F.A.Q In Hair Transplantation

Will my own hair fall out after hair transplantation?

While evaluating whether the patients’ own hair will fall out, the age of the patient, whether there is a history of hair loss in the family or not, the thickness and quality of the hair are considered. Although patients under the age of 40 with a family history of hair loss with fair skin and fine hair structure are at a higher risk, it is not possible to predict with 100% accuracy whether the patient’s own hair will fall out or not.

When can I swim/sunbath after hair transplantation?

In the first month after hair transplantation, the transplanted area is supposed to be protected from direct sunlight, rain and dust. It is possible to go swimming and sauna 1 month after the operation.

When can I exercise after hair transplantation?

Light-paced walks can be done 2 weeks after hair transplantation. Heavy sports (such as running, basketball, football, sports in the gym) can be done 2 months after the operation.

When can I shave my hair after hair transplantation?

Is hair transplantation possible for diabetics?

If the person who wants to have a hair transplant is a diabetic, the patient’s age, weight, medications and blood values are examined before the operation. If all conditions are deemed appropriate, hair transplantation can also be performed for diabetics.
◦ Hair transplantation is performed safely and successfully in most people. This includes those with diabetes, but the success of the result depends on whether your disease is under control. Moreover, the success of the procedure is closely related to which type of diabetes you have. With careful planning and our experienced hair specialists, you can have a successful hair transplant even if you have diabetes.

Duration of Hair Transplantation

Hair transplantation is a long surgical procedure that usually takes six to nine hours. That’s a really long time, and your blood sugar needs to be factored in.
Anxiety, adrenaline and long-term hunger that can be experienced in any hair transplant process can cause the release of another hormone called “glucagon”. Glucagon acts in the opposite direction to insulin and prevents blood sugar from falling too low. High glucagon levels in a person with diabetes can raise that person’s blood sugar to dangerous levels. If you are deemed suitable for hair transplantation, we can take routine blood samples at regular intervals during the procedure to measure whether your blood sugar is at normal levels throughout the procedure.

Healing of the scars after hair transplantation

As you already know or have experienced, some diabetics have problems in healing. Scars that can heal quickly in a person without diabetes can heal in a much longer time in diabetics who cannot keep their blood sugar under control.
Scars also get infected more easily, which can lead to necrosis, or death, of the surrounding tissue. This is due to circulatory problems and is especially manifested in the foot area.
The blood circulation in the scalp is quite good and the problem of scar healing is not very common in this area, however it is still possible. If you choose the FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) technique as the hair transplantation technique, you will have much less problems than the FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) method, since only very small scars will be formed on the scalp in this technique.
Regardless of the method you prefer if you have diabetes, our doctors will want you to visit our hospital more often to check your recovery process.
Consequently, we can say that as long as your type 2 diabetes is under control, our specialists will take the necessary precautions before, during and after the procedure, and will work hard for you to get a successful result from hair transplantation like everyone else.
