If you are experiencing excessive hair shedding, miniaturisation, and patches of baldness, it’s time to consult a hair restoration specialist at Eugenix Hair Sciences. Their experts will suggest the best way to course-correct your hair loss and suggest the number of grafts required for a seamless hair transplantation.

Prevention Of Hair Transplant Infection

A hair transplant is a minimally-invasive procedure when done at a world-renowned clinic. Therefore, it’s of utmost importance to do a thorough research before going ahead with a hair transplantation clinic. After all, your donor area is limited and it’s best to use it wisely instead of having to go through a corrective hair transplant procedure later on in life.

At Eugenix, their founders have pioneered the Direct Hair Transplant (DHT) technique which significantly reduces the “out of the body” time of grafts, thereby significantly improving their survival rate.

They also have a dedicated post-surgery care team to help guide the patient after the procedure is complete. Their representatives follow-up with the patient every day for seven days after the surgery, and remind the patient to apply an antibiotic ointment and Betadine solution on the donor area and spray saline water on the transplanted area to avoid the possible risk of infection.

Patients are also advised to wear a loose surgical cap when outside and use a neck pillow while sleeping. The post-surgery care team regularly calls the patient for up to five years after their procedure at Eugenix.

Signs Of A Possible Hair Transplant Infection

The possibility of getting a hair transplant infection is low. Still, there are significant signs to look out for if you feel that you may have a hair transplant infection.

Some of the most common signs of a hair transplant infection include

  • Intense pain on the scalp
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Severe swelling at the infected site
  • Intense itching and redness
  • Delayed healing

If you experience any or all of these symptoms, contact your hair restoration specialist or an emergency doctor at the earliest.

The best way to avoid getting a hair transplant infection is by steering clear of hair mills, and by getting the procedure done at an established clinic with expert technicians and surgeons. If you aren’t sure about a clinic, it’s better to take your time to find the right place rather than do the surgery in a hurry.
