We give our patients local anesthesia during the surgery. We inject liquid hemostasis medications to stop the bleeding, and we also inject physiological saline solutions to raise the skin.
The saline solutions help raise the skin slightly and this makes it easier to remove the donor hairs.
These solutions flow in the direction of gravity. Even when there is a move of one degree, the solutions move down in that direction. If the patient bows their head, the liquids will move down to the front of the head, and this might cause some discomfort.
Because of this we advise our patients not to bow their heads in the first 4-5 days’ post-surgery.
