There may be various reasons for having a side effect but it can be taken care of. Some of the top side effects of Hair transplant surgery are:

Though hair transplant is done to prevent hair loss, there is an initial shedding of transplanted hair. This takes place for a period of 2 to 3 weeks. During this period the roots become intact in the scalp and shed the hair to give way to new hair. If the hair loss remains consistent post 3 weeks you should consult the hair transplant surgeon.
Infections may happen in the case where the instruments used were not properly sterilized. This is a rare issue with experienced surgeons and hygienic hair transplant clinic. Surgeons provide prophylactic antibiotics to prevent any sort of infection.
Since this is an invasive procedure though minimal, there will be minor cuts here and there that will lead to some amount of blood loss. During the post-operative phase too you may face little blood oozing here and there. This can be taken care by pressing with a gauze piece.
Swelling is a temporary side effect that is seen in a majority of cases of Hair Transplant. Some people face swelling on the forehead while others have it on the face and around eyes. This subsides within a few days.
Temporary numbness is there due to local anesthesia. However, some people continue to face this numbness for up to few weeks. It is advisable to consult the doctor for getting comfort from this numbness.
