What Should I Do After Hair Transplantation?
The Process After Hair Transplantation
Before moving on to the process after the hair transplant procedure, we would like to emphasize once again the importance of finding the right specialist and performing the hair transplant procedure in a hospital environment. You can get more detailed information by contacting us.
When all procedures are completed and your hair transplant procedure is finished, the donor area will be bandaged and a bandage will be placed on your forehead and nape to prevent edema. As a precaution, your specialist will recommend you to use antibiotics and will give painkillers in case of pain. You should remember that the most important thing in this process is to follow your specialist's instructions and recommendations. After the procedure, a period of patience and 10 days of care will begin for you.
After the procedure, it is natural to feel numbness for a while in the transplantation area, which is numb due to the effect of local anesthesia. Along with numbness, itching and small pimples may occur, especially during the healing process, this is related to the structure of your skin and is temporary.
On the day following the procedure, the bandage on the donor area is removed by your specialist, and on the second day of hair transplantation, your first hair washing procedure is performed gently by your specialist.
For 4 days following the hair transplant procedure, you should lie on your back and do not remove the bandage to prevent edema. If the edema spreads, you should know that this is also a normal situation and will disappear in 2-3 days. For 10 days, you should be cautious against any contact, impact or touch. At the end of 10 days, the crusts on your hair will fall off and you will have a short cut appearance.
For 5 days after hair transplantation, you should take a break from your sex life as the pressure will damage the transplanted hair follicles.
You should not smoke and consume alcohol within 10 days after the transplantation, blood circulation is very important for the health of your hair. If you are using, our recommendation would be to minimize it.
If the transplant was done in summer, you should not be exposed to intense sunlight for an average of three months, and if it is rainy, you should protect your hair from direct rain for two weeks. You should avoid heavy sports that will put pressure on your head for a month, and you should not shorten the transplanted area with a shaver for at least 6 months. If you want to shorten your hair, you should use scissors.
1-2 months after the procedure, shock spillage will occur, your hair will look as if it has never been treated, but you will overcome this period with patience as you have been informed by your specialist about the subject.
In an average of 5-6 months, you will start to get results. During this period, your hair may grow irregularly, one side may look sparser and one side may look more lush. This is a normal and temporary process. And at the end of one year, you will have full results.
