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

    I had my procedure about four months ago and the results have already begun to show. The procedure was very comfortable, though I was nervous at first, and I actually fell asleep at one point watching TV. Dr. Bolton, Michael, and the rest of team were very attentive, informative, and straightforward and were happy to answer any questions I had...

    I found Dr. Bolton's crew incredibly professional! Mike confidently answered all my questions weeks before the procedure, and Dr. Bolton's expertise was clear from the start. All the staff were supportive from beginning to end and confirmed in my mind my choice of surgeons. My results were fantastic. I highly recommend this team to others.

    I had an FUE hair transplant from one of those overpriced hair transplant places, I was very unsatisfied with the results that I was left with. Then I met Doctor Bolton! And after 1 transplant I had hair again! The scar was so minimal that it could barley be seen even with short hair. I only wish that I had gone to him first, I could have saved...

    Dr. Bolton and his staff including Josh Engoren are amazing. In my mind there is simply no other alternative out there for hair transplantation. Dr. Bolton uses his own specialized technique that he pioneered himself in moving hair. His specialized grafts are called Bolton bundles. These are larger slit grafts that you can’t find anywhere else. In...
