The most common side effects of hair transplantation are not really serious and can be avoided, however, there are some cases when side effects are serious. These may include loss of hair, infection, and scarring. This article will discuss those rare cases where side effects can cause major damage.
Acne is probably the number one side effect of hair transplantation. Acne is a mild skin lesion that usually happens after the hair graft surgery. The micro micromotor device forces the natural roots underneath the surface during the harvesting stage. The root removal process is usually done by a dermatologist, and each dermatologist can perform this process on his own or can recommend a specialist for hair transplantation.
A few hairs on the scalp are always susceptible to infection. These infections usually clear on their own in a couple of weeks. But, if they are left untreated, the infection can grow and spread to the other areas of your body such as your face.
Another side effect of hair surgery is scarring. The scars from the surgery may vary in color and size depending on the individual. The scars will heal naturally without the need for medical assistance, however, there are some people who choose to leave the scars and their hair intact.
Hair transplants are performed by specialized doctors with years of experience in performing such surgeries. The doctor will carefully examine the patient to find out his medical history. He will also do an oral exam to test the ability of the patient to take anesthesia. After doing all these tests and examinations, the doctor will make the final decision whether to perform the procedure or not.
Hair restoration can actually cause damage to the existing hair, which is especially true for women who are not using proper products or hair care products that can help prevent the damage from being permanent. Since these products can help reduce the appearance of damage caused by hair grafting, women are encouraged to use these products if they have hair loss. After a hair restoration procedure, the patients should keep in mind the risk of damaging the existing hair as well as the possibility of future hair loss due to the procedure itself.
Hair loss is very common in both men and women, however, it is less common in men because there are natural hair growth cycles in men that help fight baldness.
Side effects of hair transplants are unavoidable and there is no such thing as a guaranteed method to stop them, however, the chances of these effects occurring are minimized with proper preparation.
For some people, the loss of hair after a hair transplant is not as pronounced as the hair loss seen in patients after other hair restoration procedures. Other than the fact that the hair does not grow back quickly, the side effects of hair transplantation may be temporary in nature. A new hair will grow in if the follicle did not completely die out.
Side effects of this procedure can also affect the color of the hair that grows back after the procedure. If you already have dark or gray hair, the side effects of this treatment will probably lessen in severity as your hair re-grows. Other side effects may also include swelling of the skin at the site where the graft is located, redness, infection, and itching. A small area of baldness may even be present, however, if the surgery was successful, there may be a slight reduction in the amount of hair loss as well as a few new growths.
Hair loss can occur for various reasons, and if you are concerned about the side effects of hair transplantation, it would be best to consult your doctor and let him or her evaluate the situation before proceeding with any treatment.
