In this, local anesthesia is given to the patient and a strip of skin from the back and sides of the scalp is removed including hair and hair follicles. This process takes 6-8 hours and at the same time 8-10 doctor’s work in this operation. The patient can go home the same day and start his work from the next day. This method works mostly in most cases due to this convenience.
