After the operation, you have to wear bandages over your scalp for a day.  Your scalp area may be sensitive, in that case, it is significant to take a painkiller and use your medications if there is any prescribed.

Which technique is better? FUE or DHI?

Both techniques are used for hair transplant treatment. In the FUE (follicular unit extraction) technique, the process is done by opening the channel. In the DHI technique, direct planting is performed without opening the canal. Therefore, DHI is a demanding technique in the field of hair transplantation.

On the other hand, DHI is a demanding and new method of hair transplantation. In this method, the only requirement is shaving the specific area of the patients’ head. Therefore, women prefer the DHI technique. While it is necessary to wait for the opening hair follicles process in the FUE technique, DHI is a practical and short process. Also, the period of recovery is faster compared to the FUE.  

Is hair transplantation suitable for women?

Yes, it is. Although hair transplants in men are associated with male-pattern hair loss, the demand for hair transplant treatment in women has increased over the past years. According to research, almost 21 million women in the US experience hair loss. Approximately 40% of them are hair transplant patients. Thanks to this method, female patients have a very natural result without requiring a shave.

Is hair transplant possible without shaving?

 Simply, yes, it is possible to have a hair transplant without the shaving process, yet, still, patients and other aspects are our main considerations. The size of hair loss in a specific area, in other words, the exact number of the transplanted hair follicle is a determining factor. If the detected area is small, the surgery can be carried out without shaving.

What is the ideal age to undergo hair transplantation?

It is hard to mention a fixed ideal age for hair transplantation. It is possible to consider having the operation if you are 21 years old and above.  In general, to get the best results, the patient should be decently evaluated and selected to undergo a hair transplantation procedure.

How can you style your hair after the process?

Once your transplanted hair starts growing, you can easily use it as your normal hair. Since there is no difference between the transplanted hair and your usual hair, you may style it as you like. Even you can have your hair cut when you feel ready to do it. However, consider not using heat styling tools for at least one week period of time.
