Things That You Need to Know About a Hair Transplant

A hair transplant is a surgery that permanently restores hair by removing a narrow strip of hair-bearing scalp. The strip is taken from a part of your head that contains a dense hair growth. It is used to fill a section with thin or no hair. The majority of hair transplants are conducted in the doctor’s office under local anaesthesia.

During the transplant process, the primary step the doctor takes is to clean the scalp section, and then injects an anaesthetic in order to numb the section where a small section of the strip of scalp will be removed. After removing the strip of scalp by the use of a scalpel, it will be set aside, and the scalp will be closed and immediately hidden by the hair around it.

For the next step, the section of the removed hair-bearing scalp will be divided by the doctor into tiny grafts containing only an individual hair or a few amounts of hair follicles each. The amount and type of graft used depends on the hair type, color, size, and quality of the section where it will be transplanted.

Before and After the Day of Surgery

You may bring your favourite book or magazine to read, or just select from our own reading facilities. If you want to watch television, feel free to bring your preferred DVD, or simply enjoy a light nap – the decision is completely up to you.

After the procedure, an appointment is suggested within ten days to remove sutures and to check the status of the scalp. This can be provided free of charge.

Our Expectation / Recovery

After undergoing hair transplant surgery, you will have a very tender scalp. Over-the-counter pain relief medication is recommended to address this. Recovery to the point of returning back to your daily routines and activities typically takes between 2 to 5 days after surgery. In a span of 2 to 3 weeks after the hair transplant, the transplanted hair will slowly fall out – but you will slowly notice new hair growth within a few months and usually will attain 60 percent of new hair growth after 6 to 9 months.
