Do I have to pay for follow up visits?
No. All of Dr. Behnam’s follow up visits are complimentary.
Will I have any swelling in my face after hair transplantation?
Dr. Behnam has fine tuned the process of hair restoration. He has modified the techniques to minimize swelling around the face after hair transplantation. Dr. Behnam uses a special tape that prevents swelling from draining down around your eyes. Below is a picture of a gentleman one day after a 2515 grafts hair transplant session. Please notice the tape on the forehead. This prevents the swelling from draining down to the eyes. It will then get reabsorbed.
