Q20. What is the ‘Fox Test?’

A20. The Fox Test is carried out during follicular unit transplantation to see if a patient is suitable for direct extraction.

This means checking to see if hair follicles are easy to remove and if they are suitable for implantation, without the risk of damage.

A biopsy is performed in which these follicles are carefully examined to determine their suitability or not. If they are then the patient can undergo follicular unit extraction.
