Complications of hair transplantation (problems that may be encountered)

Hair transplantation is a relatively safe surgery and is associated with very few complications. It is a cosmetic surgery, therefore complications should be evaluated by considering the social and spiritual side of the patient. Every hair transplant surgeon should be aware of possible complications and techniques for the prevention and techniques of its management. Multiple complications can be prevented and minimized with proper surgical technique and wound care.

Careful screening of the patient is extremely valuable to avoid dissatisfaction and unrealistic expectations. Complications can be avoided with careful planning and application by the surgeon and the group.
