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.
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.
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 the general anesthesia requests.
The complication and adverse effect of hair transplant surgery is very low and insignificant.
Some minor complications can be at hair transplant surgery like every surgery procedure.
Redness on the transplanted area will take up to 2-8 weeks.
After hair transplantation thinning of the existing hair can be seen for a couple of months.
Post-op pain and scar on the transplanted area will be desteroyed at 7-10 days.
Dull ache occurs after fue operations for one night, 2-3 nights after fut operation.
Topognosis and torpor passes after fue operations immediately, rarely torpor takes long time.
For itch precaution is taken by medication and washing. Ache can be on the donor area post-op 5 to 6 days, this ache can pass by anti imflammatory and analgesic.
Tubercle on the scalp can ocur on the 3rd day and can pass 3-5 days.
Cyst formation: in a couple of weeks spontaneous remission occurs and it seems like very small pustule on the transplantation area.
We have hardly ever seen infection but it can occur every surgery theoretically.
Post-op scar occurance take a long time, if scar is not cleared mycosis can ocur.
Yes. Your normal hair around the transplanted grafts can get thinner or temporal hair loss can ocur. This stiuation can be seen as existing hair loss on tranplantation area.
This situation finishes about two months and spontaneously get beter.
Temporal hair loss and getting thin of the existing hair is called ‘Telogen Effluvia’. This situation should not discomfort patient until the new hair grows because it is temporal.
