What is Hair Transplantation?
Planning in hair transplant operations is completely personalized. Tissue transplantation of healthy hair follicles that do not shed on the upper part of the nape, using different methods, to the open areas on the scalp, or to the completely opened area is called hair transplantation.
The area where the roots are collected is a kind of safe area that is coded not to fall out from birth. In cases where the hair follicles on the nape are not sufficient, hair follicles can be taken from the ear, back or chest, and sowing can be done.
Hair transplantation can be applied not only to male pattern hair loss, but also to areas such as cavities formed after trauma or disease, scars, burn marks and post-operative suture marks.
Hair transplant operation is an operation performed with microsurgical methods under local anesthesia. For this reason, it must be done under the control of a doctor and in a hospital environment, under sterile conditions.
Hair Transplantation in Women
Hair transplantation does not have special risks for female patients. Men often begin to lose their hair from certain places, such as the top or sides of the forehead, while women experience a type of hair loss that affects all or most of the scalp at the same time. Unlike men, women may have different health problems underlying hair loss. Before hair transplantation, it should be investigated whether there are diseases such as hormonal problems, thyroid gland diseases, androgenic hormone excess, B12 deficiency, folic acid deficiency, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), Cushing's syndrome.
The methods used in hair transplantation for women are no different from the methods of hair transplantation for men. However, women prefer unshaven hair transplantation because they prefer long hair and do not want to shorten their hair.
Hair Transplant for Curly Hair
All hair transplantation processes are the same for patients, but the process of collecting roots in curly hair is more difficult than in other patients. The operation should be performed by an experienced specialist doctor. Since curly hair has a more lush and fuller structure than straight hair, fewer grafts are needed to close the opening area.
How Long Does Hair Transplantation Take? How Many Days Should Those Coming From Abroad Reserve For This Operation?
Hair transplant operations take an average of 6-8 hours. The first hair wash is done in the hospital on the 3rd day after the operation. Those coming from out of town or abroad should stay for 2 nights and 3 days. There is an operation process planned as hair transplant operation on the first day, resting on the next day, and hair washing on the third day. After the first wash, that is, after the third day, you can return to social life.
