Problems with hair replacement that can occur

Many people today have benefited from hair replacement procedures or non-surgical techniques when they are experiencing the balding process.  It’s no secret that losing one’s hair can be an emotional experience and one that negatively impacts a person’s self esteem as it evolves.  So they oftentimes turn to different non-surgical or surgical replacement concepts to counteract their condition.  You want to be careful whenever you are trying to decide on a hair replacement procedure or product before making your decision as there are sometimes problems encountered with either.

Infection – anytime you have hair replacement surgery performed, there is always the possibility that an infection could arise after the procedure has been performed.  In most instances, the surgeon is going to prescribe an antibiotic and painkiller to offset any potential risks of infection and discomfort in the post-operative stage.

Nerve damage – although it is rare, there can be nerve damage that results from the surgery.  A loss of feeling around the hair replacement area is what characterizes nerve damage.  This can be permanent or it can be temporary and eventually the feeling in the scalp is restored.

Noticeable transplant areas – you may have to deal with the embarrassment of the transplanted hairs being noticeable and somewhat unsightly.  It is therefore important that you interview several hair replacement surgeons in order to ascertain their years of experience so that this does not occur when you have the surgery performed.  After all, you don’t want someone operating on your scalp if they are not that skilled at performing the procedure.

Scabbing – although scabbing is normal, it shouldn’t be viewed as a problem as this is a temporary inconvenience that typically clears up within 10 to 14 days after the hair replacement surgery has been performed.  Just remember that this part of the process is totally normal and will eventually clear up.

Unsuccessful hair replacement surgery – anytime you are having surgery performed, there is always the risk that it may not be successful.  This is also the case with this type of procedure.  Sometimes the donor replacement hair is not healthy enough to withstand the transplantation process and re-growth does not happen.  Your physician or surgeon will be able to determine if your condition has evolved to the point where having a surgical procedure performed will be ineffectual in the long run so that you are not disappointed and do not waste any money on it.
