Hair Restoration Surgery without Medication?

Content overseen by Doctor Costin Pasnicu who has over 7 years of experience in the medical field and has performed numerous successful surgeries. He graduated from the renowned University of Medicine and Pharmacy “Carol Davila” Bucharest.

Generally, the most used types of treatments for hair loss are hair restoration surgery and medications, such as Minoxidil (more known as Rogaine or Regaine), which can be acquired over the counter and is applied topically and Finasteride (Propecia), which can only be prescribed by a physician and is administered orally.

It is, though, possible to undergo a surgical hair transplant in Istanbul without medication. This, however, presents certain risks. In this article, our hair restoration physicians further develop on this subject.

When is medication prescribed by our hair transplant surgeons in Turkey?

Subject to the patient’s age and the hair loss progress, a Turkey hair transplant physician could decline to perform a hair restoration procedure on him or her, mainly if the hair loss is aggressive and it shows no signs of ceasing.

However, for older patients or those with mild recession signs and/or a family history of presenting minimal hair loss, effectuating a hair transplant operation without administering non-surgical hair loss medication.

Unfortunately, there is not a method to find out if a patient’s hair loss will progress aggressively or not. Determining factors which could indicate this fact could be the family history, the patient’s age, the current hair loss signs and genetics.

The hair loss medication mentioned above could help decrease the necessity for more hair transplants in the future which might be needed to replace the hair lost as the patient grows older.

Additionally, the medication could help regrow very small and dormant hairs, which can mean fewer grafts to be transplanted on the balding zone.

Preventive medication for hair loss can function efficiently in combination with a hair transplant surgery in Turkey because it is difficult to reach the desired hair density with only one of these methods.

In some cases, patients could experience certain side effects as a result of taking hair loss medication. This is why they could decide to undergo a hair restoration surgery without medication as the only viable solution for their hair loss.
