What the treatment is like?

Few cosmetic procedures come with no discomfort at all. If you’re considering a hair transplant in Miami and worried about pain, we understand. We’ll take an honest, close-up look at what’s involved, giving you a realistic understanding and expectation of the procedure. Usually, knowing more puts a mind at ease.

The truth is, everyone experiences discomfort a bit differently, so no one will be able to tell you exactly what to predict. However, most people feel their restored hair is well worth the temporary experience of healing. Being prepared helps. Here’s what the treatment is like:

Miami hair transplant methods

If your research so far has consisted of viewing the before and after photos for hair transplants, you may have seen the red dots across hairlines and crowns, and at the back of the head. They appear raw and sore, but those tiny openings close within a few days and heal with virtually no scarring.

The FUE approach to hair restoration surgery involves removing hair grafts one graft at a time. These are typically harvested from the back and sides of the head where hairs are naturally DHT resistant.

This is a popular but labour-intensive procedure. The results directly after surgery can appear painful but don’t usually hurt. The depth of the follicular punch is very shallow- just deep enough to extract hair follicles. Also, topical and injected anesthetic keeps the scalp numb throughout the process and for a while after. When this wears off, you’re likely to feel as though you have a sunburn on your head for a few days.

Those who opt for the strip method, (FUT) will have slightly more to contend with as there will be a strip of scalp extracted from the back of their head. This incision is stitched up and will require roughly 2 weeks to heal. It can feel a bit sensitive and itchy while healing.
