General health assessment and chronic diseases

Hair transplantation is a small surgical procedure that can be done under local anesthetic. However, after carefully evaluating the patient's health history against all potential dangers, it should be determined that hair transplantation is not a concern.

At the start of the questions that will be asked;

Chronic diseases, cardiological diseases, diabetes, asthma, and kidney failure should all be investigated. If there are any curable issues prior to the treatment, they should be reported to the appropriate branch physician for approval. Before hair transplantation, a specialized physician should assess your general health history in a preliminary interview.

Medicines and vitamins

Medication and several blood-thinning aspirin-derived pain medicines should be stopped prior to hair transplantation. Without the permission of the branch physician, chronic disease medications should not be stopped. Before the treatment, the athletes should be informed about the vitamins used for hair maintenance, multivitamins, and intramuscular contents.

3 days before hair transplant

Alcohol use should be halted three days before hair transplantation, and smoking should be kept to no more than 1-2 cigarettes each day, if possible. Smoking reduces blood flow, constricts arteries, and slows circulation. Good circulation is necessary for the transplanted hair to cling on and be nourished. As a result, smoking has a negative impact on hair growth.

Green tea and aspirin-derived pain medications with blood-thinning qualities should not be used without a doctor's consent, and blood thinners should be avoided.

Hair dye and chemical hair care products should not be used.

Operation day

On the night of the procedure, we recommend that you get some rest and arrive rested. Being inactive for an extended period of time during the operation, which lasts 6-8 hours, can result in weariness. Resting and sleeping will make the procedure more comfortable for you.

On the day of the treatment, take a shower and make sure your scalp is clean.

Eat a light breakfast; there will be a lunch break in between procedures, but being hungry for an extended period of time might cause blood sugar levels to decrease.

Avoid cutting or shortening your hair.

On the day of the procedure, wear a button-up or zipped dress that you won't have trouble putting on your head, such as a shirt.

During the operation

Hair transplantation is a sensitive surgery that requires extreme caution. The tiniest movement during the treatment causes unneeded tissue harm. Permission to move can be asked, and once granted by the person performing the procedure, it can be carried out.

It is critical that persons who spend a lot of time on their phones or who communicate with gestures do not talk during the surgery.

During the operation, there is no time for smoking or other distractions.

Rest breaks should be kept brief since the time the removed grafts spend outside the body should be as short as possible.
