If you are thinking of having hair replacement surgery, you will want to know exactly what the process entails. While the medical professional you choose will ultimately go into all of the details of the procedure itself, it never hurts to go into your first meeting with some background knowledge. As long as you know exactly what you should expect, it will make the entire process less stressful.
Initially, the donor hair will be selected and harvested. For most people this means the back of the head, though the level of hair loss and the density that is desired will play a vital role in where the hair is chosen from. If a patient does not have enough natural hair growing on the head, he or she will likely not be an ideal candidate to have the surgery in the first place.
Once the donor hairs are selected from their site, the incision is stitched up. The great thing about two of the most popular hair restoration treatments — Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) — is that the incisions are so small that they leave no visible scar. The stitches left behind are typically removed about 10 days after the surgery has been completed.
