The Industry is wondering if lateral slits, dense packing, and mega sessions is the way of the future. For a few innovative surgeons like Dr. Scott Alexander MD, THE FUTURE IS HERE at Biltmore Surgical Hair Restoration.
Through these different steps it has been determined that follicular units or the natural occurring hair bundle is the highest quality and smallest unit of hair that can be transplanted. This is using the natural bundle that occurs in nature and mimicking both the closeness and the angle that appears normally, you can achieve a result that is undetectable from a non-grafted head.
Since these follicular units grow in 1, 2, 3, or 4 hair group bundles, you can artistically place them so they can appear normal with density (dense packing) through tight grouping and also achieve a very normal hairline with the use of one hair follicular grafts. Thus there is no need to split up these family units, which does cause some mortality to the grafts.
