Abstract :

Introduction: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method was introduced by Drs. Rassman and Bernstein in 2002. However, there are some disadvantages FUE is widely accepted in hair transplant surgeons. One of the disadvantages is that it is necessary to shave donor site. This is a major reason that patients hesitate to consent FUE method. In such cases, we make some suggestions that top hair can cover the shaved donor site. Method: We perform FUE procedure combined with non-shaved and partial shaved method. The ratio of non-shaved and shaved area is decided by length and density of patient├ó┬?┬?s donor status. Results: We performed the combined with non-shaved and partial shaved FUE in 53 cases (15 females and 53 males) between Aug 9, 2016-Jan 8, 2018. The number of extracted grafts ranged from 700 to 1500. The ratio of number of grafts extracted from non-shaved and shaved area (N/S ratio) was distributed 0.03 to 2.7. Conclusion: Our novel contrivance, combined with non-shaved and partial shaved FUE is useful for hiding donor site in FUE procedure at relatively low cost compared to non-shaved FUE. medtoshi@gmail.com
