Some patients experience hair loss at a young age. The most appropriate treatment for these patients prior to hair transplant procedures is medication to stop hair loss. For this reason, PRP and Mesotherapy treatments are applied. With these procedures, hair loss can be prevented and hair transplant may not be necessary.
“A hair transplant is performed under local anesthesia. Local anesthesia can be a bit painful, but you won’t feel any pain during the surgery. In our clinic, an anesthesiologist considers the patient’s age, health condition, medical history, and the duration of the surgery to determine which drugs will be used and how the anesthesia will be given before the operation, and performs the most appropriate anesthesia for the surgery.”
After hair transplantation, a slightly reddish crust may form in the recipient area. These crusts usually disappear about 7-10 days after surgery. The redness subsides and after about 2 to 4 weeks the redness goes away.
It has already been scientifically proven that smoking can cause hair loss due to decreased blood flow. Low blood flow will accordingly slow down the healing process. For this reason, we recommend that you quit smoking in order not to affect the results of hair transplantation.
First of all, it is very important to determine the factors that cause hair loss in the patient. If there are hormonal reasons, hair transplantation does not benefit women. In addition, if the diagnosis of diffuse hair loss has been made, the operation is not suitable. Otherwise, the donor area is also affected. This is an undesirable situation. For this reason, the exact cause of hair loss in women should be investigated and treatment should be sought from diagnosis.
