Before and after
Discover the evolution of our patients after their hair transplant
Images of hair transplant before and after in Sanantur
One of the main doubts of patients when performing a hair transplant is knowing what before and after looks like on others to see the effectiveness of the treatment. See the results of others, see if it’s natural, see if the hairless area is well covered … are the main doubts of our patients, and what better than a few real cases to demonstrate the effectiveness of treatment that we offer with Sanantur:
Evolution of the hair transplant
The idea is very widespread that the final results after undergoing a hair implant are seen after about a year. In a way, it’s true, but we have to keep in mind that this is not an exact science, so it will vary with each patient. We describe here the different steps that can occur after the intervention, being very general in time and duration, depending on the case.
First of all, you have to have patience, and not be afraid of the changes and evolutions that can occur, but you can not claim to have a mane in two days either; we must let nature take its course.
Hair transplant: first week
The first days (0-7): Recently done, small clots of blood appear in the implanted area but disappear in a week with washes. It is quite normal to have the head a little swollen because of the serum and anesthesia, as well as due to the elastic band placed above the eyes to prevent anesthesia from descending to the face. Anti-inflammatories are administered the first week to help this effect.
In the donor area, you may notice some itching and irritation. You can apply saline to relieve it. You can take paracetamol, ibuprofen or nolotil if the discomfort is too important. Consult a doctor, but most importantly DO NOT SCRATCH.
It is very normal to feel a feeling of stiffness, a lack of sensitivity of the donor area; it is a symptom that will disappear with time. There may also be some flaking on the reception area.
Small granites may also appear in the donor area during the first few months; They are “little hair” trying to get out and it is difficult for them.
It is quite normal for both the implanted area and the donor area to be reddened for about 15 days and usually coincide until the crusts fall; little by little, they will return to their natural color. In the donor area, you can apply an ointment or aloe vera gel (as pure as possible). If symptoms of infection (folliculitis) appear in the donor’s area, consult the doctor and apply antibiotics. But this is not common.
The crusts usually fall from the 7th day, do not try to make them fall, they must fall alone. It will be normal to see hair loss, but not follicles. There is no need to worry, it’s normal.
Evolution of the hair implant in the first month
Between the third week and two months, in most cases, there is usually a loss of transplanted hair. It is the telogen or rest phase which involves a fall of the implanted hair because the follicles are detached from the hair. It is not necessary to be alarmed, it is quite normal and, they will start to grow back after a few days or weeks; as soon as they start to grow again (anagen phase), they will not fall again.
Hair transplantation: evolution after 3 months
After about 3 months, the hair begins to grow (anagen phase) steadily; At first they are thin and weak. they will become thicker with time.
Evolution at 6 months
Between the 5th and 6th months, new regrowth is usually observed, with thicker and longer hair (5-7 cm) that gives a greater sensation of density.
From the 8th-10th month, it is usually possible to see how the final results will be 90%. The hair is longer and thicker.
Hair transplant one year after surgery
From the 12th month, the results tend to be definitive, with a completely natural finish, where you will not be able to distinguish which hair has been implanted from the rest of your hair. This does not mean that there are some people who will see it from 15-18 months.
Recovering your own hair with a completely natural finish is our goal. Our medical and technical team extracts the follicles from the back and from the sides of your head (depending on the case), and then implant them in the zone (s) that require it.
