Is Hair Transplant Painful?

Is Hair Transplant Painful?


Hair transplant is one of the most preferred treatment methods in the field of aesthetics, especially in recent times. There is no difference in preference between men and women. But in general, men experience hair loss problems more than women. For this reason, most of the time, hair transplant is applied to men.


Hair is one of the most important factors for the appearance of both women and men. A hair transplant is not considered a surgical operation. However, it is done under anesthesia. This brings to mind the question of whether is it a painful procedure or not. Since hair transplantation is generally performed with anesthesia, it is not possible to feel pain and ache. As Pure Line Clinic ®, we perform the hair transplantation process perfectly for our patients.

Is Pain and Aching Feeling Experienced After Hair Transplant Procedure?

Hair transplantation takes an average of 5 to 6 hours. We take the hair from the area where healthy hair is located on the upper part of the nape. Then, we transfer the healthy hair grafts to the sparse area. Since anesthesia will be applied during the procedure, no pain is felt. However, even if rare, a headache may occur after the procedure. This is extremely normal. It is also expected. In the following days, our patients quickly go through the recovery process.

Which Anesthesia Technique is Used in Hair Transplantation?

The hair transplantation is frequently preferred by both women and men. However, people always have the question of whether they feel pain during the procedure. Hair transplant operation is generally performed under local anesthesia.

Is There Any Pain and Pain During Local Anesthesia?

Hair transplant operation is often a comfortable procedure for the patient. In this way, we complete the operation under extremely comfortable conditions without the feeling of pain. We apply local anesthesia under the skin by using a thin needle. There may be a slight stinging sensation while the needle is being inserted.

Are There Any Other Methods Other Than Local Anesthesia in Hair Transplant?

Apart from local anesthesia in hair transplant, we can also perform this operation by using sedation anesthesia depending on the request of our patients. The patient, for whom we perform this procedure, called sedation anesthesia, is not fully asleep. However, they do not feel any process from the beginning to the end.

Sedation is one of the anesthesia techniques that can be used as successfully as general anesthesia and can be used very comfortably in hair transplant operations. As Pure Line Clinic ®, we perform our operations in line with the wishes and expectations of our patients.
