs may be life-threatening to the patient as well as very much disturbing for the surgeon. So, if a surgeon knows about all the details of the patient, history of medicines, allergy, take care of the dose of local anesthesia, these can be avoided. This session was very well appreciated. Dr. Aditya Gupta and Dr. Marie Schamback were among the speakers.
The result of hair transplants will be definitely better if all the implanted grafts grow, So what are the measures to improve graft survival was explained in the paper presented by Dr. Seema Garg.
The surgical workshop was conducted on the 27th of Feb 2020. The long hair FUE was the main attraction and was beautifully demonstrated. Also, the manual FUE, motorized FUE, and Scalp Micro-pigmentation were simultaneously demonstrated in other operating rooms.
So it was really a great workshop and conference with a lot to learn and share with the renowned hair transplant surgeons from all over the world.
Thanks to Scientific committee chairpersons Dr. Robert True and Dr. Trivellini for inviting us to one of the best FUE workshops.
