What is FUE hair transplant?
How long does FUE hair transplant take?
Can hair transplant be performed on other areas other than the scalp?
Absolutely. In fact, hair transplant procedure is so versatile that it can be performed on mustache, beards, sideburns, goatee, and eyebrows. Hair transplant can also be performed to conceal unsightly scars on the face or scalp.
What is the post-treatment recovery process like?
After the long surgery, both the donor and recipient sites will be very tender. You may be required to take pain relief medications for a few days. In some cases, antibiotics may be prescribed to you too. You will have to wear bandages over both sites for a day or two. We encourage you to take a few days off work. You should be able to return to work about 3 to 5 days after the procedure.
Why does my transplanted hair fall out?
Don’t be alarmed. It is perfectly normal for the transplanted hair to fall out after 2 to 3 weeks post-surgery. You will start to notice fine hair growing out from the follicles after 3 months.
Are there any risks or side effects?
Most cases of hair transplant surgeries should make a full recovery without any side effects. No surgery is risk-free. Some people may experience the following common side effects:
- Crusting or pus drainage around surgical sites
- Pain, itch or swelling of the surgical sites
- Inflammation of hair follicles
Although common, these side effects can be minimised with excellent care from the healthcare team here at Radium Medical Aesthetics.
