Hair Transplant – Frequently Asked Questions

What is Hair Transplantation?

Hair transplantation is a process to restore which has been lost for various reasons with hair taken from the back of the neck.

Who can get a Hair Transplant?

Anyone who is suffering from extreme hair loss and has sufficient hair follicles for transplanting can get a hair transplant.

Which techniques are used for transplantation?

In hair transplantation, there are two methods: FUE and FUT. However, as it is more effective and reliable in terms of lasting results, FUE is the much more modern and natural method for hair transplantation.

How does FUE work?

Using the FUE method, hair follicles from the back of one’s neck are extracted and categorized in terms of their efficiency. Then, these categorized follicles are put into a solution until the operation time. Follicles are then transplanted with the help of surgical micro devices.

Is hair transplantation a painful process?

Before the operation starts, local anesthesia is used in order to reduce the pain. There will therefore be no pain during the procedure.

How long does it take for the operation?

It is dependent on the amount of follicles that will be transplanted during the operation. It can take roughly 3 to 8 hours. However, it is a one-day operation.

Will there be any scarring after the operation?

Thanks to the FUE method, there won’t be any scarring after the operation. At first, naturally, there will be red marks; however, these red marks will turn into scabs and completely disappear after a week.

Is it going to look natural?

In the FUE method, follicles planted into the skin are placed at a 30 degree angle. Thanks to this, hair will look natural.

Is the result permanent?

Yes, it is. Hairs in the back of the neck are highly resistant to falling out and that’s why this hair transplantation operation uses them.

When do I get to see the result of the operation?

In one week, scabs will start to dissipate. After this period, hair will start to grow. The most noticeable results will come within a year.

What about daily life after the transplantation?

If you want to hide the transplantation, you should take a week off, as there will be red marks and scabs in the week after the operation. If this doesn’t matter to you, you can continue your daily life as usual right after the operation.

What should I do after hair transplantation?

It is recommended you avoid sun in the first couple of days. Use hats. Also, the sea and pools are forbidden for the first two weeks.
