What is Hair Transplantation?
A hair transplant is a procedure in which a surgeon moves a patch of hair containing hair follicles to a bald area of a patient’s head. The surgeon typically moves hair from a donor area on the side or back of the head to the top or front of the head. Hair transplants are usually performed in a medical office using local anesthesia.
Causes of Hair Loss
Pattern baldness is to blame for most hair loss. This is usually rooted in your heredity and genetics. Other cases of hair loss are caused by a variety of factors, including:
- Hormonal imbalance
- Traumatic injuries such as those sustained in a car accident that damage or burn the scalp
Who Would Benefit from a Hair Transplant?

To obtain follicles for transplantation, hair replacement surgeons use one of two options: FUT and FUE.
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)
In this procedure, a surgeon applies a local anesthetic, then uses a scalpel to cut out a follicle-rich strip of the scalp skin from the back or side of the head. These incisions are typically several inches long. After removal, the area is closed with stitches. The surgeon then separates the strip of donor scalp into small sections to be implanted in the balding areas. Once implanted, these will help achieve natural-looking hair growth. During a single session for hair loss restoration in Beverly Hills, California, a surgeon may transplant hundreds or even thousands of hair follicles. After the grafts are in place, gauze or bandages are applied to cover the scalp for a few days.
A hair transplant session can take about four to six hours. Stitches are typically removed about 10 days after surgery. Hair transplant recipients may require up to three or four restorative sessions to achieve a full head of hair. Sessions are usually scheduled several months apart to allow each grafted transplant to heal fully.
After the Transplant
After your session for hair loss restoration in Beverly Hills, California, the scalp may be sore, and the patient may need to take specific medications, including:
- Pain relievers
- Antibiotics (to reduce any risk of infection)
- Anti-inflammatory medications (to keep swelling down)
Most patients can return to normal activity several days after surgery.
Hair may fall out two to three weeks after the procedure. This is normal, as it makes way for new hair to grow. Patients typically see new hair growth 8 to 12 months after surgery.
