Hair Transplant

FUE is the most developed method around the world.
Click below to read more about hair transplantation:

There is two major hair transplant technique:

  1. FUT: A part of your scalp is extracted. The donor area is then stitched. Several hair bunches (grafts) are created and they are grafted to where you want them.

What are the limitations of the hair transplantation?

Hair transplantation does not increase the total number of hairs on the scalp, cannot prevent future alopecia and is limited by available donor hair.

What I need to do after my operation?

Your surgeon will give you detailed instructions tailored for your situation. Please wait for these instructions to act, as yours may be different. But general guidelines that our surgeons are sharing with their patients is as follows:

  • You should not make any contact with the area of the transplantation. The grafts can be damaged easily even with little pressure or scratches. You should wear comfortable clothing such as shirts buttoned from the front. Protect your head while trespassing under a door and avoid sudden moves during sleep
  • In order to prevent the swelling on your forehead you should pick at least two pillows while sleeping. You should also avoid leaning forward (e.g. when using computer)
  • The continuation of the antibiotics and anti-swelling medication is essential
  • Your donor area dressing will be peeled off on the second day of your operation.
  • You will be instructed on how to wash your hair in the clinic
  • You should not try to remove the blood clots on the transplantation area after the shower
  • We do not recommend wearing a cap but if you insist on this due to appearance concerns, you should choose a cap that does not pressurize the transplantation area
  • You can touch your hair, get your hair cut, wear a cap and swim two weeks after surgery
  • Even if you use your medication regularly, there might be some swelling on your forehead in the first week. This will not cause any problems and will disappear later on. In order to speed up this process, you should reduce salt and flavor in your diet.
  • First month after the procedure, you will lose the hair that is transplanted onto your head. The growing period of your hair will be between 6-9 months. The initial growth will be thinner than your original hair but it will get thicker within a year
  • Systematic lack of iron, zinc, copper, selenium, Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, thyroid hormone dysfunction, smoking, diseases on hair skin (i.e. lichen) may affect hair transplantation negatively
What I need to do before my operation?

You will get a detailed customized list from your surgeon what to do and what not to do before the operation. Please wait for these instructions to act, as yours may be different. But here is a general guidance that our surgeons share with their patients:

  • You should inform your surgeon about your routine medication and health history
  • If you are taking any blood thinners, please let your surgeon know, as they may represent a contra-indication to surgery, you may need to stop their intake two weeks prior to your surgery
  • If you are taking broad beta-blockers, please contact your surgeon, you may need to stop intake two weeks prior to your hair transplantation
  • It is better to leave your hair long as your surgeon can trim it to the appropriate length in the morning of the hair transplantation
  • Do not take any Vitamin B or E for one week before your procedure. It holds for any multi vitamins that contain these vitamins
  • Do not take Aspirin or any other anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) for one week prior to your hair transplant procedure
  • Smoking may cause poor healing after a hair transplantation surgery and can increase the chance of infection and scarring. Smoking may also contribute to poor hair growth. Therefore you should stop smoking one week prior to surgery
  • Do not drink any alcoholic beverages at least three days prior to your hair transplantation procedure
  • You can take shower in the morning of your hair transplant procedure. Do not apply sprays, gels, or any other styling products to your hair
  • If you wear a hair system, please remove it prior to shampooing and do not wear it before your procedure
  • You should wear loose, comfortable clothing that does not need to be pulled on over your head
  • Please do not wear any cologne or perfume on the day of your hair transplantation procedure
  • Have breakfast in the morning of your procedure. If your surgery is scheduled for the afternoon, have a light lunch before you arrive
  • Do not drink coffee or any caffeinated beverages on the day of your procedure
  • You will be going to the hotel with a headband-type bandage. You may bring a light hat or bandana to cover the bandage so it will not be visible
What is the life of transplanted hair?

The roots that are extracted from your donor area will last for a lifetime after they are transplanted on your desired balding areas.

What would be my daily schedule for hair transplantation operations?

Although it may vary from patient to patient, here’s a typical daily schedule for hair transplantation operations:

First Day:

  • You arrive to airport and your driver will wait for you at the exit of custom zone with a tag with your name.
  • He will drive you to hospital and hand you to your patient representative who is fluent in your language.
  • After the initial registration procedure you will meet your doctor in person.
  • You will have your last checks to prepare you to hair transplantation.
  • Then your procedure will start and may last up to eight hours, operated under local anesthesia. Your hair transplant surgeon will operate the procedure with his crew. You should lie for up to four hours onwards and up to three and half hours backwards in order to have a successful root extraction and transplantation.
  • You will rest in your room in hotel.

2nd Day

  • You will visit the hospital again for final check-up including visual consultation, hair root check and removal of the dressing and washing.
  • Your doctor advises you further on medication including a special lotion and a shampoo and the types of activities you can get involved in over the course of your recovery period.
  • You will be ready to go back home after your second day.
When can I go out?

There is not a circumstance preventing you from going out after the operation. In the first couple of days there are tiny pink spots seen. These gradually fade away and become normal in a week.

When can I have a bath and what are the things with which I should be careful?

Generally after 3 days you can have a bath. Using special lotions and caring after the bath will be important and you medical team in the hospital will guide you through them.

When do the transplanted hairs appear?

They emerge as tiny particles 3 months after the operation date; they reach the normal length in approximately 6 months.

When will my new hair start to grow?

Your new hair roots will grow thinner and they are going to fall off within three months (usually in the first month). After this period, the transplanted grafts will be stronger and thicker.

Who perform the process and what are their experiences?

Hair transplantation is carried out under the supervision of plastic surgeons by the hair transplantation experts with least 10 years of experience. In medical operations surgeons, only do their core job where they are specialized. As an example in a hearth surgery assistants open the body and prepare everything for the job of the surgeon and then close it. In hair transplantation this is the same. The doctor defines the hairline and placements of the grafts, define the donor area and define the principles of the selection. An anesthetist performs the anesthesia. Then, hair transplantation experts perform the operation under close supervision of plastic surgeon.

Will I lose the transplanted hair?

Yes, transplanted hairs usually fall out after transplantation. But as with the transplantation new hair roots are created, new hair will grow back in the transplanted area.

Will my hair look natural after the transplantation?

This is the aim of our surgeons. Aftercare is also a key factor for success. Patients should follow the post-op instructions carefully for successful final results.

Would it be apparent that I had hair transplantation?

The transplanted hairs operated in a natural way. Thus at the first glance no one can understand this. As no cuts are made in FUE method no scarf will appear.
