Though hair transplantation is considered the safest, most effective method for regaining hair, the process is not completely void of risk. More and more people are using this method to successfully increase their hair growth, making it all the more important to know the risks associated with the procedure. These side effects and risks associated with hair transplants, though rare, should be more than enough reason to ensure that you consult the most reputable, trusted medical consultants you can find.
With any surgery, including hair transplantation, hemorrhaging is a potential side effect during or immediately after the procedure. Any experienced hair transplant professional will have the proper techniques to ensure that hemorrhaging is limited and that infection probabilities remain at an all-time low.
Sometimes itching does occur, mainly due to the scab formation that follows a hair transplant procedure. Thousands of scabs may form after the surgery has been completed. To combat this, a simple shampoo and wash will do the trick. For more advanced, intense itching, a special type of moisturizing oil might be recommended. We also suggest that you use warm water in a spray bottle to keep the area moist.
