4. Your stay
On the day of arrival, you don’t have to worry about a thing but relaxing, enjoying the hotel and getting to know Istanbul. Last year’s experiences showed that patients who had the chance to get used to the surroundings beforehand, went through the treatment substantially more relaxed and felt much calmer in the clinic. The hotel offers various amenities to relax in complete silence. Of course, you can also make an excursion outside the hotel if you wish to.
On the second day, we will drive you to the clinic and the real process begins. Here, you will get to know our experts and the first examinations will take place. If necessary, an interpreter is available for you. With the preliminary examination, the density of your hair and your general state of health is examined, as well as a general analysis of the hair. If all preliminary examinations are concluded, a consultation takes place. In this conversation, the specialist will discuss all details of the hair transplant with you, explain the expiry of the intervention and inform you how long the intervention will last, according to his estimate.
The surgical intervention normally lasts between three and seven hours, but occasionally more. At this time, you are put under a local anaesthesia – hence, you can’t feel much, although you are fully conscious and can distract yourself during this time with music or television. After the intervention you are brought back again to your hotel where you can rest.
