In a properly performed follicular unit transplant, the result will mimic the way hair grows in nature and will be undetectable as a hair transplant . Hair Transplant is considered a minor surgery, which usually takes  6 -12 hours.

Some patients require only one session  but other individuals with  progressive and severe pattern of  hair loss might  require more  than one session . In  addition since  donor supply is limited ,  especially in young patients, proper  scalp assessment and   careful  planning  are important to reach the beneficial aesthetic result.

Patient will be under local anesthesia and mild oral  sedation. At the end of the procedure, a light dressing will be applied accompanied with a clean  surgical cap or bandana or patient’s  preferred cap to protect the grafts from harm.
