Those who want to get a hair transplantation done, research about the operation and the healing process of the procedure before making their decision. The most frequently asked questions are is pain felt during the operation, does the hair have to be fully shaved for the procedure, can any complications occur after the hair transplant, what to do and not to do after the procedure and after the hair transplant is there a possibility that the hair will fall out again.
Rarely, a health condition can cause hair loss by causing damage to hair follicles. As an example of these health conditions, Diffuse Alopecia Areata may cause hair loss to recur, while Lichen Planopilaris may cause hair loss to resurface.
Even if you have had a very successful hair transplant operation, some situations can trigger hair loss again. You may want to look into any possible side effects of medications that you will use because some medications cause hair loss. In addition, since smoking, stress and eating habits can also cause you to experience hair loss problems, it is possible to minimize the problem of hair loss that may occur after the procedure by living a healthier lifestyle.
Before the hair transplantation operation, the patient needs to be examined in order to see if the patient is suitable for the procedure.Those who want to have hair transplants have a risk of not having positive results in the long run even if they have a successful hair transplant operation if they have certain health problems. A person-to-person examination, which is a candidate for hair transplantation, is a method of analyzing your medical history in detail and some genetic tests to be performed are some of the methods used. In addition, a person who wants to have hair transplantation operation, needs to have healthy hair in sufficient amounts in the section to be used as a donor region. If the expectation of hair transplantation is unrealistic, it may not be a suitable candidate for hair transplantation and it is possible to correct this situation by providing an consultant with a specialist doctor before hair transplantation.
Local anesthesia is applied to the doner area and the areas that will be implanted, before the operation also. This situation is temporary when the patient feels a little uncomfortable during the application of the local anesthetic at the begining of the procedure. Since local anesthesia has been applied before starting the hair transplantation process with the FUE method the patient will begin to become numb and will not feel any pain or discomfort. The operation will be continued and the effect of local anesthesia will continue for a while, the patient will not feel any pain. After surgery, the patient will feel a little pain and slightly uncomfortable, which will be mild and short time. After hair transplantation, the patient can easily return to his / her daily life with the exception of physical activities that do not require strength or power.
The duration of the hair transplantation is directly proportional to the number of grafts to be implanted. It can usually last for a few hours or up to a day.
