Hair Transplantation can be defined as a surgically invasive process wherein healthy hair follicles from one part of the scalp are replaced into the other. The area of the scalp from which healthy hair follicles are extracted is better known as the donor area. The other part of the scalp where the replacement of healthy hair follicles takes place is better known as the recipient area. The process is undertaken in the guidance of an expert physician who is thoroughly experienced with such processes. The whole process might require a few visits in order to get completed. Different kinds of technologies are available but implementation of such technology depends on individual requirements.
There are several processes which need to be followed in order to successfully implement hair transplant. Process of hair transplantation can be carried out as per the following methods:
