You may already know you’re a perfect candidate for a hair transplant and may even have your
surgery date scheduled. But, most patients are still curious about what happens during a
transplant procedure and what hair transplant techniques are used to achieve best
Hair transplant techniques can be very effective for hair loss patients and are a one day
out-patient process which requires only local anesthesia.
See a video that illustrates Hair Transplant Stages: "What
Happens During and After a
Hair Transplant". This timeline goes from 0-2 years later:
The patient is prepared for the hair transplant with the
hair transplant specialist locating the hair follicles from the head which are genetically
to going bald. These are the same follicles which are to be transplanted into balding areas. The
donor area of hair is trimmed and prepared for surgery. The donor area of hair is then injected
02. Donor Tissue Removed
Next, the donor tissue which has the bald resistant
follicles is surgically removed and sutured. Using a special MaxHarvest™ hair transplant
the maximum amount of donor tissue is harvested which yeilds the maximum amount of hair for the
patient. Hair is combed over the donor area so the sutures aren’t visible to anyone.
seven to ten days after the hair transplant, these sutures are removed.
03. Donor Tissue Trimmed
At this point during the hair transplant, the donor tissue
is trimmed and made into micrografts (single
grafts), follicular unit grafts
containing 2-4 hairs) and multiple
follicular unit grafts or Bolton Bundles™(grafts that contain more
one multiple follicular unit - up to 8 hairs) by surgical technicians.
04. Paper cut-Sized Slits are Made
Very small slits are made in the balding area
during the hair transplant. These slits are created in irregular patterns, which is what makes
hair transplant so effective and the results so natural.
05. Grafts Placed
At this point, the follicular unit grafts are placed into the
tiny slits. These grafts are placed in varying densities, with the smallest one and two hair
in the front of the hairline and three or four placed behind them. Multiple follicular unit
are placed behind the hairline to give more density.
06. After the hair transplant
After the hair transplant is complete, the patient is fully awake and ready to leave the hair
transplant facility. There will be short hair stubble showing from the new grafts and there will
be hundreds of tiny slits somewhat visible on the scalp. These slits are typically completely
gone within one week, as they heal very quickly

we had conversations about hair in gym and other places.Guys usually would... view more
I started loosing my hair about 5 years ago and I had to do something about it. FUE was the method that I thought would be the best(so called scarless.not true,you get a lot of small scars).To be fair the doctor I picked did as good job as FUE could offer but the method does not give you enough hair,one year later I have had another FUE procedure... view more
Very personable and professional. My discussion with Dr. Brett Bolton was both friendly and informative and through my research and experience believe him to be the best in his field. His staff was also very professional and friendly and I would highly recommend him to anyone considering a hair transplant!
Expectations were well communicated. Premeeting was truly consultative. All my questions were answered. From there they were a class act. Highly recommend going with Josh's lodging arrangement. I give them five stars.
I had a H.T. with Dr. Brett Bolton about 18 mths ago and had a really great experience there- very happy with the results, especially with his ability to help conceal/blend a terrible, previous HT surgery I had with another doctor 20 years ago. It was such a difference, just wish I had gone to him the first time around. I'm getting ready to... view more
I visited dr. Bolton like many about my concerns about my thinning hair. I visited other hair restoration, but felt the most comfortable with Dr. Brett Bolton, josh and his professional staff. He was honest, didn't sugar coat anything which I appreciated. I had surgery in August of 2015. Couldn't be happier with my results. Best decision I ever... view more
I had been experiencing hair loss for the past 10 years, my mid Twenties. I had been in denial of this fact, and family and friends, trying to be nice I guess, would confirm I was "crazy, you're not going bald!". I had researched hair transplants for years, and even had consultations with local hair doctors in my area.; Including the doctor who... view more
It was an amazing experience From the time I got there to the time I left they made me feel very comfortable. The staff was very knowledgeable and Dr Bolton was extremely professional in his work. Mike the hair consultant was amazing and the results I have with my hair exceeded all my expectations
You guys are champions!!!!!!!

From the moment I walked into Dr. Brett Bolton's office, I had a good feeling. Meeting with Josh and Dr. Brett Bolton for the first time only reinforced this feeling. They both gave me their undivided attention and answered all my questions. I was at a low point in my life as far as self-confidence due to my hair loss (which had seemingly sped up... view more
I reached my 4 month mark (May 24, 2014) a few days ago and I finally reached a point where it looks like it's going to be a real success! Dr. Brett Bolton and the staff provided a very hospitable environment for the procedure; it was very inviting, clean and relaxing. Those first few months couldn't have come to an end soon enough! A concern of... view more
I am glad I spoke to Josh because I thought my results were good at 3 months but was not sure if I was going to get more or not. He informed me that I had at least another 1 year result to come. I am super excited to know that.
I had a horrible experience with Dr. Shapiro. I was left with a big scar and unnatural results. My brother planned on having the procedure after me, I discouraged him from Shapiro. I was so skeptical about the procedure after my bad experience. My brother had the procedure with Dr. Brett Bolton and WOW was everything a night and day difference.... view more
Dr. Brett Bolton and his office staff made my whole experience very enjoyable. I was very nervous like most others and not so knowledgeable about hair transplants in the beginning. I am now so happy with the end result and also my appearance! I will without a doubt continue to recommend Dr. Brett Bolton to anyone I hear of wanting to improve their... view more
I reviewed other hair transplant doctors, and no one compared to Dr. Brett Bolton's compassion, friendly demeanor and great results.I had two procedures at Great Hair Transplants. I started noticing growth at about 6 months. I am very satisfied with my results. If you have any questions about my experience you can email me.
At first, i must admit i was worried. But i would do this a thousand times again, if that meant getting the results i got. And that speaks volume. Not only did the procedure help my appearance, but my confidence as well. I feel great on the outside, as well as the inside.
