What is Hair Transplant?

Hair transplantation is the surgical procedure performed to restore the thinned or shed hair to its former appearance with different techniques. Hair transplantation, which is preferred by people who are uncomfortable with their external appearance and feel a lack of self-confidence, regardless of age range, is a common procedure in the world. Hair that has been shed due to reasons such as any disease, accident, age or genetics can be restored to a lively appearance thanks to this process. During the procedure, the graft taken from the nape of the back of the person's head is transferred to a different area. The reason why the graft is taken from the nape is that this area has a structure that is resistant to hair loss.

Hair transplantation, which is performed under local anesthesia, is an operation that does not require narcotizing. In the first stage, grafts are taken from the relevant area and hair transplantation is started. Usually, the nape is preferred. A bandage is attached to this area overnight. There are small holes in the front part and the hair transplant area. No leakage occurs on the next day of hair transplantation from these holes. People may experience swelling after the procedure. However, the medications are given and the measures to be taken are meticulously carried out for the patient to achieve the desired appearance quickly after the operation. Our patients can go home and rest within a few hours after the procedure. In the first week after the transplantation, a crusty tissue forms in the area, and this formation can be eliminated by washing the hair regularly. The crusty skin is not a condition that will disturb the person.

Hair transplantation is an operation in which the patients can return to their social life within 2-7 days, depending on the quantity of the application.  The duration of hair transplantation varies according to the transplantation area. Another question asked by people who are looking for an answer to the question of what hair transplantation is, especially by doing detailed research in this area, is the length of the procedure. Estimated time is on average 4-6 hours. After the procedure, the patient can return home to rest.

Hair transplantation mainly covers the 18-60 age group. However, the type of shedding is more important than the age range for hair transplantation. If the person has experienced a type of hair loss in which the scalp can be seen with the naked eye, it can be said that there is a 50% shedding rate. In hair loss, age is only considered in a situation related to the continuity of the shedding. Especially baldness associated with burns, the formation of bare areas in the eyebrow area, and patients who were not satisfied despite having had this procedure before, people who lost their hair due to illness, and women who had male-pattern hair problems can also benefit from this application.

When it comes to women, they should consult with a specialist dermatologist before complaining about hair transplantation. If the diagnosis of "Male-type hair loss" is made after the tests, hair transplantation can be performed.

The person who will perform hair transplantation should have sufficient experience in this field. In particular, the support of an experienced dermatologist is required for the hair transplant donor area not to suffer any damage and for hair density. As in many surgical procedures, there are some factors that need to be considered for suitability in hair transplantation. These are:

  • It is necessary that there is no chronic disease related to blood clotting,
  • The point taken between the two ears, also known as the donor area, must have sufficient hair for transfer.

Hair transplantation is performed on a session basis. For an average session, the number of grafts varies between 2500-4500 depending on the donor area structure of the patient. This graft range means between 7500 and 8000 hair strands. The desired graft is determined by the specialist according to the patient's level of hair loss and the width of the free space.

At the end of the procedure, a large part of the hair obtained after the transplantation process falls out within a month. After an average of 3 months, new hair is formed. Usually, the change is noticed in the 5th and 6th months. In the following processes, 10% hair growth occurs. In the 9th and 12th months, 90% of the hair comes out. Another important detail that should be known is that the hair growth may be completed in the 15th month due to the slow blood circulation at the top.

Although anyone over the age of 18 can undergo a hair transplant, it is best to wait until you are at least 25 years old.
