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

    Dr Bolton and his entire staff were absolutely amazing! Walking me through the process multiple times before the actual procedure which was actually very smooth. After scalp micropigmentation, I came across Dr Bolton’s site and did all of my research. Every review is accurate and I do believe that he is the worlds best hair transplant surgeon....

    My brother and I got our procedure with Dr Bolton about ten years ago. Great reception by Josh and their staff. Respectful, positive vibes, great experience. My brother had a great result. I had a previous surgery going in so i had less donor hair, but my outcome was great still. Transplanted hairs are still holding on till this day. Scar looks...

    My experience with Dr Bolton and Josh has been amazing. I came to Dr Bolton as a very skeptical patient. After years of been scammed by one company after another promising that they "had the cure", I honestly didn't think anything would work. Dr Bolton and Josh were very upfront and honest with me from the very beginning. The surgery and recovery...

    Dr Bolton is the BEST. My hair transplant came out perfect and even exceeded my expectations. I had two horrible hair transplants with two different doctors. Dr Bolton assured me he could fix the other two doctor's screw ups. Dr Bolton mentioned that most hair transplant doctors have no clue how to perform a hair transplant on a black man's hair....

    My name is Franz, I'm a French man leaving in Springfield Massachusetts where I'm a student in Business and Administration and soon in Accounting. With the stress of my studies I started to seriously loose what was left of my hairline. I had my hair transplant at Great Hair Transplant a year ago (March 17 2020) and the result is just outstanding,...

    I had a great experience. I was in and out in a few hours and fell asleep during the procedure it was so painless. Recovery was no fun but I would do it all again to keep my results. After procedure communication has been great too. No complaints.
