A hair transplant procedure moves hair from a donor site to fill other areas that have thin or no hair at all. It is a simple, outpatient procedure that requires local anesthesia and is a permanent solution that doesn’t require ongoing maintenance - except of course for haircutting and styling!
The surgery starts by preparing removing strips of tissue from the balding or thinning area and replacing this with grafts containing healthy hair follicles. The grafts are usually placed in varying densities. After the surgery, you will notice countless tiny incisions with short hair stubble showing from the new grafts.
The duration of the surgery often depend on the extent of the baldness but typically lasts between 4- 8 hours. Hair transplant can always be repeated if you, later on, wish to have denser hair.
Following the surgery, you will be put on medication for several days. This usually includes antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drug. Since the area is covered with gauze, you may have to wear a pressure bandage for the first two days.
After about a week, the tenderness and scabbing in the transplant area will clear up, an indication that the tiny graft incisions are finally healing. It is at this time when you can resume your normal activities. The hair grafts will fall out initially, but will grow back in the following months.
