Any treatment, especially the invasive ones, can bring anxiety to anyone who does not know what to expect during the procedure. Even a simple procedure such as a hair transplant can be quite nerve-wrecking when you do not know will happen on the day of your appointment. You do not have to be one of the people who back away from a promising treatment just because of uncertainty.
What Happens on the Day of Your Hair Transplant
- Dr. Totonchi will remove a strip of your scalp that contains healthy-growing hair. Once the strip is removed, the area is then carefully sutured close.
- This strip of scalp will then be prepped by highly skilled technicians for further use.
- After preparing the strip, it is then divided into sections of tissue, which will be transplanted into areas in your scalp that are balding or have thinning hair. Each sliver of scalp usually contains about one to three hair follicles.
More Important Facts About Hair Transplant
Although a hair transplant is an invasive procedure, Dr. Totonchi’s patients are only given local anesthesia throughout the process. The procedure usually lasts from 5 to 10 hours, depending on the extent of the surgery as well as the patient’s condition. Many of Dr. Totonchi’s patients only require a single hair transplant session, yet other cases still require follow-up treatments. When this is so, the next session is usually scheduled 6 to 12 months following the initial treatment.
