AbstractThe process of replacing a person's hair loss involves a combination of medical hair transplants and a non-medical hair piece. A front natural hair line is formed by surgically transplanting hair follicles from one area of the person's head to the frontal area, with micrografts of 1 to 2 hair follicles being located along the most forward portion of the front natural hair line. The front portion or edge of a non-surgical hair piece is customized to fit precisely behind the front natural hair line and to blend into the surgically transplanted hair.
