A Hair Restoration / Hair Transplant is a procedure in which a dermatological surgeon moves hair to a bald area of the head. The surgeon usually moves hair from the back or side of the head to the front or top of the head. Hair transplants typically occur in a medical office under local anesthesia. After thoroughly cleaning your scalp, a surgeon uses a small needle to numb an area of your head with local anesthesia. Next, they use a scalpel to remove a round section of your scalp covered with hair. Then they sew the scalp closed. The surgeon next separates the removed portion of scalp into small sections using a magnifying lens and sharp surgical knife. When implanted, these sections will help achieve natural-looking hair growth. The surgeon makes tiny holes with a blade or needle in the area of your scalp that is receiving the hair transplant. They gently place hairs in these holes. During one treatment session, a surgeon may transplant hundreds or even thousands of hairs.
