This surgery removes hair follicles from the donor site where the hair is more transplanted to the recipient site, which is the treatment area. Through this technique, eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair, chest hair, and pubic hair, can also be restored. Mainly the healthy hair at the sides and back of the scalp will be served as the donor site. Strip excision harvesting and follicular unit extraction (FUE), are mainly two ways of harvesting donor grafts. Follicular unit transplant (FUT) is a traditional technique that extracts a strip of follicles from the donor site on the back or the side of the scalp.

There are two methods for natural hair transplantation:

If the patient has sufficient hair in the donor site, and they are thick enough, This method is recommended because of its many advantages, like minimum scars and a natural look, even with short haircuts. FUE is an ideal permanent solution in the beginning and also advanced hair loss treatment. FUE is an outpatient method that is considered to be safe. Moreover, FUE is the best option for a patient whose baldness is spottily caused by surgery scars, trauma, burns, or alopecia caused by dermatological diseases. Also, this method is suitable for those patients whose donor area is beard or body.

In this surgery, either sedation or local anesthesia is administrated.

Post-procedure care

  • Get home immediately after surgery and have minimal activity until the next morning take a break.
  • Do not use any compound containing aspirin or alcohol within 3 to 5 days after surgery.

Hair transplantation operates on an outpatient basis.

  • Swelling
  • Itchiness
  • Numbness
  • Sterile Folliculitis
  • Hair thinning
  • Cysts

The transplant area is completely bandaged after hair transplantation.The dressing is removed the day after the operation and the patient’s scalp is washed in the clinic. Washing the scalp in the clinic has the advantage that the patient’s fear is removed in relation to washing the implant area, and also the patient learns how to wash it properly and accurately.

It is necessary to wash the scalp daily with a special shampoo at home.

Correct and regular washing is very important in maintaining the health of the area and preventing infection.

in the FUT method, the stitches on the back of the head are removed. These stitches are very easy to remove, but they should be removed by a doctor.

The transplanted hair has grown a little during this time. The growth of transplanted hair is a sign of a successful hair transplant and is a good sign. At the end of the second week, all the symptoms of the operation disappear and the patient’s head will look completely normal.

At this time, the transplanted hair starts to fall out gradually.

Falling of implanted hair is normal and should not be a cause for concern.

Sometimes these hairs do not fall out. In any case, whether the transplanted hair falls out or not, the roots of these hairs continue to live while resting under the skin.

At the same time as the transplanted hair falls out, some of the hairs around the transplanted area also fall out. In other words, the patient’s scalp will seem to have less hair as compared to before the transplant. This is completely normal and should not worry the patient.

From the third week onward, the drugs prescribed by the attending physician must be taken carefully according to the prescription and for the specified period of time.

During this period, the patient’s previously fallen hair (if any), grows back and grows longer. The root of the implanted hair under the skin is alive but resting and therefore there is no hair shaft. The use of prescription drugs will continue during this period.

Sometimes there are a few small pimples in the transplant area. These pimples are completely normal and do not require treatment. If the pimples are too many or too large, don’t worry, but contact your doctor.

The growth of the transplanted hair begins gradually, and by the end of the ninth month, about 60-70% of the transplanted hairs appear. The use of prescription drugs will continue during this period.

New hair sometimes differs from previous hair in terms of quality, texture, and appearance. This is normal and will go away with time.

The patient will be examined at the end of the first year. Usually, everything is in order and there is complete satisfaction.

In rare cases and for unknown reasons, full growth of transplanted hair does not occur even up to 12 months after hair transplantation. In these cases, we have to wait for 18-24 months after the transplant to see the final result. This rarely happens and should not cause concern to the patient.

At the end of the second year, the person is examined. A decision will be made whether to continue or stop the medicines and the next hair transplantation (if necessary) will be planned.

heavy exercise is not allowed for two weeks after natural hair transplant.
Light exercise is not allowed for a week after natural hair transplantation.
Sports in which there is a possibility of hitting the head, such as football, basketball, etc., are not allowed for one to two months.
Gentle walking is possible even the day after the operation.
Swimming in the sea or pool is not allowed for up to two weeks .

Natural hair transplant pain can be examined in four categories:

Natural hair transplant is done with local anesthesia. This requires an anesthetic injection of lidocaine into the skin. This is done with an insulin syringe with a very thin needle tip. Therefore, the pain during the injection is very mild and usually tolerable.

Natural hair transplant is done with local anesthesia. If the anesthesia is done correctly, there is no pain during the procedure. Therefore, a natural hair transplant is completely pain-free.

Due to the outpatient nature of natural hair transplant, usually, there is not much damage to the delicate tissues of the scalp. Therefore, in the first 2-3 nights after the operation, there is only a feeling of stretching and mild pain in the region. All these problems are solved with common pain medications, such as acetaminophen. The occurrence of severe pain after natural hair transplantation is very rare.

This pain occurs only when natural hair transplantation is performed by incompetent people who are not specialized in the field. Because in this case, the nerves and deep tissues are damaged and this issue causes chronic headaches.

That is why, it is always recommended that natural hair transplantation be performed exclusively by a dermatologist and hair specialist to avoid unwanted side effects as much as possible.

Hair transplantation is a 95% successful surgery, and recovery of the treated area depends on the number of hair follicles that remain healthy. In some situations, hair coverage will require several surgeries.

  • Patients who don’t have large amounts of hair in their donor area.
  • Patients who have widespread hair loss areas.
  • Patients who are undergoing medical treatments, such as chemotherapy.
  • Infection
  • Swelling
  • Scarring
  • Lack of hair growth
Will the implanted hair fall out again?

In fact, except for natural hair loss (sown and growing hair), if the hair is already spread, the problem is likely to be internal. In other words, the same factors that cause hair loss and baldness can also cause the hair to fall.

How many days after the procedure, my hair grows?

Between the third week and the second month, the follicles are detached from the transplanted hair but do not worry because this hair will grow back without falling.

Does hair transplant have age conditions?

There are no age conditions for hair transplantation. According to clinical situations and approval by specialist physicians, anybody can do this in every part of the body from hair resuscitation to beard, moustache, and eyebrows. But it’s better to do it over the age of 23.
