Q. Can I have the same result at two different centers if I have transplanted the same number of grafts?
A. No. All of the patients are curious about the number of transpanted grafts or strands and will assume that the same result can be obtained if the same number is transplanted. But the experience of the surgeons, direction of transplantation, transplanting without damaging the graft, duration of the graft outside, the solution property that grafts stay outside and number of grafts /transplantation area ratio (density) is decisive in this issue. You will need to confirm the success and experience of the surgeon team who will make the operation.
Q? What is the point to take into consideration before the surgery
A. You should not use aspirin, Ginkgo bıloba, ginseng, vitamin E or any other herbal products one week before the surgery that may increase bleeding.
Patients who have cardiac diseases, atherosclerosis, myocard infarctus, bypass surgery or stend operation history must give theır medıcal information to the doctor. For this reason if the patient uses any drugs that coencive to control bleeding, the drugs should not be used for a period under the doctor’s consultation.Diabetic patients can make hair transplant but blood glucose levels must be controlled. Thyroid disorders are common, especially low thyroid hormone levels affect the success of the transplantation. If you have thyroid disorders your hormone levels must be within normal limits. Three nights before surgery, you should not drınk alcohol. On the day of the surgery you should wash your hair in the morning, and you should go to the clinic with a good breakfast.
Q? What is the ratio of the transplanted hair extension?
A. There is no expert or method/technique that can give an answer to this question. Because after the hair grows it is hard to say ıf ıt is the transplanted or the existing haır. It is impossible to count the hair growth one by one. According to my personal experience on the frontal area extension of graft ratio is approximately 90-95%, on the vertex area this rate decreases to 70-75%. But emphasizing that these rates are made by very special experts and team. These success rates cannot be reached for all hair transplantations.
Q? Can we fix hair not dense enough or thick and grow wrong side because of hair transplantation done before ?
A. Patients whose hair is not dense enough because of past hair transplant surgery can undergo a correction surgery if they have no diseases and the donor area is enough. We do correction operations at our clinic.In this situation some hormone levels, vitamin and mineral levels will be checked. Eczema, skin reactions and secondary infection scars have to be checked and then we can make a decision.We apply to methods on thick and wrong side growth hair transplant correction. Firstly if grafts are so big and wide we displant these grafts cut into single grafts then transplant again with natural phrase. On the second technique; we camouflage the bad view by transplanting dense and single grafts around and between to these thick grafts. In other words we hide these hair islet by dense transplantation and make vague.
Q? What do a good hair transplant surgery commit?
A. Three things will commit by a talent surgeon. A transplantation that ensure natural view and can not easily be realized on the first view (single roots on the front side, two three roots mix grafts that volumize on the posterior, adhere to natural hair growth side and natural frontal line). Patient will not have post-operation scar. Should make the surgery at the maximum hair dense (50-60% of normal hair dense) and natural view.
Q? How many sessions do I have hair transplant surgery?
A. Hair transplant surgey can make at repetitive sessions. This is based on the width of the hair loss area. If the transplantation area is completely bald 2 sessions will be good and dense transplantation will be made(50% ratio of normal hair dense). Every targeted sessions raise the dense ratio up to 25%-35%. So 50%-60% dense of hair will be perfect by two sessions of hair transplantation. The period between two sessions must be at least 40 days up to 6 months according to the method.
Q? Is the hair transplant surgery painful?
A. Most of the time, patient feel pain only during the injection of local anesthesia. When the anesthesia injection finished pain does not occur. But if the surgery takes long the effect of anesthesia will be diminishable fort his reason another injection should be done again. If neccessary 8-12 hour anesthesia can be obtained by doing nerve block. With the help of giving strong analgesic by the end of the operation patient prevents from post-op pain. In some cases, if patient has injection fear and agitation oral sedatives for sedation or intravenous sedation can be done. I want to notice that at our clinic intravenous sedation done by anesthesia doctor for hair transplant surgery is very low and we do not prefer. We do not accept
