I'm wondering what happens to the donor area and if there's a bald patch there and for how long.

I don't think that I'd need many grafts because my hairline's not too high, I'm talking about a max. of only 1cm, and my hair is very thick all over naturally. Anyway, I'm wondering what happens to the donor area and if there's a bald patch there and for how long. And is it true that the hair in the area that's being treated all falls out and then grows back? And does the hair then grow back at the same rate as hair on other areas of the head or is the growth stunted because of trauma?

Needing to do fewer grafts, that's always good news. Regarding the donor area, it gets sutured closed which will leave a fine line scar. You can view examples of these on my website. As for the area being treated, very few of your own original hairs fall out after the procedure. The hairs that have been transplanted will have little crusts for about one week before falling out two weeks later and ultimately regrowing within 2 to 3 months later. Because the hair loss involves only those hairs which have been transplanted and not your original hair, during the period before regrowth you will look just like you did before the procedure and can wear you hair however you desire.
