Free Infographic Timeline: The History of Hair Transplant

Free Infographic Timeline- The History of Hair TransplantConceptually, a Japanese dermatologist first developed the idea of hair restoration in 1939. Published by Dr. Okuda, the procedure involved harvesting donor hair from a healthy portion of the scalp, and transplanting it to another area of balding scalp.

In many ways, Dr. Okuda’s groundbreaking idea is similar to the transplant procedures performed today. However, there are a number of important advancements, discoveries, and technological breakthroughs that make today’s hair transplant procedure more comfortable, precise, and effective than ever before.

Evolution of Hair Transplant: 1980 – Present

“Hair Plugs” – 1980s

In the 1980s, hair surgery involved transplanting relatively large sections of donor hair. The end result typically had an unsightly “patchwork” appearance, earning the nickname “Hair Plugs.”

Micrografting – 1990s

The 1990s saw an important breakthrough: Micrografting.

Micrografting involves taking a thin strip of donor hair (the micrograft), dividing it into small clusters of hair follicles, and transplanting them.

For the first time, micrografting enabled surgeons to extract and transplant donor hair with precision and accuracy.

Follicular Unit Extraction – Late 1990s/ early 2000s

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) was another breakthrough in transplant technique.

With FUE, physicians began to use a tiny “punch’ instrument to harvest individual donor hairs. Though time consuming, FUE enabled physicians to harvest donor hair on an incredibly small scale: Approximately 1-3 hair follicles per unit.

FUE enabled surgeons to perform procedures with unparalleled attention to detail and aesthetics.

No linear scars. Beautiful results.

ARTAS® System – 2011

In 2011, the ARTAS System became the first-ever FDA-approved hair transplant robot.

With the help of ARTAS, FUE procedures are now:

  • Up to 50% Faster
  • More Precise
  • Minimally Invasive
  • More Comfortable

Causes may vary, but two of the most influential factors include heredity and hormones.

In terms of heredity, some women may be genetically predisposed to developing hair loss.
