  • HAIR GRAFTS The most common procedure performed involves hair grafts or hair microplugs. 
  • One must plan on waiting about 4-10 months before those transplanted hairs are long enough to be styled
  • .A minimum of 3-4 grafting sessions is usually required to fill an area of baldness. Most patients need more sessions of grafting as the balding process progresses. 
  • The quality of the results of the hair grafting depends on the particular characteristics of the hair, the balding pattern, and a properly designed hairline as well as the hairstyle. 
  • It is typical with any session to transplant between 500-1000 hairs depending on the length and width of the donor strip and the patient's own density of hair.
  • Patients can wash their hair that day and typically go back to work within a few days.
