1. Introduction - Hair Transplantation is a new profession in the history of medicine. Hair loss is the result of one's genetic makeup. The hair loss gene can be inherited from your mother's or father's side of the family. The leading cause of hair loss in men is male pattern baldness or Androgenetic Alopecia. Hair loss in women is also related to genetics, hormones and age. 2. Objective - The aim of my presentation is to show state of the art techniques in hair transplant surgery, and offer some tips in the practice of hair restoration 3. Materials and/or Methods - Strip harvesting and FUE are both acceptable techniques for harvesting donor grafts. Each technique has advantages and disadvantages. On a cost-benefit ratio strip harvesting would seem to provide the most cost effective procedure. FUE is well suited for patients who insist on not having a linear scar. 4.
