4 Important Considerations before Hair Transplantation

With the practice tremendously growing in popularity, hair transplantation is nowadays witnessing what’s best described as ‘widespread acceptance.’ From across-the-street clinics offering the services to tons of ads on social media, the whole thing is practically a norm today. 

But amidst this whole upsurge, not everyone has adequate information about the entire hair transplant surgery thing. They possibly have no idea that as a medical procedure, it has risks, too, and not everyone who goes under the knife gets out successfully. 

Well, if you are considering a hair transplant procedure in Thailand or just about anywhere, this post isn’t meant to scare you away. Instead, it should enlighten you on the possible side effects and whether you could be the right candidate for it. 

Let’s spill the facts and help you be aware of what this procedure involves, albeit in a nutshell!

1.    Your expectations vis-à-vis the reality

First, this question is possibly the most important, and you can’t afford to ignore it. Don’t let the sweetly worded adverts fool you; hair transplant surgeries also have limits. An area where the hair is lifted from might never have any regrows, and it could instead be a balding scalp. The surgeon has to be smart and decide how to create more significant hair surgery using a little amount of hair. 

2.    Duration to full recovery 

To be brutally honest, there’s no definite answer as everything depends upon the individual undergoing the procedure. In case of an FUE, it could take a week or two if it’s FUT at least since it’s physically invasive. 

But considering such aspects as having the region or the entire head shaved (both the donor and the recipient) and removal of the sutures or staples, it could take longer. If no shaving is done, a week or less after FUE could be enough. However, be sure to ask the doctor about this before the procedure. 

3.    Is one surgery enough?

Hair loss, being a progressive issue, means that multiple surgeries are often possible. You could still lose your hair later in life. And that’s why the rule of thumb is always to never expecting a lot; don’t be too greedy with your hair restoration plans. 

4.    Meeting the surgeon before the procedure

It is highly essential to sit down with an expert or a consultant before going under the cut. They will educate you on what to expect and alley your worries and concerns. But be sure to talk with a licensed physician.
