Yes, some women are good candidates for hair transplantation when they have pattern baldness similar to that of a man. Women may be candidates in other cases as well — especially if hair loss is localized or associated with previous surgical procedures.
When we are informed of what kind of treatment you are willing to have at least a month prior to your arrival, we will be dealing with you by asking thoroughly your health conditions. Meantime, we can make video conference so that you can forward all the questions you have on mind. When everything is crystal clear, we will give you the details of the treatment procedure and schedules accordingly. When dates become clearer, we will organize your trip plan, accommodation, appointment day with the doctor, and your treatment service.
The grafts take approximately 3 months to begin to grow. Patients generally see their final results in 8 to 10 months.
4) How many follicular units will I need? Is my donor zones' content sufficient to cover bald areas and to leave the necessary quantity of hairs in donor areas of the head?
The exact number of follicular units you will need for achievement of the desired cosmetic result will be defined in the process of free online hair analysis which is free by our assistants; the exact number of follicles achieved will be clearer after the first session of hair transplant process where the hair follicles are collected.
Using our unique local anesthesia, the whole process of the hair transplant is totally painless. Furthermore, both the process of administration of local anesthetic solution and the post-surgical period are virtually painless.
The patient does not need to prepare his hair for the surgery in any way. In the course of transplantation, the hair transplant team cuts only hair follicles which will be transplanted. However most of the patients request to have all their hair cut in the same length to have a better look.
The Most Common Plastic Surgery Complications are:
- Blood loss
- Nerve damage
- Blood clots
- Organ damage
- Dissatisfaction with appearance
- Anesthesia complications
Most of the international patients arriving in Turkey are actually the ones in need of plastic surgery be it weight loss surgery, breast surgeries, liposuction, BBL, etc. The procedures to change our appearance are becoming increasingly common. However, these surgeries don’t come without risks.
For many people, the thought of undergoing surgery is very scary. If you’re considering plastic surgery, it’s important that you’re aware of both the benefits and the risks. Here are some of the most common and most talked about cosmetic surgery complications
1. Hematoma is a pocket of blood that resembles a large, painful bruise. It occurs in 1% percent of breast augmentation procedures. It’s also the most common complication after a facelift, occurring in an average of 1 percent of patients. It occurs more commonly in males than in females.
Hematoma is a risk in nearly all surgeries. Treatment sometimes includes additional operations to drain the blood if the collection of blood is large or growing rapidly. This may require another procedure in the operating room and sometimes additional anesthetic.
2. Seroma is a condition that occurs when serum, or sterile body fluid, pools beneath the surface of the skin, resulting in swelling and sometimes pain. This can occur after any surgery, and it’s the most common complication following a tummy tuck, occurring in 15%-30% percent of patients.
Because seromas can become infected, they’re often drained with a needle. This effectively removes them, although there’s a chance of recurrence.
3. Blood Loss: As with any surgery, some blood loss is expected. However, uncontrolled blood loss can lead to a drop in blood pressure with potentially deadly outcomes.
Blood loss can happen while on the operating table, but also internally, after surgery. Our nurses are qualified if in any case of a blood lessening - they let the Dr know and if advised the patient will need to take an additional blood transfusion of the patient's blood type.
4. Infection: Though post-operative care includes steps to reduce the risk of infection, it remains one of the more common complications of plastic surgery. In some cases, infections can be internal and severe, requiring intravenous (IV) antibiotics.
5. Nerve Damage: The potential for nerve damage is present in many different types of surgical procedures. Numbness and tingling are common after plastic surgery and can be signs of nerve damage. Most often the nerve damage is temporary, but in some cases, it can be permanent.
Most women experience a change in sensitivity after breast augmentation surgery, and 15% experience permanent changes in nipple sensation.
6. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT): is a condition where blood clots form in deep veins, usually in the leg. When these clots break off and travel to the lungs, it’s known as pulmonary embolism (PE).
These complications are relatively uncommon, affecting only 0.09% of all patients undergoing plastic surgery. However, these clots can be fatal.
Abdominoplasty procedures have a slightly higher rate of DVT and PE, affecting just under 1% of patients. The risk of clots is 5 times higher for people having multiple procedures than it is for people having only one procedure.
7. Organ Damage: Liposuction can be traumatic for the internal organs.
Visceral perforations or punctures can occur when the surgical probe comes into contact with internal organs. Repairing these injuries can require additional surgery.
The perforations may also be fatal.
8. Scarring: Surgery typically results in some scarring. Since cosmetic surgery seeks to improve the way you look, scars can be particularly troubling.
Hypertrophic scarring, for instance, is an abnormally red and thick raised scar. Along with smooth, hard keloid scars, it occurs in 1% to 3.7% of tummy tucks.
9. General appearance dissatisfaction: Most people are satisfied with their postoperative outcomes, and research suggests most women are satisfied with breast augmentation surgery. But disappointment with the results is a real possibility. People who undergo breast surgery may experience contouring or asymmetry problems, while those undergoing facial surgeries could simply not like the result.
10. Complications of anesthesia: Anesthesia is the use of medication to make you unconscious. It allows patients to undergo surgery without feeling the procedure.
General anesthesia can sometimes lead to complications. These include lung infections, stroke, heart attacks, and death. Anesthesia awareness, or waking up in the middle of surgery, is very rare but also possible.
More common anesthesia risks include:
- nausea and vomiting
- waking up confused and disoriented
To Sum Up:
On the whole, plastic surgery complications are rare, like less than 1 percent of outpatient surgeries.
As with most surgeries, plastic surgery complications are more common in certain people. For example, smokers, older adults, and people who are obese are more prone to complications.
You can reduce your risk of unwanted side effects by fully vetting your doctor and their credentials. You should also investigate the facility where your surgery will take place.
Educating yourself about the procedure and possible risks, and discussing your concerns with your doctor, will also help you manage your expectations and reduce the risk of complications.
Multiple factors cause hair loss, but the most common is male pattern baldness, an inherited genetic trait. Male pattern baldness can come from the maternal side of the family, or from the paternal side. As a result, what one's grandfathers or uncles look like is often a reliable predictor of future the hair loss and hair pattern you may have.
Generally, the complication risk is very rare. These surgeries are carried out under local anesthesia. Our local anesthetic solution doesn't cause any allergic or anaphylactic reactions. Sophisticated techniques exclude development of scars and infectious complications. There aren't any reports of adverse effects in the post-surgical period.
Small scabs in the recipient area are common and generally present for 1 to 2 weeks. Over the next few weeks, most of the hair shafts will fall out. New hair shafts will begin to grow over the next 3 to 4 months. The final result will be visible in 8 to 10 months.
In the majority of patients who have not had previous scarring to the back of the scalp, or who have well-closed incisions from previous donor procedures, the scar will be completely hidden in the hair line.
The cost of your treatment not only depends on what type of treatment you are willing to have but also the procedures that you will have to go through during the treatment faze. In terms of price, you will be informed about the general estimated price and the minimum price level that will be expected from you. If your doctors require extra tests regarding your treatment during your stay, the price will change accordingly.
Duration of your stay depends on what type of treatment you are willing to consider. After you have decided about the treatment, your health condition will be examined by our doctors, and you will be given thorough information about your treatment details including the duration of your stay.
