Can you have a hair transplant during COVID-19? Hermest Hair Transplant explains how it works

We have explored the COVID-19 precautions taken by Turkey’s top hair transplant clinic, Hermest Hair Transplant, to discover how people are dealing with the pandemic to continue their treatments. The clinic has been awarded with the best hair transplant awards in Europe by the most important institutions in Germany.

COVID-19 has introduced new lifestyle standards around the world. We need to live in different and new ways than we have lived before 2020 in this period, defined as the new normal. We are learning to live with COVID-19 in a world where the limitations and various precautions for the pandemic still continue but we still cannot achieve the desired control that we seek. 

How has the hair transplant process worked during the COVID-19 period?

Globally renowned health institutions in the hair transplant field have been offering top-level services during the COVID-19 pandemic. Guests from foreign countries have been transferred to their appointments with private vehicles. At this stage, the COVID-19 antibody test is offered as a free service to guests. Then, the waiting room and operating rooms for blood tests and hair analysis are prepared as large rooms remain fully compliant with COVID-19 precautions. Technical staff with monthly PCR and periodic COVID-19 antibody tests are always by the side of their guests. 

Following the hair analysis, customised hair design is applied and the operation starts. Hair transplant operations can take 6 to 8 hours depending on the patient, with a local anaesthesia administered. To ensure sleeping comfort after the operation, special pillows and various medications are provided to guests for free and they are then transferred to an accommodation centre to get rest. When the patients go to the hospital on the next day to assess the operation results, these processes are followed under COVID-19 precautions. The guests then rest for 1 more day and they visit the hospital on the following day for the final controls. During this final examination, the first hair wash is applied and detailed information regarding hair care and medications will be used until the recovery. The guests are then transferred to the accommodation facilities with VIP vehicles and their transfer to the airport from the hotel is completed, depending on the departure flight time.

Just like other hair transplant centres, Hermest Hair Transplant underwent an innovative restructuring during the COVID-19 pandemic period to maintain its high-quality service presentation. Hermest hair transplant has adopted these precautions as standard, which has shown how they have navigated the restrictions while maintaining patient safety.
