This book is a comprehensive and up-to-date text written by leading experts in their specialized field of hair restoration in Asia. Since demand for hair transplantation has increased worldwide in recent years, new techniques, such as robotic hair restoration surgery, have been rapidly developed in this challenging field. This book describes surgical restoration procedures with the help of illustrations. It also provides many practical tips on surgical techniques such as grafts, follicular unit transplantation (FUT), Laserlax, follicular unit extraction (FUE), and robotic extraction as well as conventional scalp hair restoration. Hair Transplantation in Asians gives readers an overview of the current state of the art of hair transplantation and restoration surgery, which will not only benefit surgeons but also improve patients' QOL.
