What to Expect from Hair Transplant Surgery

Benefits of hair transplants surgery

Benefits of hair transplants surgeryFor many people experiencing baldness or thinning hair, the only thing more frightening than losing their hair is hair transplant surgery. People fear having surgery, and these fears keep them from getting a hair transplant, which are by far the most effective hair restoration treatment available. Yet there are still people suffering from baldness who refuse to explore the option and instead choose to spend time and money on treatments that don’t work.

A lot of people have misguided beliefs or assumptions about what actually goes on with a hair transplant, and this is particularly unfortunate as there is really nothing to fear. Hair transplants may be a type of surgery, but the procedure is safe, harmless, and about as frightening as a routine dental check-up.

A hair transplant in Ontario or your region is certain to be the most effective treatment. As long as you choose one of the best hair transplant clinics in Toronto or your locale, you can expect the following things:

It’s Safe and Painless

Hair transplants are an incredibly safe type of surgery. In a hair transplant, a surgeon removes a tiny strip of skin with hair follicles from the back of your head and grafts them onto any balding spots. This may sound frightening, but it really isn’t. Using a local anaesthetic, patients barely feel a thing while the surgery is being performed. It is typically completely painless, and patients can usually read or watch TV while the doctor completes the procedure. There are very few medical procedures which are as painless or safe as a hair transplant.

It’s Quick

Hair transplant surgery is also incredibly quick. It’s a one-time procedure and a permanent solution for balding. For most cases, people only have to go to the clinic once and can leave the same day with the procedure completed. Plus, very little of the hair transplant involves the actual surgery. After the surgeon removes the strip of hair follicles, there’s a waiting period of a few hours while the follicles are readied for grafting. You are free to take a walk, watch TV, or catch up with some friends over the phone while you wait. It’s likely your hair transplant surgery will feel more like a day off work than anything else.

Very Fast Recovery Time

With most hair transplants, you can walk out of the clinic the same day the surgery is completed and, in the vast majority of cases, patients can return to their regular daily routine the next day (although some may choose to take a couple days off). The truth is that there is no major recovery or post-surgery care required with a hair transplant. Usually, you will not even have bandages. Sometimes, you may be given over-the-counter pain medication, but often even these are not needed. The only precaution to take after your hair transplant is to avoid heavy lifting for a small amount of time, usually a few days. Hair transplants are one of the only procedures with almost no recovery time whatsoever.

In business since August 1, 1986, I am the president and also a client at The Canadian Institute of Hair & Scalp Specialists. Having worked with a team of Doctors and Chemists over the years I have compiled a great deal of knowledge in this area, originally involved with a Pharmaceutical company manufacturing vitamins for the hair loss industry. Years ago I was fascinated by the new developments in this area as my own hair was beginning to thin. Studying Trichology at the Toronto clinic I then opened my own office and have enjoyed it ever since.
