I am Dr. Deepam Shah, Dermatologist. Today I will talk about hair transplantation. This procedure is done under local anesthesia and patient is conscious at the time of the procedure. Side-effects are also less. It is divided into the 3 zones. Front zone, med scalp and the last part. The number of hair for transplantation depends on every individual. This procedure is highly sophisticated and should be done properly. This is a highly skilled operation. Look at the degree first of the Dr. and Dr experience. We need to take proper precaution while doing this procedure. The result of transplantation starts on an immediate basis. Hair starts to grow after 2 months of the procedure.

So, you can expect the best result within 10-12 months. The natural growth of the hair line is very important. No one comes to know whether you have gone through this procedure or not. The only side-effect is minor pain which can be handled by painkillers, postoperative swelling. When we see less hair on the head donor area then we have to take out the hair from some other area like chest, hand and legs. There is a myth that hair will not grow in transplantation. Fact is that it is a part of natural hair. So, it grows in a natural way. 2nd myth is that brain damage can also happen. Fact is that we use local anesthesia on the local area. And it cannot cause any brain damage. If you have any query, contact me through Lybrate.
