Minimizing post-operative swelling

in Hair

It's important that people know that hair transplantation is a procedure which is extremely safe. Moreover, if it is done under a prudent hair transplant surgeon in Los Angeles like Dr. Behnam, there's nothing for anyone to be scared of.

 

Hair transplantation is a procedure which doesn't require the patient to be hospitalized or be put under an IV or anesthesia. Normally, this procedure is conducted in a surgeon's office and almost always nothing ever goes wrong. In fact, post-surgical effects of hair transplantation do exist, but they are very minimal.

 

One of the most prominent post-surgical effects of hair transplantation can come to a patient in the form of swelling in areas like the face and around the eyes. Typically, swelling around the eye area can appear between the third and fifth day following the surgery. Swelling after hair transplantation can occur with both the follicle unit extraction method and the strip method.

 

Swelling basically is made up of liquids without color and they dissipate following a few days. However, some people can suffer unnecessary worries from it.

 

Post-operative swelling from hair transplant surgery can be avoided by several methods. Since Dr. Behnam is a hair transplant surgeon in Los Angeles who cares for his patients' worries, he provides them prednisone for five days to alleviate the swelling. Furthermore, patients are advised to sleep in a half upright position for the first four days following surgery as well. As a result, the fluid which causes the swelling does not get drained around the eye area but the neck.

 

The above mentioned two techniques to alleviate post operative swelling are two of the most effective methods in use in the hair care field. As a result of their use, many people have been benefited and they have been able to have a worry and risk free recovery from hair transplantation surgery.
