PAINLESS AND PAINLESS HAIR TRANSPLANTATION
Hair transplantation is a procedure that is commonly performed with local anesthesia. Pain during the application of local anesthesia and prolonged lying are the most common complaints of patients. To eliminate these unpleasant effects, sedation is very beneficial. Sedation is the intravenous drug delivery process, which is performed by an anesthesiologist, consisting of a combination of analgesic (painkiller) and sedative (relaxing) drugs.
When the patient who will undergo hair transplantation and sedation comes to our center, he is examined by our anesthesiologist, and the procedure is started by taking the necessary tests. Then, our patient is taken to the operation room and sedated by an anesthesiologist in a very safe environment.
After the application, the patient does not feel the unpleasant effects of local anesthesia at the beginning of the procedure, which creates a slight sleepiness and a feeling of relaxation.
