Special Issue Introduction

Hair loss can have significant psycho-social manifestations. Although there are now several approved pharmacologic options to prevent hair loss, hair transplantation (HTS) is still the most effective method to treat hair loss. HTS has a history of nearly 210 years, which involves the transplantation of hair, beard, eyebrows, eyelashes, and pubic hair; however, HTS is also a relatively tedious surgical procedure, involving the evaluation and design of the recipient site, selection of the donor area, the calculation of hair follicle (HF) number, separation and preservation of HFs, and the process of HF implantation.
