The Basics of Hair Transplantation
Hair transplantation is a minor outpatient surgery that simply relocates existing hair follicles from the donor site to the balding area. The procedure first begins with the surgeon removing a donor strip from the donor site, which is often located on the back or side of the scalp. The donor strip is further cut into 3 sizes of grafts ” the micro graft, the follicular unit, and the bi-follicular unit. The grafts are inserted into pre-cut micro slits that are strategically designed to aesthetically improve the density of your existing hair, lower the hairline, and fill in balding areas.
