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 was apprehensive going into this but I’m glad I did it! I live in CT near New York City and there are a few places in NYC with good reputations that I had looked into for hair restoration but in the end it was Dr. Bolton that I chose. I had to travel to get the procedure done but I’m completely thrilled with results. Dr. Bolton is great! He...

    Great experience and results! Dr. Bolton and staff are amazing! If you are thinking about getting a hair transplant don’t go anywhere else. Dr. Bolton will give honest expectations and outstanding results. His whole team is great and I couldn’t be happier with my results. I have had a procedure with Bosley and Dr. Bolton blew them away with the...

    My experience with Dr. Bolton and his staff was excellent. I initially had contact with Mike Anticoli who answered many questions I had about my condition and the possible treatment options. Mike was great from start to even today, months after treatment. They both did follow up calls to me after the procedure. Mike was in contact with me daily...

    So far, so good! Had my hair transplant last October. Been in contact with Josh, Dr. Bolton’s correspondent, since day 1. Can’t recommend either of them highly enough. I’m currently only at 5 months but my hairline has already dramatically improved and I’m seeing lots of new hairs popping up. I’ll keep everyone updated as the months progress. I’...

    I had a Max harvest plus procedure with Dr Bolton in October 2020. I had anxiety about the strip being taken out before the procedure, but I can confirm that it does not hurt whatsoever. Dr. B is highly skilled with the scalpel and uses a perfect amount of local anesthetic so there is no discomfort at all when the strip is being taken out. Dr B...

    First let me start off by saying getting a hair transplant is not something anyone should be ashamed of male or female. This like any cosmetic surgery is to help with your self esteem and at the end of the day that's all that matters not someone else's opinion. When you do decide to go on that adventure, please do your research and consider Dr....

    I flew from Montreal (Canada) to have the surgery. Let me tell you that the service was excellent and the surgery went extremely well. The surgery occurred on May first of 2019 (approx. 6000 hairs to lower my hair line). I will post pictures in six months. I've had an excellent service from the whole team. Dr. Bolton and josh gave me their personal...

    The results speak for themselves, and they are absolutely amazing. Many people were sceptical of hair transplants and the results they could achieve. I was one of them. I had already had a FUE transplant (not recommended) done somewhere else a few years ago and didn't get the results I wanted. So, of course, I was even more sceptical than people...

    Four years ago, I had a hair transplant procedure with Bosley in New Orleans. As you can see from the before pictures, it wasn't a huge success. Within a year, I had significantly less hair than I had before the procedure. Last year, I was given Dr. Bolton's name and a glowing recommendation from my hairstylist. I took a chance, made an...
