Hair Transplantation is one of the easiest and quickest ways to get back your lost hair and recover from baldness in today’s era.

All across the world, there are millions of people who have chosen the way of hair transplantation for hair restoration procedures so as to boost up your self-esteem and self-confidence.

So, it becomes necessary for you to have consultations and awareness about all the side-effects that are likely to occur when you have a hair transplantation surgery done.

Radiance Cosmedic Centre provides you with excellent services of hair transplantation surgical procedures and its outstanding doctors and experienced surgeons reduce the chances of having such side-effects, but since human bodies differ, the patients are likely to react to the procedure and medication in different ways. So, we counsel the patients before the surgery regarding probability of these side-effects.
Given below are some of the side-effects that might be observed by the patients that undergo hair transplantation.
When the patient gets a hair transplantation done, they are likely to experience the issue of hair shedding first. It is claimed to be a natural process after hair transplantation which happens because the roots of the hair get intact and the hair shaft wither down and the hair growth starts from the root again. The hairs that have been transplanted fall out in about 2-3 weeks and the new growth of hair becomes visible within 3-4 months.
Whether it is a follicular unit transplant or follicular unit extraction method, you are likely to have some cuts and nicks, and there are chances to have a little blood loss too. While the most experienced doctors of Radiance Cosmedic Centre will ensure that the blood loss is minimised still there are slight chances of blood ooze in the post-surgery period. So we let our patients know of these certain things so that they might not panic.
In hair transplantation surgeries, it becomes important for you to choose good doctors and surgeons because then you can be sure that you will not have to face any infections. However, even with the best facilities there are slight chances for the patients to be prone to certain infections for which a short course of antibiotics is necessary.
A hair transplantation procedure, FUE or FUT is a surgical process and there are chances to have some amount of pain, especially in FUT. The doctor administers sedatives and anaesthesia before conducting surgeries to diminish the pain, however in some rare cases, there is pain even after the surgical procedure has been completed. Some painkillers are also prescribed to avoid the excruciating pains in the post-op period.
Itching is one of the most common side effects and is experienced that a majority of people who undergo a hair transplantation surgeries. The itching might take place due to the formation of scabs at the transplant site. Spraying the prescribed solution on the grafts might help you tackle such issues and then it is recommended to wash the scalp with a medication shampoo after the initial weeks of the surgery.
Some of the patients might experience swelling on their forehead, while others might experience it around their eyes. Normally, such swelling tends to subside with the passage of time, however, Radiance Cosmedic Centre excels in providing medical services that have been devised with safe latest techniques, therefore, there are hardly seen any of our patients who have reported of having such issues.
The numbness is often observed due to the cutting of nerves in FUT procedure. However, at our Radiance Cosmedic Centre, our doctors and surgeons stand out in avoiding any nerve damage and hence numbness of any kind.

However, in an FUT procedure, then the patient is bound to have a linear scar, but with proper hair growth the patient won’t be required to worry about anything.
The cysts might appear in the form of a cluster of pimples which disappear in a few weeks, but if they do not, then you must visit the doctor. However the expert surgeons of Radiance Cosmedic Centre take care while extraction of grafts that they don’t leave any buried hair.
