Hello, Dr. Sachin, thank you for your youtube videos on topics of hair loss and hair transplant. I have seen your youtube videos and those are very informative. Yesterday I have seen your video on FUE hair transplant called how to choose best hair transplant clinic or surgeon and one more video of Dr Dhananjay Chavan on all about FUE hair transplant. I have grade 5 baldness at least that's what been told by a doctor with whom I got a consultation. and I am planning to do hair transplant and most probably FUE hair transplant. but please tell me is it very painful? because I am afraid of pain and avoid taking injections also. please guide me on this sir. thanking you in anticipation!
First of all, thank you for the appreciation of videos, appreciation by patients like you encourage us to make more educative videos for patients, and finding time between our busy schedule to shoot videos on common questions asked by patients.
Now back to your question. Currently worldwide in the cosmetic medicines or aesthetic surgery field, FUE hair transplant is the gold standard procedure these days for hair transplant. I perform around 45 surgeries in a month and every almost every patient ask me this question whether this is painful or not?
There are two steps in FUE hair transplant where little bit invasive method is used:
During these steps listed above with some instrument, we puncture the skin of your scalp after proper planning and designing. during extraction, we remove grafts from your donor area i.e back of the scalp and beard with the help of small rotor machine ( this is a very crucial procedure it need planning and marking, exactly from where grafts should be taken and all) in the step of punching, hair transplant surgeon makes slits on the scalp with proper angle and in the shape of designed hairline ( this is the most crucial factor in successful natural looking hair transplant). during implanting process we put all those grafts harvested during extraction in the slits we made in pushing step.

when we will perform all those steps then you won't even feel because we use the perfect local anesthetic procedure with following steps,
- Anesthesia is given by surgeon only, not by the technician.
- We use perfect anesthesia formulation.
- We administer the anesthesia at a perfect location.
- We use best tumescent fluid injection machine.
So whatever little bit discomfort you will experience that will be only during anesthesia procedure. after anesthesia, our patients take long relaxing nap listening to soothing music of patients own choice and we perform the surgery. sometimes patient even snore. ( no this is not general anesthesia, you are well oriented to time and place, but it's just my soothing operative hand and good retro music and sometimes best food provided in our setup.) Here is video of my patient who actually shares his feeling about HairMD and its environment on the surgery day.
This how we enjoy on the patient's surgery day. Why don't you come for consultation, so that I can solve your more doubts.
