During the past five years,follicular-unit transplantation with microdissected grafts has been successfully used in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia in caucasian people. However, it was very rarely reported in asian patients. Since two and half years ago, we have applied this methods in the treatment of asian male patients with male-pattern baldness. Our clinical experience of 50 cases confirmed that although microscopic follicular-unit graft dissection may take little longer operation time, it can provide smaller, precise and less-injured grafts, hence, achieved much better natural hair density than conventional hair grafting techniques.
