There are two main types of hair transplant surgeries; Strip harvesting and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), in the former method, a strip of hair is removed from the area where hair growth is good. This strip of hair is then dissected into smaller units and these are then planted on the bald patch. The area from where the strip is removed, is stapled back together using surgical stainless steel staples. This wound may take a few days to heal and may leave a mark. The FUE hair transplant method involves extraction of individual hair follicles that are then planted on to the bald patch. In this method, there are very small incisions made and those do not leave behind a significant mark and heal quite easily. Other than this, the recipient might feel a bit of headache or redness in the area which is also temporary and might subside in a few days.

In very occasional cases, the bleeding does not stop so it might be necessary for the surgeon to do some extra stitching to close the wounds. Similarly, in rare cases, itching occurs on affected areas due to hair transplant surgery.

Almost everybody who undergoes hair transplant surgery has experienced swelling in the forehead and around the eyes. This lasts for only a few days while the fourth day is usually the worst in terms of appearance. Some individuals may get a black eye due to the swelling on the forehead.
