Until the middle of the 20th century, doctors could only advise people with alopecia to accept their illness and come to terms with it. But in 1960, everything changed. American plastic surgeon Norman Orentreich has developed an effective method to combat hair loss. It was based on the concept of a donor dominant. Hair transplant by Orentreich has revolutionized the world of plastic surgery.
