All surgical hair restorations are based on the redistribution of hair follicles, so creating of new hair is not concerned. The conventional process contains three hair restoration procedures: grafting (hair transplantation), reduce the balding areas, scalp flap surgery. Today, among other procedures hair transplantation has 95% frequency of practice. Hair transplantation has a high success rate, low complication rate and high acceptance rate by patients.

Sometimes this can be extended to the front area. Throughout the 1980s and until the mid-1990s, this method was much more popular, nowadays it is rarely applied. It is very difficult to apply surgical treatment without experience abnormal hair growth, scars and patient discomfort.
Scalp flap surgery is done by very few surgeons because it requires surgical experience. In addition, most patients are not motivated for this method. A single hair flap contains 10000 hair follicle and with 2-3 procedures done in intervals of a couple of weeks dense hair line can be obtained. In the hands of surgeons who don’t have experience complications including flap necrosis may occur. Hair transplantation is the most common hair restoration procedure and can be done with many different techniques. Since 1990s transplanted micro grafts (1-2 bristles)started to be combined with minigrafts (3-5 bristles) and this form the original hair shape. Today follicular unit grafting has become almost standard in hair restoration. Removal of hairless tissue and transplanting only follicular unit brought some advantages. These follicular units can be placed in a very small receiver areas, it provides better density and decrease post operation crusting.
