Consider the surgeon to be an artist, and the recipient area is his/her canvas. The idea is to make your scalp look aesthetically appealing. The surgeon uses his/her creative and artistic skills as they have to mark your hairline and do their best to give you a natural look. Only a professional doctor such as Dr. YV Rao can handle this type of artistic yet professional surgery.
Once the doctor has extracted hair follicles from the donor area, they place it on the thinning or balding areas. In other words, recipient area is basically the balding or thinning area. The aim is to mark your hairline and give an appropriate estimation of the grafts.
