DHI Hair Transplant
Sleep hair transplantation is a hair transplantation method that provides significant comfort and is preferred for people who have various fears such as fear of needles and inability to withstand the sight of blood.

Although hair transplantation is usually performed under local anesthesia, it is also possible under general anesthesia when necessary.
What is Sedated Hair Transplantation?
Lack of hair growth or hair loss for various reasons is one of the leading factors that cause individuals to be psychologically negatively affected. Regardless of whether it is a man or a woman, the face and hair are among the most important areas that attract attention in a person’s appearance. For this reason, people who are not satisfied with their facial and hair appearance may face loss of self-confidence as well as aesthetic discontent. Therefore, resorting to methods to resolve the relevant problems can help restore self-confidence.
Although hair transplantation is a method that has been practiced for years and provides effective results, many people cannot have hair transplantation due to fear and pain. Today, thanks to the developing technology, painless and painless hair transplantation is possible. Sedated hair transplantation provides relief from fear, pain and pain.
Sedated hair transplantation, also known as anesthetized hair transplantation or sleep hair transplantation, is applied with special anesthesia drugs administered through the arm like normal anesthesia. In this way, the patient will be worry-free and painless during the hair transplantation, and the hair transplantation procedure will be performed comfortably. During sedated hair transplantation , the patient is given a combination of analgesic and sedative medication intravenously. In this way, the hair transplant procedure can be completed much more comfortably and painlessly than the procedure performed under local anesthesia.
How is Sedation Hair Transplantation Performed?
In sedated hair transplantation , the dose of analgesic active substance to be injected intravenously is determined on a patient-specific basis in accordance with the physical condition of the person. Although the intravenous route is usually preferred, sedative drugs can also be administered through the mouth or nose. Even if the person is conscious after the application, it is not possible to feel pain.
Within the scope of sedated hair transplantation, sedative drugs are given to the patient through the catheter after the vascular access is opened with a catheter. The drug starts to work within 1-2 minutes and the patient’s vascular access remains open during the operation. Sedative drugs carry the risk of disrupting airway reflexes depending on the degree of administration. Therefore, the patient should be hungry before the application. After the patient is sedated, the hair transplant procedure is applied depending on the technique with which the hair transplant will be performed.
What are the Advantages of Sedated Hair Transplantation?
If sedated hair transplantation is applied to people who are afraid of all kinds of surgical interventions and surgical operations, who experience panic and anxiety, it is possible to ensure the comfort of the patients while the operation is completed.

Local anesthesia is usually preferred in hair transplantation. Local anesthesia applied to two different areas is applied to the donor area and the grafts are collected. Local anesthesia can also be applied to the transplantation area before the root canal. Although hair transplantation is seen as a simple procedure, it is a surgical procedure that takes long hours, depending on the individual. In hair transplantation, every stage of which must be carried out meticulously, it should be determined very well how much anesthesia will be applied to ensure the comfort of the patient.
Under local anesthesia, the area to be intervened is numbed by injecting anesthetic drugs with very fine-tipped needles. Local anesthesia, which is preferred as the anesthesia method in hair transplantation, is a method that can be combined with sedation in some cases. Short-term sedation before local anesthesia may be considered if the patient has a fear of needles, has intense anxiety and fear about the operation, has an anxiety disorder or has a very low pain threshold.
What to Do After Sedated Hair Transplant
After sedated hair transplantation, it is very important to take care to protect the transplantation area and to follow the doctor’s recommendations completely. You should not lie on your back for the first week after sedated hair transplantation . After the first wash after sedated hair transplantation, the hair should be washed for two weeks using only the shampoo and lotions prescribed by the doctor. When washing the hair after sedated hair transplantation, washing with very hot or very cold water should not be preferred. After washing, towel drying should be avoided, and when drying with a hair dryer, care should be taken to dry at a low level and warm.
Factors that Make Hair Transplantation Comfortable

The cylindrical needles are made of chromium, steel and nickel-rich quality ingredients that improve the quality of the hair transplant procedure. Renewal of the cylindrical needles that separate the hair from the skin without allowing them to become blunt is among the factors that increase the quality of hair transplantation.
