Why have hair transplants in Cancun?

Medical tourism is a growing industry in Mexico and as Cancun has been a favorite holiday destination for some time, it stands to reason that medical tourists are choosing to come here too. Renowned for its beautiful sandy beaches and surrounded by crystal-clear aqua water it is the perfect vacation getaway.

While hair transplantation is a surgical technique, it is not performed under a general anesthetic, and so there isn’t the associated downtime, i.e. grogginess, afterwards that accompanies general anesthetics. However, that isn’t to say you won’t feel any side-effects as the areas treated will be sore and tender for a few days after the treatment. Full sun to the treated areas will probably not be a good idea, but the cooling sea breezes after the sun goes down will provide a welcome respite.

There are several different technique for hair transplantation these days, and a good hair transplant specialist will be able to advise you on what is the right one for you.

What is involved in the procedure for a hair transplant?

As there are several different techniques, the time required may vary. Large transplants can take the best part of a day – up to around 8 hours – so be prepared to spend a long time sitting or lying down. A local anesthetic is administered by the treated areas will feel tender once this has worn off. The donor areas where the hair was taken from will feel sore and will eventually form scabs.

After a few days the areas will probably look worse than they feel and many people who have the procedure done at home are back at work within a few days.

The newly transplanted hair will drop out, which your surgeon will more than likely warn you about, but after a few months it will start to grow back.
