Q. Does hair transplant have any side effects?
Ans: Well, hair transplant surgical procedure is a fairly easy procedure. There are only some minor complications that can occur after the procedure. They can be like bleeding, infection, itching, swelling of the scalp, temporary thinning of hair, etc. If you pick or scratch the scabs, they can cause infections and endanger the survival of the grafts. Usually, these minor complications can be cleared up within a few weeks.
Q. Is hair transplantation a safe and permanent solution for baldness?
Ans: Yes, hair transplant is a safe procedure as there are no complicated side effects and it is definitely the only permanent solution for baldness. We consider that hair transplantation as a permanent solution because in any surgical procedure whether it is FUT or FUE, hair grafts are taken from the sides or back of the head which is resistant to DHT hormone (the main cause of hair loss) and harvested in the baldness area.
Q. Can hair transplant be done for females?
Ans: Hair transplantation is one of the popular cosmetic procedures mostly undergone by men. However, these cosmetic procedures becoming trendy in females as well. Generally, the percentage of women is less for hair transplant surgery. However, women who suffer hair loss due to trauma, chemical burns, a distinct pattern of baldness which includes hairline recession, vertex thinning, etc. are now successfully treated in women.
Q. Is any special care required after a hair transplant?
Ans: Although hair transplantation has a speedy recovery, there are a few things you need to care for a while. Post-transplantation care is very simple and easy. You need to follow the time to time medications prescribed by doctors to avoid infections, manage to swell, etc. It is most recommended that you should not consume alcohol for a week to 10 days post-procedure. Stay away from chlorine contaminated water. You should avoid the direct fall of sunlight in the transplant area for 14 days following your procedure.
Q. How much time does it really take to see the transplantation results?
Ans: As your head will be shaved for the procedure, you’ll probably see your normal hair growth only after a few months in the transplanted area. You’ll get to notice the results of your transplanted hair transplant post three months of your treatment procedure. The transplanted hair grafts fall off and regrow naturally and the results become very noticeable within six months and you’ll see full results at 12 months. So, within a year, you can expect a natural growing hair.
