Notice: Please bear in mind that the content on our page is for informational purposes only, it is not suitable for you to consider in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, and you should definitely consult your doctor for any diagnosis and treatment.

What to Expect?

Here it is crucial to bear in mind that not all patients with HIV have strong immune systems. Furthermore, in hair transplantation having a stable strong immune system is important. In any case, there will be blood tests before the operation, depending on the results of the tests, then it will be decided whether the operation will take place or not.

Hair Treatment Methods for HIV-positive Patients

Once it is decided, then HIV-positive patients will be in the hands of the experienced doctors for careful planning and treatment in a designated area/clinic that is spared for only HIV-patients. Before everything, the doctor will investigate the reasons for the hair loss; therefore several tests will be carried out.

It is really important and has to be paid utmost attention that the delicate operation has to be performed under a highly sterile environment and controlled conditions so that the HIV wouldn’t be transmitted to anyone during the entire procedure.

Before and after the operation it has to be made sure that the tools and clinic are in the utmost sterile conditions. The whole staff must be in protective masks and gloves at all times. This kind of protection is in fact valid and should be the same for each and every patient, whether they have the virus or they don’t.

The methods in treating the hair loss in HIV patients aren’t so different. However, it has to be emphasized that each and every step in treating the HIV patients needs to be taken carefully during the entire procedure, from start to finish.

The permanent hair transplant methods applied to HIV-positive patients don’t differ from other types of the methods carried out on other patients

There are mainly Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and one of the newest ones named Direct Hair Transplantation (DHI) techniques. Both are very popular and painless and are based on collecting hair follicles from healthy and strong donor sites, and then they are transferred to the target area where there is hair loss.

In the FUE method, hair grafts are collected from a donor area and transferred to the target area under local anesthesia. The donor area is generally chosen at the back of the head or the sides of the ears.

However, if those donor sites and areas don’t have enough hair follicles, then your specialist doctor will decide to collect follicles from other parts of the body.

No Regrets Booking Advice

Direct Hair Transplantation (DHI) technique, on the hair hand, uses a special tool, pen, to collect the hair follicles, however, in DHI no channel or incision is required to be opened on the scalp, unlike FUE.

Important Points to Consider in HIV-positive Hair Transplantation?

HIV-positive patients have to be extremely conscious of how to protect themselves and others, they need to be careful in every step they take in their lives; when they go to a dentist, or when they go under a hair transplant operation.

Since the patient’s immune system is weak, a suitable preparation period may be needed for any surgical operation. The patient’s immune system should be checked. In case of risk, the operation should be postponed.

HIV is transmitted through blood. Surgical operations such as hair transplantation should be performed under extreme high hygiene conditions by taking optimum precautions. Before/During/After the operation, the HIV-positive patient should be maximally protected against possible inflammatory conditions.

If  you are an HIV-positive patient, please read these instructions:

  • Pay close attention to your hygiene before and after the operation.
  • Avoid things that will lower your immune system before the operation.
  • If you feel any discomfort before the operation, be sure to share it with your doctor.
  • Before the operation, you can isolate yourself against the possibility of catching any other viral diseases.
  • It can be a precaution instead of isolating yourself during the wound healing period after the operation.
  • Avoid anything that harms the immune system, such as alcohol and cigarettes.
  • Take care to maintain your sleep pattern.
  • Before and after the operation, request information about the hygiene of the operating room materials.
