Hair Transplant, Are There Any Side Effects?

The capillary graft is the definitive solution to fight alopecia. But what can happen after having a hair surgery? Below we detail the most common side effects that may occur:

  • Folliculitis. It is an inflammation of the hair follicle. It usually appears in the form of small whitish grains. Its appearance manifests an infection, therefore it should be treated immediately by the specialist.
  • Edema. Post-surgical edema is very common since it is a reaction of the usual body to any intervention, however minimal it may be.

In this case, postoperative care is essential. Rest and application of cold constantly on the face and forehead area in the following 24 hours are essential post-operative care after a hair implant surgery.

Paresthesias or numbness: this is another of the most common effects and is temporary.

All these side effects are not generic, they will depend on each patient and at the time of experiencing one, you should go to the specialist immediately.
