The first stage of the hair transplant begins with the analysis of the hair structure of the patient and the detection of the hair follicles in the donor site area. After the hair analysis, the grafts are removed and implanted during the operation which generally lasts for about 6-7 hours.
Some hair transplant clinics discharge patients after the operation and cut the relationship with the patient soon after. At Este Prime we are with you for the long term. We have UK advisors who can assist with any post op questions be it 1 day, 1 month, 1 year or 10 years later.
A successful hair transplantation operation will provide much more impressive and natural results if aftercare advice is followed. Some clinics that provide hair transplants often do not see the stage of aftercare as part of the hair transplant process. However, Este Prime UK believes that the patient should be followed during the first 6 to 12-month period after the hair transplant and that development analysis should be observed. We guide our patients throughout the early days of healing, post op care and beyond. It is important that a post op aftercare plan is in place for when the patient returns to normal daily life, and to ensure that no activities are done which can put the transplant at risk.
Hair is the most polluted and germ-containing region of our body. Due to the air or environment it can take a long time to grow. Hair, dust, dirt etc… Small particles can damage the roots of the hair transplantation. For example, an architect or engineer who works on a construction site should minimise the risk of contaminants post op. Solidified dust can cause long term damage to the hair follicles. So care should be taken. We can discuss this during the planning stage to ensure that work and lifestyle will have no ill effects on a transplant when returning home.
How To Care For Your Hair Transplant?
Early on post op, very gentle massaging techniques should be used on the scalp and grafted areas. Este Prime Uk will provide you at your post op appointment all the shampoo and aftercare lotions required and instructions on how to use them. We advise against drying the hair with hairdryers as this can be damaging to the newly grafter hair. A dry soft fluffy cotton towel used very gently is the safest way to dry the head area
Exposing the transplanted hair to sunlight is another factor that can damage the hair follicles. Avoid sun exposure. Your surgeon will advise on how many days post op a loose hat can be worn.
Este Prime Uk as part of its aftercare package will keep in regular touch with patients, to ensure that healing and growth is progressing as expected. Our aftercare does not end when you leave Istanbul on your journey home.
