Hair transplantation (also known as hair transplants or grafting) is a surgical technique that involves moving individual hair follicles from one part of the body (the donor site) to bald or balding parts (the recipient site).
There are two types of procedures.
Strip Harvesting – a strip of scalp is removed under local anesthesia and the area is then sutured back together. The piece of scalp tissue is then cut in to small pieces of tissue called grafts which are then transplanted back in to the thinning area of the patient’s head.
Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE Harvesting – individual follicles of hair are removed under local anesthesia. This micro removal uses tiny areas of between 0.6mm and 1.25mm in diameter. Each follicle is then reinserted back in to the scalp in the thinning area using a micro blade. Because individual follicles are removed, only small, punctate scars remain and any post-surgical pain is minimized.
