When it comes to surgery, we expect that there would be pain during and after the procedure. Every surgery involves cutting, manipulating, and stitching of body tissues. That’s why it is logical to think of pain when you hear of hair transplant surgery. But surprisingly, pain involved in case of surgical hair restoration is minimal to the degree that you can virtually neglect it.
Read the following paragraphs to know about the pain reported by hair transplant patients. Here we will also share with you how to have a hair transplant in Dubai without pain.
Although surgeries involve cutting, manipulating, and stitching body tissues, most surgeries are quite painless nowadays. Modern effective anesthesia has made possible to perform surgeries without pain. There has been a lot of research in the field of aesthetics over the last few decades, and researchers have come up with very effective and safe anesthetic agents.
A hair transplant procedure involves extracting donor hair follicles from the patients scalp or any other part of the body like chest, back or legs and planting them in the recipient area. Both steps require cutting or at least piercing of scalp tissues. If your surgeon is using strip removal method to extract donor hair, he has to excise a part of your scalp from the back of your head. This is considerably invasive. Even if your surgeon is using FUE, he has to make thousands of punches, deep enough to extract donor hair without damaging their roots.
Similarly, your surgeon needs to create small holes to plant extracted hair in the recipient area. These holes, also called slits, which must be deep enough to hold your planted hair until they grow roots.
You will be surprised to know that you don’t feel any pain during the whole procedure, even though you will be fully conscious during your hair transplant procedure.
The only painful moment during hair transplant procedure is when the anesthesia is administered to the scalp. This local anesthesia is injected with very fine needles. You will feel less pain than you experience during your normal injection. After this injection, you will feel no pain for the rest of your procedure.
The best way to have a hair transplant without pain is to root out the fear of pain from your head. If you will be relaxed, you will feel no pain during your surgery. There is minimal post-surgery discomfort for hair transplant patients. Many patients even do not take painkillers prescribed by the surgeon.
If you opt for strip removal method, the traditional Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT), you may feel stiffness for a couple of days. But don’t worry, it will be gone soon and you will be fine again.
