Hair Transplant Surgery Pain

Local anaesthesia is used to numb various areas of your scalp to prevent pain, but general anaesthesia is not used so you will be awake throughout hair transplant surgery. The injections into the scalp may be painful, but the surgery itself does not hurt. You will feel tugging or pulling sensations around your head. After the surgery, some pain should be anticipated but it varies from patient to patient and if it is too extreme you can get a prescription for medication to control the pain. After about a day or two you should be able to resume normal daily life activities and tasks. If you have had micrografting and do not have dissolvable sutures then they can be removed after two weeks. You should plan on taking about a week off from work or other public activities as you will have swelling and scabbing which will alter you’re appearance for up to 10 days.
