Preparing For Stem Cell FUE:
Like any other procedure, pre-procedural care matters a lot when it comes to results of Stem Cell FUE. Follow the tips below to get the most out of your surgery:
- Avoid aspirin and other blood thinners for at least 14 to 20 days before surgery.
- Smoking should be avoided for 2 to 3 weeks before the procedure.
- Avoid alcoholic beverages for 5 to 10 days prior to surgery.
- Get your tests done at least a couple of weeks before the scheduled date for surgery.
- Fill all your prescriptions well in advance.
Following Steps are involved in Stem Cell hair transplant procedure:
- Donor area preparation: The surgeon will start by shaving or trimming the donor area. Marking donor area is also important for efficient graft harvesting.
- Administering anaesthesia (Donor Area): To make the follicular unit extraction process virtually painless, local anaesthesia is administered to the donor area.
- Graft extraction: Once the area has been marked and numbed, the surgeon proceeds to graft harvesting. A specially designed automated punch tool is used for extracting hair follicles one by one.
- Graft preparation: the grafts thus extracted are then trimmed carefully under a powerful microscope to obtain follicular units of the desired size.
- Administering anaesthesia (recipient site): Before working on the recipient area, local anaesthesia is administered there as well to make the process virtually painless.
- Recipient area preparation: the surgeon then creates tiny holes at the recipient site in an aesthetic manner at specific angles. The direction of these holes will determine the direction of transplanted hairs.
- Graft insertion: like other hair transplantation techniques, the last step of Stem Cell FUE is also inserting grafts carefully into the tiny incisions.
- Expect your scalp to remain sore and itchy for a couple of days after the surgery
- Start taking prescribed pain medications and antibiotics immediately after the surgery
- Cold compressions will help alleviate pain and swelling, but be very gentle
- Do not expect new hair to sprout overnight
- The transplanted follicles will shed before starting to grow (shock loss)
- Transplanted hair follicles generally remain inactive for a couple of months
- Your hair will start growing at least after 4 to 6 months
- It may take 12 to 18 months before you will be able to see full results of hair transplant
Post Operative Care:
- Do not wash your scalp for a day or two after the surgery.
- Avoid touching your scalp for the first couple of weeks at least, this can cause infection.
- Avoid taking blood thinners for a couple of weeks after Stem Cell FUE Transplant.
- Smoking should be avoided for another couple of weeks following surgery.
- Avoid alcohol and alcohol containing drinks for at least a week after the hair transplant.
- Avoid sun exposure; direct sunlight is harmful to your newly transplanted hair follicles.
- Do not massage your scalp for 10 to 14 days, else you will end up damaging your recently implanted follicles.
- Picking the scab or scratching the scalp is strictly prohibited for 15 to 20 days.
