New York Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Amiya Prasad has adapted his own concept of light intravenous sedation under local anesthesia used in cosmetic surgery to the face and eyes to hair restoration surgery. IV Sedation, when used during hair transplantation, helps to 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 more comfortability for the patient. The more hair grafts that take, the more successful the hair restoration.
