What to Do After Hair Transplant Surgery

After Hair Transplant Surgery

Most people who are expecting to go through a hair transplant surgery are often of the opinion that once the surgery is complete, their commitment to their hairs will also be completed. That is not true. The truth is that your actual exercise, for your hair, will begin once the surgery is over.

First of all you need to understand what exactly you should expect from your surgery. In most cases, once the hair transplant has taken place, the scars and the transplant procedure is undetectable after ten days. Patients go through swelling problems and for that they receive special medicines.

People who expect that their hair will start growing after a week are absolutely wrong. The new hair will take at least a year to grow back on your scalp. Therefore, you will have to wait for at least ten months so that the units start to show up on their scalp.

Let’s take a look at the things you need to do after your surgery has taken place.

iconDuring the first day after the surgery, the patient is expected to wash his/her head so that the blood stains and blood clots can be fully removed. Then the doctor will prescribe you a medicine and you will have to take it on a daily basis so that you can get rid of the swelling that has taken place.

iconAfter this has been done, you will soon have to pay your dermatologist another visit because the first sets of staples in your head need to get removed. You will have to be extra careful with your scalp and hair and try not to expose them to a lot of sunlight. Some people even prefer wearing caps, but even that is not advised by the doctors.

iconThroughout the time that you spend after your surgery, make sure that your scalp does not get exposed to a number of things for at least a week. For instance, bright sunlight is one of the things that you should avoid. Secondly, sweating is something that may cause your scars to itch a little.

iconItching, swelling and burning are all a part of the shedding routine. Your hair, once they start to grow, will cover up all these things. This is why you should always be patient after your surgery is complete.
