1) Who is a suitable candidate for hair transplant?
Patients that are diagnosed with adult male androgenic hair loss (male pattern baldness) and have appropriate donor area can have FUE hair transplant.
2) Is curly hair not suitable for hair transplant?
It is almost impossible for people with extremely curly hair and especially with African descent to have FUE hair transplant.
3) Do seasons play a role in hair transplant?
The success rate of the operation is exactly the same in all the seasons, so you can get your new look at any time of the year!
4) Can you get a hair transplant with GREY hair?
Yes, gray hair can be transplanted as safely and successfully as any other colored hair.
5) Is it required to cut the hair down to 1mm for the FUE technique?
It is necessary to shave the back of the neck in order to harvest the hair follicles from that donor area. However, on the transplant area (zone), it is unnecessary to shave, and long hair makes it difficult to open up and transplant the grafts into the channels.
6) When can I go back to work?
There are no restrictions on return to work within a few days after hair transplant medically. However, the cosmetic healing is seen within 8-10 days. The scabs (crusts) developing during this period may bother the patient, therefore getting 10 days off from work may be advised for patients working in sensitive jobs.
7) Is it required to take medication after the procedure?
An antibiotic and a painkiller are prescribed. No medicine is prescribed to make the procedure more successful or to stimulate hair growth. Only Finasteride and Minoxidil can be used if the doctor finds suitable and prescribes it.
8) When do I see results? (How soon will I see results?)
You can see the results in 6-12 months for the frontal and mid-scalp, and in 9-16 months for the crown transplants.
9) Is there any restriction in diet or social life after the procedure?
Approximately 10 days after the procedure, patients can resume their routine life and activities.
