Lateral Slit Technique + Asian Hair = Ineffective?

Recommended Posts

  • Senior Member

When transplanting asian hair (oriental decent), do Hair Transplant Surgeons recommend using the Lateral Slit Technique?


Because Asian hair is more perpendicular to the skin, rather than angle like Caucasians, does this mean the L-S-T wont be as advantageous?


If the L-S-T is used with Asian hair, are there any benefits?

I've seen manymany excellent HTs performed by way of lateral slit on Asians; and I've never heard of the lateral slit technique being ineffective or inadequate just because its being performed on an Asian.


I believe Wong developed it, and has indeed used it successfully on many Asians himself, along with Hasson and many others who have adopted it.
