Hair transplant surgery involves taking your own donor hair. Thus you will not have to take immunosuppressive medications.

Since it is your own tissue/hair being moved

You do not need to take any long term medication to suppress your immune system. This is very similar to a skin graft that would be done by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon.

Hair transplants

When you move hair from one part of your scalp to another, it is your hair and you need not take any medications once the surgery is done.
