Donor transection biopsy photo (Hair Transplant)

posted by marco, U.K, 01.08.2009, 21:26

Found this in the archives.

When it comes to donor transection, the only way to know for sure is to
perform a biopsy. Unfortunately, that is usually not practical.

Below is a photo taken by Dr. Cole / Dr. Rose several years ago. It
provides an excellent view of what's happening underneath the skin. Great

I believe that, if this photo is meant to show the safety of FUE and lack of transection then it should be treated with caution. To some extent the photo is quite deceptive without any acompanying qualification.

1: It is clear that the follicles extracted by FUE were performed after the strip was removed. Little or no inflamitory responce would be likely in that scenario wheras it could be significant if performed in situ. In other words the surrounding follicles may be effected very diferently when the extraction is performed on the living sclap.

2: If you look at the follicles that can be seen in the forground of the photo then two of thos are very close at the matrix / bulb. Even though they are well peperated at the dermis, it would be imposible to be confident of seperating those be sharp disection without damage.

3: From looking at the photo, it may be that the disection was made only half as deep as the actual follicle and then it was pulled out and this is a common practice in FUE. There can be tearing and pulling that can also disrupt surrounding follicles even though there is no obvious damage.
