At HAIR LIFE the surgical transplantation of hair follicles is a remarkably simple outpatient procedure.
Hair transplantation is a minor outpatient surgery that simply relocates hair follicles from the donor area to the balding site. The procedure first begins with the surgeon removing a donor strip from the donor site, which is located on the back or side of scalp. During the procedure, local anesthesia is administrated to relieve any discomfort.
Our doctor will remove a strip of skin from donor area and close artistically. The donor strip is further cut into 3 sizes of grafts- the micro graft, the single follicular unit, and modified follicular unit. The micro graft has 1 hair; single follicular unit has about 2 hairs; and the modified follicular unit has 2 to 4 hairs. The surgical graft technicians then isolated individual hair follicles from the donor strip and implant them into the graft region. The grafts are inserted into per-cut micro and mini slits that are strategically designed to aesthetically improve the density of your existing hair, lower the hairline, and fill in the balding areas.

STEP -3 PROCEDURE
Follicular unit transplantation is a procedure where hair is transplanted from areas at the back and sides of the scalp, and moved to balding areas of the scalp. The patient is anesthetized and a doctor removes strips of tissue from the donor area, and, once extracted, the donor strip is cut into individual follicular units.
The doctor then makes tiny holes in the scalp, where the follicular unit grafts are carefully placed. The placement of the grafts is usually done by a team of nurses or healthcare assistants.
The donor strip is processed under a microscope, allowing the precise extraction of graft units.
