Is hair transplant painful?
Experiencing hair loss can be very stressful. As hair transplant procedures become very popular around the world, many patients wonder if this procedure is painful and difficult. Many of the people who are seeking hair transplant for their thinning hair are reluctant because they feel it may be too uncomfortable or may have prolonged recovery period. It is the responsibility of the hair transplant surgeon and the staff to make the whole experience as comfortable as possible with the easy recovery.
Medical science is constantly evolving and improving the hair transplant procedures. With the latest techniques in hair restoration the procedures are very easy and the recovery period may be close to a week to 10 days. However this may vary for each client and also from one clinic to another. The whole process may depend on the hair restoration surgeons' technique, the expertise of the surgeon and his staff during the procedure, the surgical facility and the after care and post op care recommended. So it becomes a necessity to find a hair transplant clinic that specializes in hair restoration only and also has a qualified and experienced hair transplant surgeon.
The first step is to find a hair restoration surgeon with experience and find out about the surgical facility and every thing that is involved during and after the procedure. Some clinics which are not specialized in hair restoration and do it on the side, may not be equipped for patient care that is necessary throughout the procedure. It is important to make sure the hair transplant clinic specializes in hair restoration only and has a doctor on site for the whole procedure.
At Meshkin Medical hair restoration clinic, Dr. Meshkin explains the whole procedure on the first consultation evaluation. The hair restoration process is explained from pre op, to the day of the procedure, post op care and all the necessary follow ups. With the utmost care, Dr. Meshkin provides a combination of sedatives and local injections which makes the whole procedure very easy and comfortable. Most patients sleep through most of the procedure. Once the surgery is done the patient is provided with all the necessary post op care medications and products. Dr. Meshkin always follows up with his clients a few hours after the surgery to review the post op care and also answer any questions that they may have. The next day, Dr. Meshkin will see the patient again to remove the bandage and review the post op care and shampooing. The shampooing usually starts right away which helps with the scabs and the healing process. The scabs usually fall off after a week, but if there is any left, it is removed on the follow up visit after one week. Meanwhile the staff and Dr. Meshkin are available and keep in touch with the patient during the recovery period to make sure all the questions and concerns are taken care of. This ensures the whole process from before the procedure, also during and after goes smoothly with utmost degree of care and comfort.
