Brief Explanations of Above

After all these strict and boring instructions, it can be hard to believe that a hair transplant operation at Sule Hair Transplant Clinic is easy and fun. Typically, patients are picked up from our contracted 5-star luxury hotel at 7:15 in the morning by our VIP vehicles and brought to the hospital. The procedure continues with a blood test and then a consultation with the doctor. During the surgery, patients wear regular clothes (we suggest a buttoned-shirt as it is comfortable to wear and take off), take a break to stretch or go to the toilet. We serve lunch at the hospital during a break. After the operation, patients are kept for observation and then taken back to the hotel by our vehicles.

Why should you stay away from alcohol and aspirin before Hair Transplantation?

The reason we do not allow patients to take aspirin products or alcohol is that they thin the blood.

Can I do exercises before hair transplant operation?

Running and heavy exercise just before the hair transplant operation can similarly thin the blood differently and is therefore prohibited.

Am I allowed to eat before the hair transplant operation?

Before most procedures, patients are told not to eat. However, Hair Transplantation is a small procedure in which the patient stays awake at all times. So there is no problem and even requires patients to eat something. This is for a few reasons. Number one: who wants to get hungry? The second is that your body burns calories when you are excited or a little stressed, which means your blood sugar will go down, which makes you feel worse.
For this reason, it’s always best to get you high-carb / sugary foods before your procedure. Nothing wrong with doughnuts or pancakes. Just don’t overeat and avoid fat decadent breakfasts.

What should I wear during the hair transplant operation?

We use large amounts of sterile water and disinfectant during the process. If they get on your clothes, it will stain them. So it’s not a good idea to come to our office on the day of the operation in a nice suit or a favourite shirt, grab an old shirt and worn jeans that you find comfortable and go downstairs.
