As a general rule, there are four major phases in the surgical procedure for hair transplantation:
Examination: Before performing the transplant, the doctor checks the balding regions as well as the potential donor sites. Then he calculates the amount of grafts that will be necessary, taking into consideration parameters such as:
- Color and texture of one’s hair
- The location and size of the transplantation site
- Hair quality, such as thickness and color, are important considerations.
The extraction of follicles from the donor location: An in-office procedure or the use of a follicular extractor is used to remove donor hair follicles, which is a small surgery.
Preparation of the recipient’s site: Preparation of the area where donor hair follicles will be transplanted.
Donor follicle implantation: This is the procedure that is used to transplant hair follicles into bald or thin parts of the body.
Is The Surgery For Hair Transplantation Painful?
Now onto the question that we are most asked by our patients: “Is the surgery for hair transplantation painful?. At the end of the day, hair transplantation is a surgical process, and as such, local anesthetic is required to decrease discomfort. It goes without saying that this demonstrates that this procedure can cause some discomfort during and after the procedure. However, hair transplantation is unquestionably less unpleasant now than it was in the past, because of advancements in technology, talent, and medical science, among other factors.
The doctor will provide local anesthetic to the patient’s scalp before beginning the transplant surgery. Anesthesia reduces the pain to a minimum. The only thing that might cause discomfort is the first injection, which can be a bit uncomfortable. The remainder of the process will be pretty painless when this stage is completed. The objective of the Nova Medical Hair Transplant clinic is for all of our clients to be as comfortable as possible throughout their treatment process.
