    How Does The Procedure Work

    All hair transplant techniques follow a similar series of events that includes 7 basic steps.

    Starting with drawing the hairline, shaving, anesthesia, extraction, sorting, opening channels, and implantation.

    Hairline Design

    All hair transplants begin with hairline design during which nurses will ask you to change into a gown.

    Your doctor will then use a marking pen with an alcohol-based ink to draw the borders of the hairline.

    Once you approve of the drawn-on hairline, the procedure begins.


    Shaving is not necessary in every hair transplant procedure, it depends on the technique you opt for.

    But in FUT the surgeon will shave the entire donor strip to prepare it for surgical extraction.

    In FUE or variants of this technique such as sapphire FUE and DHI Choi FUE, shaving is not always necessary.

    Your surgeon will determine this upon clinical scanning. But, it is better to shave the site of the donor region to reduce the risk of infection.

    Injecting Local Anesthetic

    Hair transplants happen under local anesthesia. Your surgeon will inject the anesthetic on both the donor region and the recipient site. In other words, on the operation sites.

    Graft Extraction

    This phase is about extracting the hair from its initial location. Likewise, the process differs between the techniques.

    Every technique has its own method of graft extraction. For instance, in some, it could be very invasive. Whereas in others it’s more convenient and has fewer scars.

    Preserving Follicular Units

    Hair Transplant Grafts
    After extracting the hairs it is important to store them in the right conditions until using them later.

    Such an environment is Hypothermosol solution.

    At the Vera Clinic, and in other accomplished hospitals, sorting of grafts is necessary. Surgeons separate the grafts depending on the number of grafts they contain.

    For instance, grafts with 1-2 to hairs are more suitable for the hairline. Whereas grafts with more hair are more suitable for the crown.

    It is small details like this that ensures a natural finish.

    Opening Channels

    Your surgeon will make very tiny holes on your scalp using micro scalpels.

    These wounds will then host the extracted grafts. Opening channels varies between the techniques.

    Implanting Follicular Units

    Your surgeon will implant the grafts in the channels on your scalp. Likewise, the technique of implantation varies between the techniques.
