Recipient area is the canvas in a hair transplant surgery, where the surgeon can truly display his artistic creativity and deliver an aesthetic masterpiece, after all hair transplantation is as much about art as science. There are four main steps in dealing with the recipient area. Marking the hairline and estimation of grafts is the most important steps to give a natural look. There are multiple anatomical markers that need to be addressed while drawing a hairline. The second step is the anesthesia and it should be as painless as possible. This is followed by implantation, which can be achieved by various techniques. There are multiple technicalities to be considered while implanting, such as density, angle, and direction. Once implantation is done, the final step is appropriate postoperative care. Each of these steps has been discussed in detail in this chapter.
