Hair transplant is a surgical procedure to increase the density of one’s hair, or to restore the hairline by transplanting hair into a certain area. It is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments today, preferred by both men and women.
Before a hair transplant in Turkey, you need to determine your concern with your hair first. Do you want your hair to look less balded on one specific area? Do you want to have a hairline that’s lower? If you are not sure, your hair transplant specialist can help you with it. Once the issue is determined, the specialist will examine your hair to see which area is the most suitable to be the donor area. Most of the time it is the back of the scalp, which is the area where the follicles are the strongest.
Before the operation, you will need to avoid caffeinated beverages and medications that have a blood thinning effect. On the day of the operation, you can have a breakfast and head to the clinic.
Hair transplant in Turkey is performed with two different techniques; DHI Hair Transplant and FUE Hair Transplant. A DHI hair transplant is a more advanced technique, where the specialist uses a special pen to collect the follicles. Then, with the same tool, the specialist can transplant the follicles easily. In a FUE hair transplant, on the other hand, the specialist collects the follicles one by one from the donor area. When the desired amount of follicles are grafted, they are transplanted into the recipient area through small channels.
The whole operation generally takes around 5-6 hours depending on the amount of the grafts to be transplanted. It is done under local anesthesia, and on an outpatient basis.
Like all surgical procedures, hair transplant in Turkey comes with some risks. These risks can be listed as:
3. Swelling and/or redness
4. Unsatisfactory results
Hair transplant surgery is performed under local anesthesia. So, the patient will feel no pain during the procedure. Once the operation is complete and the effect of the anesthesia wears off, the patient might feel a bit sore and swollen, which is totally normal and is expected to get better gradually.
It is common to experience temporary hair loss after a hair transplant procedure. This is known as "shock loss" and occurs due to trauma to the scalp during the procedure. The shock loss usually occurs within the first few weeks after the procedure and the hair regrows on its own within a few months. However, if you have concerns about your hair loss or the regrowth process, it is always best to consult with your hair transplant surgeon.
