The ‘New’ should always need extra care. The same applies to transplanted hair as well.
Hi, I am Dr. Aseema Pati, Hair transplant surgeon and I am back with another most important query on hair transplant – What are the complications with a hair transplant? For those who are watching this video for the first time, welcome to our family and check out our previous videos that solve every uncertainty in you with regards to hair transplantation.
Hair transplant is the most common and less complicated aesthetic surgical procedure nowadays. But there are a variety of possible problems that can be less severe and manageable.
At the time of surgery:
Adverse reaction to anesthesia
Swelling or bruising on the lower eyelids
Bleeding while extracting grafts and after stitches in the donor area.
Mild discomfort or pain
After the surgery:
Numbness or lack of sensation on the treated areas
Infection or inflammation of hair follicles
Postoperative itching is common in the donor and recipient area
Hiccups or cough
Some mild swelling may occur in some patients for a couple of days after the transplant
A tight feeling in the scalp
Each patient should be isolated, planned, and operated on with the goal of minimizing complications and complaints. Proper care and medication should be taken by the patient to grab the best results such as –
Antibiotics to reduce the risk of infection
Anti-inflammatory medications to keep swelling down
Avoid exercise and arduous activity that increases blood pressure
