Hair transplantation, otherwise referred to as grafting, is a surgical procedure that involves removing hair follicles from one part of the body called the donor site, to mitigate the effects of balding on another body part. To be specific, this type of procedure is classified as a minimally invasive procedure where grafts containing hair follicles that are resistant to balding are transferred to the scalp. The process usually starts with a consultation whereby the surgeon evaluates the candidate and underscores their preferences for the procedure. For several days, before the surgery, the doctor might recommend that the patient refrains from intensive medications that might hamper the results of the grafting procedure. Besides that, smoking and alcohol can also reduce the effectiveness of the surgery. (source)
