How long do hair transplants take?
A common question we receive is: how long does a hair transplant take?
A hair transplant usually takes about 4 to 6 hours, sometimes longer depending on the number of grafts you're receiving.
On operation day, you’ll typically arrive right when the office opens to begin some brief pre-op paperwork. You’ll then settle in and begin the numbing process. The procedure starts shortly thereafter and lasts throughout the morning and into the early afternoon.
Bigger surgeries that move lots of follicles/grafts obviously take a bit longer than smaller surgeries. Some of the biggest surgeries involving the highest possible number of grafts may be split into multiple days, however this is not the norm.
Also, keep in mind that during the surgery we build in time for meals, snacks, and breaks for both yourself and the surgeon.
