Hair Transplant for a Permanent and Natural-looking Result

Hair Transplant for a Permanent and Natural-looking Result
Apr 21,2022

With the current hair transplant technology, you can have natural-looking hair after surgery. The surgeon can harvest healthy hairs from another part of your scalp with hair or other body parts and implant them on bald areas, eliminating the common doll-like look in the 70s and 80s.

During these periods, the doctor will place hair sections called hair plugs on the thinning or bald area, which is quite noticeable. Now, you can have a hair transplant, and your stylist or barber wouldn’t notice that you’ve undergone a hair restoration treatment.

Results significantly depend on the selected surgeon

Although the available techniques for hair transplants can give a natural-looking result, the surgeon you choose for the procedure can determine the hair transplant result you will achieve. Choosing a surgeon that understands hair loss and has experience in hair transplant surgery is important.

Who is suitable for a hair transplant?

For people in their 20s experiencing hair loss, the surgeon will likely advise you to hold off on a hair transplant Istanbul but recommend medication to prevent hair loss. The following conditions are necessary to make you suitable for a hair transplant.

  • Sufficient healthy hair on your scalp for the area with thinning hair or the bald spot
  • The ability to grow hair in the bald area

During the initial consultation, your surgeon will examine you and assess your suitability for the procedure. Your hair transplant surgeon may also recommend a blood test to determine the cause of your hair loss. Some people also undergo a scalp biopsy.

If these examinations and tests show that you are a good candidate for a hair transplant, the surgeon can book you for the hair transplant and inform you what to expect after your treatment.

What happens during a hair transplant?

A hair implant in Turkey can last for 4 – 8 hours. If you need hair on a larger area, you may need more than one session. Your surgeon will likely administer a local anaesthetic to numb the treatment area, so you’ll likely be awake during the procedure. Some patients may need a mild sedative to relax.

The surgeon will remove healthy hairs by cutting a strip of skin from the donor area, then removing the individual hair follicles. An alternative, which may take longer but prevents having a long scar on the back of the hair, is directly removing the individual hair follicles from the scalp. This second option is suitable for those who prefer buzz cuts and other close-shaven haircuts.

Before implanting the harvested hair, the technician will prep the removed hair, and then they will place it on your scalp, bandage the treated area, and give you aftercare advice to care for your transplanted hair at home.

When will the result be visible after a hair transplant?

Most people notice the result of a hair transplant 6 – 12 months after the treatment, but the full result often shows after 12 months. The new hair implants will fall out between 2 – 8 weeks after the hair transplant and start growing by the third month, but the hair may look thinner.

Medications that can preserve your result

Your doctor may recommend medications that treat hair loss to ensure a better and longer-lasting result following a hair transplant. The medication is important because hair loss and thinning can continue after hair transplant surgery.
