Transfer hair: To transplant hair, follicles are taken from the occipital area where the hair is dense. Next, the follicles are placed in an opening creating by a needle in the from on the scalp. One or more micrografts of hair are placed in this fashion and are left to grow.

Depends: It depends on who you ask. You need to talk to other people who have had it done. Call prospective centers, and ask to talk to patients.
Also, ask your family doctor, or a local plastic surgeon who does not do hair transplants.
