Resuming Weight Training After a Hair Transplant

Weight Training

When a person goes through a hair transplant surgery, there are a number of postoperative cautions that need to be taken. Along with rest and taking certain medications to counter the chances of an infection, some of the routine that the person maintains needs to be stopped as well for a few days. Weight training finds itself on the list of things to avoid immediately after a transplant procedure. It can be resumed later on but if started right after the surgery, it can cause damage to the work done. Following factors play an important role in determining when you should resume the weight training.

Healing Process
People heal at different rates. While some people may heal very quickly, others are likely going to take longer. It is important to keep an eye on the healing process before starting exercising and weight training to ensure that no ill effects take place.

Advice of the Doctor
The best person for advice is your doctor. Considering all the factors related to your particular case including healing, the surgeon can advise on when you can start your routine work including weight training.

Type of Procedure
There are a number of different types of hair transplant procedures that are on offer. Depending on the nature of the procedure, the time needed to restart weight training will differ. In case of strip method which is highly invasive, more time is needed to restart weight training. On the other hand, if you go through a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), you will need lesser time to recover and will be able to start weight training earlier.  

Gradual Start
Generally you can start some weight training in a couple of weeks’ time. However, it is important that you start of slowly so that the recent injuries are not affected by it. Starting off with lighter weights initially is an ideal option.  

Smoking Related Problems
About a month after the procedure, you can get back to full strength weight training. It is ideal that you consult your surgeon before you do so just to be sure.
