FUE Hair Transplant surgery is a very safe procedure that is performed regularly at The Private Clinic without any significant complications. Of course with any type of surgery or procedure there are risks such as; infection, swelling, bleeding, numbness, scarring, itching and loss of grafts.
As the placement incisions are so small, the risk of post-operative infection is very low. You will likely experience some redness and maybe some slight swelling in the treatment area immediately after treatment, but this will subside after two to four days.
You may experience some bleeding post-procedure and we advise keeping your head elevated and placing gauze over the area with applied pressure. Temporary numbness is common and can last for 3 to 18 weeks it does not usually affect you too much and it is very rare for it to be permanent.
At The Private Clinic we like you to be as informed as possible about your procedure so a full list of complications and risks will be discussed at your consultation with your expert surgeon to ensure that you are well aware and understand the procedure fully before going ahead with hair transplant surgery.
