Pain thresholds vary from person to person, therefore it’s difficult to pinpoint an exact pain level for this procedure.
hair transplants are carried out under local anaesthetic, which means you will be awake and free to talk to your surgeon but you won’t feel a thing throughout the procedure. When the anaesthetic is injected into the scalp it might sting a little but it is bearable and goes numb very quickly.
This pain also depends on the technique which used in hair transplantation.
Overall, when it comes to hair transplants the pain and discomfort you might experience are minimal and relatively short lived as the procedures and recovery times are generally quick. For most of our patients, this is a small price to pay for restoring their hair and their confidence.
