Side Effects of Hair Transplant


It is normal that there are some fears about the side effects of hair transplant among people who want to have hair transplant. The hair transplant is a very safe process when it is carried out by experts in a reliable center. However, there are some rules that must be followed to ensure the safe transplant. 


What is Hair Transplant?

Hair transplant is the transfer of hair follicles taken from one's own body to balding areas. Hair transplant can be done with different techniques. FUE technique, sapphire FUE technique and DHI hair transplant are the most preferred hair transplant methods. Even if the methods are different, the stages of hair transplant are almost the same.


Hair Transplant Steps;

Step 1 Before Hair Transplant: Before hair transplant, various tests are performed to determine whether the patient is suitable for the operation. If the patient is suitable for hair transplant, the analysis and planning phase is started. At this stage, the patient's hair structure and degree of shedding are analyzed. It is decided how much grafts will be transplanted to the donor site and to the patient. Front hairline design is made if necessary. The patient is prepared for operation.

Step 2 Hair Transplant Operation: The required number of hair follicles is collected from the donor area. Small canals are opened to hold these hair follicles to the balding areas. The hair follicles collected in these canals are transferred with special tools.

Step 3 After Hair Transplant: There is no need to stay in the hospital after the operation. The patient can return to his daily life. The first wash is done 3 days after the procedure. The first wash must be carried out very carefully. Therefore, the first wash is done in the hair transplant center. Redness, itching and scabbing are normal after hair transplant. These problems are greatly reduced after the first wash and go away over time.

After the hair transplant, the hair should be used very carefully until it gets used to the new place and is firmly attached. The head should not be hit and heavy sports should be avoided. Care should be taken not to contact the head when wearing or removing clothing. While sleeping, the head should not be rubbed against the pillow and should be placed as vertically as possible.


Hair transplant should be done only in hospitals and polyclinics.

Hair transplant should be done to those whose hair loss level is not certain. People who are not yet certain of how much hair will be shed may have to have hair transplanted again in the future.

The FUT technique may leave a scar on the incision in the hair, even if it is no longer done. In FUE operation, the probability of scarring is very low.

When hair transplant is performed in reliable centers, no serious side effects are encountered. However, after planting the hair in the area where the planting or hair is taken sensitivity, bruising, redness and small crusting may occur. These are extremely natural and temporary side effects.

The hair transplant is micro surgery. Even the smallest operations have a number of risks. However, the risks that may arise in hair transplant air transplant operation are considerably lower than other aesthetic operations. The risk of side effects is higher in transactions not performed by qualified personnel.

The most common side effects in hair transplant edema, bleeding, itching, crusting and acne. Common side effects; inflammation of the hair follicle, circumferential hair loss, numbness in the donor area, hair roots extending in the wrong direction and the emergence of sown roots. Rare side effects; infection, dermoid cyst, pigment deformation and necrosis.

 



Side Effects of Hair Transplant: Common Side Effects

Swelling: One of the most common side effects seen in hair transplant is swelling seen in a few days after the operation. The opening of many micro channels to the scalp and the body's reaction may trigger swelling. This swelling is not seen as a long-term side effect in hair transplant. Swelling lasts about 2-3 days. With a few simple precautions, the fog can be overcome lightly.

Bleeding: Bleeding occurring in the process is another side effect. Mild bleeding is normal in these areas after sowing. But if the intensity of bleeding increases, a doctor should be consulted. These mild bleeding usually heal a few days after the operation.

Itching: Itching and prickling sensation can be seen in the scalp in the first days of hair transplantation. Care should be taken not to touch these scratched areas. If itches, the newly transplanted hair roots may be damaged and cause infection. Methods such as washing and massage after hair transplantation help to end the itching in a shorter time.

Crusting: The crusting that occurs after planting occurs when the blood that joins the roots of the sheet begins to dry within a few days. It is part of hair transplantation. These shells should not be taken manually and should be expected to fall off.
