Correct diagnosis of hair diseases and hair loss causes is one of the most critical points in determining the appropriate treatment option.
Diagnosis of hair diseases that constitute a complex disease group requires expertise and experience. Hair diseases and hair loss are a field of dermatology.Expert dermatologist evaluation is required for correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment. Hair transplantation performed under wrong indications causes unsuccessful results and creates disappointment for patients.
In Civas Hair Transplant, dermatology specialist Dr Civas diagnoses our patients after detailed physical examination and necessary tests (pull test, trichogram, dermatoscopic examination…) and a treatment plan is made. Surgery is performed by a board certified surgeon for patients who are eligible for hair transplant. For patients who are not suitable for hair transplant, other treatment methods are recommended by making the necessary information.
One to Two Weeks before the hair transplant procedure
One week before the hair transplant procedure, stop taking the following medication as they may increase bleeding during the procedure. You can resume them 2 days after the procedure.
Smoking constricts blood vessels and decreases blood flow to the scalp, predominantly due to its nicotine content. The carbon monoxide in smoke decreases the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood. These factors may contribute to poor healing after the procedure. You should abstain from smoking at least one week after the procedure.
Inform the doctor of any medication that you are on, or any health conditions that you might have that may affect the surgery such as allergies, bleeding disorders, sleep disorders, asthma, high blood pressure, breathing problems, diabetes, psoriasis, a history of keloids or any other chronic diseases.
Ask the doctor before you take any prescribed drugs 1 day before the hair transplant. If you are taking finasteride or Propecia, you can continue with your dosage as usual. Minoxidil or Rogaine should be stopped 1 day before the procedure then resumed after 2 weeks.
You do not have to shave your hair before you come. For FUE patients, we will shave on the morning of the procedure. For those having FUT or FUE, it is best not to cut your hair for at least two weeks prior to the procedure so that the sutures on the donor’s hair can be well concealed.
Let us know if you have special dietary needs as we will provide meals for you during the surgery breaks.
