Every surgical procedure needs adequate amount of care and attention. Hair transplant procedures are one of the safest and easiest cosmetic surgeries; however, all parts of the procedure should be approached delicately for the most desired results. The processes of before and after hair transplant are equally important as the procedure itself.
The consultation and pre-operation period
A good planning process for a hair transplant surgery is very essential for the safety and success of the operation; for that reason, an initial consultation should cover all the information on patient’s medical state, aesthetic expectations and physical examination of the hair loss area. Hair transplant procedures are offered in multiple techniques; though it is believed that the latest technique provides the best outcomes, this not always the case. Different techniques may be suitable for patients with different conditions; the required technique for the individual should be determined after a detailed consultation made under the supervision of the hair transplant specialist.
Hair transplant procedures are performed under local anesthesia to make the patients as comfortable as possible; it is significant to get all necessary blood tests done to make sure there will be no adverse reaction to anesthesia.
Although in a very minimal level, hair transplant surgery is invasive. This means the bleeding during and after the operation is quite normal; however, in order to keep it under control, your hair transplant specialist may recommend you to avoid any usage of blood thinners.
Things to be careful in the after-care process of the operation
Although different techniques of hair transplant require different aftercare processes, there certain points to be careful with after every technique.
As in all surgical procedures, some side effects are expected after a hair transplant operation. Bleeding, swelling, change on the skin sensation, numbness, pain and headache are some those side effects; they are mostly temporary, but then again, the right approach in the aftercare process is very significant for those side effect to not disrupt the long-term results.
The post-op instructions given by your hair transplant specialist should be followed very carefully. Smoking, consuming alcohol and sun exposure should be avoided in the early period of healing to prevent any complications.
Hair transplant final results are not visible right after the operation; it is a complex procedure which needs time and care to be effective.
A few weeks after the operation, the transplanted follicles may fall down. This is often considered as if the operation was not successful by the patients; but then again, it is a completely natural part of the process and it is called “shock loss”. The fallen hair will grow again later in the recovery process.
The final results of the hair transplant procedures may take 12-18 months to be visible. This time is necessary for new follicles to settle down in their new places. Not all parts of scalp give the final results at the same time; crown areas may take longer to achieve their final outcomes.
