Hair Transplant: What is a Hair Transplant?

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 hair transplant procedure and what hair transplant techniques are used to achieve best results.

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:

Steps in a Hair Transplant Procedure

01. Donor Area Preparation


The patient is prepared for the hair transplant with the hair transplant specialist locating the hair follicles from the head which are genetically resistant 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 with local anesthesia.

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 technique, 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. Approximately 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 hair grafts), follicular unit grafts (grafts containing 2-4 hairs) and multiple follicular unit grafts or Bolton Bundles™(grafts that contain more than 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 the 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 grafts in the front of the hairline and three or four placed behind them. Multiple follicular unit bundles 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

    brett is hands down the best there is. i am a retired ER doc and had my first transplant nov 2018 with excellent results. i went back nov 19 for a repeat - you cannot cover a vacant lot with one load of sod - and now i have a full lawn. No one can do this kind of miracle except Brett and his full laen crew

    I chose Dr. Bolton because of his excellent reputation. He did a great job. No pain. Easy recovery and I'm very pleased with my results. He filled in my receding hairline and crown. VERY natural looking hairline. He treats each hair follicle like it's his own baby and that's what makes for graft survival and great results. Great job. Thanks Dr. B!

    I came to Dr. Bolton from Tampa, FL, and I would not regret it. I am 19 years old, and was very anxious and scared at first, but Dr. Bolton and his team made it very comfortable for me during the surgery. I am 4 months in and am already very happy for the results. He is one of the best in the business. Would definitely recommend him.

    I am more than happy with the procedure I had with Dr. Bolton a few days ago. This is my third hair transplant and my only regret is that he didn’t do the first two. He and his staff are extremely professional and accommodating, creating a very comfortable environment. I would highly recommend using Dr. Bolton. With Dr. Bolton’s procedure, I...

    Went in on June 2019 and I am now enjoying the fact that I never have to wear a hat ever again! Toons of compliments from co-workers, friends and family telling me that my hair looks longer or my hair is growing. Definitely a life changing procedure. Very helpful staff. Dr. Bolton and Josh are the greatest. They help you with everything. I wouldn’t...

    Very professional and happy with the results. I was impressed to learn that the only thing Dr Bolton does is hair transplants and only 1 per day!! You get his FULL ATTENTION for that whole day and procedure. He made me the VIP and studied my male pattern baldness for my best results. Very detailed where to cut, place hair and angles for front...

I am only at 4.5mos post-op (Full results are typically at 12mos). Josh was my patient advisor and provided me with realistic expectations and answered all of my questions. Procedure is...

    I had my HT procedure on June 30, 2020. Both Josh and Dr. Bolton were amazing! It's only been 2 weeks and I'm satisfied. The procedure was painless, it was like i went to a barbershop actually. the scar in the back of my head is barely noticeable even when i shave the back of my head. I am patiently waiting for my hair to grow. I highly recommend...
