Shaving the donor area

The capillary graft in the hairline is performed with the technique DHI and it is not necessary to shave the entire head, only a small area at the nape of the neck where the follicular units necessary to redensify the hairline will be extracted.

It is essential to proceed with the shaving since the hair must be with an approximate length of 1 or 2 millimeters para on extracción.

Application of local anesthesia

After shaving, the patient enters our operating rooms and the medical team provides anesthesia. The use of general anesthesia is not necessary, since it is a minimally invasive intervention, only local anesthesia is used.

This phase is the only one that causes some pain in patients. For this reason, in Hospital Capilar, hair transplant clinic in Spain, we have the pre-anesthesia through which we manage to considerably reduce the pain of the application of the anesthesia itself.

Follicle Extraction

Once the area is asleep, the health team proceeds to extract the follicular units estimated by the doctors. This is done individually with a punch with micromotor, which leaves no visible scars and prevents possible damage to the hair follicle.

As the follicular units are extracted, they are placed in Petri dishes for better preservation.

Implantation of follicles in the hairline

The last step with which the hairline graft surgery is concluded is the implantation of those extracted follicles. Once this step is finished, the patient can return normally to her home following the postoperative rules provided by the medical team.

The results of this intervention are natural, since leaves no visible scars, and are definitely given a year after the hair transplant. However, 6 months after surgery the first changes can be seen.
