Hair loss is a common problem in Japan like the other countries of the world. Genetic, psychological, and medical factors affect production of new hair on scalp. It is a very interesting fact that prior to World War two, no one knew about male pattern baldness in Japan. Research has suggested that due to influence of western fat diet, they started losing the hairs. Prior to war they used low fat protein diet essential for healthy hair growth. Japanese are experiencing partial hair loss and baldness problems like people from other countries and race.
Another interesting fact is that modern hair transplant techniques were invented by a Japanese doctor Dr. Okuda in early 1930s. Unfortunately due to out break of war, this research could not be continued for twenty years until an American doctor performed transplant surgery in 1950s.

Surgeons in Japan will select FUE or FUT for treatment according to patient’s need and affordability. Cost of FUE is as twice as FUT in Japan like other countries. In FUT surgery, hair follicles are harvested in form of a strip and implanted into bald area of scalp. But in FUE, follicles are removed one by one and later inserted into scalp. Each method has its own pros and cons, but FUE is considered most painless method of transplant. Experts of both treatments are available in Japan.
