Can Hair Transplant Go Wrong?
Hair transplant is a surgical procedure performed by the surgeon. It works by moving the healthy follicular units from the back of your head to the affected area. The same follicles will grow new hair there for the rest of our life. That’s why hair transplant can deliver a permanent result. In fact, hair surgery is the only permanent solution to the pattern baldness by far.
Hair transplant is completely safe as long as performed by professional surgeons in a standardized procedure. However, many people wonder the possibilities of why hair transplant is bad in some cases even though it’s very rare. Actually, there are some possibilities where why hair transplant is bad or fail.
1. Insufficient Hair Donor
The major reason why hair transplant is bad or failed is that you don’t have sufficient hair donor supply. It’s also related to your expectation as a more relevant evaluation should refer to the possible restoration plan. The surgeon will propose the pan based on the hair donor availability. They’ll present you the possible restoration to cover the affected area. When you expect the result more than it should be, you may get disappointed.
2. Surgery Assistants
Another possibility of why hair transplant is bad related to the incompetent surgery assistants including technicians and nurses. They might help the surgeon in the grafting process including dividing and storing the follicles. Bad handling on hair follicles can cause them damaged or dead and make them disable to grow new hair once transplanted. Credible surgeons usually work with best teams, so you can soothe yourself.
3. Invasive Procedure
Follicular Unit Transplantation(FUT) or strip method seems to have a higher risk of why hair transplant is bad due to the invasive procedure. the surgeon harvest the follicles by taking a strip of skin from the donor area. The surgeon will stitch the donor area. It has a higher risk of haemorrhage or bleeding. You’ll have to deal with painful recovery and some other issues. Above all, it generates a linear scarring which is visible with a short haircut. Follicular Unit Extraction(FUE) is now widely suggested due to a less invasive procedure.
4. Side Effects
Many people consider why hair transplant is bad as they refer to the side effects. Some common side effects including itchiness, cysts, edema, swelling, hiccups, shedding, tenderness, numbness, and so forth. These are actually the normal post-procedure side effects which only last temporarily not strictly explain why hair transplant is bad for sure.
