Frequently Asked Questions

The main questions from our patients who are treated by SM Hair Clinic and want to be treated.

What is the Post-Hair Transplantation Process?
Thanks to the successful operation of the fue technique, which is the technique used after the hair transplantation process is completed, our client begins to experience the happiness of the hair transplantation session, which he survived without too much pain. All aches and pains that you may experience due to the transplantation process will almost completely disappear until the effect of the local anesthesia applied to avoid pain during the procedure wears off. When the effect of the anesthesia wears off, you will feel comfortable and pain-free as if no operation has been done. The process of removing the liquid injected under the skin to open the hair holes during transplantation can take an estimated 15 days. Although you will not experience any pain or ache due to the injected fluid in this process, you may feel the skin of your scalp swollen due to the swelling it creates. However, at the end of the 15-day period, this liquid will be removed from your skin close to one hundred percent.
Does the transplanted hair fall out later?
It is poured in the form of an incision 3-4 weeks after the operation. This phenomenon is called shock spill. In fact, the producing follicles are planted. As the hair falls, these follicles remain under the skin and begin to produce hair. They start dating after an average of 3 months. They don't all come out at the same time. The output continues for an average of 5 months, increasing the intensity, and continues until the eighth month. Situations such as asymmetry in regions, concentration of one region before, and less frequent occurrence of other regions can be seen. Therefore, it would not be correct to evaluate the result in this period. An average of 8 months should be waited for the evaluation of the outputs. Between the eighth month and the first year, softening of the scar and redistribution of the hairy strands due to this softening and also thickening are observed. When the eighth month and the first year are compared, it is noticed that the first year image is more natural. An average
Is it necessary to stay in the hospital after hair transplantation?
There is no need to stay in the hospital after the procedure, the patient can go home immediately after the procedure.
Will Dressing Be Required After Hair Transplantation?
Afterwards, especially the donor area is closed and the recipient area is left open. This dressing is removed after an average of 2-3 days while the hair is being washed.
How Long Does Hair Transplantation Take?
Under normal conditions, it takes between 6 and 8 hours on average.
Is There Any Redness After Hair Transplant?
There may be a rash during the wound healing process. In non-sensitive skin, this redness is expected to go away within 10 days. However, this redness may last longer on sensitive skin.
What should be considered after the crusts on the hair fall off?
Bath, pool, sauna, sea, heavy sports are not recommended for an average of one and a half months. Smoking and alcohol can be reduced. The patient can use the shampoos he used before.
Who Should Not Have a Hair Transplant?
If there is any systemic disease that will constitute a contraindication to an operation to be performed under local anesthesia, it should be performed after this disease has been treated. It is not recommended for patients with unrealistic expectations and insufficient donor area. It should also be done after active disease treatment in patients with active skin disease. Before the procedure, B12, B6, and zinc levels should be normal, and if any, thyroid disease should be treated. In diabetic patients, blood sugar levels should be at normal levels. The presence of psychological disorders such as trichotillomania, obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression and body dysmorphic syndrome should still be investigated in patients.
What Should Be Considered After Hair Transplant Operation?
Especially the treated area should be protected from all kinds of trauma. Prevention of edema that may occur can be prevented by lying on the patient's back. Due to the edema due to the operation, the hair line may appear asymmetrically or far behind, which may mislead the patient. In fact, it will be possible to make such evaluations only after 8 months. It is not recommended for the patient to drive while going home. She can start using her medications prescribed by her doctors at home. It is recommended to eat light meals after the operation. Again, the use of cigarettes and alcohol is not recommended for an average of 10 days after the operation.
Can Hair Transplantation Be Done Without Cutting the Hair?
Generally, the hair in both the recipient area and the donor area is shortened. In particular, the donor area is shortened in the fue method.
Who Can Have Hair Transplantation?
As long as the donor area is sufficient, anyone with hair loss can have it done. The fue method can be recommended for patients who do not want a straight line scar in the donor area, who wish to have more grafts transplanted in one session, and who want to use short donor area hair. The fue technique is also recommended for candidates who have had fut or fue done before. Fue is a very suitable method for patients who have small openings in the hairline or crown area, who risk shedding in the future, and who may need a second or third operation.
What Care Should People Who Have Hair Transplantation Do?
Skull skin and hair characteristics of people differ from each other. Therefore, after the services received after hair transplantation, the care to be made to the hair of the person should be applied completely when the care is given by the specialist doctor. Otherwise, hair loss or the success of hair transplant surgery may be overshadowed. In general, when the care after hair transplantation is examined, people should not wash their hair for a certain period of time after hair transplantation. In addition, hats should not be worn for a certain period of time. Since there is a possibility of contamination of the hair caused by these actions, places with air pollution should be avoided and heavy work should not be done. One should try to stay away from tiring feelings such as nervousness, stress and anxiety. Most importantly, smokers should not smoke for a long time.
Which Techniques Are Used During Hair Transplantation?
During hair transplantation, the most suitable technique for the person to be transplanted is determined during the examination. Among the techniques used, the best methods for people are the procedures performed with local anesthesia. Local anesthesia prevents the formation of pain sensation during and after surgery. After local anesthesia, hair transplantation is performed with the help of a micro motor. Micro motors used during hair transplantation vary. These variations differ with Sapphire Technique and DHI Technique. Techniques applied in accordance with the head structure of the person are performed by Hair Transplantation Specialist Şefika May in our Clinic in Istanbul.
How Long Does It Take to Grow Hair After Hair Transplantation?
People who have a hair transplant think that their hair will grow out immediately. However, hair regrowth is a process that requires patience and effort. It is observed that the number of hair follicles increases on the head after hair transplantation surgery. It takes time for these hairs to mature and strengthen with the nutrients taken. In addition, since the hair follicles are exposed, the damage it will take slows down the hair regrowth process. Protecting and maintaining the hair for a long time will show that the hair grows observably after a few months. After hair transplantation, doing what is recommended by Şefika May facilitates hair growth. After the necessary checks are made, the use of the shampoo recommended for the hair is considered necessary within the scope of these procedures. Hair growth takes place in a healthy way in hair follicles that are kept clean with the right shampoo and applications.
What Services Does Hair Transplant Cover?
People who will benefit from hair transplantation services can make an appointment via and have their hair follicles examined. Free examination is provided within the scope of hair transplantation services. In addition, local anesthesia for hair and hair follicles taken from parts such as ear and nape for hair transplantation is painless. The fact that the hospital where the hair transplant surgery will be performed is fully equipped is also important for the hair regrowth phase during the recovery period. Most importantly, the services provided are provided by a professional team and advanced technological tools. More than 20 years of experience reveals the quality of hair transplant services. In this way, people who come from our country and the world to have hair transplantation will professionally solve the problem of hair loss. In addition, the guarantee of hair transplantation operations is given by the hospital. This is the assurance of trouble-free and quality service.
How is Hair Transplantation Performed?
Simply, they are surgeries performed by removing the hair on the ear and nape and adding them to the head areas where there is no hair. These surgeries should be done professionally. Otherwise, it may cause problems in the head part. Hair and hair follicles taken for hair transplantation are taken with local anesthesia method. In addition, after the areas where the planting will be done are prepared beforehand, the hair and hair follicles are placed with the help of a micro motor.
