Hair transplant surgery is a popular way for people to get permanent hair regrowth in areas of the scalp that hasn’t grown hair on its own for a while. While there are a lot of treatments available for people suffering from hair loss, hair transplant surgery is in a category of its own.
A lot of hair loss treatments help you control future hair loss. Some treatments may even help strengthen your hair follicles so you experience less hair falling out and even some new hair growth. Unlike other treatments, hair transplant surgery offers long-term, natural hair growth. Once you get the procedure done, the newly transplanted hair will grow indefinitely. There is no need for additional treatments or surgery once you are happy with the results.
Is it Safe?
Hair transplant surgery is one of the safest surgical procedures available. It involves taking donor hair from your own scalp and transplanting them into areas of your head where you desire a fuller hairline. Donor sites are usually the back or sides of the head where hair growth is sufficient. Because the transplanted hair is your own, you don’t have to worry about your scalp rejecting the donor hair or the surgery being ineffective.
Additionally, hair transplant surgery is not as intense as you may think. While you will certainly not feel anything during the procedure because of numbing agents applied to the scalp, you will be awake for the entire procedure. You can enjoy watching tv, listening to music, and speaking with your surgeon and nurses. One form of hair transplant surgery requires removing a thin line of skin containing hair grafts from the donor site. This area is stitched up after removal. Another form of hair transplant surgery doesn’t even require stitches at the donor site, making it even less complicated in terms of recovery.
After your surgery, you can return home the same day. There is no need for a hospital stay. Your surgeon will prescribe you antibiotics to reduce the risk of infections. All you have to do is go home and rest. Your surgeon will give you instructions on how to care for your scalp following surgery. You will be instructed not to wash your head for a few days and to use a special shampoo for the first few weeks. After your scalp heals, you can resume your normal activities and shampoo and style your hair as you please.
Recovery from hair transplant surgery is typically a couple of weeks. Immediately following surgery, you may experience some pain and soreness on the scalp. After a few days, this will go away. You can even return to work a few days after surgery, depending on your surgeon’s recommendations. Within a few months, your new hair will grow out, which you can style and enjoy as you like.
