Is a hair transplant painful?
Hair transplant pain is avoidable and rare. Read on to find out more.
Pain during the hair transplant operation
- During the follicular unit extraction from the donor region
- During the insertion of the grafts in the recipient region
- During the injection of a local anaesthetic
Anaesthetised in this way, the patient experiences the procedure completely without pain. Both the removal of the follicular units from the donor region, and the implantation with a hollow needle into the recipient region, are thus completely painless.
