What is Hair Transplant?

Strip harvesting hair transplant is a method where a strip of hair is removed from the back of the scalp, and individual hair grafts are then implanted into the balding areas. There are three major steps; harvesting of the donor hair strip, dissecting the donor strip into individual hair grafts and inserting the hair grafts into the recipient sites in the balding areas.

During the strip removal from the donor site, no general anesthesia is used. Using local anesthetics, Los Angeles Hair Transplant Center numbs the area and meticulously removes a strip of skin containing hair follicles from the rear side of the scalp.

Using advanced stereoscopic microscopes, experienced surgical technicians then dissect each hair grafts into less than the 1-millimeter width. Yes, less than a 1-millimeter diameter! This method can be accomplished only with an experienced surgical staff and advanced microscopes. These ensure there is no transection of follicular units during the harvesting and dissecting process.

One of the most important aspects of a hair transplant Los Angeles is the recipient site creation.

Also, it is critical that the recipient sites are angled correctly so the implanted hairs look natural.

Los Angeles Hair Transplant Center uses special magnifying loupes and takes his time to make sure every angle and direction of each hair graft are appropriate.
