Or it can occur as a consequence of hair loss. This treatment requires a donor source. So, there must be a donor area where hairs are removed and used for the restoration of the body part that lacks hair. In most cases, this is the back of the scalp. But it can be other areas such as beard, chest or other areas in the body.
