Hair Transplant Side effect
Hair transplants are very safe procedures with few side effects. The common side effects are swelling, minor discomfort, numbness, itching, and local inflammation. However, they are not severe and are temporary. Very rarely a patient may experience shock loss, but this is temporary and the hair will grow back in 3-6 months. Bad design of your new hairline may be a risk factor, but this is easily avoidable with an experienced surgeon, supporting staff, and good communication with your surgeon.
NeoGraft, hair loss is not a side effect, but is a natural part of process for the success of the hair transplant
With NeoGraft, hair loss is not a side effect, but instead is a natural and needed phenomenon for the success of the hair transplantation. Once the hair follicle has been implanted to the desired area, the grafted hair will remain for a few weeks and then shed. Not all the grafted hair will shed but many will. The new hair growth will begin in approximately 4-6 months and continue to grow normally thereafter. Full results may take up to a year. As the new hair grows in, the results will look natural, healthy, and strong.
Sides effects of #hairtransplant
With any surgery there are risks Invovled, however these risks can be minimized if hair transplant is done by an experienced hAir restoration surgeon. The risks may include scarring, pluggy look, redness, shock loss and ingrown hair.
Very minimal side effects if properly done
Although a lot of people worry about the "shock loss" of the existing hair after hair transplant this is an extremaly rare occurence if things are properly done. First of all we only do FUE procedures to avoid ugly linear scar in the back of the head. Also recent advances in the robotic surgery added ability to perform sites with the robot to avoid injury to existing hair. This is much more precise than human eye
Side effect of hair transplant
Side effect of a hair transplant surgery can be a "pluggy" look. This is a technical complication from unskilled doctors and technicians. You can also have bad scarring both on the donor and recipient area.
Fortunately if the results are great, the transplanted hairs do not fall out.
Unfortunately if it is a bad result, the transplanted hairs also do not fall out.
Strip method side effect is a linear scar across the back of the head. With ALL methods, shock loss is possible. Trauma from the tissues can cause follicles to fall asleep in small patches. Usually this is temporary and the follicles will awaken in a few weeks to months. Rarely is this permanent. Infections are very rare. "Poor take" of follicles can occur, and this may be technical, genetic, or combination of both. Fortunately, this is rare too.
Side Effects for NeoGraft
Like with any hair transplant procedure, “shock
loss” is the most common side effect, but it is not permanent. This is due to the stress exhibited to
the transplanted area in addition to swelling. It is also to be expected
for the grafted hairs to fall out anytime between the first few weeks up
till 3-4 months post procedure. The seed of the transplanted follicle will
stay intact and in a matter of time the follicle to regenerate a new
hair. Patience is key.
Telogen Effluvium + Folliculitis
Occasionally, non-transplanted hairs in telogen (or the 'resting' phase of the hair growth cycle) will fall out after hair transplantation. The risk of telogen effluvium is greater in large procedures.
Another side effects unique to hair transplantation besides the normal side effects with any skin surgery (swelling, redness, risk of infection, etc) is the possibility of developing a folliculitis or an 'ingrown' hair 2-3 months after the procedure. This occurs when the new transplanted hairs grow out of the follicle.
Side effects of Hair Transplant
Possible side effects directly following hair transplant surgery include bleeding, swelling, and some discomfort. Real hair could temporarily fall out if the grafts are packed too close and blood supply is compromised.
Hair Transplant Side Effects
As far as complications they are relativley low....infection and bleeding are minimal. There can be a visible scar at the donor site if the procedure is not done well. 95% of grafts should successfully take and grow.
