Hair transplant procedure involves the transfer of healthy hair follicles from the donor area to the thinning or balding areas of the scalp. The hair transplant procedure is safe and pain-free. And the best part is that the transplanted hair stays and grows for the rest of your life.
The procedure is done under the local anesthetic. Grafts are obtained from the donor area (Back of the head in most cases). Once medical technicians prepared grafts as units of hair follicles, a doctor or physician assistant creates the recipient sites of your hair loss affected region for follicular unit implantation.
Duration of Procedure
The duration depends upon the amount of grafts required; sometimes a procedure for 1000 grafts takes 2-4 hours.3-5 hours may require when grafts number is around 1,500. If over 2,000 grafts needed the process would take concerning 6-7 hours.
Most of the transplanted hair goes through a shedding phase of 2-3 months at that time the hair starts growing at an equivalent rate as your non-transplanted hair. The common growth is half an inch per month.
The result of implanted hairs can be seen after 6 to 8 months. These transplanted hairs are permanent. Transplanted hairs will stay forever and will continue with its normal growth, because of DHT hormones would not have an effect on them.
