  • Doctor’s inexperience
    The correct number of grafts is one of the most important stages of hair transplantation and plays a very important role in the natural appearance of the candidates’ hair after the hair transplant operation.
  • Not being the right candidate for hair transplantation
    During the medical examination, the dermatologist will perform various tests to analyze your suitability for hair transplantation; These are the adequacy of the donor hair, the type of hair loss expected in the future, the classification of hair loss and the diagnosis of the patient’s hair loss. These analyzes before hair transplantation determine whether the person is the right candidate to perform the procedure.
  • Inadequate postoperative care
    After the hair transplant procedure, doctors provide the patient with aftercare instructions as well as information about the postoperative care that should be done in the following days and weeks. It can be observed that some patients experience intense crusting around their hair. Scratching this area or improper hair washing can adversely affect graft survival and the final result.
