The procedure takes 3 to 6 hours, depending on the size of the area being transplanted. Following a brief rest period, you are ready to leave the office. Due to the mild sedative used during the procedure, please make arrangements for someone to bring you home. If the baldness is extensive, the front half is transplanted first and a second procedure for the back half (or crown) is performed 10 weeks later.
