Hair transplantation is a surgical process that transfers hair follicles from a certain part of the body known as 'donor site' to a balding part of the body or bald termed as the 'recipient site'. It is primarily known to treat male pattern or collective baldness. In this type of surgery minimally invasive procedure, grafts consist of hair follicles which are genetically resistant to baldness, (like the back of the head) are transplanted to the bald scalp. Hair transplantation can also be performed to restore eyebrows, eyelashes, beard hair, pubic hair, chest hair and to fill in marks or surgery such as face-lifts and previous hair transplants or scars caused by accidents. Hair transplantation differs from skin being grafted in that grafts that contain most all of the epidermis and dermis surrounded by the hair follicle, and many tiny grafts are there, transplanted rather than one strip of skin.
Since hair grows naturally in grouping of 1 to 4 hairs, current researches transplant and group hair follicular units in their naturally grown groupings. Though, modern techniques of hair transplantation can be achieved through a natural appearance by copying original hair orientation. This hair transplant procedure is known as follicular unit transplantation (FUT). Donor hair can be achieved in two different ways- follicular unit extraction (FUE) and strip harvesting,
- Androgenic alopecia
- Eyebrow transplant
- Robotic hair restoration
- Follicular unit extraction
