Many patients want to come to Turkey for having more than one cosmetic procedure. They usually end up wondering if they can have hair surgery with other plastic surgeries in that one trip. It’s more cost-effective and time-saving if you can have them all on the same trip.
But is it something that your body can handle? That’s what many people end up wondering. Will having hair surgery and plastic surgery together increase the downtime? Of course, it’s a troubling aspect, especially if you’ve taken time off work to get the surgeries.
Depending on the medical history of the patient, their age, the complexity of the surgery, the answer to this question can vary. It is also true that the natures of hair surgery and plastic surgeries are quite different. Commonly patients come to Turkey to have a hair transplant. It is a popular procedure among both men and women.
However, once they’re in Turkey, they can end up wanting to get other procedures with it, but is it possible to make such last-minute changes to the treatment plan? In this guide, we hope you can find the answers to your questions.
Can I Get Hair Transplant Surgery with Other Plastic Surgeries?
People who’re suffering from hair loss usually want to get hair transplant surgery. However, if they’re struggling with other problems, it can lower their self-esteem and confidence even after they’ve gotten a hair transplant.
That one flaw could bother them so much that it overshadows the result of the hair transplant surgery. They’re unable to completely enjoy it, hence the decision to get another procedure. Read on to find out whether or not these combo surgeries are possible and, if so, which ones can you get?
Surgeries Men Can Combine with Hair Transplant
Hair transplant surgery isn’t the only surgery that can help enhance your appearance. Sometimes a flabby stomach can make you feel bad about yourself.
No matter how hard you try to get rid of the fat, you cannot. If an important event in your life is coming up for which you need to transform your look, you can seek surgical intervention to get rid of excess fat around your stomach. This means that you can have hair transplant surgery with liposuction.
The good news is that you can have more than one plastic surgery with a hair transplant. Sometimes, due to high levels of oestrogen in the body, males can have large breast tissue. This is gynecomastia. In this case, breast reduction surgery can help restore the confidence of the patient in his body.
You do not have to restrict yourself to one plastic surgery with a hair transplant. You can have a hair transplant with rhinoplasty, liposuction and breast reduction surgery. These are the ones that people usually get together. If you want to get any other treatment, you can always ask your Patient Consultant.
Surgeries Women Can Combine with Hair Transplant
Many women also come to Turkey for having female hair transplant surgery. Complete baldness is rare among them, but they can lose their hair permanently in certain regions of the scalp like hairline, temples, and crown/vertex. This is also androgenetic alopecia. Hair transplant provides a permanent solution to their hair loss. However, other than getting hair surgery, a woman can also choose to get liposuction if she desires.
Despite exercising and eating right, you might find it difficult to lose weight. And sometimes, to speed things up, surgery can help. Other than that, women can also have breast implants while they’re in Turkey for hair surgery. They can also get them all together i.e., liposuction, hair transplant, and breast implants. In addition, many patients also get rhinoplasty with these surgeries.
When you complete the recovery process for these surgeries, you will have transformed yourself and started a new life. If you want to get any other treatment than this, such as cosmetic dentistry, you can reach out to your Patient Consultant. We’ll make sure to inform you if we can adjust it to your treatment package. Also, you can avail yourself of discounts by getting multiple surgeries together.
What Are the Benefits of Combining Hair Surgery and Plastic Surgeries?
Following are the benefits you can get from combining your hair surgery with other plastic surgeries:
You’ll Save Time
Before getting any surgery, our patients ask us how much time will the recovery take. Of course, it’s quite difficult to take some time out and get surgery. The hard part isn’t over then. You have to wait a year, sometimes even more to see the final results of the surgery. And if you’re thinking of getting more than one surgery but decide to get them all separately, it is going to take years before you see the final results of your complete transformation.
However, by getting surgeries together, you’ll take years off your face and body in just one visit to Turkey. You’ll only travel once and take time off work only one time. You might stay in Turkey for more than a week after the surgery because of the follow-up appointments. At first, you might need more time to get back to work than you would with just one surgery. But once you get back home and start feeling better, there’s no going back from there.
After the procedures, your body will enter the recovery cycle, and all the surgical areas will start healing simultaneously. You’ll travel once, stay a little longer, might take a little longer to recover, but when the ordeal is over, you’ll find a drastic change in the way you look.
You’ll Save Money
Other than getting a discount on multiple surgeries, you’ll also save money through other means. Whenever you revisit Turkey for getting your next surgery, you’ll have to spend money on a hotel, transfers, food, etc again.
However, when you get all the surgeries on the same visit, you’ll spend money on hotel, transfers, and food just once. You’ll also have to consider the costs of the flight tickets that you’ll have to buy each time. If arranged separately, these trips can become quite expensive, which is why you should consider getting the surgeries together.
You’ll Recover from All Surgeries Simultaneously
That’s one of the biggest advantages of getting all the surgeries together. And since you’ll recover from them altogether, you’ll see the results altogether. It will produce a wholesome and transformative effect.
Fortunately, the recovery process for both hair transplant and plastic surgery is similar. We will provide you with separate aftercare instructions for each. You might have some difficulty at first, but it will get better with time.
Both surgeries need around a year to year and a half to show the final results to the patient. After having a hair transplant, your hair will start to grow after the 3rd month. After plastic surgery, the swelling on the surgical site will take around a year to completely go away. Of course, how soon you recover is also determined by your health, age, diet, lifestyle, etc.
You’ll Have To Mentally Prepare Yourself Once
Having surgery can take its toll on a person. It can stress you out even before it takes place. The fear of all the things that could go wrong is hard enough to deal with. But to deal with it over and over again is even worse. Each time you get surgery, you’ll feel dread.
Preparing yourself mentally for surgery isn’t easy. However, sometimes, we have to do it for the sake of our happiness. If you’ve made up your mind once about getting surgery, it is easier to get all the procedures that you want to be done together.
But before that, you should be absolutely sure that you would like to undergo the procedure and are ready to go through the whole process. These procedures are going to change the way you look, so you should carefully consider your decision before making this journey. It’s not going to be easy, but it’s going to be worth it. Having to make the same trip twice or thrice will stress you out every time. Sometimes, it doesn’t get easier the second time around, especially with surgeries.
If you’ve decided to combine hair surgery with another cosmetic surgery, you can always seek advice from your Patient Consultant. They can help guide you with your decision if you’re unsure. Moreover, depending on your goals and desires, they can let you know if you’re taking a step in the right direction. Since the Patient Consultant is in charge of your case, they can tell you all you need to know about the surgeries.
Will the Hair Surgery & Plastic Surgery Take Place the Same Day?
If you’re getting hair surgery with another plastic surgery, chances are your hair surgery will take place a couple of days before the plastic surgery. This will give the hair grafts more time to heal.
After you’ve had the cosmetic surgery, you’ll still have to continue with the aftercare instructions of the transplant. Since it can get a bit difficult, it’s better if you have someone accompany you when you’re getting combination surgeries.
Although there are many advantages of combining hair surgery and plastic surgery, you should make sure to keep the aftercare process in mind. Combining two surgeries at once needs special attention during recovery. You need to take care of yourself and follow the different instructions to recover normally and successfully.
