Before the hair transplant surgery, the patient is given anesthesia so that he does not feel any pain in the entire process. After this, the strip of hair is removed from the back of the scalp (donor area). After the strip is removed, it leaves a linear scar on the scalp. Then the hairs follicles are removed from the strip and they are divided into grafts. The follicular units contain nerves, vellus hairs, a tiny muscle, and sebaceous glands.

Once this is done, the grafts are transplanted where the hair growth is very less and it is referred to as recipient area. In the end, a bandage is applied around the treated area.
