I wasn’t implying the pain was pure torture only that it is painful. And there are some doctors who advertise HT as a day in the water park like it’s such a wonderful experience with no pain or discomfort involved.
Getting a HT involves pain. Period. End of story. The numbing process itself is painful when a needle is stuck in your scalp in hundreds of different spots in order to numb the areas. This is especially true in the frontal areas of your scalp. Okay? It’s painful.
Then you better hope that all areas were sufficiently numbed because if they weren’t, and this happens, you’re going to really feel some pain. This is no fault of any doctor and certainly doesn’t imply incompetency. Rather, it’s simply sometimes not possible to always know ALL areas are sufficiently numbed.
So, you’re right, it’s not pure torture, but getting a HT is not a day at the water park, and anyone who portrays it to be is lying to you!
There are, however, plenty of water parks in the state of FL you could visit after you get your hair transplant.
