Every year the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) holds its annual scientific meeting to discuss hair loss and advancements in medical and surgical hair restoration. This year, the ISHRS meeting was held in San Francisco, CA and the topics discussed were in stark contrast to those that were on the agenda at the first San Francisco meeting 14 years ago.

 

The publishers of this community were not able to attend this year's conference but we interviewed a number of recommended physicians in order to provide our members with their input on the meeting. These highlights have been presented on our popular Hair Loss Q&A Blog.

"Results of Hair Counts and Growth Yield

 

The hairs growing in each study box were counted using a technique published by Dr. Beehner in great detail in the Unger-Shapiro text, “Hair Transplantation”. It was observed that grafts harvested via strip surgery (FUSS) have approximately a 30% improvement in viability over FUE grafts."
