History Of Hair Transplant Surgery

Early Stages of Hair Transplant

In the 19th century, the hair skin was scalped and implanted to the area in need. Modern transplant techniques were first introduced in Japan around 1930s on eyebrows and eyelashes, but this method has not been applied in hair transplant operations.

After the second world war, Japan has been isolated, thus for several decades the world had not been aware of these studies. The first hair transplantation in modern age was made in 1950s on male subjects in New York. It was fairly widespread that transplanted hair would not grow in its natural form before those operations. However, in these studies, the hair developed in its natural form and appeared to be stretched.

There have been various studies and practices on hair transplantation for 30 years, but generally positive results haven’t been achieved. In the 1980s small-scale studies were tried in Brazil and news of new methods began to spread around the world. With the micro-surgical method in the USA, thousands of hair roots could have been taken and transplanted in one time, thus now the idea of having a hair transplant has been increased.

Invention of FUE Method

The FUE Method was introduced in the medical world thanks to the 1mm punches developed in Japan in 1988. This particular procedure involved the removal of skin patches that contained hair follicles and move them to tiny holes in the damaged areas. Only a few years later, another Japanese dermatologist made the scale of the grafts smaller. Follicular Unit Extraction Method took place in medical literature in 2002.

 FUT Method Applications

In 1959 the United States reached another landmark in the development of modern hair transplantation. Dr. Norman Orentreich found regions on the head that had been protected from inherited alopecia. The remaining hair usually forms a crown situated at the back of the head. They have the advantage of preserving their longevity, as opposed to where the hair already struggles.
