The number of people who would like to undergo cosmetic, aesthetic, and plastic procedures has been increasing for the last 10 years. Especially hair transplant candidates are not so hesitant about the procedures as those in the past were. Since today’s hair transplant procedures are completely perfect and safe, people now enjoy low-cost high-quality procedures in health tourism destinations. However, since it’s still a medical procedure, side effects can sometimes be inevitable. Hair transplant long-term side effects are very rare, but can sometimes be really annoying.
There are several complications that can be seen after hair transplant procedures. For example, swelling is almost inevitable when it comes to getting a hair transplant procedure. Eye-surrounding area and forehead generally suffer from swelling during the early recovery days of a hair transplant.
Swelling does not stay for a long time but it’s considered the most annoying hair transplant complication. Some people may suffer from swelling for a long time and may need their surgeons’ consultation for prescription lotions, creams, and drugs.
Shock hair loss is a long term hair transplantation complication in which the transplanted hair strands partly or completely fall out sometime after the procedures. Hair transplant patients may suffer from shock hair loss on an irregular basis. This type of hair loss is not permanent but may not leave your scalp alone for months. That’s why your full hair density recovery may take up to 9 months because of shock hair loss.
Redness on the donor area is sometimes considered a long-term hair transplant side effect. Some people claim that they’ve been suffering from redness on their donor area for months. It is not a big deal and the only thing that you need is a little more time. You do not have to use creams, lotions, or drugs for the redness on your donor area.
