Do You Use Anesthesia During a Hair Transplant?October 5th, 2005
Q: Will I be unconscious during the hair transplant procedure and do you use general anesthesia?
A: All of the surgical hair restoration procedures at Bernstein Medical are performed under local anesthesia. The fact that general anesthesia is not needed is what makes hair transplant procedures – even though they are long – very safe.
Patients are given a sedative to help them relax, but they are not put to sleep. Most patients watch TV, see movies or just chat during the procedure.Related Posts:
