Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at Healthcaremagic
You won’t die during a FUE hair transplant.
There are no major risks involved.
If you have diabetes or hypertension that needs to be under control before FUE.
As far as anaesthesia is concerned local anaesthesia via frontal block is given on the scalp.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
