Hair grafting is a surgical procedure that involves removing hair follicles from one part of the body (donor site) and transplanting them to another part (recipient site) where hair is thinning or balding. The procedure is also known as hair transplantation or hair restoration surgery.

The procedure involves several steps. First, the surgeon will clean and numb the donor area. Then, they will use a scalpel to remove a strip of skin from the donor area (if FUT method is used). Alternatively, they may use a punch tool to remove individual hair follicles from the donor area (FUE method). The donor area is typically located on the back or sides of the scalp where hair is thickest and less likely to fall out.

Next, the surgeon will prepare the recipient area by making tiny incisions or holes where the hair follicles will be transplanted. The surgeon will then carefully place each hair follicle into the recipient site using forceps or a needle. The surgeon will continue this process until all of the hair follicles have been transplanted.

After the procedure, you may experience some swelling and discomfort in both the donor and recipient areas. You may also notice some scabbing around the transplanted hairs. These side effects are usually temporary and should subside within a few days.

It’s important to note that hair grafting is not a one-time procedure. You may need multiple sessions to achieve your desired results. The number of sessions you need will depend on how much hair you want to transplant and how much donor hair you have available.

Please note that we provide platelet-rich plasma injection (PRP), eyebrows transplantation, and beard and mustache transplantation in addition to the standard service.

Our clinics are capable of achieving large hair transplants during a single procedure. For example, during a 12-hour long procedure, 3200 grafts were transplanted as per the example below.
