When choosing a hair transplant surgeon, one of the best places to look is at their before & after pictures. Any talented doctor will have hundreds, if not thousands, of satisfied clients who are eager to show off their results.
What Makes A Good Hair Transplant?
The most vital factor in the success of a hair transplant surgery is the skill and talent of the surgical team. Hair transplants are highly precise, delicate procedures that require experienced staff in order to create the best hair transplant Turkey before and after results. Before any procedure, all of our clients are evaluated in person by one of our doctors to determine the very best course of action. This professional consultation ensures that each client gets the treatment that’s right for them.
During the transplant itself, extreme care is taken to place each hair graft evenly and in line with the natural angle and direction of your hair growth. Whether you choose a Sapphhie FUE or a DHI hair transplant, your results will be your own full, natural hair.
How Long Before I See Results From a Hair Transplant?
Hair transplants at the Dr Serkan Aygin Clinic are outpatient procedures that typically last between 4 and 6 hours. Visible results, however, will take time to appear. Every patient’s hair regrowth will vary but, in general, the postoperative timeline looks like this:
- For the first 24 hours after your procedure, your head will need to be bandaged to allow the grafts to take root and to prevent infection.
- After 3 days, you will be able to resume washing your hair. This is a specific process and will be explained to you in detail during your follow-up appointment.
- Over the first 3-7 days, most patients will experience “shock hair loss”. This is where the newly implanted hairs will fall out and can be alarming. However, this is a completely normal and expected part of the healing process.
- Over the next few weeks, your new hair will continue to shed and you will return to a pre-operative look about one month after the procedure.
- After 3 months, new hair will begin to grow and this growth will continue to accelerate over the next several weeks.
- By 12-18 months, you should see full results.
After the Transplant
At the Dr Serkan Aygin Clinic, we stand by our work and we know that you’ll be satisfied. Just because your operation is finished, doesn’t mean that your support from us stops. The day after your hair transplant, we will give you a comprehensive follow-up appointment with our experts. During this appointment, we will provide you with the full details of your post-operative hair care needs.
At this time, you will also receive LLLT laser hair therapy or PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) treatment to help ensure a full, healthy recovery. We will keep checking in with you over the next year to make sure that everything is going smoothly and to answer any questions you may have.
How Do I Take Care Of Transplanted Hair?
After about one month, you will be able to wash your hair and treat it as you always have. However, in the days and weeks immediately following your hair transplant in Istanbul operation, it is necessary to follow a detailed hair-care regimen. During your follow-up appointment, we will explain this to you in detail and will provide you with medicated lotion and shampoo to use for the next 4-6 weeks.
For the first 15 days after your procedure, it is absolutely imperative to avoid touching or rubbing the recipient area as the newly transplanted grafts are still loose. Patients are also advised to avoid any strenuous or stressful activity and to keep their heads as elevated as possible during this time. Further, it is best to avoid direct sunlight, seawater, or pool water during the first few weeks.
