What to Expect When Getting a Hair Transplant

the risk of getting a hair transplant in turkey

A hair transplant (also known as hair transplantation) is a procedure that involves moving donor hair follicles from one part of the scalp to another, usually to restore hair growth in areas that are thinning or balding. Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) are two of the most common hair transplant techniques. The use of either one of these techniques is dependent on the level of hair loss, hair type, hair texture, and the hair restoration expectations of the client.

The term “donor hair” is the hair used in a hair transplant procedure. It is taken from the back or sides of the scalp, where hair is typically more resistant to balding. Hair on the back of the head is more resistant to balding due to its resistance to the hormone DHT, which is the main root cause of genetic hair loss. The hair is then carefully transplanted to the balding or thinning areas of the scalp, creating a fuller, more natural-looking head of hair.

If you’re considering a hair transplant, here is a glimpse into the process:

1. Consultation with a Hair Loss Specialist:

Consultation with Hair Loss Specialist

The Risks of Getting a Hair Transplant Overseas: Proceed with Caution

Follow-up and Aftercare Challenges:

A hair transplant procedure doesn’t end with the surgery itself. Adequate post-operative care and follow-up appointments are crucial for a successful outcome. Opting for a hair transplant overseas might make it difficult to receive proper follow-up care, especially if you live far away from the clinic. This lack of accessible aftercare can hinder your recovery process and may lead to unsatisfactory results or potential complications. Our team follows our clients throughout the entire process, checking in with multiple in-person follow-ups throughout the 12-month growth period after the procedure, and even longer just to check on your progress.

Cultural Differences and Personalized Approach:

Hair transplantation is a highly personalized procedure that requires a comprehensive understanding of the patient’s aesthetic goals and expectations. Cultural differences may influence the perception of beauty and the understanding of individual preferences. Overseas clinics may not fully grasp your desired outcome or possess the same level of expertise in catering to your unique needs, potentially resulting in dissatisfactory results. Our team recognizes and respects individual preferences, providing a personalized approach and variety of hair transplant methods to ensure the best possible outcome.

Travel-related Considerations:

While getting a hair transplant overseas may seem like a cost-effective option, it’s important to consider the additional expenses involved. Travel costs, accommodation, and potential time off work for an extended period can significantly add to the overall cost. Additionally, the stress of traveling and adapting to a new environment can impact your recovery process negatively. Choosing a local clinic allows for convenience, reduced travel expenses, and a smoother recovery process.
