The hair transplant is done by removing hair follicles from the back of your scalp (donor area) and transplanting them to the bald areas of the scalp (recipient area). These follicles come from your own hair follicles as well as your donor area. During the Hair Transplants London procedure, the hair follicles are separated from your donor area, and then moved to your recipient area. They are moved in a very precise manner.
The hair transplant procedure is performed with the help of a surgeon, a nurse and a person called an anesthesiologist. The anesthesiologist injects local anesthesia (local anesthesia is a painkiller) in the scalp to make the procedure pain-free.
A second nurse helps the surgeon with the donor and recipient areas. The area from which the hair follicles are removed is called the donor area. The area to which the hair follicles are transplanted is called the recipient area.
You will be asked to lie on a bed and do not move for the duration of the surgery. This helps us to monitor your vital signs and the procedure without any disturbances.
You will feel pain when the scalp is being cut for the donor area. Most of the pain is felt during the first few minutes. You will feel more pain when the procedure is over. The anesthesiologist will administer pain medication right after the procedure and it will help you to get rid of pain.
You will feel a prick in the donor area when the surgeon starts the procedure. This is a very small incision and the surgeon will make it bigger if necessary. You will feel a pinch when the surgeon sews up the incision. You will feel a very sharp pain when the stitches are removed from your scalp.
The hair follicles are moved from the donor area to the recipient area using a special instrument called a punch.
You will be asked to sleep on the bed for three to four hours after the procedure. You should sleep on a comfortable position to allow the bleeding to stop and the stitches to heal properly.
It is very rare that there is a need for your donor area to be enlarged. The surgeon will remove the Hair Transplants London from the donor area if they are of a large size.
You may feel a lump on the back of your head for some time after the surgery. This is nothing to worry about and it will disappear in two weeks.
