Dr. Shapiro's Hair Institute • 1-561-414-4509



A variety of procedures where skin carrying hair follicles is removed from lower back of the head, the "donor area"- and transferred to thinning or balding areas. The most popular varieties are micrografting (1-2 hairs) and mini-grafting (3-8 hairs). A few surgeons selectively use round grafts which have 10-20- hairs each.
