Aftercare Risks & Morbidity/Mortality - Hair Transplantation

The areas involved in transplantation may need to be bandaged overnight. People can return to normal activities within a day. Strenuous activities should be avoided in the first few days after the surgery. On rare occasions, the implants can be ejected...

from the scalp during vigorous exercise. There may be some swelling, bruising, headache, and discomfort around the graft areas and around the eyes. These symptoms can usually be controlled with a mild pain reliever such as aspirin. Scabs may form at the graft sites and should not be scraped off. There may be some numbness at the sites, but it will diminish within two to three months.


Although there are rare cases of infection or scarring, the major risk is that the grafted area might not look the way the patient expected it to look.

Normal results

The transplanted hair will fall out within a few weeks; however, new hair will start to grow in the graft sites within about three months. A normal rate of hair growth is about 0.25-0.5 in (6-13 mm) per month.


Major complications as a result of hair transplantation are extremely rare. Occasionally, a person may have problems with delayed healing, infection, scarring, or rejection of the graft; but these are uncommon.
