What is Epilepsy Disease?
Epilepsy disease; It is a chronic disease that affects almost 66 million people around the world, which is called epilepsy in the colloquial language. Epilepsy patients are healthy in their daily lives. The disease manifests itself as seizures at certain intervals. There is not yet a treatment method to definitively end epilepsy. However, it can be kept under control with medication. It is experienced as short-term seizures that occur suddenly. The cause of these seizures is the sudden discharge of neurons in the brain. These discharges occur outside the patient’s control.
Causes of Epilepsy;
The causes that trigger epilepsy vary. Sometimes the cause of epilepsy in each patient cannot be determined exactly. Mostly known causes are;
- Vascular disorders
- The story in childhood

In addition to these substances, dementia, brain tumours and inflammations can also be shown among the causes of epilepsy.
Symptoms of Epilepsy;
- Fear and anxiety states
- Visual and auditory unresponsiveness
- Inability to control the body
- Become dizzy
- Loss of consciousness
- Unresponsiveness to the events around by being locked to a point

The appearance of these symptoms are signs that the patient will have a seizure. Epilepsy patients experience the seizure that comes as a result of these symptoms as sudden and uncontrolled contractions, clenching of teeth, a strange taste in the mouth, foam coming from the mouth, loss of consciousness, moving the eyes more than normal, losing the ability to control the intestines, accelerated heartbeat, screaming, shouting, laughing. Symptoms and how the seizure will be experienced vary according to the type of seizure. Epilepsy seizures last for 30 seconds or 2 minutes. It is useful to inform the health teams in longer seizures.
Can Hair Transplant Be Performed For Epilepsy Patients?
Can epilepsy patients undergo hair transplant? What is the success rate if it is done? The answer is among the most curious questions. Hair transplant treatment is performed for epilepsy patients. For this, they must meet certain procedures. An active epilepsy patient should use epilepsy medications regularly between 6 months and 1 year before hair transplant. No matter when and at what age the disease started, hair transplant can be performed if it is controlled with the necessary drug treatments. There is no hair transplant method specifically for epilepsy patients. They are treated with sedation to prevent them from having seizures during the operation and damaging the grafts.
