There are many people who, even at this time, seek information about the hair transplantation. This is, after all, the only solution to combat the androgenetic alopecia. The difference between this form and, for example, the stress alopecia is that it is not something reversible. Those who suffer from hair loss related to a strong state of stress can, with the right medical indications and treatment of the causes, see their hair reborn even without transplantation. When, however, testosterone, DHT and various enzymes come into play, there is no chance of obtaining the same good results without a transplant.

However, in the collective imagination, hair transplantation is something that is definitely scary. It is thought of as a painful and invasive surgery. But is it really so?

Before and after hair transplantation: the answers you need to know

The first question that arises is about the pain that comes with hair transplantation. Many people think it is unbearable, to say the least. Not true. Of course, like all surgical procedures, hair transplants are performed under local anesthesia and with all the necessary precautions. The hair is not ripped from the scalp, especially if you prefer the FUE technique, which does not involve the removal of an entire strip of skin but the extraction of each individual follicular unit. This reduces pain, but also avoids the need for suture which, as is well known, could bring complications.

Even in the post-operative period, there is the fear that you will experience pain. This is a myth that needs to be dispelled too. Obviously you may experience a feeling of discomfort, but also a sort of tension in the donor area, but nothing more. When you opt for FUE, the scabs that form after the extraction of the follicles fall off spontaneously within a few days (10-15 at most) and without any problems for those who have undergone the transplant. There are no limitations regarding the resumption of activities after 48-72 hours.

The advice is to follow carefully all that is suggested by the doctor, so as not to have problems and to be able to overcome the post-operative period as quickly as possible. The trichologist plays a very important role and is the one who is able to answer all questions and dispel false myths about hair transplantation.

Before carrying out the transplant, it is necessary to know how to choose the most suitable doctor for your needs: for sure, relying on professionals in the field, who have proven experience in the field, is the basic condition to be sure of an excellent result and a transplant done in the best way. Therefore, you should inform yourself until you find the professional who is able to solve your problem, whatever it may be. Not only those who suffer from androgenetic alopecia, but also those who suffer from hair loss induced by other problems, resort to transplantation.
