The second edition of Hair Transplant 360: Volume 4 – Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is an illustrated guide to this minimally invasive procedure, involving the grafting of hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding, onto a bald scalp. This book is edited by Samuel M Lam, from the Lam Institute for Hair Restoration, Texas, and Kenneth L Williams Jr from Orange County Hair Restoration, California.
With the advent of hybrid-punch technology for follicular unit excision (FUE) in 2017, the first edition of this book became outdated and required a major revision.
The new edition more than doubles the scope of the prior edition from 25 chapters in a single book, to 60 chapters in two hardcover volumes.
The first volume updates and expands on the previous edition’s sections and is divided into the following: Basics, Operative Fundamentals, Practice Considerations, and Devices.
The second volume is entirely new and is sectioned into Concepts, Techniques, Adjunctive Measures, Regional and Ethnic, Complications and Repair, and How I Do It and Special Topics.
This unique, comprehensive text provides practical, up to date knowledge on FUE and incorporates over 100 videos that cover a range of subjects showcasing operative technique, interviews, video lectures and much more, all easily accessed via a QR code embedded in each chapter.
In addition, an app allows the video/photo/illustration/text experience to be completely portable with a tablet or phone.
