STEP 2 –Preparation for the Procedure
When you agree on which is the correct solution for your case, the final preparations for the procedure will be administered. These include the exact measurement of the number and the kind of follicular units existing in your donor area, the exact calculation of the number of follicular units to be transplanted and the area to be covered. Your medical history report will be completed by the doctor. Other preparations include a required blood test and a photo shoot with your before surgery photos. If you are coming from Abroad, some preparations can be completed either the day before or on the day of your hair transplant procedure.
STEP 3 - Procedure
The surgical transplantation of hair follicles is a routine, simple outpatient procedure. You will be welcomed by our Medical Team usually at 8.00am the day of your surgery. You will meet the team and the physician responsible for your case. He will discuss again with you the details of your Hair Transplantation so as to reconfirm what was agreed and how to proceed. You will then be explained about the stages of your surgery. A hairline design will be agreed with your doctor and then under local anesthetic the extraction process of your hair follicles will start. When this part will be finished the recipient sites will be done and placing of the follicular units will follow. You will have several breaks during the process and you be taken care off, from our Medical team all the time. You should feel no pain and if you do feel any pain in any stage of your surgery you will ask our team to provide you with additional local anesthetic so that pain will go away.
The surgery day will finish by giving you post operation instructions. No bandage will be needed when you leave the operation room. You can drive home after getting the go ahead from the doctor or if you are coming from abroad you can stay in one of our luxury Clinic Accommodation.
