Hair restoration has long been thought of as restoring hair predominantly in the scalp in men and women who have lost hair for various reasons. Advances in hair restoration techniques have made it possible to transplant hair in non-scalp areas of the face where patients may have never had hair. Refinements in techniques have allowed for the restoration of beard hair and eyebrow hair with very natural appearing results.
