Most of us long for healthy long hair. Everyone will agree that hair at the right place is an asset which enhances a person’s looks. Majority of us are scared of hair fall. Hair fall is scary and nobody wants to encounter it in their lifetime.


But everyone is not fortunate enough and may have to deal with premature balding. But the good news is that these people can handle this problem by having a hair transplant.


Many of you must have heard or read about hair transplants. Hair transplant is a surgical process to get back your lost hair. Like any other surgical procedure hair transplant also comes with some pros and cons.


The advantages are that it will get back your lost hair and looks. Hair fall/hair loss is a natural phenomenon, but hair transplant is exactly contrary to this natural process. Therefore certain precautions need to be taken before getting a hair transplant. Scarring, hyper pigmentation, pimples etc. are certain side effects of hair tranpslants.


Being a surgical procedure scaring around the area of transplant is quite obvious. Precautions are taken to minimize the scarring so that it is nearly invisible.


A person undergoing hair transplant should avoid exposure to direct sunlight as hyper pigmentation of the scar area is another complication.


In some cases, cysts and pimples may occur around the recipient area. As this is a cosmetic procedure these cysts and pimples should be treated with medications.


After a surgical procedure swelling and pain are common occurrences. This can happen in the case of hair transplant also.


So the patient should be mentally prepared before the hair transplant that there will be certain restrictions on his/her daily activities.
