Is anesthesia necessary for hair transplant surgery?

Question:
Is anesthesia necessary for hair transplant surgery? Does the needle go right into your head?

Answer:
Anesthesia is used during hair transplantation to allow for patient comfort. There are multiple forms of anesthesia that can be used. Usually, a combination of oral sedation with local injection anesthesia into the scalp is enough to provide comfort. Intravenous sedation can also be used.
