Does hair transplant hurt?
Hair transplantation is considered a non invasive surgery. The local anesthetic used has prolonged analgesic action, so the patient will not feel any kind of pain. The operated area remains silent for several hours after surgery. In the days following the intervention you may experience a slight pain in the receiving and donating areas, which will disappear within a few days.
How long does hair transplant last?
The duration of the intervention depends on the number of bulbs that will be transplanted. It usually takes 6 to 8 hours.
Who can undergo hair transplantation?
Hair transplantation can be men and women, from 18/20 years old. Since it is a little invasive, almost everyone can undergo hair transplantation, except in patients with serious health problems, such as immunosuppression.
What is the risk of hair transplantation?
Since it is a non-invasive operation performed in local anesthesia, the risks of such intervention are low. The only drawbacks that our patients experience are mostly in the post operative: itching, headaches and slight swelling, but they disappear within a few days.
Will you notice blank spaces in the donor area?
No. One of the biggest concerns about who intends to undergo hair transplantation is this. The advantage of FUE is just that. The doctor in fact ensures that close to the follicular unit extracted there are others, ensuring the absence of empty spaces in the donor area.
How long is it necessary for the transplanted hair to recover?
Once transplanted, the transplanted hair will fall as the bulb stays inside the groove and begins to regenerate the hair. Hair will begin to grow again after about 3 months and will continue to grow in the following months. Around the seventh month, patients will notice that their hair is naturally natural.
Will you notice scars after the transplant?
Absolutely not. After 2/3 weeks, during which croutons can be formed in areas affected by transplantation, there will be no sign.
What to do after the intervention?
After the intervention you will need to follow the instructions of the medical staff to maximize the result of the intervention. Interpreters in the clinic will provide you with all the necessary instructions for products to be used and activities to be avoided in the weeks following the transplant (such as sports and physical exertion).
How does the entire stay take place?
Once arriving at the airport the patient will be picked up by a driver and taken to the hotel (www.modushotelistanbul.com). The hotel is near the clinic, so you will be taken at the time agreed in the morning (usually around 7.30 / 8.00) and taken to the clinic. Here you will be taken from the blood for further analysis and there will be an interview with our doctors during which the patient will be able to indicate what his / her expectation of the outcome of the surgery is and the doctor will check the hair condition of the hair patient. After that, the operation will begin, during which you can take a break and eat. Once the operation is over, the patient can leave the clinic and return the next day to change the band. During the entire trial you will be assisted by Italian interpreters in the clinic, who will be at your side from the moment you decide to take the intervention at Estepera, in the following months, during which doctors will carry out checks (via sending photo). It is advisable to stay in Istanbul for 2 or 3 nights.
Is it possible to do a distance consultation?
Sure. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with name and phone number. You will then be contacted by one of our interpreters, via Whatsapp (or other than you have indicated), and you will be asked to submit your photos so that we can get a preliminary consultation with our doctors.
