The recent American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery–sponsored International Symposium on Hair Replacement Surgery drew a large expert group of faculty and participants from throughout the world. New techniques and refinement of existing procedures were presented stimulating controversy and thought-provoking discussions. The featured speakers included Drs Emanuel Marritt, Denver; Thomas Alt, Minneapolis; and Pierre Fornier, Paris; as well as course directors Drs Richard W. Fleming and Toby G. Mayer, Beverly Hills, Calif.
Marritt discussed the evolution of his use of micrografts, single-hair grafts, and micrograft dilators. Although this cannot be done over the entire recipient scalp, it does help to overcome tufting of the hairline after punch graft transplantation. He has developed a rapid practical technique, replacing what used to be a very time-consuming procedure (JDermatol Surg Oncol 1988;14:268-275). Results were also presented on the use of larger minigrafts in the middle aspect of the scalp.
