Hair Transplant Surgery & Rosacea
Prolonged redness is a very small possibility after a hair transplant. Let us review the most common causes of such redness.
Rosacea is a common cause of redness on caucasian patients, evidenced by four components:
- Adult acne
- Telengectasias- spider veins
- Rhinophyna- bumps and distortion if the nose
Rosacea can be treated and usually is treated with a topical cream or antibiotics. While treatment is important, underlying factors can aggravate rosacea such as:
- Excessive drinking
- Sun exposure
- Spicy foods
- Hot or cold showers
All of these situations dilate the blood vessels and thus aggravate rosacea.
When a patient has a transplant and rosacea is uncontrolled, it can be exacerbated by the hair transplant. But with treatment and control of the diet symptoms can be relieved and the redness will dissipate.
