What are the risks or potential side effects of hair restoration?

Written by Danielle R.Last Updated 5/14/2024

Any surgical procedure carries risks, but you can reduce your chance of risk by working with a skilled and reputable physician. Your physician will typically prescribe anti-inflammatory medication and antibiotics to help avoid potential inflammation or infection following the procedure.

Generally, the potential side effects associated with hair transplants are minor but can take up to three weeks to clear up. These potential side effects can include bleeding, crusting, numbness, scarring, redness, ingrown hairs, and swelling on the scalp.

You may also experience bruising and itching following the procedure. After the procedure, you should also anticipate shedding from the transplanted grafts—this is typical and you can expect to see new hair growth in these areas within 6-9 months following the procedure.
