With a poorly executed procedure, there is a chance of side effects hair restoration, but they are usually rare and easily avoided. Hair restoration is a truly innovative cosmetic surgery, due to such things as advanced hair transplant surgical techniques and the healing capabilities of the scalp. It is one of the most effective treatments for hair loss and among the most non-invasive procedures. However, it is a surgery and with any surgery, there is the risk of complications.

Other side effects hair restoration causes

When the procedure is not performed properly, there are some side effects of hair restoration. These are rare but can occur. One of the most rare is necrosis in the recipient area of the scalp. Necrosis is the premature death of cells in living tissue and occurs from infection. Recipient necrosis in a hair restoration procedure can occur for several reasons. The first category is from the patient side. Necrosis can occur If the patient is or was a smoker, if they have been diagnosed with diabetes or if they are experiencing long-standing baldness where there are no follicles or the follicles are extremely damaged .

Another factor in recipient necrosis is from the surgeon side, making it more likely that there will be side effects from hair restoration. Poor surgical techniques, recipient sites that are places too closely together that causes infection or too many grafts transplanted in one session or too many procedures performed in one session (for example if FUT and FUE are performed in the same session).

Necrosis can be completely avoided if all of the bases are covered before and during the hair transplant procedure to avoid any side effects hair restoration. It is crucial that the clinic ask the right questions about the health of the patients, such as health conditions and lifestyle. Also, it is important to have a surgeon that understands quality control of the procedure, and performs surgical techniques that lessen the chances of infection in the recipient area and any side effects hair restoration may cause.
