Hair transplantation is the main surgery for hair loss, which involves removing a narrow strip of hair-bearing scalp from the back of the head and using it to fill an area with thin or no hair. Most hair transplants are performed in the doctor's office under local anesthesia. To transplant hair, the surgeon first cleans the scalp, then injects an anesthetic to numb the area where a 3- to 4-inch strip of scalp will be removed. After removing the strip of scalp with a scalpel, the surgeon sets it aside and sews the scalp closed. This area is immediately hidden by the hair around it.

No this is not correct as when they are going to undergo a brain surgery they have to be bald, but all grow their hair after the surgery.

Hair transplant surgery is in fact a permanent solution to hair loss. The procedures that are most commonly used include hair replacement, taking hair from other parts of the body where is is more plentiful.
