What are the side effects of hair transplant?

1)The most common after effect of hair transplant is swelling around the eyes and forehead which goes away in 2-3 days on its own. 

2)Pain also occurs in about 5% patients but in our center due to fine punch technique and medication for pain we are able to provide a painless procedure. 

3) Numbness is experienced in some cases. This goes away in 3-4 months when superficial nerves regenerate. 

4) Itching occurs in 10-15% cases. Itching occurs as the body releases histamines during the healing process. In case the patients experience severe itching then antihistamines can be taken. 

Other than this since hair transplant occurs in the superficial layers of the scalp it doesn’t cause any damage to underlying structures.
