How long does the surgery take?

Dependent on the intricacy and magnitude of the condition, the operation might take somewhere between about 10 to 12 hours, while no two operations are exactly the same of course. Some FUE procedures can be done in multiple sessions lasting 2 to 4 hours. Since Dr. Vinay only sees a single patient each day, we aren't ever rushed. Occasionally, the day takes on its own speed, and we just follow the tempo that makes the greatest outcomes. Above everything else, the prime results for your hair are what we keep in mind when doing our work.

Dr. Vinay will have to buzz the back of the scalp as well as the sides of your head in order to harvest your hair transplants unless you are employing Discrete FUE or long hair FUE procedure. The crown of your head, in which the grafts will be implanted, does not have to be shaved or buzzed. The presence of your hairs aids in determining the direction in which your hair transplants should be implanted. All of our clients receive a hair cut prior to their operation at Northwestern Hair.

Hair follicles are not harmed by local anaesthetic applied by Dr. Vinay. Nevertheless, they are frequently used with "Adrenalin," a hormone that reduces blood vessels and prevents bleeding throughout hair transplant procedures. Hair transplantation lacking adrenaline may result in hemorrhage. Local anesthetic with adrenaline may restrict blood flow to the follicles. This is the primary reason why any hair transplant procedure should only be performed by a skilled hair transplant surgeon. Northwestern Hair will be able to strike a balance between the two and provide appropriate local anaesthetic without causing excessive blood loss or reduction.

Hair transplants won't be painful at all. At worse, you may experience some soreness or pain where the FUE transplant is.The pain and soreness will go away in a short period of time. Yet, rest assured that it's all part of the process performed by Dr. Vinay Rawlani. All hair transplants will be worth it when they're done by one of the best hair restoration doctors in Chicago.

On the day of your procedure, you will be seen by a hair restoration specialist for an initial consultation and evaluation. We will then discuss with you the potential risks and benefits associated with the procedure, as well as any pre-procedure instructions that may need to be followed.

The length of your hair replacement procedure will depend on your individual needs and requirements. If you want to make a change to your hairline or bald spot, then it can be done in one session or multiple sessions depending on how much work needs to be done.
