How painful is the hair transplant?

When the word SURGERY comes PAIN travels alongside but thankfully hair transplantation is not a painful surgical procedure if operated by the right hands since the complete procedure is carried out under Local anesthesia. However, this does not mean there is no discomfort. Some discomfort might remain for just 2-4 days and diminishes gradually with every passing day .

However, the type of procedure can determine the level of pain felt. FUT or Follicular Unit Transplant is said to be more painful than Follicular Unit Extraction ( FUE). This is due to the whole patch including hair follicle along with the skin of the scalp is incised from the healthy region and implanted into the area of hair loss. Whereas in FUT technique, each hair follicle is extracted using different sizes of punching blades and then implanted on deficient sites. With the advent of technology and very precise instruments , the pain intensity has come down drastically .

Normally our patients don’t even take painkillers post transplant but some patients can be little more sensitive than others and even if it happens , it is more of tenderness and less of pain . While the patient will still observe some post-surgical marks over the transplantation area. However, you are most likely to be free from pain & tenderness after 3-4 days all together.IF you are planning to undergo Hair transplant surgery, then there might be several questions in your mind like,

What if I feel more pain than other patients?

My pain threshold is very low, will I be able to bear pain?

What if my pain doesn’t go off?

Then, you need not to worry about the post operative pain.

Pain killers are prescribed by our surgeon to help relieve such pain which are to be taken for 4-5 days after the surgery. However most people do not need them for more than 1 day after the transplant though, which again shows how minimal the discomforts can be .
