While hair transplantation has been a well-accepted procedure for decades, scientific and technical advances have helped hair restoration surgeons create a new era of consistent, safe, effective, and-most importantly, natural-looking results. The obvious-looking 'plug-type' transplants of the past have been replaced with living and growing results that truly defy detection. Microsurgical techniques and instrumentation, and artistic appreciation of how hair naturally grows, has led to these advances. The identification of naturally-occurring follicular-units (groups of mostly one, two or three follicles) in the skin, and the ability to successfully transplant literally thousands of these groupings during large sessions of transplantation, allows for the restoration of hair in the vast majority of men and women who suffer from hereditary hair loss.
