Hello Doctor, what are your thoughts on person to person hair transplants?
Person to person hair transplants only works with identical twins because with non-identical twins or other person to person hair transplants, each hair follicular unit (a complete organ system) rejects as would a kidney or a liver. I have done one set of identical twins back in the mid-1990s. It worked out fine. The reason that there was a difference in hair loss between the twins (which should not be the case) was that one twin wore a Hair System which was attached with tape and glues which pulled out the hair at the point of attachment. The donor’s identical twin didn’t use a hair system and although he had only a little bit of recession, he had not lost his hair as his twin brother did.
