hair restoration and hair transplant
The field of hair restoration, hair transplant has had an uproar over the past decades with new techniques and inventions. From the days of punch grafting to the present day of follicular unit hair transplantation. Techniques have evolved in the last 50 years, resulting in more natural (and aesthetically pleasing) hair transplants. The discussion of transplantation refers to micrografts or mini-grafts or, more specifically in current nomenclature, follicular grafts.

ANATOMY OF HAIR
Hair consists of a shaft and a root. The shaft is the visible portion of the scalp surface. The root or bulb is the follicle and sits at an oblique angle in the scalp. Hair grows at different angles, depending on the site of the scalp, and the proper angulation of the hair is key in hair restoration surgery to effect a natural result.“Follicle” literally means a “Hair Root”.
