It is possible to catch any transmitted virus or disease if you have previously undergone hemodialysis, have had unprotected sex with more than one partner, or have been in contact with infected blood/needles/non-sterile pieces of equipment. Or, you have been tattooed with non-sterile equipment.

How does hair transplant work if you have HPC?

As it is well known that Hepatitis C is infectious. The health of everyone around the patient is very important. Therefore, first, some blood sample is taken from all of the patients to see the patient’s general situation. Sometimes, it may happen that the patient had the disease previously in the past but recovered.

In this case, hepatitis C antigens against this virus might exist in the patient’s blood. Therefore, this doesn’t go against the guidelines of the operation, and hair transplantation will be performed.

The patient with Hep C is kept in a designated area which is kept in extreme sterile conditions for the health of everyone that is going to be around him/her.
