  • In follicular unit hair transplantation, 
  • donor hair is harvested by excising a narrow strip of scalp from the donor area --- an area at the back of the head that is resistant to hair loss. 
  • The production of follicular unit grafts from the donor scalp requires a two-stage process of firstly slivering the ellipse into very fine scalp sections and then dissection of the follicular units from these slivers. 
  • latest hair transplant surgical  techniques: follicular unit transplantation. 
  • Both stages of this process are accomplished by the use of the stereoscopic dissecting microscope. 
  • Each follicular unit in the donor strip contains one to four hairs.
