Journal of cutaneous and aesthetic surgery;
World Health Organization declared the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) infection a global pandemic. All cosmetic, aesthetic, and hair transplant (HT) surgeries are stopped as elective surgeries may become the reason for infection spread. Most of the HT clinics have stopped surgeries or postponed till lockdown date limit. This pandemic situation has caused financial implications for these setups. India is still working to flatten the curve of the pandemic. Once the peak of the pandemic is over, virus may become endemic, and the risk of transmission of the disease to the HT team is also a possibility. HT field of India is thus in an extremely challenging position. We did a survey among the members of Association of Hair Restoration Surgeons of India (AHRS) to know the current status of the HT field of India and surgeon's perspective toward the situation.
