On the day of the surgery, your scalp will be numbed with a local anesthetic. Your doctor will remove a single strip of follicles from a donor area (over ears or on the neck) that does not normally go bald. This incision is sutured shut, and your hair covers it.
Then, the medical team takes that strip of hair and harvests 1000 to 3000 donor follicles that are separated per hair strip. These hair transplants are now grafted onto the scalp in the areas of hair loss, one by one, so that the hairline remains natural. Soon, your donor follicles will be growing hair, healthy, natural hair for the rest of your life.
