Top Reasons Not to Be Afraid of Hair Transplants
Without side effects, a painless hair transplant is available at reasonable prices. Women or men recreate a new life for themselves with their brand-new hair. Anyone who meets the following criteria can have hair transplantation.
- Does not have any skin disease on the scalp
- Has sufficient root hair in the donor area
- Is not allergic to local anaesthesia
The tools used in the channel-opening phase are a product of new technology. They can penetrate the scalp up to half a centimetre. Thanks to the punches of 0.7 to 0.8 millimetres of micro motor, painless and traceless hair transplant operations are possible.
The main reason that people fear hair transplant is needle phobia. They think that they will be uncomfortable during injecting. Besides, they are overly worried that their postoperative images may look worse than before or look artificial. All this is due to “lack of information” about hair transplant operations.
During a hair transplant operation, under normal circumstances, you do not feel anything because of the anaesthesia during the procedure. Local anaesthesia is the injection of anaesthetic drugs to the transplant. Therefore, within approximately twenty minutes, local anaesthesia takes effect. During local anaesthesia, the patient is fully conscious and alert. As the local anaesthesia effect is alleviated, it is repeated during the operation.
Local anaesthesia with a needle also makes some people uneasy, especially those with needle phobia. Therefore, in such cases, the patient needs sedation before local anaesthesia.
Sedation, which we all hear about from time to time, is a common anaesthesia method in many medical procedures. These anaesthesia-administering methods were developed to ensure that the patient has an uneventful, painless, and smooth operation. Sedation likewise makes local anaesthesia more comfortable and painless.
Local anaesthesia is applied quickly to the area with fine needle tips, in a short time and with great care, to the sensitivity of the patient. Then, while the patient is chatting comfortably, the experts carry out the completely risk-free “hair transplant” procedure.
We prefer sedation in hair transplant operations for people
- with needle fear,
- who fear intense operation,
- with anxiety disorder, and
- who have a low pain threshold.
We apply short-term (ten to fifteen minutes) sedation before local anaesthesia for these patients. However, for people who do not have these problems, hair transplant is a comfortable process because of the improved techniques.
The Advantages of FUE and DHI Hair Transplant
These two methods are the most effective and successful techniques for hair transplants. They have certain advantages over traditional applications.
- Since there is no incision, there is no scarring.
- The hair follicles on the donor area, which is the back of the neck, are more reliable and more permanent.
- It is possible to have an unshaven hair transplant with these methods.
- The results are highly satisfying for many patients.
Hair transplantation operations are more comfortable under local anaesthesia. Besides, the patient will lie on his back during the operation, watching television or sleeping.
