The Hair Removal Phase
A small strip of skin, about 1cm in width will be removed from the back of your head where you still have a lot of thick hair. This will be done under a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort.
The follicle transplantation Phase
Hair follicles in the strip of donor hair will be separated. small surgical incision will be made with a needle in the bald areas of the scalp and follicles will be inserted either individually or in small quantities.
Most clinics will provide an area for you to rest and recover for a few hours before you return home. Some people experience a slight swelling on the forehead for a few days and the scabs from the surgical incision will be visible for about a week.
