Hello Everyone – I am Dr Koray Erdogan Is the Hair transplant a Medical or an Aesthetical Procedure? Of course it’s a Medical procedure I believe that this type of procedures have a stronger accent in the aesthetic side If we make a precise evalaution and with a precise Donor Area Capacity determination. we need to adjust the right frontline. With this line, we can make a human face longer or wider We can balance the shape of the face and the patients’ image. This is related to an aesthetic side and the doctors’ vision and experience. We need to indicate here that as always I believe the natural look is a more important criterion than higher density Because if we do not catch the right distribution Even if it’s dense it will not look natural It might be very difficult to make a person satisfied. After how long you can reach to the final result? According to the Donor Capacity, we determine the front line and do the procedure… The result you would like to reach is changeable from person to person Approximately time that we can say One year After 12 months you can reach 90% of the result, but after the 6th-month 5th month the result shows their potential. Okay, then – Is this permanent procedure? In general, the patients are saying Doctor I would like to do this procedure only once… And to solve this problem But as in every aesthetic procedure, I am not indicating only to the hair transplant In fact, Happy for the rest of your life with hair transplant doesn’t exist We are the living presence, Even when we reach a growth with the transplanted hair but after a while In 10 years of time Even if we do not want a part of the growth of transplanted hair can be lost. Becasue the area wherefrom we take the grafts is not permanent and stabile When you were 18 years old the donor areas density does not have the same density when you reach 50-60 age In general, it is not the same, around 20% of the capacity is lost. That is why you should know the following The hair transplant is Medical procedure with an aesthetical accent The doctors’ vision and experience will affect your appearance, the natural appearance might be more important than density But this is not a procedure that you can do once and be saved for the rest of your life. Probably in 10 years of time you can have again a procedure. even if you have a perfect result the second procedure might be needed. And there is a reason that in one session is not always possible to achieve complete coverage. In this case after one procedure we can have another procedure. Between the first and second procedure how much the patient should wait For example if we have a patient that according to the Norwood Scale has lost hair completely In one session is not possible to do all the coverage. For the second procedure, we need to have at least 1 year of time. In this way – Some procedures we need to divide in 2 sessions.
