Organic Hair Transplantation: A New Concept in Hair Transplantation

    TLDR Using stem cell-enriched fat injections before hair transplant surgery can result in less hair loss and thicker hair.
    The study evaluated the efficacy of a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant surgery performed on scalps pre-treated with an Adipose-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cell (ADMSC)-enriched lipograft in 18 patients (17 male, 1 female). The patients were divided into a control group and a test group, each consisting of 8 subjects. The control group was treated with a classical FUE hair transplant, while the test group received an ADMSC-enriched lipograft injection in the donor scalp before FUE grafts were placed. The results showed that patients who received pre-treatment with the ADMSC-enriched lipograft demonstrated less hair loss and thicker follicular diameter in pre-existing hair. All patients reported a high degree of satisfaction with their surgical outcome. The study concluded that the combined approach to treating hair loss does indeed afford an advantage over FUE surgical intervention on its own. However, the authors suggest that these new methods should be performed on a larger patient population in randomized trials to realize the full benefits of the method.
