What Does Miami FUE Feel Like?

In Beautiful, sunny Miami, FUE hair transplants involve redistribution of existing hair follicles from one area of the scalp to another where there is no hair or less density.

The process is classified as a surgery, though it is a minimally invasive, micro-surgery. Previous FUT methods were known as strip surgery because they utilized a surgically excised strip of scalp from the back of the head. With modern FUE approaches using a tiny punch tool to extract tissue cylinders less than 1mm wide, this surgery is the least traumatic option for the scalp yet.

Is this going to hurt? This common question is a fair one,and our patients will often ask whether their hair transplant surgery will be painful. Of course, discomfort is experienced somewhat subjectively, and each person may give you a unique answer, but in general, this is not described as a painful process.

During the surgery itself,a local anesthetic is used to numb the scalp tissue completely. This is typically injected after a topical numbing cream is applied. There is a chance you’ll feel a pinprick sensation during this initial freezing,but your hair transplant surgeon will do their best to keep you completely comfortable throughout.

Is The Recovery After FUE Treatment Painful?

Your scalp will be numb for a few hours following your treatment,and you’ll be provided with oral pain medication. We recommend that you take medication as prescribed. Sometimes people wait until they are quite uncomfortable before they take a pill and by that time they will have suffered needlessly for some time until the medication takes effect. You may find that an over the counter analgesic is sufficient for you or ask your surgeon for a stronger medication that will also help you sleep. The sensation of itching can be described as annoying after surgery,but this is an expected, natural part of the healing process. We offer topical, soothing lotions and medications to help with itching if needed.

You can expect the scalp to feel sensitive, somewhat swollen and sore for 5-7 days post-procedure. If you see bleeding or increased swelling and redness along with discomfort, ask your surgeon to assess you to rule out any unexpected problems.

When Can You Return To Work?

Most of our patients feel up to returning to work after 3-5 days, depending on their workplace environment and the nature of their job. You can wear a soft hat if you prefer and continue to take OTC pain relievers for any residual discomfort. Avoid touching the scalp and protect the micro incisions form bacterial exposure in baths, pools and hot tubs until completely healed- usually after the 10-day mark. If you have additional questions about the process and recovery after a Miami FUE, we’d love to hear from you. We welcome you to contact the Nova Medical Hair Transplant Clinic today and arrange a private consultation.
