Hair transplant is a type of surgery, so you must consider these problems:
One probable hair transplant danger is the areas of numbness after the procedure. If the nerves in the donor or transplant site get damaged it causes numbness. Though in some cases numbness is temporary, in others it can be permanent.
This surgery can cause scarring, but if it is successful the new hair will cover them. However, your hair may reject the hair transplant. Then, there will be a noticeable scar in the bald area. Some factors such as skin sensitivity, the way the hair transplant is done, and the surgeon’s skill of doing the procedure determine the amount of surgery.
The surgeon may prescribe antibiotics before the surgery and anti-inflammatory after the hair transplant to prevent infection. But, sometimes serious infections happen.
Hair transplant procedure is done under local anesthesia which has the danger of allergic reaction. It can also cause other reactions such as central nervous system problems or cardiac reactions. They happen rarely, but they can be deadly.
Your body may reject the hair transplant despite the surgery seems successful. It may don’t have physical harm, but makes you disappointed from the surgery and out of money.
Hair curl means that the transplanted follicle under the scalp gets cured. It can result in ingrown hair and infection. If hair curl happens for a large number on the transplanted hair, the result will appear unnatural.
Grafts fail to take hair transplantation
If your grafts do not take to the scalp the surgery repetition will be required.
Other hair transplant complications include:
- Scalp laxity
- Scalp bleeding and swelling
- Shock loss
