We want your experience on your procedure day to be as comfortable and relaxed as possible. Upon arrival, you will be escorted to a private treatment room where you will meet with Dr. LeBeau to review the plan for your procedure. He will explain exactly what will happen during the procedure day. You will be given a light sedative to relax you. Because of this you will need a ride home from your procedure. Dr. LeBeau administers a local anesthetic with a tiny syringe on your scalp to minimize any discomfort associated with the procedure. Your scalp will be completely numb during the entire procedure; there will be no pain at any point during the procedure. The grafts are then surgically removed from the donor area at the back of your head and transplanted to the chosen sites. Most patients report experiencing minimal, if any discomfort during the procedure. Many patients nap for much of the time the procedure is taking place. You will be given breaks periodically during the procedure and can continue napping, watch a movie or listen to music.
