Learning the After Hair Transplant in Hair Treatment Surgery
Transplantation is becoming more and more popular as it is currently the only viable way to restore your naturally excess hair. The hair follicles that are not genetically prone to baldness are surgically removed and transplanted onto the bald area.
The transplanted hair will grow throughout life, making the hair thicker and more youthful.
Post-hair transplant care is an important topic that hair transplant patients should be aware of and strictly follow. A bandage is only used to support a recently closed donor wound on the back of the scalp. Patients have been prescribed pain relievers and anti-inflammatory drugs for the first few days after surgery. All patients are advised to relax and avoid strenuous physical activity for the first few days.
These patients should return for a medical examination and wash their hair the day after surgery. The dressing is removed during this first visit, and the donor wound and hair transplanted are assessed. The donor and recipient areas should be washed thoroughly while the patient is taught to clean at home for two to four days after the hair transplant.
Hair washing after hair transplant surgery should be done twice a day using a particular method to minimize the chances of graft detachment. Patients ask if they cannot wash their hair for the first few days not to damage the grafts.
There are some restrictions on what patients can do after hair transplantation. Some clinics recommend strict exercise guidelines. The patient should maintain normal daily activities with some minor restrictions. During the first four weeks after surgery, actions that increase the tension on the wound edges in the donor area should be avoided. These are extreme neck flexion and weight lifting.
Hair transplant patients should return to the hair transplant Skyclinic to remove the braces and re-evaluate the donor and recipient area. Patients whose donor is closed with absorbable sutures are advised to be examined after ten days to assess the recipient’s condition and the donor area, including patients who have undergone FUE, eyebrow hair transplant, hair transplant restoration, or hair transplant. All follow-up visits are included in the initial cost of hair transplant surgery, and patients will not be charged for follow-up visits.
A patient undergoing hair restoration surgery should avoid direct exposure to sunlight on the recipient area for approximately six months after follicular unit transplant surgery. Strong direct sun exposure can damage growing grafts, and sun exposure can also cause skin discoloration.
The last visit to the doctor after hair transplantation is between the tenth and eleventh months after the hair transplant surgery when the transplanted hair grows back to its final thickness and length. All patients planning a second surgery do not need to wait that long, and a second surgery can be performed at any time 5 months after the initial hair transplant procedure.
At the end
Hair restoration patients need to be visited as required in addition to the visits listed above for a variety of reasons, and an excellent doctor-patient relationship is an important part of the success of hair restoration procedures.
