Highlights from the World Live Surgery Workshop will be shared with Congress attendees in Prague. Discussions will focus on various FUE punches and techniques, robotic-assisted FUE, and long hair procedures as well as a compare-and-contrast session on FUE and follicular unit transplantation-strip method (FUT).
- Hair Biology Symposium with distinguished faculty presenting their latest research and newest approaches for stimulating hair growth and reversing hair miniaturization. A diverse panel of experts will lead a think tank discussion and share practical ideas for applying the newest information about hair biology in real-world patient settings.
- Hair Follicle Neoformation: The Past, Present and Future of Hair Cloning with a review of hair cloning, a procedure during which scientists can make new fully functional hair follicles in the lab from just a few cells. The technique is just being tested but is expected to move forward with practical applications for humans in the future.
- Transgender Transplantation with a focus on the rights and needs of the LGBTQ community as increasing numbers of individuals seek services to achieve physical change. Hairline feminization and facial hair transplant procedures have improved and provide natural-looking results when performed correctly by a trained physician. The session will also focus on HRS surgical indications and techniques which are critically important aspects of transgender care. In its just-released 2017 Practice Census, the ISHRS found that one-quarter of physician respondents indicated an increase in transgender hair transplants.
