Compensation for Hair Transplant Injuries

They type of hair that we have is generally pre-determined in our genetics and in many situations this can leave us with a beautiful mane of hair, or in some situations none at all. In addition, over time as you age your hair can start to thin out and in some situations it may fall out altogether leaving a person bald, in this situation they may consider a hair transplant to replace the hair that has been lost.

Hair transplants are fairly recent technology and can be quite expensive in many situations, but regardless of the cost, for some people they seem to be a clear option when it comes to getting their beloved hair back. Like any type of transplant or operation however they do not come without their risks and when it comes to hair transplants if you are left with an injury or medical problem as the result of negligence then you could make a claim for compensation. 

What is a Hair Transplant?

Hair transplants can work in a number of ways, but in general they involve moving live hair follicle cells from one area of the body to another, or in some cases from a hair donor to another person. These cells are then implanted into the head and allowed to grow as normal hair would. In many circumstances if successful, these hair transplants allow the person to continue to grow long, healthy hair as if it were their own.

Hair transplants are not only reserved for the head area, they can be used in almost any area of the body where a person may have lost their hair through unforeseen circumstances. This can include the eyebrows, arms or legs. 

What could go wrong?

When it comes to hair transplants there are certain risks involved and these include:

  • Thinning – if the procedure is not performed correctly it could cause the hair to thin which could immediately result in bald patches or a failure of the transplant
  • Infection – if the transplant is not performed correctly then it could leave the open wounds at risk of an infection
  • Hair loss – it could result in more hair loss down the track which could leave the patient with bald patches
  • Irritation – it could cause irritation to the area including rashes, swelling and burning symptoms as a result.
