During the operation, we protect the grafts, which are extracted from the donor area, under ideal conditions by preserving them in a special solution and cooling process that maintains the appropriate conditions.

 

12.Why micro grafting FUE?

 

Micro FUE method is the process of extracting follicular hair units from donor area by using micro punch tips of 0,6 or 0,8 diameter, without leaving any incision marks or stitches, and implanting these follicles one by one to the recipient area. The extracted grafts are transplanted into the balding areas of the patient.
With Micro FUE technique, the accurate angle and direction can be given the hair follicles, which is essential for achieving a natural appearance.
Due to the comfort offered to patients and the successful results achieved, FUE method has become one of the most preferred techniques.
We are very experienced in this technique, and we are proud of providing natural looking as well as dense hair to our patients from all around the world.

 

13.Can ı cut my hair before having a hair transplant procedure?

 

Prior to the hair transplant procedure, if you maintain the length of your hair, without having it cut or shaved, during the consultation session, your doctor will be able to obtain more information and assess your hair loss condition more accurately. For this reason it is not recommended to cut your hair before consultation.

 

14.Should ı stop drinking alcohol prior. To the hair transplant procedure?

 

As alcohol can adversely interact with the medication (local anesthetics) used during the procedure, you should avoid drinking alcoholic beverages or taking narcotic drugs for at least 24 hours prior to the operation. It is also recommended that you avoid drinking alcohol if you are taking antibiotics after the procedure.

 

15.Can ı smoke before or after the operation?

 

Smoking causes constriction on your vessels and this may affect your hair growth. We advise you to stop smoking 24 hours prior to the operations and 1 week after the operation.

 

15.Do ı need to stop taking drugs that ı regularly use before the hair transplant procedure?

 

First of all, you should inform your doctor who you visit at regular intervals for ongoing follow-up about the hair transplant operation and once you have received approval to temporarily stop taking your medication, you should discontinue taking medications that might thin your blood such as aspirin for about three days prior to the operation.
Prior to the hair transplant operation, please inform us about your current health condition and the medications (if any) that you are taking.

 

16.How long does it take to completely recover from a hair transplant procedure?

 

FUE hair transplant is a minimally invasive operation, and post-operational recovery is very fast. After the operation, only small scabs on the transplanted area and tiny red dots at the donor area can be observed.
15 days after the operation, the donor & transplanted area will return to their normal appearance.
