LATERAL SLIT TECHNIQUE:

The lateral slit technique, otherwise known as coronal or perpendicular grafting, is an advanced hair transplant surgery method used by select hair restoration surgeons in the Phoenix area. Many top hair transplant doctors agree that the lateral slit procedure is the best technique available for surgeons to replicate a patient’s original or existing hair line, and natural hair growth pattern.

This truly advanced surgical hair restoration technique allows doctors to create small incisions in the scalp at a variety of different angles mimicking natural growth patterns. The donor hairs, called grafts are then transplanted in a “brick like” pattern from side to side, not front to back, eliminating the “corn row effect” that often occurs if a surgeon uses less sophisticated methods of transplantation. The importance of this technique is especially evident in parts of the head such as the temples and areas on the sides of the head, where hair tends to grow flat against the scalp.

The lateral slit technique allows for less trauma to the scalp, when compared to more traditional methods. This allows for more grafts to be placed closer together, providing greater hair density.

CUSTOM CUT BLADES:

When the lateral slit technique is performed, a surgeons’ use of custom cut surgical blades can lead to even better before and after results. These blades are customized to meet the individual needs of each patient, and gives the surgeon more control over the direction and depth of each incision. After surgery recoveries are generally faster with little to no scaring, often making transplanted hair indistinguishable from naturally growing hair.

COMBINING CUSTOM CUT BLADES WITH LATERAL SLIT TECHNIQUE:

The lateral slit technique, combined with the use of custom cut blades, has recently gained popularity because of the natural looking results that specially trained doctors have been able to provide their patients.
