What are the possible side effects and complications of a hair transplant surgery?

Perhaps you have decided to get a hair transplant and feel ready for it. Hair loss that develops into baldness has no ultimate solution than a hair transplant surgery. Most patients have to deal with shame and lessened self image because of a lesser density or completely a bald region from the parietal frontal to the crown region.

At last, you have secured some money and warming up for that knife. That is an awesome achievement for some patients. So, let’s have a look at some of the side effects you might experience after a hair transplant surgery.

It should be noted that side effects are normal to a certain level and every patient will have to deal with them after the procedure. Here they are

  1. Bleeding

Bleeding occurs in any type of hair transplant procedure, but the surgeon will limit it. After the procedure, it will also occur in the donor area, especially after a Follicular hair transplant. The area where the strip is removed is at the end stitched, but you will experience bleeding. With the FUE, there will be a slight bleeding.

  • Your preoperative tips will help you prevent this

  • Gauze is used to control bleeding

  1. Shedding of the hair

Hair shafts must fall off after the hair transplant procedure is performed. This is completely normal and part of the hair cycle that has to grow again. This happens in the first 3 weeks and after that, one must wait for the new hair to grow.

  1. Swelling

Swelling is another normal side effect, though the location of swelling differs in patients. Some get the swellings around the eyes while others on the forehead.

This will last for a few days and completely normal after a hair transplant in India.

  1. Pain

It differs with the difference in the technique and mostly FUT patients will report pain.

Painkillers like Panado, paracetamol can be taken to relieve you from pain.

  1. Infection

It can be equaled to a complication since it will require effective treatment and care. Infections are rare in good clinics like VJ’s cosmetology and hair transplantation centre simply because the procedure is performed in a hygienic environment with sterilized equipment.

  • However, antibiotics must be taken as prescribed to avoid them and good care must be taken to protect the scalp

  1. Scarring

Scarring occurs in every procedure, but the skills of a surgeon can reduce the visibility of the scar/s. With the FUE technique, dot like scars will be left behind, whereas with the FUT, a linear scar must be expected.

  • Different treatments can help you reduce the scars

  1. Cysts

Cysts are rare in patients. They mostly occur in case there are grafts that were not completely removed from the scalp. They disappear after 1 or 2 weeks

  • See a doctor if they persist

Side effects and complications are commonly witnessed in patients. Select a good hair transplant clinic with a well-trained surgeon to perform the surgery. Keep in touch with him or her to share ideas or information about your hair progress.

Be well prepared before a hair transplant procedure.
