How does a hair replacement surgery work and what are the different types of procedures?

  • Various techniques are available for use in a hair replacement surgery. Often two or more techniques are combined in one surgery to achieve the optimum results.
  • Patients who wish for a modest change in hair fullness can undergo a surgery using any of the different hair grafting techniques while tissue-expansion along with flaps and scalp-reduction are the other techniques suitable for patients who need a more dramatic change.

Different techniques of Hair Grafts:

In a hair grafting technique, small pieces of hair-bearing scalp grafts from a donor site are relocated to a bald or thinning area. There are different graft techniques based on the size and shape of the grafts.


  • Punch-graft: Round-shaped grafts containing around 10-15 hairs are called punch-grafts.
  • Mini-grafts & Micro-grafts: Smaller than the punch-grafts are the mini-grafts and micro-grafts with 2-4 hairs in the former and 1-2 hairs in the latter.
  • Slit-grafts: In slit-grafts, grafts are inserted into slits created in the scalp with about 4-10 hairs each.
  • Strip-grafts: Strip grafts are long and thin strips than contact 30-40 hairs each.
