Is Hair Transplant Painful?

Is Hair Transplant Painful?

The extent of pain also depends on whether or not you are going to a skilled surgeon.

Is Hair Transplant Painful? - If you are suffering from hair thinning or baldness, you have probably already considered going for a hair transplant. Although hair transplant surgery can let you restore hair naturally and permanently on your head, you are possibly worried about whether transplantation is painful. The scalp happens to be quite a sensitive spot, and it can be scary to think about having cuts on it. Find out about the extent of pain associated with hair transplant in Turkey, and the factors determining the aches.

Type of Restorative Method Used

It is well known that older techniques of hair restoration come with some amount of pain. Earlier methods included the excision of larger sections of the scalp, more cutting for extraction of the donor hair followed by further cutting to introduce the donor hair to the recipient area. In contrast, newer methods such as Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) are more painful. These involve the only small amount of adjoining tissue for donor grafts, which significantly reduces the amount of pain that is sensed by patients.

SHIFT clients happen to complain very rarely about pain during operations.

The skill level of surgeons

The extent of pain also depends on whether or not you are going to a skilled surgeon, such as those in top clinics such as SHIFT Hair Transplant. With a surgeon who is experienced in the hair transplant technique, you can experience no pain. The degree of pain varies with the type of surgeon you are going for.

Pain in hair transplants depends on individual tolerance level.

Use of anaesthetics

Pain after hair transplant doesn't actually occur, even when your body is trying to heal itself. An aesthetic is administered to minimize the aches and discomfort associated with the process. After the effects of aesthetic wear off, you'll not feel pain as well and thanks to painkillers. Patients often manage to ward off the painful sensations with over the counter medications. In case of minor soreness and swelling of the scalp, paracetamols and other similar painkillers can be useful. Others do not need anything else for pain management.

Tolerance to pain

In many cases, the aches are subjective and vary from person to person depending on individual tolerance level. Some patients feel nothing more than pinpricks, while others have an acuter aching sensation. However, skilled cosmetic surgeons in reputed clinics such as SHIFT Hair Transplant use anaesthetics and the latest methods such as Micro-FUE and DHI to minimize pain as much as possible.
