    TLDR The document concludes that there are various surgical techniques for hair restoration, their success depends on the surgeon's skill, patient's health, and quality of donor hair, and they can potentially improve the mental well-being of those with hair loss.
    The document reviews several surgical techniques for hair restoration, including follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE), both of which involve transplanting hair follicles from one part of the scalp to another. FUT involves removing a strip of scalp and dividing it into individual follicular units, while FUE directly extracts and transplants individual follicular units. Other techniques discussed are the use of tissue expanders, scalp reduction, flap surgery, and hairline lowering. The success of these procedures depends on the surgeon's skill, the patient's health status, and the quality of the donor hair. The document also highlights the potential psychological benefits for patients suffering from hair loss.
