Hair loss is a significant problem that can negatively affect unhappiness and self-confidence in both men and women. If the cause of hair loss isn’t known in the early stages and the necessary precautions aren’t taken immediately, it may result in baldness. On the other hand, a hair transplant is a very successful procedure preferred for people who have had baldness problems for about 20-25 years around the world. A hair transplant is a surgical procedure.

One of the most frequently asked questions about hair transplant, which creates significant differences in your appearance, is the question of whether hair transplantation is painful. A hair transplant is done standing up and generally takes 5-6 hours. Although this procedure is very safe, it is still a surgical procedure so some side effects can be expected as a result. Before the process takes place, you will be given a local anaesthetic and will only feel mild needle pain. The anaesthetic will numb your skin for a short time, and you will not feel anything during the procedure.

So What Will Happen?

You may experience redness, mild pain, and tenderness in the treated areas for only a few days in the healing process. For this, our surgeon may recommend that you take medication to alleviate the side effects after a hair transplant. However, all these processes are generally light enough to take a few days at most. Following the post-transplant instructions in the first few weeks of recovery will help minimize possible symptoms in the days following the procedure.

In summary, you will not feel too much pain due to applying anaesthetic agents.

Is There Any Pain After Hair Transplant?

After you get through the first night after the hair transplant procedure, you will be greatly relieved. While it is essential to protect your head, you will do most of your daily activities. Despite this information, some pain after a hair transplant is also one of the everyday situations. Pain after the hair transplant can last up to several days in some cases. Although you use analgesic drugs, in some cases, this pain can become severe. However, uncomfortable conditions such as numbness, tingling, and itching may also develop.

Although the hair transplant procedure is a mildly painful process that can be painless most of the time, it is normal to have pain in your donor or recipient areas and the entire head after the procedure.

In general, your pain will disappear completely within 1 to 4 days after a Turkish hair transplant. You will not have any complaints in one week.

Painless Hair Transplant

You will not experience pain during the hair transplant procedure performed under anaesthetic agents, and our surgeons will recommend painkillers in case of pain after the procedure. Also, our surgeon may recommend antibiotics against your risk of experiencing a possible infection and some medications to make you more comfortable according to your needs.

It is pretty natural for you to experience minor pains after the hair transplant procedure, as it will not be possible for a living organism to react to an incision that may disrupt your body’s integrity. In conclusion, the hair transplant procedure is a surgical procedure. However, thanks to painless anaesthetic procedures and hair transplant techniques with micro-incisions such as FUE hair transplant, the possibility of experiencing pain in your hair transplant process will be minimized.
