Hair Loss After Temporal Lift (Temple Lift) or Endoscopic Brow Lift: Treatment and Hair Transplantation Process

Temporal lift, also known as endoscopic brow lift, has become a widely preferred procedure today. In this procedure, the stitches are hidden in the scalp, and the temple area is tightened. However, a small proportion of patients may experience hair loss around the stitches in the scalp post-operation. This is thought to be due to the hair follicles in the incision area being subjected to chemical and physical trauma. Hair follicles that are usually traumatized can grow back within 6-12 months. However, if they do not grow back within this period, it is considered permanent baldness. What course of action should be taken in this situation?

Firstly, you should wait for 6-12 months and follow the recommendations given by the physician who performed the procedure. If baldness is still present in the operated area after this period, hair transplantation may be considered.

Hair Transplantation Process for Hair Loss After Temporal Lift:

The operated area must be fully healed without any problems for at least 12 months. If there are hypertrophic (protruding) or atrophic (sunken) scars in the area, you should get treatments for these from your surgeon or dermatologist to ensure the skin is completely healthy.

Hair transplantation is also a surgical procedure, and achieving the desired results can be more challenging if applied to unhealthy skin. Hair transplantation is performed under local anesthesia, and a portion of your hair from the nape area needs to be trimmed. However, this trimming is planned in such a way that the short-haired area where the roots are taken is concealed by the upper hair.

Planning Hair Transplantation for Hair Loss After Temporal Lift:

As shown in the image, the hair in the temple areas grows at almost parallel angles of 15 degrees to the skin. Therefore, during hair transplantation, to achieve a natural appearance, the roots must be placed according to these natural angles. Otherwise, the results can be extremely disturbing to the individual. Another issue is that scar tissue formed under the skin after previous trauma in this area can cause some hardening and disruption of nutrition. This must be considered, and minimal damage should be inflicted on the area during the procedure.

“Each person’s temporal area has different hair growth directions. Therefore, before the procedure, hair growth directions should be determined in detail, and the procedure should be carried out accordingly.”

Recovery Process After Hair Transplantation Following Temporal Lift:

Compared to temporal lift, hair transplantation is a more superficial procedure as it does not involve cutting the skin layers and underlying structures. You do not need to stay in the hospital after the procedure; you can return home. It is recommended not to wash the hair for the first 3 days post-procedure, with the first wash being performed in the hospital. Subsequently, medical washes taught are repeated at home, and by the 10th day, the wounds and crusts in the area disappear completely. Transplanted hair undergoes shock loss from the 3rd week, and from the 6th month, it starts to grow. Hair reaches the desired level between 12-15 months and does not fall out for a lifetime.
