The FUE hair transplant has become one of the most popular methods of hair transplantation. This method is known for being minimally invasive and for having a 98% success rate, making it the safest hair transplant in this specific field of surgery, particularly when it’s performed by a specialized and well-trained surgeon.
Choosing an FUE hair transplant comes with many benefits, the most important ones being the following:
The FUE hair transplant is minimally invasive because it doesn’t involve any scalp cutting or stitches. The scarring is practically invisible due to the fact that the incisions made during the surgery are practically invisible to the naked eye and close up after a couple of days. This procedure is safe, in fact the risk of infections or complications is very low. However, there is a very small chance of suffering from some side effects linked to the FUE hair transplant.
Some possible side effects that FUE hair transplant patients might suffer from are bleeding, itching, swelling of the scalp, infections, numbness of the scalp, pain and/or possible hair shedding.
These FUE hair transplant side effects are usually minor and aren’t permanent. It’s important to note that there are certain measures that patients can take to minimize any risk of suffering from any of these side effects.
There are three things a patient can do to minimize the risk of side effects and ensure that they have a safe and positive recovery after their FUE hair transplant surgery.
The surgeon will prescribe antibiotics or pain medication to reduce the patient’s discomfort and bandage the patient's scalp which they will need to wear for the first few days after the procedure.
Knowing this information will help future candidates to go through a safe and risk free procedure and after care which will lead to very positive results.
As advised beforehand, candidates should book an online consultation with their chosen surgeon and figure out if this hair transplant method is the correct one for them.
