Thanks to the successful operation of the fue technique, which is the technique used after the hair transplantation process is completed, our client begins to experience the happiness of the hair transplantation session, which he survived without too much pain. All aches and pains that you may experience due to the transplantation process will almost completely disappear until the effect of the local anesthesia applied to avoid pain during the procedure wears off. When the effect of the anesthesia wears off, you will feel comfortable and pain-free as if no operation has been done. The process of removing the liquid injected under the skin to open the hair holes during transplantation can take an estimated 15 days. Although you will not experience any pain or ache due to the injected fluid in this process, you may feel the skin of your scalp swollen due to the swelling it creates. However, at the end of the 15-day period, this liquid will be removed from your skin close to one hundred percent.

Afterwards, especially the donor area is closed and the recipient area is left open. This dressing is removed after an average of 2-3 days while the hair is being washed.

There is no need to stay in the hospital after the procedure, the patient can go home immediately after the procedure.

Under normal conditions, it takes between 6 and 8 hours on average.

There may be a rash during the wound healing process. In non-sensitive skin, this redness is expected to go away within 10 days. However, this redness may last longer on sensitive skin.

It is poured in the form of an incision 3-4 weeks after the operation. This phenomenon is called shock spill. In fact, the producing follicles are planted. As the hair falls, these follicles remain under the skin and begin to produce hair. They start dating after an average of 3 months. They don’t all come out at the same time. The output continues for an average of 5 months, increasing the intensity, and continues until the eighth month. Situations such as asymmetry in regions, concentration of one region before, and less frequent occurrence of other regions can be seen. Therefore, it would not be correct to evaluate the result in this period. An average of 8 months should be waited for the evaluation of the outputs. Between the eighth month and the first year, softening of the scar and redistribution of the hairy strands due to this softening and also thickening are observed. When the eighth month and the first year are compared, it is noticed that the first year image is more natural. An average of one year can be expected in the evaluation of its natural appearance. Since they are not affected by the DHT hormone, there is no shedding like in male pattern baldness.

Bath, pool, sauna, sea, heavy sports are not recommended for an average of one and a half months. Smoking and alcohol can be reduced. The patient can use the shampoos he used before.

Especially the treated area should be protected from all kinds of trauma. Prevention of edema that may occur can be prevented by lying on the patient’s back. Due to the edema due to the operation, the hair line may appear asymmetrical or too far back, misleading the patient. In fact, it will be possible to make such evaluations only after 8 months. It is not recommended for the patient to drive while going home. She can start using her medications prescribed by her doctors at home. It is recommended to eat light meals after the operation. Again, the use of cigarettes and alcohol is not recommended for an average of 10 days after the operation.

Yes, you can wear a hat after a hair transplant, but waiting until your surgeon gives you the go-ahead is important. Typically, doctors recommend waiting at least a few days to a week before wearing a hat to ensure the transplanted area is not disturbed and to prevent any infection or damage to the grafts. When you start wearing a hat, choose one that is loose-fitting and soft, like a lightweight beanie or a loose baseball cap, to avoid putting pressure on the transplant site. Avoid tight-fitting hats or those made from harsh materials, as they might irritate the scalp or disrupt the healing process. Always follow your surgeon’s specific advice and guidelines regarding post-operative care to ensure the best results from your hair transplant.

Avoiding direct sun exposure on the scalp for at least the first two weeks after a hair transplant is generally recommended. The scalp is particularly sensitive and vulnerable during this initial healing phase. After this period, you should still exercise caution. If you need to be in the sun, it’s advisable to wear a hat or use a strong sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) to protect the transplanted area. Prolonged sun exposure can not only cause damage to the healing skin but also potentially affect the success of the transplant. It’s always best to consult with your hair transplant surgeon for specific guidelines and recommendations tailored to your case.

The most common methods involve transplanting hair from denser areas of the scalp to balding or thinning areas. This process uses the patient’s hair, which helps in achieving a natural appearance.

Typically, you should avoid sleeping flat on your back, especially on the transplanted area, for the first few days after a hair transplant, usually around 3 to 7 days. This precaution prevents accidental rubbing or pressure on the new grafts. During this initial period, sleeping in a semi-upright position is often recommended, possibly using a reclining chair or propping yourself up with pillows. This position helps reduce swelling and protects the transplanted hair. After about a week, most patients can return to their normal sleeping position, which can vary depending on the individual’s healing process and the surgeon’s specific instructions. It’s important to follow the post-operative care guidelines your hair transplant surgeon provides to ensure the best results from your procedure.

The best age for a hair transplant is typically when hair loss has stabilized, often in the late 20s to early 30s.

Except for sedated hair transplant method, yes, you are typically awake during a hair transplant. The procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia, which numbs the scalp but keeps you conscious and alert. This means you won’t feel pain in the area being worked on, but you’ll be awake and able to communicate with the medical team.

Hair transplants can leave scars, but the type and visibility of scarring depend on the technique used. Advancements in techniques and skilled surgeons can minimize scarring. Discussing the likelihood and management of scarring with your surgeon before undergoing a hair transplant is important. Also, scar and burn treatment is an option even if you have had scars during your surgery.

You should typically wait about 4 to 6 weeks after a hair transplant before getting a haircut. This waiting period allows the transplanted grafts to take root in their new location securely. Cutting your hair too soon can risk damaging these new grafts. For the first haircut post-transplant, scissors are often recommended instead of clippers, as scissors are gentler on the scalp. Also, be cautious about hair dye or chemical treatments; it’s usually advised to wait at least 6 weeks before using any chemicals on your hair. Always follow your hair transplant surgeon’s specific guidance, as recommendations can vary based on individual cases and the techniques used during your transplant.

You can typically fly within a few days after a hair transplant, but it’s generally advised to wait at least 48 to 72 hours. This short waiting period allows for initial healing and reduces the risk of complications like swelling or infection.

It is highly advisable not to smoke after a hair transplant, at least for a certain period. Smoking can significantly hinder the healing process and negatively impact the success of the transplant. Most surgeons recommend quitting smoking at least a week before the procedure and avoiding it for at least a month after to ensure optimal healing and growth of the transplanted hair. However, the longer you can abstain from smoking, the better it is for the overall success of the transplant and your general health. Always follow your surgeon’s specific advice regarding smoking and post-operative care.

After a hair transplant, avoiding strenuous physical activities like going to the gym for a certain period, usually around 2 to 4 weeks, is typically recommended. This precaution is necessary for several reasons: sweating, physical strain, and risk of trauma. Each individual’s recovery and post-operative instructions might vary, so it’s important to follow the specific guidance provided by your hair transplant surgeon. They will advise when it’s safe to resume gym activities based on your healing progress.
