Dr.Seema Garg presented a paper on “Artistic use of Beard and Chest hair along with the scalp hair to improve the aesthetic result of a hair transplant”.
The paper was very well appreciated. The basic concept highlighted in the paper is – the result of hair transplant depends mainly on the number of grafts transplanted, we can only harvest a limited number of grafts from the safe zone of the scalp and if you want more you have to look on the non-scalp source, here comes the role of beard and chest. But the characteristic of these hair is different from that of the scalp and this is why we should use them along with the scalp hair in the combination to give the perfect natural look.
Dr.Seema also presented the technique of ” no touch to root implantation and simultaneous technique of hair follicle extraction and implantation to reduce graft out body time.
Dr.Seema also presented a detail case report on a patient of hair transplant.
There was a great emphasis on the advantages of FUT which now is called Linear excision surgery or strip surgery. With the advancement of FUE, most of the new Hair restoration surgeons and physicians don’t take much interest in the linear excision.
But in the advanced grade of baldness, you can achieve the best result by combining FUT, FUE, and BHT.
