Hair transplantation is performed under local anaesthesia, and only the areas of the recipient and the donor that are to be treated are anesthetized.
Hair transplantation is much less painful than many other surgical procedures. Pain is felt only during needle anaesthesia injection.
To relieve pain after surgery, you can use painkillers. The pain may be felt in the first few hours as a kind of burning sensation. Postoperative pain may vary depending on the applicable technique. The FUT technique can be more painful than other techniques due to stitches.
Other possible effects of hair transplantation are different for each person individually. With the manifestation of oedema, the formation of acne, shock hair loss, to eliminate these consequences, the use of tablets is appropriate.
In general, postoperative pain and other possible effects are temporary, but the effects after the FUT method may be permanent.
The pain tolerance, pain perception, the metabolic response to surgery and the recovery time are different for each person. Temporary pain and other side effects that can be felt after hair transplantation are important for the positive psychological effect of the natural appearance that will be obtained as a result of the operation.
