Obtaining Hair for the Procedure
With local anesthesia, most patients can have the transplant procedure in the doctor’s office. Prior to the start of the procedure, the doctor cleans the scalp and applies an anesthetic that makes it possible to remove a strip of scalp that contains healthy hair. The strip may contain up to 2,000 tiny grafts that the surgeon uses as implants. Depending on the density of hair on the strip, as few as 500 grafts may result. Hair color and quality influence the number of grafts needed for the procedure. Medicine Plus indicates that transplants are usually placed at the front of the scalp.
