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 am 3 weeks into recovery and 5 stars so far for my experience in the office with Dr Bolton and my experience with Mike both before and after the procedure. Hopefully the results in 12 months will be just as good!

    In 2006, Dr. Bolton did my hair transplant here in Nashville. I was 56 years old at the time. He did a great job. I was losing tons of hair on top, in the front. The staff was great and followed up with me for several days. I didn’t have any problems at all with the transplant. I’m now 73 years old and my hair looks great. I highly recommend Dr....

    Was a great experience from beginning to end. These guys do excellent work and I was so happy with the difference in my hair. All my friends ask what I’ve done to look so much younger. My wife loves the new younger look. Five. Stars all the way.

    Dr. Bolton's team is awesome. I've had two transplants and achieved density I didn't think was possible. Do yourself a favor and go with Dr Bolton's suggestion. Although he's very patient he knows what he's doing. On his first attempt the hairline was perfect. Don't rush it, allow a few days to relax and keep your new scalp moisturized. Friends and...
