Modern hair transplant surgery consists of transferring about 1500 grafts, which contain about 4 hairs. They are placed in the treated area of the head so they can naturally grow again. These follicles are taken from behind the patients head. A strip which measures 12 mm wide by 75mm in length is used for this procedure. The number of strips taken depends of the number of grafts required according to the surgeon. The scarring that the strip leaves is not noticeable, unless the person is subject to a closer examination.
The grafts that are created are placed on a petri dish, ready for the surgeon to transfer on to the bald area of the head. Only single hair micrografts are used to make the front hairline appear natural. However, the rest of the area is covered with minigrafts that contain four hairs.
