The only problem one faces after transplant is mild pain and swelling. With regards to the permanent side effects, there are none. The only problem as with any surgical treatment is how much of scarring one develops post procedure. Since we use refined technologies, the growth in the front is hardly detectable. There is a small scar which develops at the3 back. Since we use trichophytic closure, even that scar is the small event that a the scar is visible, we can do a Follicular Unit Extraction of about 100 to 150 grafts and probably fill up the scar if it is visible. The scar if it is visible only if we shave your entire hair. Otherwise there is no scarring visible in a normal hair transplant surgery when the hairs are grown and the head is covered.
