Although hair transplantation, which is one of the popular applications of recent years, is reliable and comfortable, all hair transplantation operations are actually surgical operations.
Hair transplantation procedures, which are the procedures that should be performed in the operation room, have many advantages in themselves as well as some risks and complications in every surgical operation.
Minimizing these risks and complications is under the control of both candidates and specialists of hair transplant. These are procedures that require certain preparations and attention before and after hair transplantation. Regardless of the technique used, there are issues to be considered regarding all hair transplantation procedures, both during the preparation process and during the recovery period.
One of the first things to be done in the preparation period is to stop the blood thinners about 10 days before the hair transplant. Aspirin, ecopirin etc., and the use of blood thinner injections should also be discontinued before the operation. The reason for this is that hair transplantation is basically a surgical operation. As with any surgical operation, there is a risk of bleeding in hair transplantation. Discontinuation of blood thinners approximately 10 days before the operation reduces the risk of bleeding. It brings blood coagulation level to normal level. Thus, possible bleeding that may be encountered not only during the procedure but also during the healing process is largely prevented.
In addition to the preparation period, there are issues that candidates should pay attention to during the healing process after hair transplantation. The first and perhaps the most important of these is to protect the transplanted area from possible traumas and impacts. Especially in the first week, since the recipient area will be very sensitive, a possible trauma may cause bleeding in this area.
In addition to traumas or using blood thinners, there is usually no serious bleeding after hair transplantation. However, each candidate’s scalp structure and body structure are different. Therefore, some candidates may not bleed, while others may. For this reason, it is necessary to check whether there is a possible medical condition that precedes coagulation in the blood of the candidates in the blood test before hair transplantation.
Hair transplantation treatments are applications where many different techniques are actively used today. In addition to centers that have been accepting candidates for decades, such as the best hair transplant center Medhair Clinic, there are many other hair transplant centers in Istanbul. The common point of every center is undoubtedly the application of different techniques. In the operations where more than one technique of hair transplantation is used, the technique used is also an important condition when it comes to bleeding. For example, the probability of bleeding in the FUE technique, which many doctors now consider as a scarless operation, is much lower than the FUT technique. Although the FUT technique is accepted as an old technique today, it is still a technique that continues to be applied in some clinics. In this technique, bleeding may occur especially in the donor area after the operation. Although slight bleeding can be accepted in the FUT technique, if the bleeding continues, a doctor should be consulted.
A large amount of bleeding is not expected in a hair transplant operation that is planned correctly and applied by a team of experts in the field. However, as with any surgical procedure, the risk of complications must be considered.
When a possible bleeding is occurred, the first thing to do is to control the course of bleeding. Although slight bleeding is acceptable, if there is a severe crusting and blood clot in the bleeding area, it should never be intervened, the blood clot should not be broken with a fingernail or anything else. However, the area where the bleeding occurred should never be itchy. The area where the bleeding occurred should not be wiped vigorously with any cotton pad. If the bleeding continues to increase instead of being mild, a doctor should be consulted.
At the end of the hair transplantation procedures, the donor area is bandaged. After this bandaging, slight bleeding is expected in this area at first. Bandages are removed in an average of 1 week. Afterwards, bleeding is not expected. However, as we mentioned above, the technique used in hair transplantation is important when there is bleeding after hair transplantation. Bleeding can be seen frequently, especially in the FUT technique, which is an old technique.
