An FUE Hair Transplant procedure is not painful, at The Private Clinic we use local anaesthetic to numb the area before the treatment starts which may sting a little bit initially, but after a few minutes you will not feel any pain for the rest of the procedure. Patients describe an odd feeling during the procedure as you may be able to sense the surgeon working on your scalp and a slight rubbing sensation, but it is all definitely bearable and some patients even find themselves falling asleep during the procedure.
Post-procedure you may start to feel a little discomfort in the hours after the procedure as the local anaesthetic begins to wear off, but this is easily managed with pain killers. Any post-procedure discomfort should not last longer than a few days and you will be fine to return to work within a week once the redness and initial swelling has subsided.
We aim to provide all of our patients with outstanding care during their time spent here at The Private Clinic and making you feel comfortable and relaxed leading up to and during any procedure is our priority.
