Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that includes removal of hair follicles from the ‘donor site’ to a bald area of the head. This procedure is majorly used to treat male pattern baldness. Men suffering from pattern baldness, women with thinning hair and victims of scalp or burn injury generally opt for hair transplant.

Hair transplantation history commenced several decades ago in Japan. But the milestone of modern hair transplantation was achieved in the 1950s through Dr. Orentreich’s research. He coined the term ‘donor dominance’ to explain the basic principle of hair transplantation that states, transplanted hair displays similar characteristics to that of donor site. Mini-grafting technique was introduced in 1984 that uses smaller grafts cut from strip of donor tissue. Mini-micro hair grafting techniques gradually replaced the plug technique and became major form of hair restoration surgery over next 20 years. In 1995, follicular unit transplantation (FUT) technique was introduced that uses stereo-microscopic graft dissection to obtain follicular units from donor site. This technique delivered improved results as well as increased the skills required by healthcare professionals to perform hair transplant. FUT became industry ‘gold standard’ for surgical hair restoration by the year 2000. Later in 2005, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) gained momentum as it reduced damage caused to the follicular units during extraction. Since then, the industry has witnessed tremendous advancements over the recent years. Some of recent technological innovations include Robotic Follicular Unit Extraction (R-FUE), Robotic Recipient Site Creation, Long-Hair Robotic FUE, ARTAS 9x Hair Transplant System among others.
