Hair transplant is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that allows individual hair follicles from a donor site to a recipient site on a patient’s body. This is used primarily to treat male baldness but can also be used to restore eyelashes and brows or to fill in scars caused by surgery or accidents.

It is important to keep in mind that each person is different and that your results may vary.
After a hair transplant procedure, a patient’s scalp has a tendency to be very tender. One may need to take pain medication to help with any pain or discomfort caused by the surgery. In addition, your surgeon may prescribe anbiotics or anti inflammatory drugs to be taken after the surgery. The estimated recovery time is between 2 to 5 days.
