Hair transplantation is an aesthetic medical process whose purpose is to transplant hair in bald or sparse areas of the head, scalp, eyebrows or face area (in cases of burns or small spot areas). The transplant is performed by extracting hair follicles from the "donor" area, which is through the nape of the neck and the sides of the ears, and transplanting them into the ice area
Most of the patients who perform the transplant are between the ages of 25 and 70 plus. The hair transplant procedure is carried out after a full and comprehensive examination of the balding areas and the donor area. Performing the transplant at too young an age will not be efficient and effective over time to the same extent.
The hair transplant procedure is performed using local anesthesia when the patient is awake but does not feel any pain. After the treatment there are up to 4 days of recovery in which the patient can feel some discomfort but the feeling passes in a short time.
Indeed, the hair transplant will look completely natural and no one will notice that it was done hair transplant. At My Hair, we perform hair transplantation using the advanced FUE method, after which no scars remain and the level of density of the hair is high, similar to normal hair growth. Also, the direction of hair growth is natural. It should be remembered that this is a self-implantation, we shed the hair from your head to yourself so that the hair that grows consists of the same DNA and will look exactly the same, in color, type (smooth, curly, etc.), thickness, etc.
In most cases, one transplant is enough, even if the area of baldness is large and if the donor area is of high quality, we will extract the maximum possible follicles and transplant the follicles in a smart way so that the front area of the head receives the largest amount of follicles that will be transplanted in the densest form in front and give the required effect of restoring a line the hair to its original place at the front of the forehead. The rest of the follicles are scattered throughout the rest of the areas downwards in a wider density. In most cases a smart implant will be sufficient.
In most cases, even if you want to perform another transplant - it should be done only after 9-12 months from the first transplant. If after this period we can diagnose that the client's donor area can withstand another extraction of follicles, it will be possible to consider another transplant.
Yes - it is possible, there is no obstacle
In most cases, especially in men, the entire head is shaved - both in the donor area and in front.
In women's transplants, we work with a slightly different method in order not to put the woman through the trauma of several months without hair, and it is possible to perform a transplant without shaving the transplanted area.
Yes, it is possible to perform a hair transplant in scarred areas, you need to examine the depth of the scar and its shape on the surface of the skin to diagnose and try to guess if a transplant in the area can be successfully absorbed, in most cases we recommend trying to transplant and taking the chance that the transplant will be successful and the roots will be able to be fed by the blood vessels around the follicle despite the damage which is on the skin.
Turkey is considered a powerhouse in the field of hair transplants - on average, about 100,000 hair transplants are performed there per year.
The location is accessible and close, it is a short flight. The medical equipment at the hair transplant hospital is among the most advanced in the world and the medical staff that performs the hair transplant is professional and experienced.
The medical regulation in Israel is stricter and stricter than in countries like Turkey or Albania, and requires only doctors to perform all stages of the transplant.
Since it is a very long procedure (each transplant takes between 6-8 hours), the cost of carrying out the treatment in Israel by doctors alone is very expensive. As a result of the fact that this treatment can be performed at half the price abroad, most of the customers in Israel consume this treatment abroad, which does not generate enough work, experience and professionalism for the Israeli doctors who, despite this, are trying to perform the transplant in Israel. In countries that also allow a team of nurse technicians and paramedical teams to perform the process - the treatment times are shorter and the work teams are skilled and experienced and this is what determines the successful transplant result.
In Turkey and Albania, the medical regulation allows those with a profession and education at the level of nurses/paramedics who are paramedical teams, to perform hair transplant treatments. In these countries it is customary to call these operations by the honorific name of "Doctor" - which does not represent medical education as is customary and accepted in Israel.
No. At the My Hair company we are with you hand in hand all the way, the patient enjoys the close accompaniment of a guide who is with him throughout the entire procedure from the moment he gets on the plane to the consultation, the treatment, all the reviews until the return to Israel and of course we continue to accompany the transplanted in Israel including visits and photo comparison every few months.
The area where you may experience discomfort in the first few days is the donor area only - in the nape of the neck it can take up to a week for the place to be sensitive.
There is no sensitivity or pain in the area of the transplant itself, but at the same time this area must be very careful during the first month not to receive a blow or injury that could cause damage to the new follicles in the area.
Performing a hair transplant allows immediate return to work. It may be noticed that a treatment was performed on the head, but with the transplantation methods performed today, there is no obstacle to returning to work as usual the day after the transplantation
Within 30 days you can return to normal sports activities. In the first month, the transplanted area should not be exposed to a blow or injury.
