How long should numbness after hair transplantation?

Since hair transplantation is defined as a surgical procedure, it is normal to experience some complications and have complaints after the procedure. One of these complications is numbness in the candidate after the treatment. When candidates experience numbness, they wonder when this feeling will go away. Since the numbness after hair transplantation is a condition related to anesthesia, when it will go away also differs from patient to patient. To express this period in general, it is the first 24 hours, but the time to wait for the complaint to go away may be a little longer.

The reason why the candidate feels numbness at the end of the hair transplant treatment is the anesthesia in order not to feel pain and pain during the operation. Since local anesthesia is applied to a single area of the candidate during the procedure, it is normal to experience numbness in that area. Numbness of the scalp is simply temporary side effect of treatment. If the candidate feels itching and tingling in the operation area, this is a sign that the numbness has passed. Since these complaints show that the candidate has recovered, the process should be followed.

There are more than one technique in hair transplant. There are more than one hair transplant technique. Therefore, when numbness is felt, it can vary not only from patient to patient, but also according to the technique used.

As we mentioned above, the duration of numbness after hair transplantation varies from person to person. Because some people’s bodies may be more resistant against anesthesia, while others are sensitive. Therefore, the selection of hair transplant center is important for increasing the comfort of hair transplantation. If the candidate experiences the feeling of numbness for a long time after hair transplantation, he/she should know that there is nothing to worry about. This is a situation that will disappear spontaneously in the natural process.

How to understand the best hair transplant center?

× Since hair transplantation requires professionalism, it should be performed by people who have been specially trained and experienced in hair transplantation.

× Since hair transplantation is a surgical procedure, the best hair transplantation center should be a place that is prepared against complications that may occur during and after the procedure and that performs hair transplantation under sterile conditions.

× The best hair transplant center performs hair analysis for the candidate first. Hair analysis determines the type of hair loss and calculates how many hair follicles are needed for hair transplantation, then a donor area for the candidate and analyzes whether there are enough hair follicles in this area. If the candidate does not have enough hair follicles in the donor area, hair transplantation may fail for that patient. In some cases, the candidate can achieve the desired appearance when he has a second hair transplant.

× For hair transplantation, the type of hair loss is more important than age. If the scalp is seen directly with the eye, hair transplantation can be considered as a effective treatment. Being aware of this, the best hair transplant center should determine first the type and stage of hair loss. For example, if the candidate has male-pattern hair loss, this hair loss is lifelong and slows down after the age of 35. Since hair loss continues after the age of 35, the candidate may consider getting a second or third hair transplant done.

× Hair transplantation can be performed not only for hair loss, but also for hair loss after burns, empty spots in the eyebrow, those who have had hair transplantation before but are not satisfied with the result, and areas that are partially bald due to some reasons.
