General Information about Hair Transplantation in Turkey

During a hair transplantation procedure, patients may experience some discomfort or mild pain, but it is typically well-managed with local anesthesia. The level of pain can vary from person to person, and surgeons take measures to minimize any potential discomfort.

Hair transplantation procedures typically take place in a specialized clinic or a surgical facility equipped for such procedures. It’s important to choose a reputable and qualified surgeon for the operation.

After a hair transplant, you can expect some discomfort, swelling, and redness around the transplanted area. It’s common to experience mild pain, but your surgeon may prescribe medication to manage it. Follow post-operative care instructions, avoid touching or scratching the area, and sleep with your head elevated to minimize swelling. Overall, individual experiences vary, so consult your surgeon for personalized guidance.

Typically, after a hair transplantation, you’ll be advised to wait a day or two before washing your hair. When you do start washing, use a mild, non-medicated shampoo recommended by your surgeon. Gently lather the shampoo with your fingertips, avoiding direct pressure on the transplanted area. Rinse carefully, and pat your hair dry instead of rubbing. Follow any specific instructions given by your surgeon for optimal care during the post-transplant period.

It is common for the transplanted hair to shed within the first few weeks after a hair transplantation. This is a normal part of the process as the transplanted follicles enter a resting phase before regrowth. Don’t be alarmed; it’s temporary, and new hair should start to grow in the following months. Your surgeon will provide guidance on what to expect during the post-operative period.

Hair transplant results vary, but you may start to see initial growth within a few months. However, it can take around 6 to 12 months for more noticeable results as the transplanted hair gradually thickens and matures. Patience is key, and the final outcome may continue to improve over the course of a year or more. Regular follow-ups with your surgeon can help track progress and address any concerns.

It’s generally advised to avoid strenuous exercise for the first week or two after a hair transplantation to minimize the risk of complications. Sweating and increased blood flow to the scalp can be counterproductive during the initial healing phase. Consult with your surgeon for personalized recommendations, but in general, it’s best to gradually resume exercise based on their guidance.

After a hair transplantation, follow these general post-operative measures:

1. Avoid touching: Refrain from touching or scratching the transplanted area to prevent infection and disruption of grafts.

2. Gentle washing: Use a mild, recommended shampoo, and follow your surgeon’s instructions for washing. Be gentle, and avoid direct pressure on the transplanted area.

3. Medications: Take prescribed medications as instructed by your surgeon to manage pain, prevent infection, and promote healing.

4. Avoid strenuous activities: Steer clear of intense physical activities, including heavy lifting and vigorous exercise, for at least the first week or as advised by your surgeon.

5. Protect from sun and wind: Shield your head from direct sun exposure and strong winds, especially during the initial healing phase.

6. Sleep with head elevated: Sleep with your head elevated for the first few nights to minimize swelling.

7. Follow-up appointments: Attend scheduled follow-up appointments with your surgeon for assessments and any necessary adjustments to your post-operative care.

Always consult with your surgeon for personalized guidance based on your specific case and the type of hair transplant procedure you underwent.

The area from which hair follicles are collected for transplantation is known as the donor area. The most common donor area is the back or sides of the scalp, where hair follicles are genetically resistant to the hormone responsible for hair loss.

After the hair follicles are extracted, the donor area is closed, typically leaving a linear scar if the Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) method is used. With the newer Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique, individual follicles are harvested, leaving tiny, scattered, dot-like scars that are often less noticeable.

The healing process in the donor area varies among individuals. In many cases, the surrounding hair in the donor area continues to grow, and the overall impact on appearance is generally minimal. Before undergoing a hair transplant, discuss the specific details of the donor area healing process, scarring, and potential outcomes with your surgeon.
