In cases where the hair density decreases and the bald areas increase, the only way to regain the old hair density or to remove baldness from being an aesthetic problem is hair transplant surgery. However, hair transplantation is an important decision. Patients who come to me for hair transplantation from Turkey and abroad; I would say that this is a long-term process and that it is possible to achieve the desired results by collaborating.
In the hair transplant procedure; The behavior of the patients during the post-operative recovery period is as important as the choice of a hair transplant specialist. The final results of a successful and promising surgery are determined by the care taken by the patient. The first things that come to mind are resting enough, protecting the operation area against external factors, washing the procedure properly, paying attention to the sleeping position, not rubbing the scalp, and not neglecting the use of lotions. Our list is a little longer than that. I would like to convey to you one of the issues that are often overlooked after hair transplant surgery. One of the requirements that should not be overlooked in the care process after hair transplantation is the use of vitamins.
I have included the positive effects of vitamins and minerals on hair health in many articles. Lack of certain vitamins and minerals can cause hair loss. Vitamins and minerals, which cannot be supplied in sufficient quantities from food sources, should be used as supplements and this gap should be closed. Elimination of vitamin deficiency is extremely important not only for hair health, but also for general body health. Using vitamins after hair transplant operations; It can help both to get through the healing process quickly and to help the hair grow fast.
To turn to the right vitamin and mineral sources after hair transplantation; It can be beneficial for hair growth and the quality of growing hair. In addition, it can reverse the trend of shedding in existing hair. Each vitamin group has different benefits for body health. We can list the vitamins and minerals you may need during the recovery process after hair transplantation as follows:
All members of the B vitamin family have the ability to accelerate wound healing. On the other hand, vitamin B7 known as biotin; It is famous for its positive effects on hair, nails and skin health. When you apply to a dermatologist with the problem of hair loss, they first request the measurement of vitamins and minerals such as biotin, selenium, zinc. Support from the B vitamin family can be taken to accelerate the healing process after hair transplantation, to support hair growth and to strengthen existing hair.
Zinc is a trace mineral that has beneficial effects in strengthening the immune system and wound healing. It nourishes the hair follicles and contributes to the proper functioning of the sebaceous glands.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants help prevent cell damage from free radicals. Vitamin C, which supports the wound healing process, can also help the scalp heal quickly after hair transplant surgery.
Vitamin A supports sebum secretion. It is very important for healthy hair formation. It contributes to the regular functioning of the processes in the hair growth cycle. Studies show that Vitamin A has positive effects on both skin and hair health.
Although many of us are familiar with the positive effects of vitamin E on the skin, it has been on the agenda recently with its benefits for hair. Vitamin E, which has antioxidant properties, promotes hair growth by increasing blood flow. We want to stop taking vitamin E before hair transplant surgery. However, it is an important vitamin for hair growth in the long term after surgery.
Deficiency or insufficient vitamin D can cause hair loss and slow hair growth. Even 15 minutes of sunlight from your arms a day can be extremely beneficial.
The use of vitamins and minerals, which cannot be taken in sufficient amounts with food sources, in the form of drugs or serum is common. However, it is not right to load up on vitamin and mineral supplements without knowing what the deficiencies are in your body and at what level. Vitamins and minerals that may be required after hair transplantation will be recommended by your doctor or hair transplant specialist according to your needs.
