Calm & Cool Hair Transplant : Sedated Hair Procedure 

Sedated hair transplant is a method used to ensure that the patient is more relaxed and comfortable during the hair transplantation procedure. Sedation is a type of medication used to calm the patient and reduce anxiety and stress.

At Turkey Hair Center, Sedated Hair Implant is managed by an anesthesiologist. Sedation can range from a state of mild relaxation to a state of deep sleep, depending on the patient’s preferences and needs.

State of Consciousness During sedation 

During the sedated hair transplantation procedure, the patient’s consciousness is often blurred and most of the time he or she is asleep or very sleepy during the procedure. 

  • In light sedation, the patient may be conscious but more calm, drowsy, or relaxed. In this case, the patient may be able to notice and communicate what is happening around him, but may feel less anxiety or pain.
  • In moderate sedation, the patient is in a deeper state of sleep and often has reduced awareness of the outside world. However, with mild stimulation the patient may respond or follow instructions.
  • In the case of deep sedation, the patient is generally asleep and does not react to environmental stimuli. In this case, the patient is usually referred by the anesthesiologist or surgeon.

The state of consciousness during sedation is related to the patient’s health status, the type of procedure, and the use of sedative medications.  

Is Pain Felt when Sedation is Injected? 

When sedation is injected, minimal discomfort or pain is usually felt. However, this varies from person to person and depending on the type of sedative drug used.

Sedative injections are given with thin needles, and these needles do not cause much pain other than mild discomfort. Additionally, healthcare professionals use proper techniques to ensure the injection is given comfortably.

How is Sedated Hair Transplant applied? 

Applying sedation involves certain steps before and during the sedated hair transplant procedure. Here is a step-by-step guide explaining the process of administering sedation:

Consultation and Patient Information: 

  • During the pre-hair transplant evaluation, the patient’s general health condition, current medications, allergies and medical history are examined.
  • The patient is informed in detail about the purpose, process and possible side effects of sedation.
  • The patient can express any concerns or questions regarding sedation to the medical team.

Application of Sedation

  • Sedation is usually applied before the hair transplantation procedure.
  • Sedative drugs are usually administered intravenously or orally.
  • The type and dosage of sedative medications are determined by the patient’s needs, health status, and purpose of sedation.
  • The purpose of sedation is to help the patient relax, reduce anxiety and stress, and provide a more comfortable experience during the procedure.
  • Sedation can range from a state of mild relaxation to a state of deep sleep and can be adjusted according to the patient’s preferences.
  • During sedation, the patient is usually kept under supervision and constantly monitored by medical staff.

Monitoring and Adjusting Sedation: 

  • During sedation, the patient’s vital signs (pulse, blood pressure, respiratory rate) are checked at regular intervals.
  • The depth and effects of sedation are continuously monitored and adjustments can be made as necessary.
  • The patient is ensured to feel comfortable and safe throughout the sedation process.
  • Sedation is carefully managed to minimize unwanted side effects during and after the procedure.

Applying sedation is an important step during the hair transplant procedure to ensure that the patient is relaxed and experiences less stress during the procedure. Therefore, proper administration and monitoring of sedation is vital for a successful hair transplant experience.

Sedated Hair Transplant

How long does Sedation Hair Transplantation take? 

Processing time varies from a few hours to a few days, as the process depends on many factors. The procedure time depends on the amount of hair follicles required for hair transplantation, the hair transplantation technique, the size of the donor area and recipient area, the experience of the team performing the procedure, and the characteristics of the patient.

Usually, a standard Sedated Fue Hair Transplant procedure takes a few hours. Complex cases take longer and are performed in several sessions over several days.

Factors Effects
Number of Hair Follicles More hair follicles can extend the procedure duration.
Hair Transplant Technique Different techniques like FUE or FUT can affect the procedure duration.
Size of Donor and Recipient Areas The size of areas can influence the duration of the procedure.
Surgical Team An experienced team can perform the procedure more efficiently.
Patient’s Characteristics Factors like hair texture, hair loss condition, and skin type can affect the procedure duration.

Generally, Sedated Hair Implant can take several hours, but this time may vary depending on the above factors. Large hair transplant procedures or complex cases may take several days and be performed in multiple sessions.

What is the recovery period after Sedated Hair Transplant? 

Here is a step-by-step guide explaining the recovery process after sedated hair transplant, from the first day to one year:

  • First Day and First Week:
  • After hair transplantation, there is usually crusting, redness and slight swelling in the recipient and donor areas.
  • In the first days, a bandage or cap is usually used to protect the head and transplanted areas.
  • In the first days, care should be taken to keep your head high when sleeping.
  • Painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs recommended by the doctor are used.


  • First Week and First Month:
  • The crusts gradually begin to fall off, but this process takes several weeks.
  • Washing instructions should be followed carefully. Gentle washing and drying is generally recommended.
  • Heavy exercises and heavy physical activities should be avoided.
  • You should stay away from the sun, pool and sea water.
  • The hair transplanted area should be carefully protected during the healing process.


  • First Three Months:
  • New hair is expected to grow in the transplanted areas, but hair may fall out during this period. This is a normal process and it may take several months for the hair to regrow.
  • Swelling and redness in the recipient and donor areas usually decrease and healing begins to become evident.
  • Sensitivity continues in the hair transplanted areas.


  • First Six Months:
  • It is expected that the hair will start to grow and become visible in the transplanted areas.
  • As the hair grows, the results become more noticeable.
  • The healing process usually continues and it may take time for the hair to regain a natural appearance.


  • One Year Later:
  • The healing process is usually completed after a year and the results become clearly visible.
  • Hair can grow fully and aesthetic results occur after hair transplantation.

The healing process and results vary from person to person. The recovery process after hair transplantation is a process that requires patience and regular care.

Carefully following your doctor’s instructions and following certain care procedures are important for a successful recovery process.

When are the results of Sedated Hair Transplantation seen? 

The results of sedated hair transplant start even on the first day. The process varies from several months to a year. Here is a table showing how the results of sedated hair transplant  may develop in general: 

Time Frame Results
First 1-3 Months – Crusts shed and hair follicles heal. Slow emergence of new hair begins, although hair may shed during this period.
3-6 Months – Hair follicles become more visible, and hair begins to grow.  Continued emergence of new hair, and hair gains more density.
6-9 Months – Hair grows longer, and density in transplanted areas increases. Hair gains a more natural appearance, and results become more pronounced.
9-12 Months – Healing process typically completes, and results become more final. Density increases in transplanted areas, and hair fully grows out.
1 Year and Beyond – Results become final, and aesthetic outcomes of hair transplantation become clearer. Hair fully grows out and achieves a natural appearance.

This table provides a general overview of how the results of Hair Restoration with Sedation can develop over time, but individual experiences may vary, and there may be some variations in this process. 

Does the use of vitamins affect the results of sedated hair transplant? 

In the post-hair transplant period, some vitamins are important for the healthy recovery of the body and strengthening of the hair. However, a healthy diet and appropriate vitamin supplements improve the overall health condition and therefore positively affect the result of hair transplantation.

What are the side effects of Sedated Hair Transplantation? 

There is no risk of infection after sedated hair transplant. Conditions such as pain and edema occur. These risks are minimized with the hygienic measures taken in your clinic and appropriate post-procedure care.
