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 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 didnt 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. Boltons 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 wouldnt...

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...

Have been receding since a teenager. At the age of 23, I scheduled a last minute procedure with Bolton and extremely happy with the result (8,000 hairs moved). 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...

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 didnt think anything would work. Dr Bolton and Josh were very upfront and honest with me from the very beginning. The surgery and...
