Administration of anesthesia: The first step of the procedure is administering anesthesia and the choice depends on the technique selected. Traditional or FUT hair transplant involves use of general anesthesia while FUE and other advanced techniques are done under local anesthesia.
Harvesting hair follicles: The next step is extraction of hair follicles. In FUT, strip of scalp bearing hair follicles is removed from back of the head making a linear incision, which is then cut into groups of 1 to 4 hair follicles for grafting. In FUE, however, individual hair follicles are extracted using small punch tool. In stem cell FUE or automated FUE, follicles are extracted using an automatic device that makes procedure quick in comparison with removing them manually.
Follicular transplantation: The last step of hair restoration surgery that is implantation of extracted hair follicles is same for every technique. Small incisions are made in the bald area using specific tiny needles. The harvested follicular grafts are then inserted in these incisions.
