Hair transplant before and after images are often the clincher for those who have been weighing up a procedure for some time. Deciding to commit to the surgery, as well as the cost, can be a long and critical decision for the everyman suffering from hair loss.
Hair transplant before and after examples should be provided at an initial consultation. It is important that patients are shown accurate representations of before and after hair transplants. Many just-for-profit facilities will show their patient’s fake case studies to rush them to the operating theatre. Clinics that falsify their hair transplant before and after images should be avoided. It is imperative for a successful hair transplant, performed by accredited medical professionals that are skilled and experienced in this area. Images shown to a patient should be comparable to their own stage of hair loss and hair type. It is important to keep this accurate as possible in order to manage customer expectations and to inform them of what can realistically be achieved from after their hair transplant!
After hair transplant images also provide patients will the best, and most accurate, an indication of the re-growth and healing process. Although every hair transplant case is different and all treatment plans should be adjusted as such, hair transplant before and after images are the best representation a patient can use to gauge an understanding of this period.
Hair Transplant Turkey Before And After
Patients that have decided to travel abroad or opted for hair transplant Turkey should also have access to consultations both before and after their procedures.
As Turkey is notably the best and most common provider of these procedures, it is quite commonplace to have hair transplant Turkey before and after consultations in the UK. Many clinics will be able to provide an initial consultation in central UK cities before hair transplant takes place. This provides the patient with ample opportunity to investigate their options and to see their potential surgeon’s personal before and after hair transplant cases studies, which is the best indicator for the success and experience of the medical team at that facility.
If you are unable to attend an initial consultation before or after hair transplant Turkey, a consultant should be able to speak to the patients over the phone.
Patient’s should meet their surgeon before a hair transplant in another consultation. At this stage, if necessary, the surgeon and patient can map a new hairline and talk through the procedure again.
Consultations Before Hair Transplant
Items to discuss with the consultant before hair transplant include:
- Suitability for certain hair transplants (FUE/FUT/DHI etc)
- Length of procedure
- Hair transplant before and after images
- Size of the donor area
- Integration of techniques – i.e. can you incorporate PRP treatments, unshaven hair transplant etc.
- Aftercare process
- Aftercare timeline
Check-Ups After Hair Transplant
Immediately after hair transplants, patients should be invited to a check up with their surgeon. This should take place the day after surgery in order for the surgeon to assess the bleeding and to check the incision areas as medication may need to be adjusted accordingly.
After hair transplant, regular check ups are not required if the aftercare process has been properly explained to the patient. They should be educated on how to care for their new hair, including how best to wash the area, whether that be facial hair transplant or a traditional head-hair transplant. However, it is imperative that patients have access to a medical team should they experience any side effects.
The first two weeks after hair transplant are critical for re-growth and the health of the new hair. This is why it is often advised that patients avoid any activity with germs (such as public transport) or excessive sweat, (such as the gym) or anything that could dislodge the new implants. Patients should be provided with an aftercare package that means they can attend a consultation or check-up should they require it, or a help-line that provide qualified medical advice.
