Our Clinic provides all the necessary pre-operation information so that to be fully informed about the details of the procedure:
How many grafts can be placed daily?
The number of the grafts that can be placed depends from each case. We estimate a number of 1200-2000 grafts per day and that is the reason we have to make a good planning of the visit in Greece.
Do I have to shave all my hair?
If you are having up to 1200 grafts, it is possible to have the procedure without shaving the all the hair in the sites and back.
In this case you have to let your hair grow more than 5 cm. We will then shave small parts of the donor site where donor hairs will be removed and then the existing longer hair will cover the area that has been shaved.
If you are planning to have a procedure over 1200 grafts, then the donor area must be shaved.
Can I fly home the same day?
We recommend staying and relaxing on the evening of your procedure and flying home the following day.

Will there be pain on the evening of the procedure?
Maybe there will be some disturbances during the first day after the operation.
Can I bring a partner to travel with me?
Yes, of course.
