Although successful hair transplants can have some side effects, a qualified surgeon should be aware of possible complications and techniques for prevention and treatment. Hair transplantation is usually done with local anaesthesia and sedation, meaning the patient will be awake but won't feel any pain.
We looked at the leading causes of hair loss in women, the emotional impact it can have, and why research on new treatments for hair loss in women seems to be behind schedule. Hair transplantation is a cosmetic surgery, so any complication can seriously affect the patient's aesthetic and psychological outcome and may have medico-legal implications. Hair replacement surgery has come a long way since the days when men were left with large locks of hair that screamed transplant. Hair transplantation is a relatively new and continuously evolving art, which has undergone several advances, paving the way for more natural patient results.
If you are considering undergoing a hair transplant, consult with a professional. The surgeon must plan the transplant design to ensure that the hair looks natural over time. It can also cause patient dissatisfaction over time, especially with progressive hair loss behind the transplanted hairline. However, a study found that most people who underwent FUE with body or beard hair combined with scalp hair were satisfied with the results.
Findings from another study suggest that using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy with FUE increases the success of FUE hair transplants. Hair on the back and sides of the head usually grows over a lifetime, so you don't have to worry about losing it after the transplant. However, they may continue to experience thinning and hair loss after the procedure, which can give the hair an unnatural or irregular appearance. There are several techniques available, but all hair transplants involve removing hairy skin from a part of the scalp and grafting these pieces of skin to bald or thin areas of the scalp or sites of trauma. Each treatment session can last from two to eight hours, depending on the number of hairs being transplanted.
Overall, hair transplant surgery is typically safe when performed by an experienced surgeon. However, it is important to be aware of potential risks and complications before undergoing any type of surgery. It is also important to consult with a professional to ensure that your hair looks natural over time.
