Hair Transplant Side effect
What kind of side effects are possible with hair transplant surgery? Could your real hair end up falling out?
Hair transplants are very safe procedures with few side effects. In fact, a hair transplant is considered a "minor outpatient procedure ".
The common side effects are swelling, minor discomfort, numbness, itching, and local inflammation. However, they are not severe and are temporary. infection and bleeding are minimal. The development of temporary numbness does not happen in every patient and is usally temporary (6-8 weeks or more) and does not effect the growth of the hair. The numbness is in the back just above the donor scar.
Very rarely a patient may experience shock loss (temporary loss), but this is temporary and the hair will grow back in 3-6 months . temporary loss after surgery is normal with transplants
Bad design of your new hairline may be a risk factor, but this is easily avoidable with an experienced surgeon, supporting staff, and good communication with your surgeon. If a donor strip is harvested, there is a chance of a widened scar which is easily corrected.
