Is Hair Transplant a Painful Process

Hair Transplant Surgery, like any other procedure, involves a surgeon making tiny incisions into the skin. Because pain nerves run throughout the body and face, when a surgeon makes an incision into the skin, these nerves may be activated, causing agony.

There are several nerves in the scalp that must be anesthetized (blocked from functioning) so that the patient does not experience any discomfort during hair transplant surgery. Our surgeons use a variety of ways to do this:


· Injections of local anesthetics

· Dispensing Pain-Relieving Drugs

· Assuring each patient's comfort and relaxation 


Injections of local anesthesia 


Local anesthetic injections will be the most common approach used by your surgeon. These are little injections into the places where your surgeon will remove hair and replace it with new hair. The injections are given with a needle that is almost as thin as human hair!


Despite the fact that the needle is so tiny, our surgeons go above and beyond. They utilize a gadget on your skin to divert your brain's attention away from pain signals. This implies that any discomfort caused by the numbing injections will be greatly decreased. Your entire scalp will be numb after this stage, and you should not experience any pain during the treatment.


Dispensing Pain-Relieving Drugs


Our surgeons will also offer you with some pain-relieving medicines in addition to the local anesthesia. These can help you relax even more by reducing any discomfort you may experience throughout the process.


It is assuring that each and every patient feel at ease.


When you're worried, your brain perceives pain as more intense. As a result, one of the surgeon's top responsibilities is to keep each patient comfortable and calm. Every patient is kept at ease in our custom-built hair transplant facility. We employ a variety of methods, including:


This implies that you may fall asleep throughout your procedure since you are so relaxed.


During Hair Transplantation, Pain & Comfort


Following your initial local anesthetic injections, you should not experience any discomfort throughout the hair transplant. The hair transplant specialists will softly touch your scalp once the process begins. You could fall asleep with the help of relaxing music and aromatherapy.


With your choice of entertainment, you are kept as comfortable as possible. Suppose you stay awake during the operation. This covers music, podcasts, television, movies, and other media.


When you choose Hair N Images for your hair transplant, you can anticipate the most significant level of care and attention to your comfort. We take great satisfaction in making the procedure as painless as possible.


After Hair Transplantation, Is There a Lot Of Pain?


You will be provided a recuperation kit and instructions after your hair transplant. Any discomfort you experience will be readily controlled with over-the-counter pain relievers such as:


· Paracetamol

· Ibuprofen

· Most people are pain-free within two days and don't require any more medicines.


Following your operation, our surgeons will remain in touch with you on a regular basis. This ensures that your rehabilitation will continue as planned, and you will have access to our expert guidance through our specialised caretaker service whenever necessary.


Will my transplant be affected by pain?


Your hair transplant should not be affected by pain. If your pain persists for more than 28 days, you should contact your hair transplant clinic's surgeon, who will wish to examine you further.

Q. Hi Doctor, I have had severe hairfall for last 6-7 years, I lost more than 75% of my hair. Surprisingly enough though, there are no bald patches. I have consulted many doctors for a treatment. I underwent some tests 4 years back, they were all normal. I repeated the tests last year. and all (cbc, thyroid profile, Ana, vit D) were normal except for slightly dropping vit D levels, where i was given 3 doses of Vit D. Currently i am consuming multivitamins, and using piligrow hair spray as well as climbazam shampoo. I'm a medical student and experience stress. Could this possibly be a genetic issue since my mom had faced the same problem in her 20s and as my 3 sisters are also experiencing the same? And Is there any cure for this?

Although there is presently no cure for hair loss, scientific research could lead to one in the future. Researchers are currently researching the use of stem cells to encourage hair growth in males suffering from male pattern baldness.
