In practice, hair follicles taken from the nape are transplanted to the targeted bald area. These hair follicles taken are called grafts. In rare cases, there is not enough healthy hair in the neck or temple area of the person. In such cases, hair follicles can be taken from other parts of the person that contain hair, such as the arms or chest wall. The application takes place in a few hours depending on the amount of hair loss. If the balding area is very large, several sessions may be required to complete the treatment.
Generally, the intervention is performed under local anesthesia with sedation. After hair transplantation, a special bandage is applied to the head. The person is discharged after 1-2 hours. Although it is very rare, pain relief is controlled with painkillers. Generally, after 3 days of home rest, it is possible to return to business life with the head covered. The first dressing is done on the 5th day.
