Side Effects Of A Hair Transplant

Side Effects Of A Hair Transplant, A hair loss transplant is a surgical procedure. And, regardless of how minimally invasive it is, it has its own set of side effects attached to it as any surgery would. The side effects particular to the hair transplant procedure are rather mild. And a skilled surgeon, such as ours, will help greatly in avoiding the riskier ones from having a serious effect on you. 

Shock Loss

After around two to four weeks of undergoing your hair transplant surgery, you might notice hairs from the graft falling off. Don’t panic, it is simply a much necessary part of the process. ‘Shock Loss’ is the name of this event and it is something that is not exclusive to hair transplants in the slightest. 

See, a shock loss happens when the body undergoes intense physical stress very suddenly. Events such a very invasive surgical procedure cause it due to the body requiring to divert blood flow to the operated zone. The redirection of a notable amount of the blood flowing through your body means that your body diverts it from certain zones.

One of the first zones it takes blood flow from just happens to be the scalp. Why is that? Because, technically, hair is not necessary for your survival, it is not a vital organ, it is not really alive even. When blood flow to the scalp reduces, the hair follicle underneath it no longer has the nutrient to keep making hair. 

Thus, hair stops growing and enter into the ‘resting phase’ of the hair growth cycle prematurely and simply waits to fall. Which is why shock loss happens. Once the healing the affected part of the body heals, blood flow resumes and the hair grows kickstarts once again. 

Shock Loss After A Hair Transplant

Now, that is why shock loss happens for invasive surgical procedures. But why does it happen for a minimally invasive surgical procedure like a hair transplant? Basically, for the same reason. The surgery extracts hair follicles from the donor site and grafts it into the receiving site. 

And the blood flow those extracted hair follicles is disrupted as a result and the hair enters the resting phase prematurely all the same. Need not to worry, it will grow back after it successfully takes to the receiving site’s blood flow.

Infection of the hair follicles grafted goes by the name of folliculitis. It rarely happens and it’s likely a result of shoddy surgical skill. When it happens, it looks like inflamed scarred skin around the grafts in the receiving site. 

A mild antibiotic cream included in the post-care instruction medications can take care of it. If it persists despite the application, contact your surgeon for further instructions.

To avoid such problems, there are two things that you must do. First of all, you must take care of your head properly in any case. But even before that, you should have your operation from a reputable clinic that has skilful surgeons, like ours.

Curling Hair Follicle
