And thats genuine "DIRECT VISION" (Hair Transplant)

posted by Dr. Woods Homepage E-mail, Australia, 02.08.2009, 02:43

Dr. Woods good to see that you are posting here. I have a question. Let'
say if a follicle is transected during fue but the bulb is left inside
skin. Will the bulb be able to regenerate into a new terminal hair?

I thought the follicle was the bulb? But I know what you mean, and it's a
good question.

First of all, this was a strip excision. Not FUE

The strip was cut into "blocks",of varying sizes, and each block is given to a tech.

The number and size of the blocks is dependent on how many techs show up that day.


I have seen it hundreds of times when excising tumors or skin cancer from the scalp. A wide excision is neccessary and I often examined the tissue removed.

I felt bad about removing hair but it was imperative to make sure cancer cells were removed..

As for the BULB. Here is a weird, but somehow appropriate analogy

Stand upright...arms together..for a moment imagine you are a hair follicle

You are placed upside down in the skin...then some idiot cuts your head off

The bulb is the "brain"

"If the bulb is left can it re generate a new follicle"....That depends upon how much follicle is left above the bulb , but don't count on it

The overwhelming proof is out there. I would confidently say, in 95 to 100% of cases, NO..Its like saying you can amputate your leg, but don't worry, a new one will sprout...

Take care
