Hello,

Hair transplant surgery can last 6- 8 hours. No need to shave beforehand. New hair regrowth may take 3- 6 months. Complications of the surgery are minor like pain, swelling, bruising which are self-limited and resolve in a few days.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Hello,

For hair transplant, your existing hairs at the back of scalp will be used to plant new hairs at the front and top of the scalp. Besides the transplant, you also need to be on medical treatment i.e minoxidil 5% solution and finasteride tablet to preserve existing hairs.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Kakkar S., Dermatologist
