Surgical hair transplantation is a very effective hair restoration solution for several types of alopecia. Follicular unit transplantation hair surgery and follicular unit extraction hair surgery are both based on the principle of donor domination, a term which describes the fact that the transplanted follicular unit will continue to behave on the recipient area as it did on the donor area. This means that FUT hair transplant and FUE hair transplant are very effective in the case of male pattern baldness, or androgenic alopecia, but can be less effective in the case of alopecia areata, where the surgeon cannot establish for certain how reliable the donor area really is. Also, the aesthetic quality of any surgical hair transplantation procedure depends on the density of the donor area; the more hair strands available on the donor area, the more the surgeon can transplant to the recipient area without producing any noticeable scars. When the hair loss is diffused, the quality of any hair transplantation outcome will be affected due to the fact that the donor area itself can present considerable hair loss and will not be able to guarantee permanent results. Also, because there is less hair on the donor area, the surgical scars become more noticeable.
