How to do hair transplantation?
Hair transplantation is the process of adding the hair in the nape area to the sparse or balding areas. Although the duration of this procedure, which is performed by doctors who are experts in hair transplantation, varies according to the person and the procedure to be performed, it takes between 4-8 hours on average.
Generally, 3000 grafts are used for hair transplantation. The number of grafts varies from person to person. 3000 grafts correspond to 7500 hairs on average. Most clinics, hospitals and other hair transplant places do not process more than 3000 grafts. However, with the developing technology, it is possible to transplant up to 7000 grafts to a person for hair transplantation. 7000 grafts correspond to an average of 17.500 hair strands. However, there is a point that it is not an easy process to take and transplant 7000 grafts.
Prices for hair transplantation may vary according to the number of grafts. Since the number of grafts used in the procedures to be performed by people with sparse hair and people without hair is different, a change in price is observed accordingly. The person's hair transplant can be done in 2 or more sessions depending on the number of grafts.
Natural teas and alcohol consumption are avoided for 7 days before the hair transplant procedure. For 10 days after the procedure, alcohol, natural teas and cigarette consumption should be avoided.
