What you need to know about hair transplantation Tunisia

The quantity of hair implants necessary during a session depends on several parameters.

Hair transplantation is almost painless. A few points of local anesthesia using fine needles allow the entire scalp to be anesthetized instantly.

Once this anesthesia has been obtained, the entire procedure is completely painless.

When the anesthesia wears off, very little pain is felt. Simple analgesics such as paracetamol can completely control any pain sometimes present in the sampling area.

Patients sometimes express discomfort the first 2 – 3 days in the sampling area when placing their head on the cushion but without real pain.

As a safety and precautionary measure, we recommend that the patient remain under surveillance for 1 to 2 hours before returning home. The return must be accompanied or by means of a taxi which will be ordered on site.

Yes, generally we just recommend taking one week of availability out of your schedule. A hair transplant does not prevent you from going on vacation. However, during the first 15 days you should avoid putting your head under water (sea and swimming pool).

The grafted area will be protected from the sun for the first 3 months (wearing a cap).

No, the technique used does not require any special shaving.

No. Keeping the hair at a certain length makes it possible to guide the procedure during implantation by visualizing the orientation and obliquity of the hair according to each area.

Generally a period of 9 months to 1 year is necessary before having another hair transplant session. This waiting period makes it possible to evaluate the result of the first session and to regain good flexibility of the scalp to undertake a new harvest of grafts.

For mega-sessions 4000 to 5000 grafts (follicular units) it is possible to carry out the session over 2 days.

Yes, the surgeon can absolutely increase the density of an already implanted area by placing micrografts (follicular units) between the first implants.

The scar is imperceptible both visually and to the touch. It results in a thin, white line embedded in the hair surrounding it. It is generally difficult to find. However, a very close shave of the scalp makes it inevitably visible. This is why the use of the strip hair transplant technique requires a minimum length of hair (5 mm).

For people who tend to have very short or shaved hair, we recommend the scarless FUE hair transplant technique.

Yes, it is entirely possible to implant follicular units directly into the strip scar using the FUE grafting technique.

The first shampoo is done two days after the hair transplant procedure. We use an antiseptic shampoo.

The first shampoo consists of applying the solution to the grafted area without rubbing. Leave to act for 5 minutes then rinse with lukewarm water using the low pressure shower head.

Drying the grafted area is done by gently dabbing with a clean towel.

This procedure will be repeated every day until the 5th day. From the 6th day it will be possible to gently rub the grafted area.

The usual shampoo will be resumed as soon as all the healing scabs have fallen off, between the 7th and 15th days.

This is completely normal. This insensitivity is linked to the micro-sections of the nerve branches distributed throughout the scalp. It takes one to 2 months before normal sensitivity is regained (nerve fiber regrowth time).

This insensitivity is also seen above the sampling scar in the occipital region. It will also take several weeks or even months to disappear.

The complications are exceptional. The most often cited are micro-infection at the level of a micrograft and enlargement of the harvest scar.The main complication that people keep in mind is the unsightly «leek field» or «doll hair» look. This aspect should no longer be seen. Indeed, current hair transplant techniques using the follicular unit grafting process ensure a guaranteed aesthetic and natural result.

Certain sports (jogging, cycling) can be resumed after 15 days. On the other hand, more physical sports (tennis, horse riding, combat sports) will be resumed after 6 weeks. Indeed, forced head flexions increase the tension on the harvesting scar and therefore risk widening the scar.
