Japanese dermatologists have successfully used single-hair grafts and grafts of two and three hairs for the reconstruction of eyebrows, eyelashes, pubic hair, and alopecic scars in scalps. A brief review of the Japanese literature and surgical technique is given followed by a case report of transplantation of hairs from the scalp as lashes by the author's modification of the Japanese technique.
