The procedure is pain-free to a degree. In fact, patients can listen to music, or watch a movie, and even fall asleep during the operation. However, there is a tolerable presence of a minor pain during the anesthetic injection. 

For those patients who do not prefer needles, there is a needle-free option with a sedative chemical applied to the scalp via high pressured air. You will absolutely feel nothing through this option. The entire procedure is explained in detail in FUE Hair Transplant Section. There, you can find all the information on hair transplant.
