Hair Transplants


 Hair transplantation is a cosmetic procedure used to treat baldness or hair loss (alopecia). Typically, tiny patches of scalp are removed from the back and sides of the head and implanted in the bald spots in the front and top of the head.In hair transplantation we use local anesthesia, which, as the name implies, locally deadens (temporarily) the nerves, rather than the whole central nervous system (unconsciousness).

Hair transplant surgery lasts two to three hours during which approximately 250 grafts will be transplanted. The areas involved in transplantation may need to be bandaged overnight. People can return to normal activities within a day. Strenuous activities should be avoided in the first few days after the cosmetic surgery.

On rare occasions, the implants can be ejected from the scalp during vigorous exercise. There may be some swelling, bruising, headache, and discomfort around the graft areas and around the eyes. These symptoms can usually be controlled with a mild pain reliever such as aspirin. Scabs may form at the graft sites and should not be scraped off. There may be some numbness at the sites, but it will diminish within two to three months.

The transplanted hair will fall out within a few weeks; however, new hair will start to grow in the graft sites within about three months..
