History of surgical hair restoration is very old and it has just become more and more known in recent years. In this article, we will talk about its history and development process. First, we have to explain what hair transplant is. Hair transplantation is the transfer of hair follicles taken from the body regions, especially the back of the head near the neck, to the area where the hair is shed. Hair follicles located on the back of the head (neck) is called as donor area. And the hair in this area is preferred as donor hair.

Many men and women suffer from hair loss and this situation causes the reduction of self-confidence. People who lose their hair may be uncomfortable with their physical appearance. At this point, we can say that hair transplant is the only solution. It gives people back their self-confidence. After the surgery, people generally have positive hair transplant reviews.

The Beginning of History of Surgical Hair Restoration

In the nineteenth century, surgical operation of the scalp was used for surgical grafting. The modern transplant technique was used in the 1930s in Japan for eyebrows and eyelashes. However, they have not tried this method in hair transplantation. After World War II, Japan was isolated from the rest of the world for decades.

The first news of modern hair transplantation was heard in New York in the 1950s when dermatologist Orentreich began hair transplantation on male subjects. The idea was that if the hair was transplanted before, it would not develop as the original. However, Orentreich showed that the hair was developing and permanent.  The starting point of history of surgical hair restorationis accepted as 1930’s. However, 1990’s is the time when the actual development took place. 

The FUE hair transplant method, which first began to find a place in the medical world with 1mm punches introduced by Masumi Inaba in Japan in 1988, took its place in the medical literature in 2002, thanks to William R. Rassman and Robert M. Bernstein. In 2007, Dr. Miquen G. Canales and Dr. Robotic FUE hair transplantation method has been developed by David Berman.
