The 7 Steps To Full Hair

For men and women around the world, hair loss is a very real, personal struggle. For those who wish to prevent or reverse hair loss, a hair transplant can provide a full, natural solution. Hair transplants use a patient’s own hair to fill in the balding areas left behind by hair loss. The results are truly permanent and will continue to grow over the patient’s entire life.

At the Dr Serkan Aygin Clinic, we offer the most modern, high-quality hair-restoration procedures such as the Sapphire FUE Technique, DHI Method and LLLT Laser Therapy. For more than a quarter of a century, Dr Serkan Aygin has been a pioneer in the field of hair restoration. At our clinic in Istanbul, Here’s what you can expect from your hair transplant procedure, from start to finish.

5. The Hair Transplantation

On the day following your initial exam, we will pick you up at your hotel and drive you directly to the clinic. After a final inspection, the preparations for the treatment begin. This may involve shaving the donor and/or recipient areas (See our page on Unshaven Hair Transplants for more information). Please note that it is advised to let your hair grow out in the weeks leading up to a hair transplant.

Yourself and your surgeon will agree on either a Sapphire FUE (follicular Unit Extraction) or DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) depending on the specifics of each patient. Before the operation, you will be given the option to receive either local anaesthesia or sedation to prevent any pain or discomfort throughout the operation. No matter what is chosen, you will remain conscious throughout the procedure and will be able to watch TV or listen to music.

The first step in the hair transplant procedure is to remove the hair follicles (grafts) from the donor area at the back and/or sides of the head. Depending on the transplant technique used, the grafts are then either stored in a solution to keep them healthy before implantation or are implanted directly into the donor site. More details on the procedures can be found on our Sapphire FUE or DHI treatment pages.

The total process typically lasts between 3 and 8 hours. Following the procedure, we will transport you back to your hotel so you may rest.

6. The Follow-up Examination

The next morning, we will again pick you up and drive you to our clinic for a post-operative follow-up. At this point, you will also be offered LLLT laser therapy treatment.

These help to speed the healing process and to stimulate new hair growth of the newly transplanted hair grafts. We will also explain to you the detailed nature of post-operative care and provide you with all needed medications to ensure a healthy recovery.

7. Post-Operative Care

Hair transplants are minimally-invasive, outpatient procedures. However, they require intensive care in the weeks immediately following the procedure. Over the next 15 days, it is important to avoid strenuous physical activity, swimming, or exposure to direct sunlight. It is also vital to follow the detailed washing and care instructions provided to you by your doctor. After 15 days, you will be able to resume your regular schedule again.
