Description

During a hair transplant, hairs are moved from an area of thick growth to bald areas.

Most hair transplants are done in a doctor’s office. The procedure is performed as follows:

  • You receive local anesthesia to numb the scalp. You may also receive medicine to relax you.
  • Your scalp is thoroughly cleaned.
  • A strip of your hairy scalp is removed using a scalpel (surgical knife) and set aside. This area of your scalp is called the donor area. The scalp is closed using tiny stitches.
  • Small groups of hairs, or individual hairs, are carefully separated out from the removed scalp.
  • The bald areas that will receive these healthy hairs are cleaned. These areas of your scalp are called the recipient areas.
  • Tiny cuts are made in the bald area.
  • Healthy hairs are carefully placed in the cuts. During a single treatment session, hundreds or even thousands of hairs may be transplanted.
