Plugs-: The early years
The first hair transplant is invented in 1952, which was invented by Dr. Norman Orentreich who was residing in New York. In addition, he performed this hair transplantation procedure for male pattern baldness in order to examine the results. And he joined the term “donor dominance” so that no one can judge your transplanted hair. He said that he actually wants to give you similar characteristics as donor’s hair. At that time, he collects the donor hair from the back of the head or side of the head but this procedure gives less effective results.
Mini-Grafts and Micro-Grafts
These both techniques were invented in 1984, which your surgeon uses the strip method in order to collect hair from the donor area. This technique was used in mini-grafting method whereas micro-grafting method is used with the goal for more hair growth on the center of the scalp. No doubt these both techniques replaced the plug system but these do not give you natural results.
Follicular Unit Transplantation

These incisions further results in scars which cannot fade away over time. This is the traditional way to treat your hair loss, which then supplanted by FUE technique.
