However, if you do not have a healthy donor area due to chemotherapy or Alopecia Universalis, you should consider postponing or canceling your treatment.

Itinerary for Your Facial Hair Transplant In Turkey
Day of the procedure;
Your personally assigned Remedy Istanbul host will welcome you at the hospital. Before your operation, blood tests and covid antibody tests will be done. After your test results came within the accepted range, you will have a face to face consultation with your surgeon.
You can ask all your questions during this consultation. The surgeon will examine your scalp overall, which means looking for the double grafted follicles, analyzing the scalp type and density of transplantation on preferred areas.
This consultation will last until you agree to the treatment plan. Then, the medical team will prepare you for the operation.
Establishing vascular excess, shaving the hair, and sterilizing the operation room are some of the preparations you will experience.
Your operation will last between 4-7 hours, depending on the number of the graft will be transplanted.
After harvesting follicles from your donor area, you will have a lunch break. In the meantime, extracted follicles will rest in organ transplant liquid to contain its form.
In the second part of the procedure, harvested grafts will be transplanted in the preferred areas. The natural angle of the hair follicles will be taken into consideration while transplanting them for a more natural look.
After your hair transplant operation with Remedy Istanbul, your host will explain to you the post-operative instructions and present you with the necessary medical equipment and medications. Then you will be accompanied to your hotel with a VIP transfer.
The day after the surgery;
You are expected to avoid physical activity as much as you can in order not to hurt newly transplanted grafts. You can spend the day in your comfortable hotel room.
The second day after the surgery;
Remedy Istanbul medical team will be waiting for you at the hospital for your first washing session. You will be able to see and learn the tips on how you are expected the wash your hair.
The third day after the surgery;
You can go back to your country if you would like. There is no need for a medical team intervention anymore. However, if you plan to stay for more than ten days in Tukey, on the 10th day, you can have your scab removing session. If not, do not worry. The foam given to you will soften the scab so they can fall by themselves while washing.
After your operation ends, your aftercare process starts. Aftercare is the most critical phase in beard and mustache transplant operations. Patients who follow the surgeon’s post-operative instructions are expected to have a better healing process and better results in a shorter time. Let’s take a look at your aftercare process in terms of your responsibilities and possible outcomes.
On the procedure day, your host will present you with complimentary medical supplies such as foam, shampoo, spray, vitamins, and a cushion. Also, anti-swelling and painkiller pills will be provided to you. You are prescribed to use them until they are finished.
You are asked to use the protective cushion for 15 days after the surgery to protect the donor area from complications. Also, the second day after the surgery Remedy Istanbul medical team will wash your transplanted hair for the first time. After that, you are expected to wash your hair gently with the foam you are given.
On the 10th day after your surgery, if you are still in Turkey, Remedy Istanbul medical team will arrange another consultation to remove your scabs. If you already went back to your country, the foam will make the scabs get softer and they will shed within a few days.
On the 15th day, you can stop using the cushion and start using shampoo while washing your head. If you want a faster recovery in terms of skin rashes and itchiness, you can use oily ointments to soften and moist the area.
At the first month anniversary, your host will get in touch with you to see if everything is going well for you. You will be asked to send a couple of pictures taken from different angles. Your medical team will evaluate your recovery process.
At the second month anniversary after your beard and mustache transplant in Turkey, you will start using the spray on your transplanted areas. This spray will enhance the healing process while strengthening the newly transplanted follicles. Around the second month, patients can observe growing of the transplanted hair. However, the transplanted hair will fall a couple of times before growing up permanently. This is called shock loss. It is highly normal and expected.
In the sixth month after your beard and mustache transplant in Turkey, you will see approximately 70% of the final result. But the full recovery takes around a year in most of the patients. Your host will be in touch with you at your six-month anniversary also.
On the first anniversary, your host will call you to evaluate your final results. Keep in mind that transplanted hair follicles are located permanently, so you will not experience another hair loss.
During this one-year aftercare process after your beard and mustache transplant in Turkey, you can ask for additional treatments from your Remedy Istanbul medical consultant. PRP and mesotherapy injections are the most popular ones among them. Moreover, laser treatments and ozone treatments are also considered as helpful in terms of a faster and healthier recovery. Please get in touch with your Remedy Istanbul host or consultant to find the best enhancing treatment option for your needs.
