Abstract PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This study is aimed towards clinicians involved in the rapidly developing field of hair restoration. We provide a review of recent literature on this topic. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent studies discussed in this article focus on various aspects of follicular unit transplant surgery, including hairline design and associated complications. In addition, a relatively new surgical technique termed follicular unit extraction (FUE) is discussed. In recent years, larger series in FUE have been published, adding to the growing body of literature on this technique. SUMMARY: Follicular unit strip surgery continues to be the gold standard of hair replacement technique. FUE has been used by several authors with success and further refinements may increase its utility in hair restoration surgery.
