The expectation for a hair transplant should be realistic. The patient expectation and the appearance to be obtained are important. Therefore, it is a condition to provide parallelism for the person who will have hair transplantation. Pictures of patients who have undergone a transplantation are a good reference for what may be expected. Topics such as the numbers of grafts should be clearly specified and the factors relating to the person (hair color, hair fiber thickness, amount of the hairless area and etc.) should be discussed in detail.
This depends one two main aspects. The donor area where the grafts are extracted and the need of a patient. Patients with a strong donor area offer opportunity to extract 3.500 – 5.000 grafts during once treatment. A patients individual need will determine ultimately the amount of grafts that are actually extracted and planted.
It is possible to have a haircut after one month. The transplanted hairs should be cut with a scissor. Other areas may be cut with a machine is wished.
