Yes, of course. Unfortunately hair loss is seen in around 50 to 65 of the males and around 40 to 45 percent of the females across their lifetime. In some patients with advanced stage of the hair loss, it can be also performed on females. Actually, in our clinic, roughly 10 of the patients who are admitted for the hair transfer surgery are females.
We decided individually according to the each patient because hair transfer surgery is an aesthetic procedure everyone's expectations of the vision of how they should look differs. So we decided on individual basis.bBut there is a very widely accepted rule that to be eligible for the hair transfer surgery you should be at least at no root time at a scale to and above.
In the hair transplant surgery we want patients to be awake normally. It could be also done under a mild sedation or some local some general anesthetic but we do not recommend that too much because it's a cosmetic procedure and it's a bearable process. So, just some tablets before the surgery as anxiety will be just enough for patients all day because it's a simple procedure and it's not something that you concerned or afraid. But, most of the patients are sometimes think that's a huge process or huge surgery actually it's not inspirable and the pain is really tolerant.
Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure like all other surgeries. It has some risks but it's very low. What could be the reason we are using during the surgery some local anaesthetics or some medications. If the patient has allergy or anaphylaxis any kind of the medication that we are using, that may create some troubles during the operation. But if if it's done by a proper team, a doctor and a good clinic with its emergency equipment within few minutes, it could be prevented and it could be resolved; it will be recovered.Other than that patients may sometimes lose more blood during the operation that may lead some shock after the operation or during the operation. But it's also could be prevented by a good medical team that's why we recommend patients to be have their surgeries in good clinics with emergency service equipment and also some emergency certificates that the team has and in Smile Hair Clinic we have all these kind of American Heart Association certifications repeated regularly every two years and also emergency service and we check we monitorize patients during the surgery.
In operation day, a doctor will give you consultation and you will decide the hairline and zones that the surgery will be performed. So, yes you can. I know that it's not a cancer surgery, so, of course, we have to listen your wishes, your wills but also please keep in mind that sometimes we know a little bit better and please listen our advices too. If the hairline you want is good for you, we will of course perform surgery as it is.
We do not want patients to drink alcor at least few days. The reason behind that is the alcohol sometimes lead patients vascular condition to have more bleeding during the surgery. That's why we want patients not to drink alcohols at least 3 to 5 days before the surgery. So, in the operation, it could be much more better condition.
First of all, you need to get in contact with our clinic, send us the preliminary pictures we ask, so we can do preliminary evaluation of your case and after that schedule face-to-face or online consultation.
It takes three to four hours to perform an eyebrow transplant.
Consultations face-to-face consulting the in the clinic or before the surgery. The consultation we perform with the patients is very individual. It differs according to their individual needs, the questions they may have and other aspects of the surgery. We cannot give an exact time because everyone's needs are different. But, on average, our face-to-face consultations may last from 20 up to the 40 minutes. Online consultations may take a little bit longer because most of the patients we talk online are far away from us. So, they want to make sure they get answered to all their questions. Before the surgery we have a preoperative consultation with the patient, it may last around 15 to 30 minutes more if it is be needed.
Actually this change according to your scalp size. For example, with 5000 grafts, sometimes we can't just cover the 60%of a person because actually his head is really big and sometimes with 4000 grafts we can cover the full hat so it really changed from person to person. So the most important thing here is to check your donor zone's density. Because the grafts numbers the sum of your donor zone surface multiplying the density of it, so, in the end ,if you have a bigger donor zone, you have a bigger recipient zone. So the high graft number does not always means that you will have a great result.
Patients risks is calculated just prior to the surgery. According to the frontal mid scalp and crown area size and area calculation multiplying with the right density according to the patient's hair thickness, hair single or multiple ratio, we we calculated it. But, for an average patient if in order to get a full density patient may need up to 10.000or 13.000 grafts in total. But in the hair transplantation, of course it's not possible in one session and we try to get as much as we can from starting from front to reaching up to the crown in every session in order to give the right density.
You can notice some people had hair transplant when you see them in crowd . Actually you shouldn't understand that you shouldn't realize that the most important thing for us to give a natural look with a maximum density. So a hair transplant should not be realized by other persons. If you realize that somebody had a hair transplant, it's a bad hair transplant.
Most of the time we're required to have a full shave during the hair transplant surgery. Because it gives us a more open angles and to see the areas that can be mastered with the long hair.
We ask our patients not to cut their hair before they arrive because we want to mark the areas where the transfer should be carried out and we can see more properly the affected zones. So, please before arrival, don't have your hair cut we will perform this procedure here ourselves.
First of all, make sure that you know the clinic and the doctor or physician you entrust your hair to. Because the connection between the patient and the doctor is the first the most important step that will make you feel comfortable. Because you are going to entrust and give us the permission to take the knife to your head. So to make it easier to go talk to the doctor, ask all the necessary questions and make sure you are making a good decision. If you feel too anxious before the surgery, we can admit you or give you some anxiolytic medications as well.
Our surgeons magnifying ___ to see the scalp clearly. So, we see exactly where we do the incision. So, we do not harm the existing hair roots and cells. If we do that, you will lose the existing hair. So, it would be pointless to perform a hair transplant sometimes.
Actually, it depends on few different factors. After we see the extracted grafts with the caliber of the graft which means the thickness of the graft multiple single ratio and the graft number. So, each patient may need different density in different areas. But for a desire for a standard thing we usually do not want to exceed 50 or 55 full kilo units per centimeter square in the frontal area and 30 or 35 full kilos for the crown area. It may be different for each patient of course. But, more than these usage in the in the frontal area or in the crown area it may be resulted as non-necessary grafts extraction. So, we want something very useful for the patient's need.
Long hair FUE is a surgery performed without the shaving or cutting the full length of the hair.
It is the same with the hair transplant. You can use FUT or FUE for the beard transplant. We like to perform a few surgeries so for the beard transplant we you we use a few emitted.
The optimal donor area for us is the back side of the head. We also call this area a safe donor zone because the grafts or hair in this area they're resistant to the effects of dehydrated testosterone most of the time. So, after the extraction and implantation they don't shed off all the time.
Unshaven hair transfer surgery is the technique during which the recipient side is not shaved. There is a big misconception. When the patients think that in unshaving hair transplant surgery, none area or no area of the recipient or donor area is shaved. Not all of the time the donor area should be shaved for the appropriate extraction of the graft . The receipt inside may be capped and we do the incisions in between the existing hair that's why every once in a while it's called an unshaven but it's not a completely unshaven procedure
Most of the times we use a short acting anesthetics and a long-acting anesthetics. We use Xylocaine Marcaine or Bupivacain. In order to enhance their time of the work or effect we adjusted with diluted solution of adrenal.
When you look in the mirror if you think that you would look much more beautiful and you if you think that your look would improve and if you are not happy with your outlook and when you you are disturbed when you see your photos then it's time for you to get a hair transplant. We sometimes perform hair transplant for the kids with burns and scars for from the accidents. But when you are over 18 years old age, you can get a hair transplant when you want.
Some laboratory tests may be evaluated before the surgery. It would be better for patients condition. But of course, if it's a total bald area and if we have to implant that area, we don't need so much things to investigate. But if it is a diffuse thinning, if the hairs are becoming thinner, patients may be evaluated by a dermatologist or if we can have the consultation before the surgery, we may advise patients to take some laboratory tests just pre-order the surgery because it will give us a combination treatment after the surgery.
Not all the patients with the hair loss or with the hair loss problems may be a candidate for the hair transfer surgery. Patients who are on chemotherapy or radiotherapy the patients with some autoimmune diseases or the reasons that are apart from androgenetic alopecia, for example, the patients with the alopecia areata, or the patients whose hair loss is due to the dietary factors the first treatment plan for them is to treat an underlying condition and only after that decide for the hair transplant surgery.
If a person is curly, of course transplanted hair will be curly. On the other hand, if a graft is damaged or stressed more than, it should be during the transplantation the outcome will be curly and sometimes it's called kinky hair. So, no, the transplanted hair will not be curly if the person is not curly.
There are minimum or close to no dietary restrictions. The only thing we require our patients is to avoid alcohol for the first 10 days after the surgery. Also we ask them to do some restrictions on spicy or salty food for the first three to five days. Of course, you can have some spice or salty food but it should be within the normal limits and with no exaggeration.
You can comp your hair after the transplantation, because it's your existing hair, it's your hair, you can use even long hair, you can comb it,you can do any style.It doesn't interfere or it is not avoid it by the hair transplantation procedure. You can use it as normal.
We want patients at least for a month not to shave or cut or trim their hairs. Usually after a month you can use scissors for the recipient side or trimmers or clippers for the donor side to shave your hair. But, other than that, at least for two to three months we do not want you to use the trimmers or clippers in the recipient side because it may pull or damage the skin or hair, that's why you should avoid that.
You can. You should avoid water on newly transplanted zone.You can wash below your neck.
You may start to use clippers for the sides and donor zone one month after the hair transplant. But, for the new hair, you should wait 6 months to use clippers.
Yes, you can. But, we advise our patients to start dying there or coloring their hair 6 to 8 weeks after the hair transplant surgery when the regrowth of the hair starts.
Wait for our patients to ask someone to pick them up and drop back home after the hair transplant surgery. We do it for a couple of reasons. First of all, a hair transplant surgery is a 6 to 8 hours procedure, so basically you can be really tired after the procedure. During the surgery where it means some medication to the patients and some of them can make you feel a little bit sleepy. So, for your safety, please don't drive the car immediately after the hair transplant surgery.
There are no restrictions regarding the aspects. The only thing we tell our patients is to avoid too much sunlight exposure or ultraviolet light exposure for the first six months after the hair transplant surgery. We asked it for two reasons. First of all, it can cause extensive scar formation and number two, it can cause an altered pigmentation across your scalp. So, for the first six months, after the hair transfer surgery if you're going to be under direct sunlight for a longer period of time please use a hat, cap or a sunscreen with an SPF 40 to 50.
You can wear a hat you want after 10 days of your hair transplant. For changes you are going to wear a loose hat or sometimes a bandana or a loose scarf will really work.
Patients may need some medications after the surgery. As a package, we provide patients to use after the surgery as antibiotics, painkillers and other unswelling medications. But, sometimes according to the consultation and the hair transplantation procedure technique, they may need to use other other one-year medications that we that your doctor may prescript to you but it depends on the patients can.
Yes. This is something we recommend patients to to use it. Because normally the usage is mostly for the implant not for the implanted hairs for the existing hairs because when we do the implantation there are some also existing hairs. And we need to improve the thickness in order to give a combination treatment to the patient because the transplanted hairs will grow. But if the patient lose his actual hair existing care, it means that he may need another surgery but our thing is to to think the patient in a 360 degree and we want them to have a good result in the future. So, for keeping the hairs not to lose it and also improve the thickness, we want to use finasteride maybe in some patients also minoxidil too.
Minoxidil is one of two FDA approved medical treatments for the hair loss problems. The minoxidil use is not the must but we advise that for the patients with androgenetic alopecia to minimize the miniaturization of the hair help with the regrowth of the hair after the heat transfer surgery.
No, it does not. We just cover that bald spots with the existing hair after your hair transplant. So, every time you have your hair transplant,your donor area loses its density additive like 20 to 30 percent.
The answer for this question is different. We need to wait for at least 6 to12 months. Before the second surgery, if we didn't perform any incisions or implantations at the area we want to perform, the second surgery we can do next surgery 6 months after. But if there were any implantations or incisions, it's better to wait for at least 12 months.
Patients after the hair transplantation should sleep at their donor area at least 7 to 10 days. If they avoid and if the transplanted hairs and not touch the pillow or other things during the sleeping it's okay. But we usually recommend patients to use a neck pillow and to avoid turning to right or left and sleeping on donor area is the safest part for the patient's condition.
The grafts become secure at least 5 to 10 days after the surgery. But the first 24 hours, of course the incisions that we did during the operation will be more the wound aids will be closed. So it will be become stabilized, but still fragile after the 5 sometimes 6, 7 or until 10 days. The grafts may be not so secure, so patients should avoid some kind of wearing hats or sleeping as normally or the things that we advise after the post-operative care is the important thing. So, patients should avoid everything at least at 10 days
It depends on the type of job you do. If you work on any physical job, we advise our patients to stay away from the physical activity and dusty environments for the first 10 to 14 days. After the hair transplant surgery till the scabs are off. If you work in an office condition or an outdoor or from home you can be to work two to three days after the heat transfer.
For the first 30 days, after the hair transplant surgery, you should wash your hair every day. But, for the first 2 weeks, after the hair transfer surgery, you should wash your hair the way we explain you in the clinic or it's explained in the guideline.
After the surgery we expect some small bleedings in the first night or in the second day also, but it's very minimal we do not expect it continuous bleeding. Maybe, it's just pop-up of the grafts in some parts and it's very minimal bleeding and it shouldn't be. There is no need to do something for that just pressing over. It will be enough.
Hair transplant is not noticeable in the end. But, in the progress ,at least after third week until fourth month or fifth month until the hairs grow, yes some redness may occur or some due to density in lack of density it may be noticeable. But, when it's totally grown and we we see the real result if it is done very properly with the right angle with the right direction and right implantation it is not noticeable. So, whatever we have to we we want to do for the patients is giving a natural a an aesthetical look after the surgery and the result.
Actually PRP is not most of the doctor's approved solution for the hair loss treatment. But in my daily practice, in our clinic, that other doctors prefer PRP when there is onset of the hair loss. So repeated prp sessions is very beneficial and affected effect by the hair loss problems. And after the surgery, it gives a good recovery period, it heals better and the the growth will be quicker if it is done repeatedly at least a month for five to six months.
The answer is very individual because we never know when the shedding or the hair loss will stop in some patients. The hair loss may stop immediately after the hair transplant surgery. Because the active stage of the shedding is gone or in some patients it may last up to the age of 50 or even 55.
Finasteride is one of the two FDA approved medical treatments for the hair loss. Finasteride is the most potent or efficient medication today. We have to treat the androgenetic alopecia at least 85 of the patients who use the finasteride they stop the hair loss and the hair start to improve gaining back their volume and density
After the hair transplantation, we do not recommend too many restrictions for the diet. But, at least 2 to 3 days in order to prevent some swelling, we do not want patients to eat more salt during their diet but other than that there is no restriction with any food preference.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DON'T SEE ANY RE GROWTH OF HAIR 3 TO 4 MONTHS AFTER THE HAIR TRANSPLANT SURGERY?
We expect the regrowth of the hair at around week 8 to 16 after the hair transfer surgery. In some patients, the regrowth may take a little bit longer for this reason. We ask for our patients to wait for at least 6 months to see at least 30 to 40 percent of the regrowth of the hair.
We expect some success rates in different areas. Especially, the frontal area is more vascularized. So, the success rates are more than 95 percent but when we come for the crown area due to circulation and anatomical and physical physiological conditions, the success rates are 70 to 80 percent. And, it depends on the grafts needed by hair transplantation in the desired area. If patient needs two high graft numbers in the vertex even implanting more grafts, that area will be resulted as lower success rates. So, according to the hair transplantation principles, each different area needs different density implantation during the surgery.
Patients may need to use finasteride, minoxidil which are FDA approved treatments after the hair transplantation according to their existing cares condition. If they have a very thin miniaturized hairs in their recipient side, in order to -prevent them for future hair loss or in order to give the thickness to them, patients may need to use minoxidil and finasteride medication after the transplantation at least a year and after a year we need to re-evaluate it again.
We advise our patients to wash their head for the first one month after the hair transplant surgery every day for the first two weeks. It should be done the way it's explained in the clinic or shown on our video. The temperature of the water should be the warm one, it should not be very cold, it should not be hot, the warm comfortable temperature of the water is enough.
The next day of your operation after the doctors controlled you and they say it's okay for you to fly you can fly back to your country.
Patients after the hair transplantation go to the work even two days later one day or two days later. Because it's not a physical thing. But of course if patient wants to rest, we advise we recommend them to at least one or two days to rest and then they go to the their work. But, the main thing maybe the patient's concerned about that is patients may not be seen by other people or eyes on their hair transplantation. So, sometimes they do not want to go to work very soon but they can just go back to their work two days later.
You can start light exercises after 15 days of your hair transplant. After one month, you can fully resume your activities and you can hit the gym really hard.
Hair transplantation is a normal procedure and after the hair transplantation patients may have sexual intercourse. There is no contraindication for that even just after the surgery. It's possible to do it because it's not a contraindication for the transplantation. Only the patients have to take care is not to sweat too much during all physical activities like a sexual intercourse
You can use your shower with normal pressure after hair transplant after 10 days. In 10 days, your grafts will attach your skin. So, there will be no harm for your grafts with the normal pressure.
You will see the finest result of the hair transplant after two years. In six months, you will start to see some results. For some people, it's much more better than they expected. And in 6 to 8 months, it will increase, that's like, it will be the final result, stands like 8 percent of the final results density, in one year it will be like 90 percent of the final results density and in 2 years you will see the final result.
After the hair transplant surgery, your hair will immediately start to grow.But around week 4 to 8, you will start to notice your new hair transplant hair will suddenly start to shedd off. This is the normal physiology and biology of your hair. This phenomenon is called the shock hair loss. After that, when the shock hair loss is over your new hair will start to regrow around week 8 to 16 after the hair transplant surgery. We see initial results around 4 to 6 minutes after the hair transplant surgery.Initial results are only 30 maybe up to the 50. The final results, good results will take up to one year. It's around 80 to 85 of the results and final results may take up to 18 months after the hair transfer surgery.
Any natural shampoo will do good after your hair transplant. You should avoid harmful chemicals and you can google the ingredients of the shampoo and you may choose the best one. But, if you ask my personal opinion, you may buy natural olive oil shampoos that will work.
Hair transplant do not protect your existing hair or cause to lose them in the future. It's all about your genetics. If your genetics coded, then you will.
After the operation, we sometimes see some side effects. But, they are mostly expected. It's not resulted as a complication so whatever we see usually is a forehead swelling in the front. Sometimes, redness after the operation at least last 2 to 3 weeks.And during the growth fuzz, we see some pimples in the recipient side. But, if we are talking about the complications which is very rare and could be still seen in a unskilled hand is the tissue necrosis in the recipient side and also a donor shock loss area which could be resulted as not aesthetically looking after the operation.
PRP is not a must treatment of the hair transplant surgery. But we advise it because it facilities of re-growth of the hair, helps to fight miniaturization and the recovery of the skin after the hair transplant surgery.
Yes! According to the Turkish laws we have a very strict rules for the patient privacy. Unless the patient gives his or her permission, we do not share any pictures of the patient before surgery after the surgery on any social media or websites
Turkey is in crossroads of Asia and Europe. It's a huge hub located in one of the busiest areas of the world. Also, quality of the job affordable prices make it very attractive for the patients who look for the affordable and quality hair transplant procedures.
Turkey is one of the leader country now in the hair transplantation market. It happens within 10 years. But before that, not only Turkey, all around the world there were not so many clinics that were doing the transplantations. When there is more competition, it's free trade economy that brings the prices to go lower. In Turkey within 5 years, 10 years in time there were many new clinics occurred. Most of the doctors from the state hospitals or public work they become in the liberal and they open their hair clinics. It brings the market to lower the prices because of the competition. It doesn't mean the cheaper transplant doesn't work. It depends on the clinic's experience about that. If the clinic has a good experience seeing thousands of patients around the world. What's changed within time is not the technique. The experience is changed for us. For myself i'm seeing thousands of patients all around the world from America to the Australia. I'm seeing different ethnic backgrounds different face types, different hair techniques so that gives me to do the right transplantation. This market is becoming lower prices it's just because of the competition.
In a general or daily basis when we do the extraction and do an FUE procedure we have the chance to separate all the good grafts; classify them according to the number of the folders they have and use them appropriately in the specific areas of the scalp. This good planning and classification of the graphs gives us a higher chance to implant them properly and with the higher rates of success.
The hair transfer surgeries are performed with the qualified medical professionals or the profession with the medical background. It can be physicians or doctors and surgical assistants who have a degree in any field of medical specialities like nurses, anesthesia technicians, paramedics or operating room nurses.
People all around the world are our clients. People who think that they will look better with hair transplant or want to have some more hair are our clients. Our clients are 90% from United Kingdom (UK) and Ireland right now. We started increasing numbers from States (USA) and Canada; we are still getting high number of patients from the other European countries.
Hair transplantation techniques are different according to patients condition. In some patients, we prefer to do the Sapphire Microblade Technique which is more suitable. in some patients we prefer DHI. Both techniques are done in our clinic about implantation technique. But for extraction we are using only FUE which is called Folliculer Unit Exicision. After the follicles are extracted, it should be implanted in two different ways: One is, we do the incisions first, then we implant the grafts inside those incisions that we created. In the other method, DHI. DHI is a pen method that the graphs are inserted in a pen and implanted in the same time in the doing in the incisions. Which is better it depends on patients' need. In some patients, DHI superior and we are choosing it. In some patients we are using the Sapphire Technique in DHI. I'm mostly using this technique for the female patients orif the patients need inner particle area with non-shaven method. But in the Sapphire technique, i think it's my daily practice which i find better and superior to the other technique to arrange the angle direction and the incision density during my operations.
Istanbul, Turkey is the capital of the hair transplant for the last decade. Every year over 1 million men travel to Istanbul just to have their hair transplants. So you can consider that Istanbul is the best destination for the hair transplant right now because you will pay much more less than you should pay in Europe and United States (U.S) and Canada. On the other hand, you will have a much more better result after two years.
Both surgical techniques, FUT or nowadays is called FUSS Follicular Unit Strip surgery; or FUE is a suitable technique for the blood transfer surgery nowadays more than 90% of the beard transplant are performed via an FUE.
Sapphire FUE technique is a type of FUE during which a sapphire microblade is used to create a recipient site in all incisions or channels.
The prices vary across the clinics widely. But what we can see on online or through the internet sites or from the experience of the patients that have done or performed the surgeries before in other clinics, it ranges from around four and a half up to the fifteen to twenty thousand pounds.
Limited donor area is the term used to describe an insufficient or weak donor zone . There can be many reasons for this one. Did the patient have the previous surgery? Are there any big scars at the back side of the head? or Did the hair loss proceeded into the donor area creating a kind of horseshoe outlook at the back side of the head? Is the hair thin or thick? These are all the factors that describe the quality of the donor area.
ISHRS stands for International Society for Hair Restoration Surgery. It's society that unites the hair transplant surgeons and hair transplant professionals from all over the world. Being the fellow or an associate member or member of ISHRS means high standards of quality ethics and professional approach please pay attention that your surgeons or surgical teams are members fellows or at least associate members of ISHRS.
There are many researches ongoing about the hair loss treatments and techniques. Nowadays FDA approves only three types of the treatment for the hair loss. Number one it's a medical treatment two medications are approved: it's minoxil or finasteride. There are two surgical techniques an FUE of follicular unit extraction or an FUT sometimes called FUSS like Follicular Unit Strip Surgery and there are also a physical device called "Triple LT" , low light laser treatment for the hair loss.
Just like in any other questions we have mentioned before, it's very individual. But there are average numbers good density is when 40 to 60 incisions per cm square is done. Medium density is 30 to 40 and low lens is 20 to 30 incisions per cm square. There is a very big misconception. When the patient thinks that the high density incisions implantation, you have the better is the result. There is one point here! The more incisions you do there is a high chance that we can damage the vasculature or blood vessels underneath the skin. So the blood flow to the grafts will be diminished and the surroundings go down. The good technique here is appropriate density good angle of the direction and their depth.
Body Hair Transplant is when, as a donor side, we use other parts of the body except the back side of the head, it can be the beard region, it can be the chest region. Some clinics offer the extraction from the legs or arms.
Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease when your naive or innate immune cells attack the hair follicles. It causes the recession of the hair follicle, inflammation and regression.
Beard Transplant is transferring hair from a person's donor zone to the face. If you do not have beard or some parts of your beard is missing, we can fix it by transferring some hair. After a couple of months, they adapt to the face. People really cannot understand that you had a beard transplant. The most important thing here is to implant only singular hair. If you implant multiple hair on the face the result will look fake and people can easily understand that you had a hair transplant.
For existing hair, we want to keep them during the surgery because even we take most of the grafts from the donor area; if if we protect the existing hair and if we just increase the cumulative thickness in the recipient side, that's a a positive thing for the patient because for the reserve and future he may need another transplantation. So it will be a more conservative approach. We want to keep the existing hair. We are using extra magnifiers for identifying the existing hair and we want to protect them. Sometimes, in some conditions, if it's baby hair or it is terminal hair, it could be implanted over it but otherwise we just want to do the implantation with keeping the existing hair.
The most common cause for the males to become bold is due to the phenomenon called under genetic alopecia. But other types of the hair loss can also be seen alopecia areata, scatricio alopecia or some chronic medical conditions or medical treatments the males get.
Depending on the stage and type of heroes you have there can be a medical treatment for the hair loss as well. For example, under genetic alopecia there is a minoxidil and finasteride treatment. For other autoimmune diseases there can be other treatment plans. Or if you are undergoing a chemo or radiotherapy we have to wait for the end of these treatments and wait for the recovery of the hair follicles.
Stuff in smile hair clinic is full-time employees. If we are working as a team here. Not only the doctor the surgical assistants also so all together we are giving the right technique. And right transplantation to the patient as a result so we have we need to know each other for a long time, we need to do several patients and several techniques that gives the full full thing to the patient because whatever i do my team should understand me and should know whatever I expect with the patient's operation so it's this is the must in every clinic.
No there are only surgical techniques of the hair transplantation.
The only thing that gives us a good outcome of the surgery is good preparation and planning of the surgery. The better you prepare for the surgery the better you evaluate the patients; put all the pros and cons weight them and decide for the surgery the high is the chance of the successful surgery.
Hair transplants are mostly permanent and the transplanted hairs will not affect it by any future hair loss. But sometimes, in order to extract more numbers, we normally extract the graphs from the saved on our area but sometimes in order to get more numbers, we extend the donor area a little bit more to get more numbers. Out of safety on our area grafts are usually if there is a receding in the future it may be lost within within time. But usually we use those hairs in the front layer lines and if the patient has a receding it will be resulted as naturally receding hairline. So yes we it's permanent but in some conditions it's not permanent and it's temporary.
Hair transplantation is one of the solutions of the hair loss problems. If the patient's condition is more bold areas in his recipient side and it should be restored. Yes, the hair transplantation is only the thing that you can just go for that.But if the patient's conditioned with the existing hair are thin, it's diffuse thinning. There is no space that we can do the hair transplantation then patients should seek for a medical treatment before the surgery. But if there are gaps, if there are some areas that the transplantation could be done so transplantation and medical treatment should be used by patients in order to have a good result in the future.
The best technique for the hair transfer surgery is the method that fits your needs is the best. There isn't one single best option. Robotic hair transfer surgery has some advantage. Fue have some advantage and FUT has its own advantage or disadvantage. So it should be decided individually with your doctor or head transfer surgeon. Of course in some aspects robotic hair transfer surgery can have some pros like maybe a shorter period of time and more precise extraction. But the very experienced team we get the same results with the classic FUE method.
IF YOU HAD PREVIOUS HAIR TRANSPLANT SURGERY AND NOT SATISFIED RESULTS CAN YOU HAVE ANOTHER PROCEDURE?
Yes and this is called the revision head transfer surgery. Around 10 to 18& of our patients are the patients who have undergone a surgery in other clinics and are not satisfied with the results.We perform the procedure called the revision head transfer surgery. There are some points we take into consideration. When planning these procedures, we have to fix a little bit, all the the aspect that the patient doesn't like from the previous surgery and get him to the point where you want to be so the specific the revision surgeries should be done with a very experienced team.
The answer is yes. Because we take the hair from back side of the hair and we get it randomly and evenly. So the out of the donor area after the extraction looks even. The color of the transplanted hair will be exactly the same that we get from the donor area. If it's white color it will be the white if it's the color of your original hair it will be that color.
Wİth the very simple words hair transplantation is relocating hair from back side of your head. We call the donor area or safe donor area to the open areas in the recipient zone or the areas where you have the hair loss.
Hair loss should be consulted by a dermatologist or a hair transplant surgeon before deciding a hair transplantation surgery. In order to accept patient for hair transplantation, we want it's becoming more stable so there are some things that we have to evaluate the patient's condition, to understand the underlying causes and give the right treatment just before the surgery and when it's stable there is no hair loss then we can do for the hair transplantation.
You can go online and check some pages online and see the other form of patients experience, you can see the results and sometimes there are forms that you can connect with them and see how the clinic is doing its job. So you can easily find your way and navigate and please be sure that the clinic you will go is run by doctors not only technicians.
Yes 100%! you should have your surgery in the places or clinics where the real doctors real nurses and surgical assistants work. Pay attention to that you won't be in the black market clinics and have the surgery there! Because the outcomes of the surgeries are not that really good and you have a higher chances of the failure of the hair transfer surgery.
Hair transplantation leaves scars in idonor area. But , in recipient site we do not expect scars because it's surgical incisions but according to the donor areas extraction in some approach with higher numbers that may lead more scars. But if it is very done well, it may leave very minimal scars but it will be not so noticeable with naked eye.
If you have your hair transplant in an experienced clinic, it will absolutely look natural. There are some factors that the hair transplant team considers to give you the best natural look that you can have. So not implanting the multiple roots in the front and give the natural direction of the hair will ensure that you will have natural look after the transplant.
Eyebrow transplants is one of the best solutions if a person lost existing eyebrows is much better than and is much better and efficient than the statues and it gives a much more natural look.
Patients should inform the doctors or clinic just before the hair transplantation about their chronic diseases. For some diseases, we should know if it is interfered with the hair loss problems with its chronic disease even its progress or sometimes diabetic patients or cardiovascular patients. We should know in advance about patients using some medications or if they have a chronic disease with a hair loss problem so we should be notified before the surgery about that and you should also consult your own doctor about if you should go to hair transplant surgery.
It's also called the body hair transplant. For the body hair transplant, we use the grafts or hair focus from outside the donor zone areas like beard, chest, arm or leg. In our clinic, we do not perform an arm or leg hair extraction. There are some clinics that perform it but their success rates are not that very high.
A hair transplant is an organ transplantation like kidney like heart liver transplantation or cornea transplantation. But of course those transplantations are different than the hair transplantation. Because they are more vital so after those organ transplants we usually use immune suppressive agents fo just pressing on the immune system for white for vitality. But, for hair transplant it's a cosmetic surgery so it's not necessary to do some some kind of thing and so it could not be considered as a another organ transplantation from someone but in other organ transplants it is done widely.
Yes you can. But there is one huge point here! Your diabetes should be under control and your glycemic index called hemoglobin a1c should be below 7.2 percent.
No it cannot be. Because your body will react with the immune response and you will have a wide variety of problems over the skin of the head. It's not healthy and it's very dangerous for general health.
There is a very big misconception that when the patient think that dietary restrictions or some other aspects is the main reason of the hair loss. It's not that very correct. Most of the time, the main reason of the hair loss in males is androgenetic alopecia; in females it's different. Of course, a deficiency of some like vitamins minerals can make you more prone to losing your hair. We specifically see it in females but we can also see it in males. Specifically some thyroid diseases, iron deficiency anemias, folic acid, vitamin D deficiencies can cause a hair loss. But to decide it whether it's a dietary reason for the hair loss when you need to run some blood tests to find it out.
if you have a white hair and ask us will the transplanted hair will be white as well the answer is yes because we take the hair from back side of the hair and we get it randomly and evenly so the out of the donor area after the extraction looks even the color of the transplanted hair will be exactly the same that we get from the donor area if it's white color it will be the white if it's the color of your original hair it will be that color
No, you shouldn't. The best hair transplant surgery is the surgery that is performed with the proper technique that fits your needs, and the surgeon or the clinic, you trust yourself.
To be eligible for hair transplant surgery, you should be about the age of 18 and below the age of 60. In some clinics, they can get it after the age of 65 and above. But the decision is given individually. And the next important role is not the age, it is the degree or extent of the hair loss the patient has.
