Hair Transplantation Processes

In this article, NOA MedCare, a United Kingdom-based healthcare travel agency informs its visitors about the details of hair transplantation processes.


In general, it is possible to group hair transplantation in three headings. These include, before the operation, during the operation, and after the operation. We have provided detailed information for each group on our website but in this article, we will provide general information as well.


Before Hair Transplantation Operation


This is the stage that begins with the examination and determination of the first session date. In general, all of the operations are completed in a single session that takes approximately six hours. Our doctors will inform you about what you need to do before the operation to get yourself ready for the day that will change your image permanently.


It is not recommended to drink alcohol at least a day before the operation. You will undergo microsurgery and alcohol can affect the efficiency of local anesthesia. Moreover, it will be better to not smoke at least a day before the operation as well as a week after the operation. This can help you to recover faster by improving the blood circulation in your scalp.


In case you are using special medications regularly, our doctors will request the names of them. If some of these medications act as blood thinners or may cause complications during or after the surgery, our doctors may recommend a medication vacation 3 days before the operation.


Each patient is a unique individual with unique needs. This is why our doctors will interview you about your medical conditions and they may recommend further suggestions that you need to perform or not perform before the operation for your safety and best results.


During Hair Transplantation Operation


As we mentioned before, the operation will take approximately 6 hours and you will have to sit still during the operation. This is why it will be better for you to wear comfortable clothes. In addition to this, you will be kindly requested not to talk during the operation since it may affect the course of the practice.


Our doctors will inform you about everything to make sure that you will have a comfortable and problem-free operation. They will also recommend you to come with a full stomach.


After Hair Transplantation Operation


You will not be allowed to wash your hair for at least 3 days after the operation. After this period, you will have to wash your hair with special procedures and not allowed to use towels for at least 2 to 3 weeks. The first month is the riskiest period for this operation but after a month, you can go back to your everyday life and wash your hair the way you want as usual.


Our doctors will inform you about how you should wash your hair and what kinds of products you need to use to prevent any damage to the transplanted grafts. Plus, no one will be able to notice that you have undergone a hair transplant operation after a month from the operation.


It will be worth to note that it may take about a year and a half to fully recover and achieve the image you desire. But of course, your new hair will start to grow only in 3 months. Again, our doctors will inform you about every stage you need to know and how you need to treat your scalp and hair for a while until the full recovery.
