8 Biggest Downsides Of Hair Transplant

Although worldwide there are may be more than a million Hair Transplant clinics and if you put a search in Google you will get thousands of links, what people do not know is this procedure has a number of downsides which are not worth paying for. This is the reason why entertainers go for men’s hair replacement systems or women’s toupees to cover up their hair loss problems. 

Bleeding and injuries are essential part of the transplant process. Find out below what more it can offer. 

The first biggest downside is expense. On an average this is going to pull $3000 from you, that again if you are doing it for a small patch to cover. For androgenic alopecia or full balding, the expenses can reach up to $10,

The very next disappointing fact is that even after spending this much money, you can’t be assured of the results. Human bodies respond uniquely to this treatment that means you may not get the same kind of result which your neighbor has got for a similar kind of problem. In other words, in your case the takeaway may become ZERO.

The donor site from where the follicles are removed become exposed to trauma since the dermis which provides protection to the follicles also gets removed by this process. In case of FUE, surgeons extract the follicles from the back of the heads.

Immediately after the transplant surgery patients go under massive hair fall, thinning and more balding. Doctors call it SHOCK LOSS and say it is normal. They want patients to wait for 6 months for regrowth. They even say that it is quite normal that the regrowth may take 12 to 18 months!

Swelling of scalp, forehead and even eyes is part of the picture which stays for several days. These too seem normal to doctors but you can imagine how horrible it is for the patients.

Cysts appear in the recipient area and that last for several weeks. Imagine the embarrassment of the patient who will have to go out for work with the lumps on his head.

Maximum patients suffer numbness post surgery which continues for several weeks. There is no such time limit as in when this will end and the patient will start relieving.

Infections and continuous hiccups, though not too common can occur and stay for weeks.
