Does hair transplantation have disadvantages?2021-06-27T19:43:33+00:00

It is possible that the hair will be damaged in the processes planned and applied by inexperienced and non-experts. One of the most important steps to be considered is the correct collection and removal of the hair to be transplanted. Excessive collection of hair follicles wears out the donor area and can cause the hair to look untidy. In hair transplantation, the main donor area is the nape. The condition of the scalp in this area significantly determines the capacity of the operation. There is a safe amount of graft that can be taken from the nape donor area; Although this amount varies from patient to patient, it is between 4 and 5 thousand grafts in an average session. If the operation requires a larger number of grafts, a second operation is planned. The reason for this is to ensure that the patient gets maximum results with minimum damage.
If hair follicles are removed from the nape area in one session, above the safe limits, a nape area that has lost its natural appearance may be encountered after the operation.
