Hair transplant is the process of removing hair follicles, which resistant to shedding, from the nape of the head and transplanting them to the field where the shedding occurs. If we count the phases:
Anesthesia: Anesthesia is adjusted at an available dose according to the time required by the surgery. Anesthesia, depending on the method to be used, is applied by an expert anesthesiologist to the whole head or to the area where the roots will be collected first and then to the area where the roots will be planted.
Collection of Hair Roots: It is the procedure in which the aimed number of hair follicles are collected one by one from the donor area according to the previously created surgery plan. It is painless since it is performed under the anesthesia. The duration may vary depending on the number of roots to be collected and the method of hair transplant.
Transplantation of Hair Roots: The hair follicles taken from the donor area are transplanted to the bald area one by one.
Hair transplant operation which performed with the FUE method: It is realized through anesthesia, collecting of the roots, opening the channel, transplanting the roots into the opened canal.
Hair transplant in Turkey operation which performed with the DHI Method With CHOI Pen: It is realized through anesthesia applied to the whole head, removing the hair follicles one by one and directly transplanting them.
In both methods, hand skill significantly determines the result. Hair follicles, which are collected precisely by experienced surgeons and teams, are planted in the recipient area with the same care.
Things to Consider After Hair Transplant Operation
It is necessary to be sensitive to the transplanted hair follicles, especially in the first days after surgery. It is very important to strictly follow your doctor’s postoperative wound care recommendations in order to achieve a successful result. With an operation that lasts for hours, as the phrase is, you should care the hair follicles, which each removed one by one and transplanted one by one, like a baby. At least during the first one month sensitive period.
Wound Care and Cleaning
The first wash after the operation, one or two days later, is done by nurses or hair transplant specialists in the clinic. You can also think of this wash as a training at the same time. Pay attention to these when taking a shower in the following days:
Water should not be pressurized
You should avoid movements that will irritate the scalp with your nails or fingers.
You should wash your head with warm water (low heat).
You should use the products recommended by your doctor.
You should not neglect to use the lotion given by your doctor after showering.
Pay Attention While Sleeping in the First week
Especially during the first week while sleeping, in order to protect the transplanted hair follicles and prevent any edema, one of the most important issues to be considered after surgery is to sleep in the supine position at a forty-five degree angle and making sure that the transplanted area does not come into contact with the pillow.
Protection from Sun and Impacts
Especially in the periods the sun is hot, you should be more careful. A light blow that will not hurt your head can damage the transplanted hair follicle and you may not even be aware of it. It is very important that you are protected from all kinds of blows in the first three months.
Personal Hygiene & Infection Risk
It is useful to be extra careful about personal hygiene in the first two weeks. Because what we do not want most is the occurrence of any postoperative infection.
