Gone are the days when hair fall or hair problems were primarily associated with old age. In today's world, the environmental pollution, stress, health problems have made hair loss a common problem. People in their early 20's and 30's are suffering from severe hair loss. The hair fall, thinning scalp, baldness in both men and women (often an outcome of Alopecia) brings about endless humiliation and mockery.

What is Hair Transplantation?
In hair transplantation, we have a donor site and a recipient site. The donor site contains the healthy hair follicles that can be used for the hair transplantation. The recipient site, on the other hand, is the site where the transplantation is to take place. Thus, a hair transplantation in simple terms is a procedure that involves the transplantation of hair follicles from the donor site (can be from the sides or the back of the head) into the recipient site for permanent hair restoration.
