Title: A Brief Guide About Infected Hair Transplant

(No Transcript)
  • As hair transplants are surgeries, you must
    expect wounds. And wounds are very likely to get
    infected. Infections can occur for many reasons,
    starting from the weather of your living place to
    your hygiene.
  • Many patient concerns about the risk and hazards
    of infection for overall operating performance.
    The possibility of hair transplantation is an
    intrinsic fear of any treatment. We find
    ourselves looking for advice on keeping the wound
    clean, whether small or large, a piercing or a
  • However, there are several perhaps less serious
    and mandible complications. Complications include
    pain, oedema, asymmetry, bleeding and so on.
    Additional less common postoperative
    complications include hypertrophic and keloid
    scarring, arteriovenous infection and fistula.
  • In this article, we have arranged the pieces of
    information about Infected Hair Transplant. These
    pieces of information will help you a lot to keep
    yourself safe from these infections. Lets get

Types of Hair Transplants
Follicular unit extraction (FUE) Method
  • There are three types of hair transplant methods.
    The best option for you will depend on your
    individual needs and the recommendations of your
    physician. Lets get to know them
  • To extract follicles from the donor area, the
    doctor will use a small punching instrument.
  • Although it also creates a scar, it will be less
    visible, and the individual wont usually need
    stitches. FUE includes extracting the hair
    follicles from a donors site and transferring
    them to form a more extensive, natural hairline.
  • This approach removes longitudinal scars and
    specialised treatment of the wound, while the
    detailed FUE procedures take time in surgery. FUE
    also tends to minimise downtimes and pain after
    the treatment.

2. Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) Method
  • The FUT hair transplantation procedure involves
    removing a strip of skin from the donors hair
    follicles site, usually the back of your head.
    This skin is removed and primed for
    transplantation in small groups of tissue
    containing hair follicles.
  • A surgeon removes a skin strip from the back or
    side of his head during FUT surgery and extracts
    individual hair follicles. The follicles are then
    incorporated into your scalps balding areas. The
    easiest way to cover a hairline affected by
    masculine style shallowness is to go through
  • Usually, FUT is less costly than the FUE phase
    that is similar.

3. Follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS) Method
  • In this method, the surgeon takes a skin strip
    from the donor region and stitches the incision.
    A microscope can separate the donor skin and
    position them on the target region into small
    follicular units containing one or more hair
  • It consists of a procedure in which a thin strip
    of healthy hair-bearing skin is collected and
    moved from a permanent region of the scalp to
    an area of hair loss (non-permanent). FUSS needs
    medium ability, which takes less than FUSS but
    notes that FUSS will yield excellent outcomes if
    the surgeon has advanced professional expertise.

Infection After Hair Transplant
  • The risk of infection is a fear inherent to every
    procedure, regardless of whether small or large,
    perforating or operating. As a patient, we use
    the internet to receive recommendations on the
    protection of complex microbial organisms. Small
    injuries cause hair transplants, in particular
    the FUE, to be considered microsurgery.
  • However, this does not mean you are free of risk,
    as you know which other micro-sizes are
    available. Bacteria. Bacteria. There is a risk of
    infection where there are wounds. Fortunately,
    the threat of hair transplant infection can be
    dealt with! Read the article after surgery to
    protect your scalp and hair.

Possibility of Infection from Hair Restoration
  • The risk of infection during hair transplant
    operation and after the procedure is relatively
    low due to modern surgical techniques and
    technology developments. That being said, there
    is no eliminated chance of infection. The risk of
    infection following an operation is always a
    minor one. Here you should know everything about
    infected hair transplant.
  • Fortunately, a lot can be done to avoid infection
    and control infections. Proper infection
    prevention treatment may protect a hair
    transplantation site and graft area from harm and
    lead to reliable results.

To avoid infections
Avoid Dusty Places
  • Keep these things in mind to avoid to prevent
    yourself from getting infections in the first
  • A patient can return to work after the procedure
    during a hair transplant operation. It can vary,
    however, depending on the style of work and
    health. If dirt and bacteria are exposed during
    your job, stop going to the workplace for two
  • Likewise, dont carry out daily activities that
    will take two weeks to touch the soil. Report it
    to the doctor immediately if you suffer from
    discomfort, redness or swelling during the

Avoid Exercise
Avoid Swimming
  • It is only after one month that patients are
    recommended to return to the gym. Any workout
    that strains or sweats the body should be
    avoided. The risk of scalp infection is increased
    by sweating. This also means that you must stop
    going under the sun or doing sex.
  • Following a month of hair transplantation, you
    will go to the beach. The pools chlorinated
    water will damage the greased follicles. Public
    beaches are packed with foreign bacteria, often
    an infection vector. Make sure that you stay away
    from them. Make sure you consult your doctor
    beforehand if you are confused about going

Avoid touching the scalp
Avoid smoking or drinking
  • The skin is surrounded by micro-scars after hair
    transplantation, creating routes for germs, and
    should be avoided regularly. We use them to hit
    all things full of microorganisms. We are the
    dirtiest body component of our hands.
  • The germ collection is moved to the micro-scar if
    you put your hand on the scalp. Therefore, only
    if your hands are sanitised and purified you can
    touch the scalp.
  • You know, cigarettes and alcoholic drinks are
    never successful at medications cigarette
    smoking and alcohol delays the process of
    wound-healing. You should not drink or smoke
    anything because the risk of infection is

Caring for your scalp after surgery
  • Your scalp may be slightly painful immediately
    following the procedure. Your health professional
    will prescribe medicines for pain or suggest pain
    relief medications on a routine basis. Tylenol or
    Advil, for example. After the procedure, bandages
    should be kept for several days.
  • To reduce the risk of infection, proper washing,
    and wound treatment should be fully explained.
    To prevent infection and reduce swelling,
    antibiotics, and anti-inflammatory drugs may be
    prescribed. In a week to 10 days, stitches will
    likely be removed.

Some Important FAQS
How much does 1500 hair grafts cost?
Is there any disadvantage of a hair transplant?
  • We assume you may have confusions after the above
    discussion. So we have gathered a few question
    and answers which may help you to understand the
    discission better.
  • You will get 9,225, or around the national
    average of a NeoGraft hair transplant, for 1,500
    grafts and 5,925 for the same number of grafts.
  • You may feel numbness or loss of feeling in the
    scalp areas that were under treatment. Hair
    follicles known as folliculitis may face
    inflammation or infection shock loss or sudden
    but usually temporary hair loss.

Can you be too bald for a hair transplant?
Can you do FUE after FUT?
Do FUE scars fade?
  • Unfortunately, hair transplantation is not
    feasible if bald. A transplant of hair is
    groundbreaking therapy, but not magic. In brief,
    the procedure operates by extracting and
    transplanting hair follicles from one section of
    the scalp to another.
  • After you have had FUT surgery, you can have an
    FUE hair transplant. Both procedures should not,
    however, be carried out in sequence. That is a
    mistake. So, you must be careful for at least
    10-12 months if you are looking at FUE hair
    transplantation after FUT surgery.
  • FUE scars will dissipate with time, but they will
    remain the same size, and youll always see
    scarring if you wear your hair short.

Final Words
  • As we mentioned at the beginning of our article,
    if you are going to have surgery, you must expect
    scar and potential infections from those scars,
    not necessarily if you maintain a hygienic life
    after the procedure. Still, there is always some
    level of risk.
  • We have arranged an easy to understand guide to
    help you with the infection you could have after
    hair transplantation. We hope it will help you
    to prevent the infection in the first place.
  • We hope you have enjoyed reading through the
