Normal side effects after a hair transplantHome / All / Normal side effects after a hair transplant
The side effects a patient experiences after having a hair transplant are very normal and should not be of any concern. Normal side effects are as followed. One very normal side effect after hair restoration is shedding. The hair follicles go through the “Telogen phase” which is the phase where the hair falls out. After a few months the hair goes through the “Anagen phase” this is the time where the transplanted hair begins to grow. Itching of the wounds is normal in every surgical procedure as well as numbness but is generally temporary and will return back to how it has been prior to the procedure. Cyst are also a very common side effect after a hair transplant procedure, they appear like small pimples on the scalp and generally go away in a few weeks. Our patients commonly recover very quickly when following the post-op instructions and never experience complications.
