Many men do not pay too much attention to the state of their own hair only until the moment when the first signs of baldness appear. For a woman, hair loss is a real tragedy. There are many ways to stop hair loss, but if baldness is already noticeable, only hair transplantation can cope with the problem. The transplant surgery is simple and effective. The recovery period after hair transplant is minimal. So, what will happen to the patient in the first 2 months after the hair transplant?
After hair transplant
Modern transplantation methods are less traumatic and can significantly reduce the postoperative recovery period. After the operation, the patient can return to his usual way of life the very next day, albeit with some restrictions.
- For the first two weeks, the patient needs to carry out daily hair care with special products prescribed by the doctor.
- Also, during the first 15 days after the operation, the patient must limit any physical activity, and also avoid alcohol.
- During the first 10-14 days after transplantation, it is not recommended to use tight hats, which can exert pressure on the area of the transplanted grafts.
- During the first month after the transplant, the patient should avoid visiting the solarium, swimming pool or sauna.
It is very important to follow all the recommendations as it greatly influences the final result of the hair transplant. In addition, strict adherence to the doctor’s recommendations reduces the risk of complications.
What will be in the first 2 months after the hair transplant?
After the primary healing is over, the transplanted follicles will begin to function. Between the third and eighth week after the transplant, hair will begin to fall out (called shock loss). This is a normal phenomenon associated with the physiology and the normal life cycle of human hair. The transplanted follicles remain alive and well. After a while, new hair begins to grow from them.
