What happens during Hair Transplant?

Hair Transplant surgery is done with local anesthesia injections. In general, hair is harvested from one part of your head, and grafted to the thinning area.

Talk with your surgeon to choose the best technique for you. Each technique has its own pros and cons. A few of the techniques are:
Strip Harvesting is sometimes called follicular unit transplantation (FUT). FUT removes a strip of hair, usually from the back of the head, and transplanted in the front of the head.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) extracts clusters of a few hair follicles from all over the scalp, and transplants them in the thinning areas. FUE takes longer to do and more hair needs to be cut short to access the follicles, but you’ll have no stiches, less obvious scars, and a quicker recovery.
Scalp Flap Surgery transplants a larger flap of scalp with growing hair into the bald area. Because skin is intact with growing follicles, hair starts growing immediately.

How long will the procedure take to do?

Hair Transplant surgery duration depends on the amount of hair that needs to be transplanted. The transplants are done in a series of appointments.

What does the recovery process look like?

You can return to work within a week or so, but take it easy for the first couple of weeks. Strenuous activity may affect your blood pressure and thus affect the healing of your hair grafts. Small scabs will appear during the first week and fall off on their own.

The grafted hair will shed during the first month, and then slowly regrow over the next three months. You can expect final results in about 8 – 10 months.
