Frequently Asking Questions
Since the hairs on the nape are very resistant to the effects of androgens, when transplanted to the recipient area, they do not fall out and they are permanent.
The stay in Turkey can vary for various reasons but on average they are 4/5 days of stay. Patients who return home can also start working the next day, taking care not to strain too much physically so as not to risk influencing the result of the surgery.
The hair follicles are removed evenly and from the densest area using a micromotor with punches measuring 0.8 mm in diameter and 0.4 mm in length. This tool allows us to collect the follicles homogeneously without leaving any visible marks. When the hair is cut very short, small white dots may appear.
Long-term exposure to the sun delays wound healing, which is why it is necessary to protect yourself from the sun. We recommend no more than 30 minutes a day during the first 15 days after surgery.
Technically, there is no age limit for hair transplantation and it can be applied to people over the age of 18.
