Whenever you decide to undergo any procedure, you always weigh the pros and the cons. You always need to be prepared for the worst. Experiencing Hair Transplant Toronto
is a tough step to take but always worth it. FUE has increasingly become a popular hair transplant procedure. It has minimal downtime and discomfort. The scarring from the procedure is also not easily visible to the naked eye. Once you have decided to undergo the procedure, you should be mentally prepared for the various risks which it might involve.
How does it feel after the procedure?
Once you have undergone FUE
, you will see the shape of a new hairline or the areas which have been filled. There will be little red spots on the scalp, out of which small hair would be sprouting. The back of the head may have a thin layer of gauze over it. You might experience some tenderness in the graft implantation site and for hairline transplants. Swelling across the forehead is normal for the first few days. The slight spotting of pinkish and bloody marks that you might see on the gauze where your donor site is should cease within the first 24 hours. These small holes will close up faster than you expect.
After the surgery, you would be advised not to keep your head up and avoid bending over. When you are sleeping, ensure that your head is somewhat elevated. The head elevation will help reduce the blood pressure in the treatment area, which has an impact on the swelling and bleeding. Keeping this in mind, you would also be asked to avoid working out as this could send more blood to the scalp, which could cause bleeding or even push out the new grafts.
When should you immediately report to the doctor?
Suppose you start to experience unexpected bleeding, increase in pain, increased redness. In that case, the grafts appear to be dislodged, spontaneous discharge or swelling which hasn’t begun to resolve after the first few days, then you should immediately report to the doctor. These are a few of the side effects which are related to the FUE hair transplant method. Whenever you feel that something is out of the ordinary, you should reach out to your doctor. In many cases, the irritation or the cause of concern is usually normal, but it is always best to get your doubts cleared and have a calm mind.
Can the hair fall out after the procedure?
After you have undergone FUE, you might experience some hair loss. If this is happening, then don’t panic; it is normal. The strands which have been implanted usually shed after 2 to 3 weeks of the transplant. It is not the hair that you need to worried about but the life of the follicle. The follicle needs to heal properly so that it can establish itself for future hair growth. The hair fall period might be short, but you will start to see new hair sprout up within three months.
