Is Hair Transplant Painful Procedure?14

If you are currently going through a phase where you are losing a lot of hair and believe that hair transplant might be your only way out, it is advised that you must always consult a specialist. They have all the knowledge regarding the matter and will definitely answer all your questions regarding the matter.

One of the many questions that might pop up in your mind should include the amount of pain that you might have to go through. Since it’s a surgical operation and the scalp is a sensitive area, there is always a possibility that you might go through a lot of pain. However, there is less to fear than you may think.

Is Hair Transplant Painful Procedure?

The operation itself is not as painful as people might think. Since the doctor is puncturing your scalp and it is a sensitive area, people have the misconception that they might have to go through the pain throughout the time the process takes place.

The only pain that you will go through is during the time you are being injected with a local anaesthesia. You can compare this pain to the pain when you go to a dentist. If you ever went to a dentist to get your tooth extracted, they always put an injection in your gum; this pain is equivalent to that pain.

Now apply the dental analogy to your scalp. Once the tooth is gone, you do feel a little pain and there is swelling as well. Similarly, the scalp will experience a bit of swelling and you will go through little pain in patches.

Luckily, the technology has advanced to the extent that through medicines and certain skills, there is a possibility that you might not even experience this pain and swelling.

The problem, however, is with the old techniques. If you are going to a doctor who is currently doing this process with older techniques, there is a possibility that you might go through an extremely painful hair transplant procedure. This is the reason why you should ask several questions from your doctor before you decide that you should go for a hair transplant.
