Hair transplant procedure does not harm the nerve endings on the scalp at all. We currently used the latest method in hair transplants which is the FUE method. In FUE method we do not use bistoury, lancet or knives, and therefore the nerve endings are not damaged. It goes without saying that the operation has to be performed by skilled and experienced.
Hair follicles are extracted one by one during the hair transplant, and therefore, they are not harmed. The patients get back their senses the day after their surgery or in 3-5 days after it. The numbness completely goes away. The hair transplant procedure does not harm the nerve endings on the scalp, and has no cons.
