Changes in hair transplant techniques since the mid-20th Century.

Hair loss has been a cause for concern almost since the dawn of recorded history. The Ebers Papyrus, discovered at the ancient site of Luxor in Egypt and dating from around 1500 BC, describes prescriptions and invocations for a cure for baldness drawing on medical “knowledge” from thousands of years earlier.
