IV Sedation During Hair Transplant Process
New York Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Amiya Prasad and Hair Restoration Specialist Dr. Gary Hitzig combine their approaches and introduce the concept of performing more effective hair transplant surgery with light intravenous sedation under local anesthesia.
IV Sedation, when used during hair transplantation, helps to relax the hair transplant patient and regulate the patients’ blood pressure which reduces an effect known as “popping”, in which the scalp bleeds during hair transplant surgery. IV Sedation reduces bleeding during the hair transplant, which allows the grafts to be placed easier, thus the donor hairs are out of the body for less time, thus increasing the effectiveness of the hair transplant results. This safe method of hair transplant using IV sedation yields is greater hair density because there are less complications and is more comfortable for the patient. The more hair grafts that take, the more successful the hair restoration.
