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

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...

I contacted Dr. Bolton's office and spoke to his...

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 cant find anywhere else. In...
